The Aboitiz core values of integrity, teamwork, innovation, and responsibility drive the AEV Legal Team in promoting our brand promise of advancing business and communities through each project they pursue, and their latest achievements are strong testaments to this.
On May 30, 2019, the AEV Legal Team was, once again, recognized as the In-House Community Practice Teams of the Year for Corporate Social Responsibility at the 2019 In-House Community Awards Ceremony and Celebration (IHC Awards) held at the Jockey Club Happy Valley Clubhouse in Hong Kong.
The IHC Awards aim to recognize and honor in-house teams and private practitioners who have pursued excellence and have demonstrated a range of achievements, including those in the areas of dedication, innovation, efficiency and value, integration, encouragement and improvement, and CSR and diversity, within their organization and across the region, respectively.
For four consecutive years, the AEV Legal Team has been recognized at the IHC Awards as Legal Team of the Year for various categories, such as Integration, Financing (ex-Banking), and Asian Legal Team of the Year.
The team quickly followed up their IHC win by claiming three prizes last June 11 from the Institute of Corporate Directors (ICD), which recognized Aboitiz as among the top-performing publicly-listed companies (PLC) in the 2018 ASEAN Corporate Governance Scorecard (ACGS).
As the accredited assessor for the scorecard, ICD cited 90-99 points achieved by AEV, which was equal to two Golden Arrows, and 80-89 points secured by AboitizPower, or one Golden Arrow recognition.
The ACGS is an instrument for assessment and ranking of PLCs in the region with the aim of raising its corporate governance standards and practices. The scorecard is recognized by PLCs in six participating ASEAN countries — Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam.
In November 2018, AEV and AboitizPower were also as two of the top 50 PLCs in the ASEAN Region at the 2nd ASEAN Corporate Governance Awards Ceremony held in Malaysia.
Congratulations to the AEV Legal Team!
