The integrated annual report titled “Advancing Business and Communities,” which is primarily the Group’s articulation of its refreshed brand positioning, was launched at the Annual Stockholders Meeting last May 15 in Makati.
Considered as one of the first among Filipino holding companies, the Aboitiz Group’s 2016 consolidated annual and sustainability report champions creating shared value as it provides a more streamlined discussion of the Group’s integrated performance on the triple bottomline of People, Planet, and Profit. Moving forward, we will use this reporting format as our way to underscore our commitment to a better world as reflected in our business strategy and communication activities.
Our Group Purpose and refreshed brand positioning inspired us to bring together our business and our impact-on- society stories through this year’s maiden release of the consolidated performance report. The structure of the report follows the Aboitiz BetterWorld sustainability framework that allows us to track, monitor, report, and evaluate our performance in a cohesive manner.
– Erramon I. Aboitiz, President and CEO, Aboitiz Group
