Profile of 4 CEOs' social conscience
Tina Arceo-Dumlao 19 December 2004 | Philippine Daily Inquirer TF! Editorial Comment: The article below is part of a series that features CEOs who have taken to heart their corporate social responsibilities and see this as more than just token gestures for public relations and tax avoidance schemes. They are perhaps the exception rather than the rule, but a confirmation nevertheless of the transformative power of the individual and the essential role of the private sector in the development of the country and the alleviation of poverty. Interestingly, those who have proven successful, see to it that they work closely with both civil society and the government rather than go it alone. This too is a sign of the future where authentic partnerships contribute to sustainable development.
