Philippine investment board to businesses: rethink CSR, create Inclusive Business models Stcoks—07 Aug 18

MANILA, Philippines--7 Aug--PRNewswire/InfoQuest

The Philippine Board of Investments (BOI) is encouraging local businesses to take advantage of the 2017-2019 Investment Priorities Plan's (IPP) preference for Inclusive Business to scale up sustainable business models from existing corporate social responsibility (CSR) programs. Taking its cue from the United Nations' (UN) Sustainable Development Goals 2015-2030, the BOI reiterated the private sector's essential role in ending poverty.

"CSR has been a traditional response by the private sector to the plight of the poor. By switching from CSR to Inclusive Business, entrepreneurs can help the poor in a way that generates both business growth and creates social impact," said Philippine Trade Undersecretary and BOI Managing Head Ceferino Rodolfo.

While CSR is not profit-generating, Inclusive Business trains communities to become supplier and business partners so they can have more stable livelihood sources.

According to Business+, a joint study by the BOI and the United Nations Development Programme's (UNDP) Istanbul International Center for Private Sector in Development (IICPSD), companies can create their Inclusive Business models regardless of size.

Micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs), which make up 99.57 percent of Philippine establishments, have
