We’ve had the great opportunity to talk to Chairman and Country Managing Partner, Wilson Tan, Deputy Managing Partner, Maria Vivian Cruz Ruiz and Partner for Climate Change and Sustainability and Head of Learning and Development, Clair Mangangey, from SGV & Co. We talk about how they help their clients with services such as non-financial reporting of environmental and assessing social impact. We also dive into how they do advisory services for sustainability, e.g. scenario analysis – which assist firms to assess the potential financial impact of climate change risks on their businesses. We talk about how SGV helps the Philippines prosper by providing trust and confidence in firms. Lastly, we also discuss how SGV is promoting sustainability from within the organization with equal opportunity for all through diversity and inclusion, and how they value gender equality highly.
Listen in on this podcast to hear about the ways in which SGV is contributing to sustainability in the Philippines. Here’s a snippet of what we talked about:
“I would like organizations to realize, that when you talk about sustainability it’s not just a unit within a company, it’s actually a way of life, that has to be integrated in the business model and the way they operate. As long as the leaders carry the tone, their people will follow it. So it’s more than their sustainability report, it’s their way of life.”
