MANILA, Philippines - Ayala-led Manila Water Co. was recognized as one of the top corporate social responsibility (CSR) advocates in Asia by the Asia Corporate Excellence and Sustainability Awards (ACES).

ACES is regional award-giving body that values and recognizes services and achievements of national and international small-scale and large-scale businesses for their significant contributions in the communities and the world.

This recognition is bestowed upon companies that lead various CSR initiatives integrated into their policies and operations with high-level participation of employees and top management involvement in these programs.

Among the sustainability initiatives of the east zone water concessionaire included the Water for the Community Program, which aimed to provide and deliver 24/7 potable water supply for marginalized communities, benefiting over 1.8 million people.

Complementing the Water for the Community Program is the Water Provision for Public Service Institutions project that reaches a broader scope by installing drinking fountains and wash areas, repairing after-the-meter pipelines, and providing sanitation facilities in several establishments such as schools, hospitals and orphanages among others.

“Manila Water’s perfect alignment between our environmental, social and economic goals puts the company in a distinct advantage to advocate and propagate CSR programs as these are already embedded in our daily operations,” Manila Water corporate operations group director Geodino Carpio said.
