Applications for this year’s ACCESS are now open.
Corporate sustainability is in right now. It’s the buzzword that gets serious businessmen talking, and for good reason.
Considering the sorry direction that our world is heading in, it makes sense for this generation to focus on improving the future, alongside the quest for personal success. With its promise of both, corporate sustainability seems like the best way to hit two birds with one stone.
This month, the Management Engineering Association (MEA) of the Ateneo de Manila University is opening applications for its annual “ACCESS: Corporate Sustainability Competition”. The three-day event is open to teams of five undergrads from all backgrounds (yup, even non-business majors) who want to learn more about creating a lasting impact in the corporate world.
Targeting the triple bottom line of people, planet, and profit, MEA partnered with corporate sustainability leaders Shell Philippines and San Miguel Corporation for the event, which focuses on sustainable cities.
Accepted teams get to build their knowledge at the event’s forum, mentorship session, and final case presentation where they’ll get to listen to participate in different talks and activities. The top eight teams get to move on to a mentorship session with Shell Philippines representatives before presenting their sustainability strategies with a panel of judges.
All that work won’t be for nothing, as the winning team gets to win P100,000 worth of cash prizes. Everyone still goes home a winner thanks to the learning experience. Because no matter what you say, there’s no denying that business can be a platform to improve the lives of many.
Have you got what it takes to climb that corporate sustainability ladder?
