To further develop the sustainability mindset of employees across the bank, BPI conducts an annual Sustainability Summit attended by BPI employees, wherein BPI senior management updates their commitments to further integrate ESG into their respective business segments and groups via concretized Goals, Action Plans, and Metrics for Sustainability (GAMS). The event further features messages from Ayala Corporation and BPI Chairman Jaime Augusto Zobel de Ayala, BPI President and CEO Jose Teodoro Limcaoco, as well as BPI Chief Sustainability Officer and Chief Finance Officer Eric Luchangco.
Targeted to be held annually moving forward, the summit is intended to be an avenue for communicating the concretization of the Bank’s Sustainability Agenda and Strategy to the rest of the institution, and to inspire employees in further developing their sustainability initiatives.

As a means to give credit to its employees for their initiatives, the Bank also integrated a 10% sustainability component in the performance ratings of all employees including executives, officers, and staff across all segments. On top of such incentive, the BPI Sustainability Office also conducts an annual Sustainability Innovations Awards (SIA) which recognizes the most outstanding Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) initiatives in the Bank on a yearly basis.
“Sustainability has always been a high priority at BPI. We are committed to responsible banking and we will continue to champion sustainability toward a better Philippines. Our Sustainability Summit marks our commitment to make sustainability part of our mindset, our strategies, and daily activities, further embedding sustainability into BPI’s DNA.”
