The Sustainability Committee Meeting in February will delve into the topic of Sustainable Supply Chain.


Edward Marcel Gacusana, Executive Director of Global Compact Network Philippines (GCNP), will delve into the implementation of the Ten Principles outlined by the UN Global Compact, emphasizing their role as guiding pillars for ensuring ethical practices, upholding human rights, and protecting the environment throughout supply chains. Specifically, we will explore how these Principles can be utilized to ensure sustainable supply chains, aligning with the UN Global Compact's five priority areas of action that accelerate progress across all 17 SDGs.
