We live in an era where corporate social responsibility dictates much how a consumer behaves, prompting many businesses to carefully look at their relationships with customers, employees, and the environments where they operate.

Over the years, many studies have shown that customers are more likely to support companies that give back to society and show that there’s more to their business operations than just profit margins.

And while it is not mandated by law yet, CSR has long since evolved into a necessity for many companies, especially with more “consumers who care.”

Companies that practice social responsibility demonstrate that they also take interest in issues far greater than the financial kind, attracting customers who share the same values in the long run.

On the other side of the coin, many employees now prefer to work for organizations that underscore the triple bottom line approach of people, planet, profit.

As the practice explores the relationship between corporations, society, and nature, it helps businesses sustainably move forward while remaining relevant in their respective spaces.

To social responsibility and beyond

The presence of these creatures inside the facility is proof of the sustainable environmental conditions resulting from the steps AboitizPower has taken to operate its power plants responsibly. | Contributed Photo

Being the country’s pioneer in clean energy and responsible power solutions, AboitizPower goes beyond its commitment to providing reliable, reasonably priced, and responsibly produced energy. It seeks to uphold the welfare of its communities and take care of the environment, ensuring not only a bright future for tomorrow’s generations but also a bright present for those of us who are here today.

Now more than ever, in light of the global health crisis, people across the world need all the positive energy they can get. This is precisely what AboitizPower has been doing in the many decades it has been operating and even more so amidst this pandemic.

During times of crisis, AboitizPower is always ready to help. A testament to this was the various relief operations AboitizPower business units conducted in 2020 in response to COVID-19.

On top of this, AboitizPower also turned over by the end of last year over ₱670 million in direct remittances to its host communities. These funds are made possible by the Department of Energy’s Energy Regulations 1-94 program, a policy that requires power generators to give a share of their profits back to the areas where they operate.

Empowering communities

In partnership with the Aboitiz Foundation, the Aboitiz Group’s corporate social responsibility arm, AboitizPower constantly delivers value to its stakeholders, especially communities where it is present, focusing on areas such as education, enterprise development, and the environment.

AboitizPower believes in creating shared value with its host communities and acknowledges the latter as more than just a beneficiary, but rather a partner for positive change.

Aside from providing its stakeholders with relief assistance, financial support, or purposive scholarships, AboitizPower empowers them so they can take full ownership of the bright future they are working hard to build.

Among the programs meant to realize this are community-based disaster risk reduction and management trainings, strategic planning sessions for barangays, and the provision of agricultural implements to local farming communities, to name a few.

For many years, AboitizPower has taken care of not only its business but even more importantly the communities where it operates, spreading positive energy where it can.

This is the secret to AboitizPower’s success: striking a balance between growing its business and advancing its host communities.

AboitizPower spreads positive energy through these initiatives, which are at the heart of the company’s sustainability DNA.

Pushing the envelope further, AboitizPower continues its energy transition journey as it sets to expand its Cleanergy portfolio in the next 10 years. Cleanergy is AboitizPower’s brand for renewable energy sources from rivers, steam from under the earth, and the sun attests to the company’s promise of sustainable operations.

This transition will significantly contribute to the Philippines’ renewable energy aspirations while fueling the country’s economic growth as well as to the global sustainability goals.

Not only is AboitizPower helping keep the lights on in households across the country but also in the life of every Filipino, all towards a better future.
