Integrated Report

2018 Integrated Report

Disruption Innovation Strategy

“Create breakthroughs to close the growth gap and deliver new sources of value”
- Dr. Hitendra Patel
 

Ayala is committed to integrated thinking and a strong focus on sustainability with the publication of this 2018 Integrated Report. We continue to improve our corporate reporting, giving emphasis on our value creation, strategy, and performance. This report gives a holistic view of our businesses and our impact to economy, society, and environment.

In Ayala, we keep a positive and proactive mindset and see that businesses must go beyond making profit. We ensure that our contributions are for the betterment of society and that we preserve the natural resources for future generations as we grow. This paradigm was reinforced with the launch of the UN SDGs which aligns well with our thinking. Today, we acknowledge the three megatrends that pose large threats to Filipinos while having the most relevance in the industries we are in: marginalization, untapped potential and irresponsible growth. To combat these megatrends, the Ayala Sustainability Blueprint outlines the three journeys to which we commit to take Filipinos to how we envision them by 2030. Each journey includes relevant UN SDGs with the companies from the group who will champion them. To solidify our commitment to these journeys, each champion has a core target set that is aligned with the language of the SDGs with the same deadline of 2030. These core targets will be further supported by stretch targets which may also contribute to  goals that are beyond those championed by each business unit. The stretch targets of each business unit will also be released with their corresponding key performance objectives after a careful deliberation has been accomplished. We proclaim our champions and their respective core targets as we continue to concretize their stretch targets and corresponding key performance objectives. All targets will be subjected to a review every two to three years to ensure relevance.
