Richmond Mercurio - The Philippine Star

MANILA, Philippines — Globe Telecom Inc. has been recognized by the ASEAN Innovative Business Platform (AIBP) for its sustainability programs that focused on driving social inclusion.

Globe said it was commended for being a trailblazer on environmental, social, and governance (ESG) integration in digital innovation.

AIBP is a business unit of Industry Platform, a growth-consulting firm based in Singapore.

With a current network of over 30,000 stakeholders in Southeast Asia, AIBP continues to develop ecosystems by engaging in activities creating value-adding information for stakeholders seeking to make transformative impact.

“We are grateful to be recognized for our sustainability efforts, especially alongside our peers across the ASEAN region,” Globe chief sustainability and corporate communications officer Yoly Crisanto said.

“Guided by our purpose, we will continue to advocate ESG adoption and embed them in our decision-making and operations, as we move forward,” she said.

Globe said its various ESG programs have achieved several milestones since their inception and initial rollouts.

These include the successful shift of 14 high-energy utilization facilities to 100 percent renewable energy and deployment of over 8,500 green solutions throughout its network.

Globe, together with the Department of Agriculture’s National Fisheries Research and Development Institute, also piloted and rolled out the ISDApp platform to 600 fisherfolk in Quezon and Aurora province.

In partnership with the Department of Education, the Ayala-led telco has also successfully rolled out the Digital Thumbprint Program in 4,050 schools, providing invaluable knowledge to 175,000 teachers and 1.9 million students nationwide.

Globe Rewards, meanwhile, played an integral role in providing much-needed support at the height of the global pandemic crisis.

It raised P36 million for 10 hospitals in 2020 and another P7.8 million last year  for COVID-related advocacies.

The platform remains available to customers all year round for community assistance.

Globe raised over P13 million worth of donations for 14 partner organizations in 2021.
