SM wins at 2019 Asia Sustainability Reporting Awards
SM Investments Corp. (SMIC) won Bronze for Asia’s Best Sustainability Report (Digital) – the SMIC Sustainability Microsite category at the 5th Asia Sustainability Reporting Awards (ASRA), the most prestigious awards for reporting.
This adds to the SMIC Sustainability Report’s several international awards.
BDO also clinched Bronze for Asia’s Best Sustainability Report (First Time) Category.
SMIC’s award-winning report demonstrates the organisation’s leadership in sustainability reporting and its commitment to creating long-term value for stakeholders.
The winners were selected from 461 entries received from 16 countries in Asia. The 2019 ASRA saw 80 shortlisted companies from 13 countries competing in the finals across 19 awards categories.
As institutional investors require greater accountability regarding a company’s sustainability performance, sustainability reporting has become an essential tool for communicating how the reporting organisation manages its material economic, environmental and social impacts, risks and opportunities.
ASRA, the most prestigious recognition for sustainability reporting, has continuously raised the bar for quality and authenticity of reporting introducing a healthy competition among companies in Asia.
Mega Global continues to roll out its COVID-19 efforts
Since the start of the health crisis, Mega Global Corp. has been finding ways to serve the community, undertaking various initiatives intended to ease the burden of its employees, local communities, healthcare institutions, and the government amid the pandemic.
The company has partnered with different local government units, non-government organizations and other private organizations and has donated over 20,000 cases of Mega Global products and over 22,000 units of personal protective gears and other medical equipment distributed to most affected communities and select hospitals around the country.
Through its Mega Malasakit Kitchen and Bayani Care Package, Mega Global was able to provide more than 50,000 meals to the unsung frontliners and grocery supplies to partner merchandisers and supermarket staff.
Mega Global has partnered with the Department of Health for its BIDA Solusyon sa COVID-19 Campaign which aims to encourage Filipinos to take an active role in the fight against COVID-19 by promoting the correct behaviors, which are known by their starting letters: B – Bawal walang mask; I-sanitize ang mga kamay, iwas-hawak sa mga bagay; D – Dumitansya ng isang metro and A – Alamin ang totoong impormasyon.
As part of the partnership, Mega Global will help in rolling out BIDA information materials on virus prevention among its consumers.
The information campaign will also run on the Mega Sardines Facebook page,
The Mega Malasakit Kitchen continues to provide home-cooked meals to our tireless frontliners. Its current beneficiaries are homeless Filipinos and displaced PUJ drivers. Mega Global partnered with Autokid and the Department of Transportation for the Mega Care Caravan to reach out to transport service cooperatives, deploying meals, masks, shirts and sardines to the beneficiaries.
Globe calls for support to vulnerable communities amid the pandemic
Globe continues to find ways to empower every Filipino to help provide support to the marginalized and most vulnerable communities in the country, starting with Metro Manila.
Globe has partnered with Walang Iwanan Alliance, a new citizen-led initiative that seeks to mitigate the effects of poverty and hunger among communities amid the current situation. This is part of Globe’s ongoing initiatives to assist those whose means of livelihood were gravely affected by COVID-19.
The partnership between Globe and Walang Iwanan Alliance does not seek to solve the hunger problem but to mitigate it by empowering every Filipino to contribute in providing food to those who badly need it. The aim is to help 100,000 families with two rounds of meal support.
Walang Iwanan Alliance will take care of identifying the most vulnerable communities within the National Capital Region (NCR) and then coordinate with the local government units and affected barangays for efficient distribution.
Initial target areas in NCR are mostly the densely populated ones with identified vulnerable and underserved communities, which includes, Mandaluyong, Parañaque, Quezon City, Pasig (plus adjacent portions of Marikina City), Pateros, Caloocan and Manila.
Globe will support 5,000 families starting with Mandaluyong and Parañaque – two of the seven identified areas by Walang Iwanan Alliance. Globe also enjoins its subscribers to donate their Globe Rewards points to Walang Iwanan Alliance starting Sept. 17, 2020. Each point donated is equivalent to P1. The amount collected will then be used to buy meals worth approximately P25 each or P875 per family of five, good for 1 week of meal support.
