Our Sustainability Journey
We began reporting on our sustainability impacts on 2016 and each year, we strived to improve our disclosures further. In line with our commitment toward perpetuating global standards of monitoring the sustainability initiatives of corporations, this year, aside from being guided by the principles of the Global Reporting Initiatives (GRI) Standards, we also endeavored to adhere to the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) Framework and was admitted as the first conglomerate SASB alliance member globally. Furthermore, we also committed to the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) as a Participant, to allow the Company to actively engage at the global level. For the 2021 report, we are also looking to align with the Financial Stability Board’s Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures.
Our sustainability framework was improved to further sharpen its investment focus of sustainability increasing the infrastructure capacity of the Philippines. From being purely investment or business driven, our new framework now focuses on how MPIC can become part of the solution to the biggest societal needs and challenges.
Our sustainability thrusts have now been defined as: Transform, Perform, and Grow, hinged on our commitment to help the country achieve UN SDG 9, which seeks to “build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization, and foster innovation.”
Furthermore, the framework’s alignment with the global Economic, Environment, Social, and Governance themes are now clearly defined into six pillars, with corresponding measurable focus areas that can be tracked and compared, year after year.
With its diverse portfolio of assets, MPIC is united by one purpose: to contribute to national progress and improve the quality of life of Filipinos. Our new Sustainability Framework is anchored on the strength of the essential services we deliver, all of which are vital for any community to thrive and be sustainable.
We manage the key impacts of these business activities by prioritizing our stakeholders and promoting a culture of accountability across the Group.
We ensure the welfare and safety of our employees and enable job creation through the continuous expansion of our services. We are committed to delivering an excellent customer experience and aspire to elevate the standards of service in our country.
We recognize our role as stewards of the environment and invest in programs that can meaningfully contribute to the areas of focus that matter most to us: Enabling genuine progress and development through our services and businesses; Protecting our planet in the conduct of our business and through technology; and Building resilience through human capital and strong communities. But our work does not end here
We are driven by our passion to make a difference, thus proactively supporting local communities through Livelihood generation; Climate adaptation and flood control; Environmental protection initiatives; Quality education; Leadership and youth advancement; and Sports development.
