AboitizPower is the Philippines’ leading provider of renewable energy, advancing business and communities towards A Better Future.
Our CSR Legacy
The Aboitiz Group’s commitment to empowering the marginalized sector has been a century-long value since the Group’s establishment in Leyte. Don Ramon Aboitiz, one of the Group’s first leaders, started corporate philanthropy through donations to various groups and communities in need.
In 1966, Don Ramon dedicated his personal wealth to establish the Ramon Aboitiz Foundation, Inc. (RAFI). RAFI is a family-based foundation rooted in the philosophy that states “the dignity of man is best respected by helping him realize his hopes and by sharing with him the burden of his fears.”
Anchored on its vision of “Touching People, Shaping the Future,” RAFI focuses on integrated development, micro-finance and entrepreneurship, culture and heritage, leadership and citizenship, and education.
Twenty-three years later, the Aboitiz Foundation (AFI) was established as the Aboitiz Group’s corporate foundation that will handle all its CSR-related activities.
Over the years, AFI has been committed to its mission of helping people help themselves and in pursuing its vision to be the neighbor of choice. It constantly delivers value to its stakeholders, especially in the communities we operate in.
AFI’s primary efforts are focused on education, enterprise development, and environmentalism. The foundation is also the first to respond during times of calamity across the country.
Since its establishment, AFI’s initiatives have evolved from simple philanthropic activities (CSR 1.0) to leading projects that are more sustainable and aligned with the Group’s business values (CSR 2.0).
