BCDA pursues with enthusiasm its various corporate social responsibility programs—reaching not only people who have been directly affected by its undertakings but also those who share in the organization’s aspirations for a more caring, more nurturing Philippine society.
In responding to its stakeholders, BCDA adopts the following CSR philosophy: “We at BCDA are committed to fulfill our mandates to our stakeholders by improving the quality of life of and giving dignity to our workforce, our families, and the communties that we develop through the conversion of former military bases and other properties into premier sustainable centers of economic growth.”
The mission of BCDA, as laid down by its mandate, is to help build a strong nation and bring prosperity to all Filipinos. Its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) advocacies are focused toward that goal— achieving inclusive growth. Its various development projects are rooted in protecting the welfare and further improving the lives of people in the communities where BCDA and its subsidiaries operate.
Consistent with this CSR philosophy is the BCDA’s two-pronged approach to deliver services to its stakeholders, to with: • People-oriented projects geared toward improving life in communities and benefiting targeted stakeholders affected by BCDA development projects. Its objectives are succinctly encapsulated in its “Yaman at Kaalaman Alay sa Kapwa” (YAKAP) program.
• Environment-oriented activities for the protection, preservation and sustainable use of natural resources in project areas, which is appropriately expressed in Kalinga sa Kalikasan para sa Kabuhayan (KKK) program. The extent of BCDA’s CSR activities goes far beyond its considerable financial support to beneficiary agencies and contiguous cities and municipalities.
Recognizing the need to educate and inform the members of the AFP about the role of BCDA in the AFP Modernization Program, its contribution to nation building, and how its various projects help uplift the lives of the people in its project areas, BCDA is continuously collaborating with the AFP in its effort to engage the men and women in uniform.
Another project is the Sundalo Ko, Bayani Ko (SKBK) project, a joint CSR Project between BCDA, and its private partners— FBDC, Ayala Land, Inc. (Serendra, Bonifacio Hight Street), and Station Square East Commercial Corporation (Market! Market!)—for the benefit of the Armed Forces of the Philippines. It is a concrete response to “give back” to 125,000-strong Filipino soldiers and their dependents. It aims to provide assistance by making available promos, discounts, privileges, or other similar offerings on purchases made and services availed by soldiers from participating establishments in BGC. In support of BCDA’s “Greening SCTEX” program, BCDA, in collaboration with the Tollways Management Corporation (TMC) conducted tree-planting activities along the expressway with 2,000 seedlings planted in July, and another 2,000 seedlings in August. Again, in November, 2,000 seedlings were planted in cooperation with Jollibee Foods Corporation.
