On March 21, seventeen (17) members of the Lopez Group Corporate Social Responsibility Council (LCC) met at the Rockwell Business Center for their regular semestral meeting and sharing session. Dubbed as LCC Talks Series 1, the session’s main objective was for CSR practitioners of the Lopez Group to gather and share updates on community programs and sustainable development initiatives being implemented at the ground level.

For this series, four companies and three foundations were asked to share their various CSR programs and projects with the hope that it will create the impetus for resource sharing and synergy among the Lopez Group.   

FPH shared their FIRST  School project located at FPIP in Batangas. The LCC wanted to explore possible coordinative support such as raising the funds for potential expansion of numbers of student-beneficiaries as well as identifying potential employers after these students have graduated.

Another area for synergy was found in the potential of the Solar Sikat Challenge Rocket Stoves which can be used in indigenous people communities as well as its possible commercialization which would bring enormous financial benefits to its inventors.

First Gen and FPIP shared their integrated approaches to CSR which are not only aligned with their business models but also to the needs and concerns of their host communities. Strong partnerships were a common feature of these Lopez CSR Council members’ programs and projects. On the other hand, valuable lessons were generated from the sharing of EDC of the result of their CSR Strategy Review.

The newest Kapamilya was the SEA Institute whose Verde Island Passage project aims to preserve the center-of-center biodiversity spot in the country. The project is a shining example of synergy as various Lopez group members currently support this effort led by ALKFI and OMLCC.

Towards the end of the day, the Lopez Group Foundation shared the result of the collated CSR report of 2016 which was considered a benchmark in the shift to SDG reporting. The report showed almost a billion pesos collectively invested by the Lopez Group to CSR programs and projects which shows 76% internally generated and 24% coming from external donation mainly gathered by ALKFI in its humanitarian assistance program Sagip Kapamilya.

It was fitting that the day ended with a discussion on creating an group-wide employee volunteerism program. Areas for coordination was discussed and common schedules and activities were agreed upon. A relevant way to end another conversation within and among the Lopez CSR family.
