EIA New Year Message 2018
Happy New Year, fellow team members!
I hope you all were able to take advantage of the joyful Christmas season to be with family and friends, and rediscover the value of sharing more of yourself towards making a positive impact on others.
In many ways that also describes how we in the Aboitiz Group opened and closed 2017: every decision we made was a bigger and better step towards supporting our Group Purpose to drive change for a better world.
We believe in going beyond profitability and fostering a deeper understanding of the key elements that have brought Aboitiz to where it is today. We are committed to our continuing legacy of being agents of change, leading and transforming industries we are in, and giving back to communities and improving their lives.
Our Group purpose drives the Aboitiz story of Advancing Business and Communities or ABC, which is our brand promise. Each of our strategic business units takes ownership of this same story by aligning the spirit behind it with their own unique way of living out our ABC.
For Power, we provide reliable and ample power supply at a reasonable and competitive price with the least possible adverse effects on our environment and host communities.
For Banking and Financial Services, we deliver smart banking and digital solutions that elevate lives and fulfill dreams through financial inclusion in the communities we serve.
For Food, we cultivate relationships with our partners to ensure the sustainability of the food chain.
For Infrastructure, we play a key role in nation building by investing in infrastructure related projects that will help drive economic progress and improve the quality of life of our fellow Filipinos.
For Land, we help people live better lives by building deliberately designed residential, commercial and industrial communities.
For CSR, we are preparing the youth for a brighter tomorrow through our education and livelihood programs, as well as our sustainability initiatives.
ABC also means taking bold steps in the Aboitiz digital transformation journey, which, in 2017, meant introducing and adopting an agile workplace designed to promote collaboration among team members and a free flow of ideas. Through this, we will harness team member potential for innovation and growth in shaping the future of our organization.
In closing, let me thank all of you for your invaluable contributions to our business and making every effort count as we continue to seek opportunities to uplift the lives of our fellow Filipinos.
We have every reason to be optimistic about the new year.
Together, let us welcome 2018 and each do our bit to make the world a better place for ourselves and others.
Happy New Year!
