Corporate Governance in PLDT
PLDT is committed to the highest standards of corporate governance as articulated in our Articles of Incorporation, By-Laws, Manual on Corporate Governance (CG Manual), Code of Business Conduct and Ethics (Code of Ethics), and pertinent laws, rules and regulations.
As a publicly-listed Philippine corporation, PLDT is covered by corporate governance rules and regulations of the Philippine Securities and Exchange Commission (Philippine SEC) and the Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE). At the same time, PLDT voluntarily complies with the corporate governance standards of the United States since its American Depositary Shares are listed and traded in the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE). PLDT as an associated company of First Pacific Company Ltd. (First Pacific), which is listed in the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, also looks to the corporate governance standards of Hong Kong for guidance and benchmarking purposes..
PLDT continues to benchmark against recognized international best practices and monitor developments in corporate governance in order to elevate the Company’s CG structures, processes, and practices to global standards. Most importantly, it endeavors to venture beyond compliance and promote an ethical corporate culture guided by the principles of Accountability, Integrity, Fairness and Transparency.
Message from the Chairman
Corporate Governance was the cornerstone of our strategy when First Pacific made its investment in PLDT in 1998. We continue to build upon this foundation and recognize the critical role of good corporate governance in ensuring PLDT’s sustained growth and profitability.
Message from the President and CEO
In PLDT, if it ain’t broke, we make it better. Just as we strive to make our products and services better than ever, we also strive with even greater enthusiasm to continuously uplift our management and governance practices.
