Ayala Corporation held its very first Integrated Corporate Governance, Risk Management and Sustainability Summit to drive unity among three disciplines.

“To institutionalize this perspective, we designed a long-term sustainability blueprint that lays out actionable and measurable targets that address critical environmental, social, and governance gaps that the country faces today,” said Ayala Corp. Chairman and CEO Jaime Zobel de Ayala, who was chosen in 2017 as a UN Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) Pioneer for Sustainable Business Strategy and Operations, a first in the Philippines and Southeast Asia.

“The Ayala Sustainability Blueprint, specifically designed to support the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals by 2030, will enable us to be more deliberate in monitoring and evaluating our sustainability targets and will help us allocate resources to these initiatives more appropriately,” he added.

Under the long-term sustainability blueprint, the Ayala Group aims to address critical environmental, social, and governance gaps affecting the country today and contribute tangibly to three focus areas: Access & Inclusivity and Productivity & Competitiveness for more Filipinos, and Responsible Growth & Innovation.
