Integrity planning seminarAs one of the over 2,000 signatories of the Integrity Pledge of the Integrity Initiative Project, ADFIAP was invited to participate in the “Workshop on Company Integrity Action Plan” (CIAP) organized by the Integrity Initiative and Good Governance Advocates and Practitioners of the Philippines (GGAPP), held on October 22, 2014 at the Dusit Hotel in Manila. The objective of the workshop was to help the signatories develop and implement integrity action plan for them to carry out their business ethically.

ADFIAP Training Consultant, Mr. Vic Abainza and ADFIAP Information Officer, Mr. Robert Juan, represented ADFIAP in the one-day event, attended by over 20 participants from business-organizations, finance-related and service-related companies. The workshop tackled the main focus areas in an organization that are the main considerations in the successful creation and implementation of a company integrity action plan. These areas included the top management, employees, clients, business partners, finances, government, communities, environment, as well as other key stakeholders.

The Integrity Pledge of the Integrity Initiative Project led by the Manila Business Club and the European Chamber of Commerce in the Philippines (ECCP), is part of a 4-year project funded by Siemens that aims to initiate collective action among ethical foreign and local business enterprises that wish to see the creation of fair market conditions for all market participants in the Philippines. Started in December 2010, the project’s ultimate objective is a certification and accreditation system, like the ISO, that will provide competitive advantages to compliant companies. Companies will be audited, accredited, and certified based on compliance to ethical ways of doing business and strict integrity standards.

Resource persons of the event were Mr. Blue Festin, GGAPP/Philippine Long Distance Telephone Company; Archie Matugas, Elmer Nitura, GGAPP/Smart Communications; Gil Gonzalez, GGAPP/Shoe Mart Investment; and Dante Fuentes, GGAPP/Security Bank.
