Social Responsibility

About Petron Foundation

As the country's largest oil refining and marketing company, we continuously aspire to be socially responsible and good corporate citizens. Thus, we integrate sustainability and corporate social responsibility (CSR) programs into our business prospects. 

Through Petron Foundation Inc. (PFI), our CSR arm, we launch and maintain various initiatives that address national concerns in essential areas such as education, environment, health and human services, and other advocacies in partnership with the communities, local and national government units, like-minded organizations, and our employee-volunteers. 

Ultimately, our goal is to contribute to a brighter future for Filipinos by fueling H.O.P.E. (Helping the Filipino Children and Youth Overcome Poverty through Education), our flagship program in education.

  • 1 Doing good and telling it well

     

    We believe in the need to encourage more CSR champions from within and outside our company. 

    Advocacy plays a big part in keeping CSR an essential part of our business operation. We continue to be part of the annual celebration of the Corporate Social Responsibility Week, organized by the League of Corporate Foundations (LCF). 

    Each December, Petron employees make it a tradition to give Tulong Aral ng Petron scholars a memorable Christmas event through Project Joy. Together, they engage in a day of games, prizes, and gifts as they celebrate the holiday season. 

    Intrinsic to the success of all these undertakings is sharing our treasure trove of good stories to every stakeholder; thus, we regularly feature them in our communication materials. 

    Since 2009, we have published a Sustainability Report that details our economic, environmental, and social performances. This publication conforms to the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G3 Guidelines. Our 2009 Sustainability Report was the first by a Philippine company to attain a B+ level under the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G3 Guidelines, while our 2010 Report, also at the B+ level, received a GRI Application Level Check. This affirmation makes Petron the first Philippine oil company to receive a GRI Application Level Check using the GRI G3 Guidelines. 

    Petron is a proud member of the following organizations:
    • Philippine Business for Social Progress (Board of Trustees, Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao Regional Committees)
    • League of Corporate Foundations
    • Bataan Coastal Care Foundation
    • Corporate Network for Disaster Response
    • Junior Achievement Philippines.
  • 2 Reaping the rewards of corporate citizenship

     

    Happily, Petron has had the good fortune to be rewarded in its efforts "to do good" unto others. One success indicator has been the windfall of recognitions that its CSR programs have received from respected organizations since 1999:
