MPIC Lauded at the 12th Asian Excellence Awards

Bags Six Laurels for Corporate Governance, Investor Relations, and CSR

Metro Manila, Philippines – 5th December 2022 – Metro Pacific Investments Corporation (MPIC) recently earned six coveted recognitions for corporate governance, investor relations, and corporate social responsibility at the 12th Asian Excellence Awards 2022 of Corporate Governance Asia.

Accolades included Asia’s Best CEO (Investor Relations) for Mr. Manuel V. Pangilinan, Asia’s Best CFO (Investor Relations) for Ms. Chaye Cabal-Revilla, Best Investors Relations Professional for MPIC VP for Investor Relations Maricris Aldover-Ysmael, Best Investor Relations Company (Philippines), Best Environmental Responsibility, and Asia’s Best CSR.

Moving forward into the new normal, MPIC remained unwavering in fulfilling its purpose of service continuity for the benefit of all its stakeholders, primarily its employees, investors, beneficiary communities, and ultimately, the environment. The Corporation’s contribution to reigniting Asia in a post-pandemic economy was to fulfill the role of a dependable government partner towards national development and to work hand-in-hand with them to serve the interests of the Filipino people.

“MPIC was established with the goal of achieving synthesis between global governance standards and Asian values and practices. We regard this award as a responsibility to set a higher standard for here in the Philippines, as well as in Asia,” says MPIC Chairman, President, and CEO Manuel V. Pangilinan. 

 

Reigniting Asia

Since its inception in 2011, the Asian Excellence Awards of Corporate Governance Asia have bestowed merits designed to recognize the achievements and excellence in management acumen, financial performance, corporate social responsibility, environmental practices and investor relations. For over a decade, they have honored individuals and companies with titles such as Best CEO, Best CFO, Best Corporate Social Responsibility, Best Environmental Practices, Best Investor Relations Company, and Best Investor Relations Professionals.

Guided by leaders who have progress in mind and purpose at heart, these individuals embodied an integral combination that ensured business resiliency and resurgence in a post-pandemic world. Their critical decisions reflect the Group’s understanding of the grave importance of MPIC’s sustainability goals, in light of current global challenges and the commitment to continued growth as a business. 

“The past years have strengthened our resolve to chart a definitive roadmap towards a more sustainable and resilient future,” says MPIC Chief Finance, Risk, and Sustainability Officer Chaye Cabal-Revilla. “We have been reminded that there is always more to the work that we do: more opportunities for growth, more communities to serve, more progress to achieve, more lives to uplift, and better tomorrow to invest in.” 

Beyond the crisis, MPIC saw an opportunity to embrace advancement and innovation: to capitalize on digital transformation, to empower more communities through long-term advocacy programs, and to strengthen positive, sustainable impact across all its subsidiaries. With the progress it has achieved throughout the year, MPIC positioned itself as a key contributor to the country’s gradual socio-economic recovery. 

 

Leading With Purposive Action

The changing times deepened and broadened environmental stewardship, corporate social responsibility and sustainability for MPIC. 

In line with its recognition for Asia’s Best CSR and Best in Environmental Responsibility, the Company heeded the call for environmental stewardship, and climate action through three specific focus areas: integrating it in the way businesses are designed, built, and operated with the least environmental and social disruption; investing in environmental protection programs such as reforestation and ecosystem preservation, most evident in Shore It Up! (SIU), the MPI Foundation’s (MPIF) fifteen-year-old flagship initiative on coastal and marine biodiversity conservation; and fortifying the protection of nature by meaningful collaborations and the use of technology. 

Centered on creating long-term benefits for its beneficiary communities, MPIC and MPIF go beyond providing handouts to those in need, and instead organize efforts that promote overall self-sufficiency like Bayan Tanim!, its community gardening program for food security and Puhunang Pangkabuhayan, its alternative livelihood program. 

Amid the challenges, the creation of the six MVP GABAY (to guide) Advocacies for a Sustainable Philippines with the rest of the MVP Group encapsulates the areas where they make the most positive difference together. These umbrellas focus on environmental stewardship, livelihood, health and sports, youth, education, and community empowerment. 

The company’s commitment to the overall improvement of people and the planet is a key testament to the accolades it receives – not just in terms of awards, but in terms of long-term impact on the whole country. MPIC aims to actively reignite change by leading with purposive action and acting with an unrelenting passion for creating a better nation. 

This recognition in Corporate Governance Asia’s Asian Excellence Awards is a testament to MPIC’s efforts to contribute to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), particularly SDG 8 Decent Work and Economic Growth, 11 Sustainable Cities and Communities, and 17 Partnerships for the Goals.
