Manila Water and subsidiaries champion sustainability; release pioneering sustainability reports

Subsidiaries of Ayala-led Manila Water such as Boracay Island Water, Clark Water, and Laguna Water mark a significant milestone by releasing their first ever respective Sustainability Reports, which all comply with the GRI Level C standards of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G3.1 Guidelines, a set of internationally-recognized standards for sustainability reporting.

Taking the first step towards their own sustainability journey, the subsidiaries aligned their reports’ themes with their respective business conditions. Boracay Water focused on protecting the environment in the country’s premiere tourist destination by naming their report, “Sustaining Tourism.” Clark Water, meanwhile, highlights its contribution towards the economic development of the Clark Freeport and Special Economic Zone with the theme, “Driving Growth.” Laguna Water, given its efforts to provide clean and affordable water to low-income families in Sta. Rosa, Cabuyao and Biñan, made “Building Communities” its report’s theme.

Serving as the subsidiaries’ benchmark in sustainability reporting, Manila Water likewise released its latest Sustainability Report with the theme, “Championing Sustainability”. The 2012 Sustainability Report once again complies with Level A G3.1 standards, as well as with the ISO 20006 guidance on social responsibility. Manila Water was the first Philippine company to ever release such a report last year.

“With the release of these reports, the Manila Water group clearly demonstrates its commitment to champion sustainability and engage its stakeholders as it continues its sustainability journey,” Manila Water Sustainable Development Head Carla Beriña - Kim said.

The reports are given life by testimonials from stakeholders and program beneficiaries, and are reviewed by a panel of sustainability experts.

The reports will soon be uploaded in full on
