Message from Our Chairman and President & CEO
Business as usual is no longer an option.
Meralco’s mission is to ensure that electricity continually flows from our grid to our customers—to light up homes and offices, to power industries, and to energize our economy. But these will be for naught if the communities, cities, and the country we seek to uplift are not equipped to deal with the mounting challenges our world faces. We therefore put sustainability at the heart of One Meralco, allowing us to better empower people, protect our environment, and foster inclusive growth for a prosperous nation.
Powering the Good Life:
Our Sustainability Agenda
Powering the Good Life is Meralco’s sustainability agenda rooted in the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs). It is marked by a distinctive focus on four strategic pillars: Power, Planet, People, and Prosperity.
To learn more about the Good Life we seek to bring to our co-workers, customers, communities, and the country—today and for generations to come—please watch this video.
Institutionalizing and heightening our sustainability commitment and corporate ESG imperative, we established a Sustainability Committee in March 2021 to ensure oversight by our Board of Directors of our sustainability agenda and performance. Our Sustainability Committee is responsible for overseeing our sustainability strategy, policies, and programs. The Committee also accounts for and monitors our economic, environmental, social, and governance (EESG) performance in alignment with the UN SDGs, with the aim of delivering long-term value to all our stakeholders.
We believe that delivering value can be greatly amplified through partnerships, cognizant that true sustainable development cannot be achieved by working in silos, but rather through shared vision and action. We foster partnerships with local and international sustainability associations and organizations to promote not only knowledge and best practice sharing but also alliance-building towards the collective achievement of the UN SDGs.
