This is our way of giving back to the marginalized segment of our society. We are building a culture of sustainability, accountability, and a sense of empowerment among our stakeholders. Through this advocacy, we are showing the world that we walk the talk. We create opportunities for our stakeholders to thrive within the business milieu where Globe is engaged in"
