Sustainability and CSR rewarded
A major terminal operator has won an award for its sustainability reporting and corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives.
International Container Terminal Services, Inc. (ICTSI) has earned recognition at the recently-concluded Philippine Quill Awards for its 2017 Sustainability Report (SR) and an Award of Merit for its public relations programme for Papua New Guinea communities.
Christian R. Gonzalez, ICTSI global corporate head, said: “We welcome these citations as an affirmation that our strides in further embedding the culture of sustainability to our day-to-day operations are on the right track and gaining ground. As we move towards empowering more sectors and communities in our global operations, we are hopeful that these efforts will further shape ICTSI into a stronger, more effective, and consistent performer as a Good Global Citizen.”
ICTSI’s maiden Sustainability Report for 2017 captured sustainability initiatives at the Manila International Container Terminal (MICT) and highlighted ongoing efforts across the ICTSI Group. As a facilitator in the global supply chain, ICTSI places importance on sustainability reporting, which serves as both the company’s compass and ballast, and enables an accurate evaluation of its performance targets for social, environmental and economic impacts.
The company’s stakeholder engagement program in Papua New Guinea, meanwhile, jumpstarted public-private-people partnerships with ICTSI’s host communities in its Lae and Motukea terminals. Under a pioneering arrangement, ICTSI’s host community partners became part-owners of the two PNG terminals; while at the same time placing emphasis on the development of the country’s youth in terms of law and order, sports, health and education through relevant programs.
As part of its commitment towards greater sustainability, ICTSI has widened the scope of its ESG reporting for its 2018 Sustainability Report – which will now cover eight key terminals in the Group’s portfolio.
