LCF gears up for technology-focused CSR Conference and Expo 2024

"The League's stand is that technological innovations can be properly harnessed, such that their ill effects upon society can be mitigated; and that technology offers an abiding opportunity for corporate collaboration, whether between corporates or with other sectors, to achieve monumental and lasting impact upon societal challenges both new and old." ~Shem Jose W. Garcia, LCF Vice-Chair and Executive Director, Vivant Foundation, Inc.

To help corporates bring about an Inclusive Future through harnessing CSR and ESG.

The much-anticipated annual corporate social responsibility (CSR) event in the country, the 2023 CSR Expo, which is organized by the League of Corporate Foundations (LCF). This year's CSR Expo, themed "Reimagining a New and Inclusive Future," will focus on technology, Al, and digitalization, as well as how corporates can use CSR and ESG principles to make these technologies truly inclusive. This event intends to assist corporations in ensuring that the beneficial effects of technology exceed the negative ones, thereby benefiting the 51% of Filipinos who live in poverty.

In the face of rapid technological advancements and innovations, such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), the League of Corporate Foundations (LCF) has embarked on a mission to assist corporations harnessing the vast potential of technology for societal benefit through Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Environment, Social, and Governance (ESG) reporting. LCF is preparing for the widely anticipated annual event, the 2024 CSR Conference and Expo, which will be held on July 3-4 at the Dusit Thani Manila in Makati City.

The LCF CSR Expo will also allow corporations to learn about and discuss how Al and other revolutionary technologies can help with societal and national development, particularly in areas such as health services, resilience, livelihood, education, financial and cultural diversity, and inclusivity.

"The 2024 Conference will imagine a future where people and communities can harness the power of technology, Al, and the digital space, including the careful implementation of Al and other new technologies to form a truly new and inclusive future if aligned with CSR and ESG principles at the outset." ~Sebastian C. Quiniones, LCF Chair and Executive Director, Pilipinas Shell Foundation, Inc.

A venue for cross-sectoral collaboration
The 2024 CSR Expo expects to bring together over 200 participants, including corporates, actors in social development space, and technology firms that will co-create solutions aimed at achieving meaningful and collective impact.

Outstanding CSR initiatives
LCF is also set to announce the winners of the 2024 Guild Awards on the evening of July 3 at Dusit Thani Manila. The awards program upholds exemplary CSR initiatives undertaken by LCF members.

For the first time, the League will present the CSR Medal of Recognition to non-members to recognize their contributions to their communities. The Medal of Recognition honors the interventional efforts of non-members such as Chambers of Commerce,  Jaycees, Rotary, Kiwanis, and Top 1000 businesses, among others. This special award will highlight firms' contributions in seven theme areas: arts and culture, disaster resilience, education, the environment, enterprise development, financial inclusion, and healthcare.

The 2024 CSR Expo will also have a concurrent exhibit at the Glorietta Activity Center on July 4 to 5, highlighting exemplary CSR initiatives undertaken by LCF members and non-members alike. At least 50 exhibitors are to participate in the exhibit. The Medal of Recognition Awarding Ceremony will also be held at the conclusion of the exhibit.
