The Swedish Institute’s Deputy Head of the Unit Development Program Anna Sternbeck, Enact Sustainable Strategies’ Managing Director Mattias Iweborg, and representatives from the Nordic Business Council of the Philippines visited IMI’s plant in Laguna on October 20 to know about the company’s sustainability programs and to better understand development issues of various sectors of the country.
Mary Ann Natividad, IMI’s Global Head for Business Strategies and Development, and members of the IMI Sustainability Team welcomed and answered questions from the visitors. Frederick Blancas, IMI’s Sustainability Manager, made a brief presentation about IMI and its sustainability program. Blancas said that IMI’s intention is to embed sustainability in its business strategy. He said, “IMI’s goal is to have more shared value businesses in its portfolio as it marries profit with purpose.”
Shared value businesses are enterprises that are innovative, at scale, profitable, and responsive to social and environmental issues.
