ADFIAP serves NRBSL request for sustainability reporting briefing

ADFIAP’s Secretary-General, Mr. Enrique Florencio, briefed the Bank’s key officers virtually on June 30, 2022, on recent trends in international business reporting using the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) framework and its guidelines, and on the processes in preparing such a report, at the request of the Nueva Ecija-based member, New Rural Bank of San Leonardo.

As part of its ongoing efforts to strengthen its internal management systems and reporting process, NRBSL intends to publish its first annual and sustainability report in order to convey its performance to its stakeholders in a comprehensive manner. Through its famed “Lima Para sa Lahat” Program, which was memorialized in Mr. Panganiban’s book “Barefoot Banking,” NRBSL pioneered modern-day microfinance operations in the province. In the years thereafter, the bank has redefined its market niche in serving small farming communities by partnering with the government’s lending program and pushing for the conversion of micro-enterprises to SME status.

Since then, the ADFIAP Secretariat in Manila has briefed and advised members on the drafting of their sustainability reports. If you require guidance or assistance in preparing your sustainability report, please contact your Secretariat at [email protected].
