The Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI) is gearing up for the third edition of its much-anticipated annual Sustainability Awareness Month (SAM) this month, in alignment with the bank’s sustainability agenda.

In its steadfast commitment to responsible banking and operations, BPI has curated an engaging lineup of activities designed to encourage Filipinos to embrace a more sustainable lifestyle.

With the theme “Beyond Green,” this month-long initiative provides opportunities for the members of the public to adopt sustainable practices and become ambassadors for responsible and sustainable living.

Initially celebrating BPI’s thrust towards sustainability was the Philippine’s first Corporate Run: #BestLifeRun Corporate Race 2024, scheduled on June 9 at the Ayala Triangle Gardens. The event promoted employee health and wellness while fostering business camaraderie through a fun, healthy activity. More than 120 companies and organizations participated in this year’s corporate race.

The BPI #BestLifeRun, anticipated to attract 4,000 participants, will took along Ayala Avenue in Makati City.

On June 13, two enlightening webinars are slated to empower participants with actionable insights. “SustainableME: Power Up your Biz with Renewable Energy” shines a spotlight on BPI Ka-Negosyo Green Financing and Ka-Negosyo SOLARise solutions, catering specifically to small and medium enterprises (SMEs) to enable them to leverage renewable energy solutions for sustainable business operations.

Meanwhile, “Sustainable Investing: Driving Positive Change in the Philippine Stock Market,” conducted in collaboration between BPI Securities and the Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE), will cover the landscape of sustainable investing, emphasizing the pivotal role investors play in supporting and steering capital towards companies committed to environmental, social, and governance (ESG) principles.

On June 18, BPI’s Sustainable Development Finance (SDF) will hold Business Talks conducted by renowned thought leaders who aspire to strengthen the business case for sustainability in manufacturing.

The forum will consist of an economic briefing and discussions on industry-related regulatory updates, including insights on emerging trends in energy efficiency, resource efficiency, as well as sustainable water and pollution control.

While the whole month of June will see daily face-to-face and online educational events related to Sustainability, the 24th will be dedicated to a corporate BPI cash management solution called BizLink. The event titled “BizLink: Maximizing Business Growth and Environmental Impact” will introduce digital solutions tailored for the cash management needs of Philippine companies. New BizLink features include the new Mobile Check Deposit Facility.

On June 26, part of the SAM festivities will be the “Beyond Green: Sustainable Agricultural Technologies and Poultry Practices.” The event will introduce new innovations in the agriculture sector, specifically poultry production and waste management innovations. Vertical Farming and Soil Conditioning will also be launched as the new projects under BPI’s Sustainable Agriculture program which falls under BPI’s 16-year old umbrella program called Sustainable Development Finance (SDF).
