To improve lives through resilient businesses and risk-calculated investments that have a meaningful and lasting impact on the country’s economic and social landscape.
The Sustainable Development Goals gave us a perfect framework to which we can align ourselves and provides us with the opportunity to further our commitment to nation-building.

From these, we envisioned the Filipino of 2030 as someone with a better quality of life and is a responsible global citizen. To do so, Ayala firmly committed to three journeys:
Within the three journeys are our business units that advocate SDGs which naturally fall in place per journey and are directly aligned to their industry. Each company has set core and stretch targets that will be annually measured and reported until 2030.
Ayala Corporation champions SDGs 8, 12, and 13. The following Ayala companies are also involved in this endeavor:
