MANILA, Philippines — The Aboitiz Group is allocating capital expenditures of almost P78 billion this year, 10 percent higher than the P70 billion utilized in 2022, as part of its continuing Great Transformation journey.

The capex will enable the Aboitiz Group to invest in renewable energy and new businesses for its portfolio diversification and to fuel its innovation-driven growth, said Aboitiz Group president and CEO Sabin Aboitiz.

“By embracing a bold vision of sustainable progress, we are not only transforming our business but also making a positive impact on our country. Our investments in renewable energy and innovation are paving the way towards a brighter future, and we are excited to be leading the charge towards a more sustainable tomorrow,” Aboitiz said.
