Teleperformance taps Aboitiz unit for RE use

Business Process Outsourcing firm Teleperformance made good on its environmental sustainability pledge by sourcing renewable energy from AboitizPower retailer Adventenergy Inc. Teleperformance will utilize 100 percent Cleanergy, AboitizPower’s brand for renewable energy, to operate their Bacolod and Sucat offices, and has set their sights on switching more offices to Cleanergy in the coming years.

With over 57,000 employees operating in 23 business sites all over the country, Teleperformance is one of the biggest BPO companies locally.

With their switch to Cleanergy, Teleperformance will leave a mark in the country as one of the first BPOs to utilize renewable energy in their operations.

BPOs consume energy around-the-clock which makes this switch a significant contributor in decarbonizing the country.

The company hopes to prompt other BPOs in the country to make the environmentally conscious choice of switching to renewable energy.

Teleperformance Philippines chief executive officer Francisco Lara explained how BPOs can take a step further in creating a lasting difference.

“As BPOs, we had made a positive impact by providing thousands of jobs to career-seekers. We have the resources to take it a step further and shift the focus on climate security given the alarming damages in our communities brought about by climate change. The transition to Renewable Energy is one of the easiest steps we can take so long as we have a reliable partner such as AboitizPower to guide us through the process”, said Lara.

Sandro Aboitiz, senior vice president for Commercial Operations at AboitizPower highlighted the benefit of choosing renewable electricity for businesses.

“We are happy to help boost the Department of Energy Green Energy Option Program to promote the utilization and development of renewable energy in the country. Through this program, we are able to rally various industries under one goal of achieving environmental sustainability and energy security through the use of Cleanergy,” Aboitiz explained.
