Towards Creating Shared Value
Today, the Aboitiz Group is at the cusp of creating
shared value. No organization can exist for very
long without a larger purpose. We constantly ask
ourselves whether there is a better way to create
long-term value for all our stakeholders.
Our enterprise will only be truly sustainable and
enduring if all our stakeholders, including our team
members, our host communities and society at
large, benefit from our value creation efforts. As the
Group pursues further growth, we are facing greater
expectations from our stakeholders to help address a
|variety of societal challenges, while generating value
for our businesses.
We have identified existing shared value initiatives
across the Group, and we will expand them as well as
create new ones to ensure a more sustainable social
impact and deliver the promise of greater good. We
are guided by the Aboitiz BetterWorld sustainability
mindset: We can do well by doing good, always
making the right long-term decisions that balance the
interest of people, planet and profit.

anticipated positive results without the dedication
