Business E-Journal June 2023

We are proud to present our June 2023 Journal issue, spotlighting our efforts in promoting responsible business conduct, in line with the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises. These guidelines have shaped our vision of integrating environmental, social, and governance (ESG)factors into our operations.

We are deeply committed to making a significant contribution to the global net-zero target. It is exhilarating to be part of a movement that’s reimagining our built environment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions dramatically. This forms a vital part of our narrative as we navigate the challenges of the 21st century.

Our recent activities embody the spirit of engagement and collaboration. We hosted a successful virtual briefing on the Extended Producer Responsibility Act of 2022, sparking vital discussions about the role of businesses in environmental sustainability. Our fruitful meetings with the Philippine Ambassador to Switzerland together with representatives from member-companies, Novartis and Ivoclar Vivadent, underscored our shared goals. A visit to the Base Bahay Foundation exemplified our dedication to sustainable social impact.

Another innovation from member-company, Impact Acoustic, which expanded its popular ARCHISONIC® range with a recycled fabric, showcasing innovative approaches to sustainability. Moreover, SikaBond®-T100, a product that encapsulates our commitment to green solutions, is now nominated for the prestigious GreenStep 2023 Product Award.

In the healthcare sector, Roche (Philippines) Inc. is leading the way insustainable system-shaping, focusing on a model that promotesresilience, affordability, and inclusivity.

Our member spotlight this month is on Target Display, a company whosestellar contributions have enriched the Swiss-Philippine businesslandscape.

As we look forward to the rest of 2023, we are excited about the opportunities and challenges ahead. We will continue to build on these successes, upholding our commitment to responsible business practices, and striving towards a sustainable future.
