Metro Pacific bags futuristic plum

Infrastructure-oriented conglomerate Metro Pacific Investments Corp clinched the most coveted Finance for the Future Award for Embedding an Integrated Approach (Listed Companies) at the 10th Finance for the Future Awards held yesterday, 4 October.

A partnership between Accounting for Sustainability, Deloitte, and the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales, the Finance for the Future Awards recognized organizations and individuals that support the integration of sustainability into financial decision-making.

After a rigorous three-stage judging process, MPIC bested seven other international and equally competitive publicly-listed companies from across the globe.

“People, planet, and long-term impact are at the core of our work,” MPIC chairperson, President, and CEO Manuel V. Pangilinan said.

“We view this as an obligation to future generations of Filipinos. We will never stop pursuing sustainable growth,” he added.

Across six categories, 33 finalists from 13 countries all over the world were celebrated at the Awards, which prides itself on being one of the few remaining, solely merit-based sustainability accolades globally.

The awards ceremony was held in London with hybrid attendance by leading businesses around the world. MPIC participated and received the award online.
