CEO SDG CIRCLE FORUM with JAIME AUGUSTO ZOBEL DE AYALA

GLOBAL COMPACT NETWORK PHILIPPINES LAUNCHES CEO SDG CIRCLE FORUM WITH UN GLOBAL COMPACT SDG PIONEER

GLOBAL COMPACT NETWORK PHILIPPINES LAUNCHES

CEO SDG CIRCLE FORUM with JAIME AUGUSTO ZOBEL DE AYALA

Bonifacio Global City, Philippines – UN Sustainable Development Goals 2017 Pioneer, Jaime

Augusto Zobel de Ayala, shared the journey of Ayala on sustainability in an informal chat with

an exclusive group of CEOs and high-level executives held recently at the Shangri-la Hotel at

the Fort. The CEO SDG Circle Forum is one of the major initiatives of the Global Compact

Network Philippines (GCNP) this year.

The GCNP is the local entity of the United Nations Global Compact, a voluntary initiative

whose primary goal is to inspire and promote collaboration primarily among business

corporations by encouraging the alignment of strategies and operations with ten universal

principles on human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption, and take actions that

advance societal goals through the SDG goals and develop a sustainable community. With

more than 9,500 companies and 3,000 organizations, based in over 160 countries and more

than 70 Local Networks, it is spreading the word that companies everywhere — of all sizes

and from all sectors — can play a role in improving the world.

In the Forum, Mr. Zobel de Ayala shared that he started with 15 to 20% of his time in the late

80’s to the non-profit sector. “I tried in my own way to start making a difference in nonbusiness

issues, issues that perhaps help the country in a broad way. I lead a number of

initiatives such as chaired Children’s Hour initiative, and brought a consortium with the help

of Ayala Foundation and brought computers in public schools….”

“My thinking continued to evolve: using the concept of shared value from Harvard School…

about beginning to align the goals of the company with the development goals of the

country.”

Mr. Zobel de Ayala continued to explain that he started to transform Ayala about 15 years

ago and made it more relevant to the needs of the country, by developing products and

services which also touch low income groups. He highlighted the importance of promoting

the spirit of bayanihan and of aligning the goals of the corporation with the national

development goals of the country because it makes the organization more relevant.

On the SDG, Mr. Zobel de Ayala said that “The SDG.….. is an extraordinary framework. It’s

clear. People are aligning to it globally. It’s United Nations-driven.” He felt that most

companies are judged by Profit and Loss statements but it was equally important to look at

how companies can contribute to issues like employment or health and be able to put a

framework around it. He felt that it is time for private corporations to be recognized for such

efforts.

Mr. Jose Teodoro “TG” Limcaoco, Chief Finance Officer, Chief Risk Officer, Chief Sustainability

Officer and Managing Director of Ayala Corporation also joined the discussion and explained

why SMEs can follow the sustainable path. With SMEs contributing to 99% of the

employment of the country, Mr. Limcaoco explained that SME need only to take one or two

SDGs that are relevant to its business to start with. It is more important to find out what

would work well for the business so that it can also help grow the business and the community

it operates in.

Mr. Limcaoco also mentioned that sustainability can equal to profitability. This has been

proven by the way Ayala has established its operations around sustainability. “It is about

building business models around sustainability”, said Limcaoco.


The United Nations and the GCNP presented a plaque of recognition to Mr. Jaime Augusto

Zobel de Ayala in the recently concluded CEO SDG Circle Forum.
