  • What is the Aboitiz No Impact Challenge?

The Aboitiz No Impact Challenge is our own version of the No Impact Project, a global, environmental, non-profit initiative that invites people to discover how living with less impact to the environment actually has benefits to our overall well-being.

This corporate carbon cleanse activity comes in the form of an exciting inter-team competition that highlights both individual and team ability to reduce carbon footprint.

For six weeks, Aboitiz team members were grouped into teams designed to foster healthy competition with the goal of completing a series of carbon cleansing challenges.

This activity is part of the company’s year-long campaign, Race to Reduce 2.0 (R2R 2.0), which calls on team members to embrace the BetterWorld mindset by making more sustainabe choices both at work and at home. The step by step approach encourages everyone to reduce consumption, waste and eventually, environmental impact. It’s the little things we do that create a BetterWorld.

  • Why are we doing this?

Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do here in Aboitiz and taking care of the planet is part of our triple bottom line. As A-People, we can best demonstrate our core value of Responsibility through the lifestyle decisions we make.

Through this fun and exciting activity, the Aboitiz No Impact Challenge instills the BetterWorld mindset to team members and empowers them to foster a sustainable way of life.
