(The Philippine Star) - September 15, 2019 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines — Ayala Foundation, the social development arm of the Ayala group, strengthens its commitment to driving social value in its operations, as it becomes the first organization in the Philippines (and in Asia) to receive a Social Value Certificate.

The Level One Certificate was given by Social Value International, a global network that focuses on social impact and social value.

This means that the foundation is committed to implementing “systems and processes that are consistent with the Social Value Principles.”

According to the certifying body, “These systems and processes will help Ayala Foundation to measure, manage, and maximize their social value.”

The certificate was awarded to the foundation following a stringent examination process. Covering a two-year period, the certificate also expresses the foundation’s commitment to progressing to the next levels – Level Two (Implement) and Level Three (Maximize).

The Social Value Certificate proves that Ayala Foundation’s initiatives in managing its social impact are aligned with international standards.

It also shows that the foundation is following a clear pathway in managing and maximizing its social impact.

In the past year Ayala Foundation has sharpened its focus on measuring the impact of its programs.

Using the principles and methods of Social Return on Investment as a framework to measure social value, the foundation looks closely at how deeply and how sustainably an intervention impacts its stakeholders, while also showing possible areas for improvement.
