Today I'm talking to Chairman and Country Managing Partner, Wilson Tan, Deputy Managing Partner, Maria Vivian Cruz Ruiz and Partner for Climate Change and Sustainability and Head of Learning and Development, Clair Mangangey, from SGV & Co. We talk about how they help their clients with services such as non-financial reporting of environmental and social impact. We also dive into how they do consulting for sustainability, e.g. scenario analysis - which offers firms to see what the financial impact will be on their books if the temperature increases by 2 degrees. We talk about how SGV helps the Philippines prosper by providing trust and confidence in firms through consistent reporting. Lastly, we also discuss how SGV is promoting sustainability from within the organization with equal opportunity for all through diversity and inclusion, and how they value gender equality highly.
