First Gen launches online ESG platform

First Gen plants resume operations

Lopez-led First Gen Corporation has launched its online environment, social and governance (ESG) platform, a public, consolidated, and searchable profile on its website that summarizes the company’s approach to sustainability. 

Apart from providing insightful and easily accessible information on the impact of First Gen’s activities across the three ESG areas, the profile captures the company’s strategic journey towards regeneration and its commitment to all its stakeholders. This profile allows stakeholders to conveniently review and stay in touch with First Gen’s rapidly evolving ESG practices. 

“We are pleased to announce the launch of First Gen’s online ESG profile. By pioneering this effort, we are early adopters of a transparent, comprehensive and real time platform to share our company-wide ESG commitments. While this summarizes our ESG efforts, we also plan to use this as a tool to benchmark against international best practices,” First Gen Investor Relations Head Valerie Dy Sun-Lim said in a statement.

“As ESG standards gain stronger traction globally, we acknowledge the need for greater transparency and easier access to companies’ ESG-related information. This initiative is a collaborative effort across the business, including our external partner, Churchgate Partners,” she added.

Churchgate Partners is an international investor relations (IR) firm providing market analysis and communication solutions across global capital markets through ESG World, an online proprietary platform it developed.

“We are delighted to have partnered with First Gen in launching its ESG Profile and leading the way in the Philippines. The profile succinctly captures the multiple ESG touch points being implemented across the firm, management’s commitment to long-term sustainability and the highly impactful nature of the underlying business as a clean fuel independent power producer,” said Churchgate Partners Chairman Sumir Bhardwaj.
