SM Investments Corporation (SM) reiterated its commitment to integrate sustainable development goals (SDGs) into corporate reporting in a regional summit.
SM President and Chief Executive Officer Frederic C. DyBuncio delivers the acceptance speech for SM’s inclusion in UNGC.
The 2019 regional summit builds on the momentum of the first Sustainability Summit of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) held in October 2018 with SM and the Philippine Business for Environment.
“Sustainability is integral to SM’s business as we drive positive impact to the communities we serve. SM continues to be a partner for sustainable development as we align with the UN SDGs and UN Global Compact both in our operations and reporting standards,” SM President and Chief Executive Officer Frederic C. DyBuncio said.
In 2018, all listed companies within the SM group published comprehensive sustainability reports, all of which were certified by GRI.
The 17 SDGs or Global Goals are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that people enjoy peace and prosperity.
