First Gen Corporation has launched its online environmental, social and governance (ESG) platform, a public, consolidated and searchable profile on its website that summarizes the company’s approach to sustainability.
“We are pleased to announce the launch of First Gen’s online ESG profile. By pioneering this effort, we are early adopters of a transparent, comprehensive and real-time platform to share our company-wide ESG commitments. While this summarizes our ESG efforts, we also plan to use this as a tool to benchmark against international best practices,” said Valerie Dy SunLim, finance vice president and head of First Gen’s Investor Relations department.
Apart from providing insightful and easily accessible information on the positive impact First Gen has across the three ESG areas, the profile captures the company’s strategic journey towards regeneration and its commitment to its stakeholders. This profile allows stakeholders to conveniently review and stay in touch with First Gen’s rapidly evolving ESG practices.
“As ESG standards gain stronger traction globally, we acknowledge the need for greater transparency and easier access to companies’ ESG-related information. This initiative is a collaborative effort across the business, including our external partner, Churchgate Partners,” said Dy Sun-Lim.
Churchgate Partners is an international investor relations firm providing market analysis and communication solutions across global capital markets through ESG World, an online proprietary platform it developed.
Sumir Bhardwaj, chairman of Churchgate Partners, said: “We are delighted to have partnered with First Gen in launching its ESG profile and leading the way in the Philippines. The profile succinctly captures the multiple ESG touchpoints being implemented across the firm, management’s commitment to long-term sustainability and the highly impactful nature of the underlying business as a clean fuel independent power producer.”
“By viewing our online ESG profile, you will learn about the ways in which we support our newly crafted mission of ‘forging collaborative pathways for a decarbonized and regenerative future,’” added Dy Sun-Lim. (Story by: Joel Gaborni)
