Mandatory seminars are conducted to impress upon and refresh all employees’ awareness and understanding of the Company’s Manual of Corporate Governance and Code of Ethics and Business Conduct, as well as the underlying principles of corporate governance and ethical behavior and conduct for the Company.

In 2011, the Board mandated a Corporate Governance Seminar for all employees. This was followed by a mandate in 2012 requiring all newly-hired employees to attend a new hires’ seminar and an annual Quality Focus seminar which includes an orientation on the Company’s Manual of Corporate Governance and Code of Ethics and Business Conduct.

In 2013, the Company launched its online Corporate Governance E-learning Course for all newly-hired employees. This was taken by all employees through a web-based portal with a standard test, the results of which are reported to management and the Board Corporate Governance Committee.

On July 24, 2014, in compliance with Memorandum Circular 20, Series of 2013 of the Securities and Exchange Commission and in partnership with the Institute of Corporate Directors, the Company held its Aboitiz Annual Corporate Governance Seminar at its principal office in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City. This seminar was attended by the Company’s Board of Directors and key officers.

On March 25, 2015, the Company conducted its 2015 Aboitiz Annual Corporate Governance Seminar in Taguig City, which was attended by around forty directors and key officer. This seminar was again conducted in partnership with the Institute of Corporate Directors.

On March 28, 2016, the Company together with Aboitiz Equity Ventures, Inc.(AEV) conducted their first In-House Mandatory Corporate Governance Seminar in Shangri-La at the Fort, the Manila. The seminar was attended by over fifty participants composed of AEV and AboitizPower’s Directors and Key Officers.

On March 28, 2017, the Directors and Key Officers of the Company attended the  PARIMA seminar and March 29, 2017 Executive Briefing.

AboitizPower is managed with the same view of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) as AEV. CSR is a way for businesses enterprises like the Company, to manage its business processes to produce an overall impact to society. As a corporate citizen, it is our Company’s continuing commitment to behave ethically and contribute to the economic development while improving the quality of life of its workforce, their families, our customers, our local communities, our government and society at large whilst committed to sustainability. Bottom line being, that Corporate Social Responsibility is about business giving back to society and acting in an ethical and transparent manner in all its dealings with all stakeholders in society.

We have been practicing Corporate Social Responsibility long before the word has become a modern day corporate buzzword. We believe that CSR is an integral part of how we operate our businesses and part and parcel of our overall governance and philosophy of being responsible members of our society by sharing and being a neighbour of choice wherever our companies operate.

In 1965 or 47 years ago, Don Ramon Aboitiz gave a big part of his personal wealth to establish the Ramon Aboitiz Foundation, Inc. It is one of the largest shareholders of the Company. Our Company was one of the founding members of the Philippine Business for Social Progress when it was established in 1979 and today is still active in both the Board of Trustees and Regional Executive Committees. As the Aboitiz Group grew, CSR began to take on a much broader and more meaningful perspective; it was no longer merely about doing philanthropic acts but also reaching out to partners within our different communities. It has since evolved into a more organized, structured, and professionalised commitment from a dedicated team and from the Aboitiz workforce.

Thus, in 1988, the Aboitiz Group established the Aboitiz Foundation as the social development arm of the Aboitiz corporate group. CSR teams from business units nationwide were formed and now work together with the Aboitiz Foundation in areas where our companies are located. These BUs are mandated to allocate a percentage of their profits every year to fund the Foundation’s projects in their respective areas of operations and be the neighbour or choice to their host communities.

The focus areas of our group CSR are primarily education, enterprise development, health and environment. Over the last five (5) years, we have allocated Php 1.5 billion for our various CSR projects. For 2012 alone, Php 390 million was earmarked for projects. In addition, Aboitiz Foundation has collaborated and partnered with other organizations and foundations when there was alignment of goals or when a greater need of society required more interdependent CSR strategies were required to assist society.
