Our Approach

To drive sustainability throughout its business, Aboitiz focuses on three key areas based on the triple bottom line approach of people, planet, and profit where it believes it can make the greatest difference to the Group and its stakeholders.
Our Approach
Aboitiz Sustainability Framework

We can do well by doing good, always making the right long-term decisions that balance the interests of people, planet, and profit. We are committed to a mindset that views sustainability not as a cost of doing business, but as a way of doing good business. Sustainability is an integral part of our business strategy. We focus on three key areas where the ESG dimensions are present – our triple bottom line approach of people, planet, and profit. This framework is used to set targets, improve performance, and extend the scope of the value it creates.
