The United Nations' recent declaration of access to water and sanitation as a fundamental human right is consistent with our commitments at Manila Water. Manila Water endeavors to do its share in alleviating the problem by taking the "triple bottom line" approach to address issues in areas where we operate.

This approach aligns economic viability, social responsibility, and environmental sustainability in all aspects of our business, creating shared value for the company and all stakeholders. moving forward, we shall continue to be guided by the triple bottom line as we sustain our business, the communities we serve, and the environment within which we operate.

IMI is deeply committed to sustainability as it strives to be a great company, one that keeps a balance between profitability and responsibility towards its stakeholders and the environment. Doing business today has gone beyond mere profit making. A business, to enhance its relevance, must become a productive force for change through sustainability initiatives. Doing business is beyond good governance. We want to make an impact on society and the environment, hence our paramount concern for the Ps—people (our stakeholders and the community), profit, and the planet.

Sustainability is a continuing journey for Ayala Land, and we will strive to constantly innovate and improve our sustainability performance and reporting going forward. Our challenge is in providing the right kinds of products that address the need to minimize the environmental impact of the communities we create and respond to the increasing demands of a growing market for sustainability. The need to address important social issues also remains a priority, along with the responsibility of ensuring the future viability of our business so we can continue to help uplift the lives of many.
