Beko parent company ranked as one of the world's most sustainable firm

Beko's parent company, Arçelik A.Ş., the global leading consumer durables and electronics manufacturer, has for the second year in a row ranked on the Corporate Knights' 2022 Global 100 Index, coming in at 57th place. 

Corporate Knights Inc (CK).  is a media and research company focused on quantifying and animating sustainable economy drivers for decision makers. Its best-known rankings include the Best 50 Corporate Citizens in Canada and the Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations. CK is also proud to be the first print business magazine and research firm in the world to be a Certified B Corp.

The list of awardees has been published annually by Corporate Knights since 2005 in recognition of companies that deliver superior financial performance and lead the race to zero emissions. Their methodology is based on up to 24 key performance indicators covering resource management, employee management, financial management, clean revenue and clean investment and supplier performance.

The 2022 Global 100 Index looks at the performance of almost 7,000 companies with more than $1 billion in revenues, taking into consideration their action on environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues.

And this year’s recognition came after Arçelik reiterated its commitments to energy transformation and a more sustainable future.

"We are delighted to rank on the Corporate Knights' 2022 Global 100 Index. As a business we understand we have a commitment and a responsibility to sustainability and this recognition continues to spur us on. At Arçelik, we've taken great steps on our sustainability journey and are continuing to. We are proud of what we have achieved with all our employees, and our revised commitments to Scope 1, 2 and 3 GHG emissions are a demonstration of that,” said Arçelik CEO Hakan Bulgurlu.

As part of Arçelik’s commitment to sustainability, Beko unveiled seven sustainable products including a washing machine/washer dryer, oven, tumble dryer, refrigerator, espresso coffee maker and dishwasher to help consumers reduce their impact on the environment. The innovative products use recycled materials such as PET bottles, fishing nets; bio-composites such as coffee residue and eggshells; as well as detergent saving technologies for sustainable living.

As Europe's leading appliance brand, Beko is always looking for new technologies that help preserve nature and allow people to live a healthy lifestyle.’

"As makers of appliances, we will help ensure a more sustainable future for the next generations. We are also eager to adapt our existing technologies to make all our appliances more environmentally friendly too," said Gürhan Günal, country manager of Beko Pilipinas Corporation.

Converge accelerates disaster-proofing of network following Odette

Leading fiber broadband provider Converge ICT Solutions Inc. is working towards further protecting its nationwide fiber network from natural calamities, following the challenges in restoration brought about by the devastation of Typhoon Odette. 

“We’ve had a lot of hard-earned lessons from super typhoon Odette, particularly on ‘disaster-proofing’ the network. With downed poles and infrastructure still a problem in Cebu today, there are challenges in restoring connection. We want to make sure that we will be better prepared in the face of future calamities,” said Converge CEO Dennis Anthony Uy. 

As the fiber lines of Converge are connected through electric poles, and some streets are still impassable, last-mile connection to the homes of subscribers have been difficult to establish. Although Converge’s own network equipment is ready for service, the infrastructure of utility companies that are needed to bridge the connection subscribers’ homes are still being repaired. 

In response, Converge is planning to use its micro-trenching technology to put key connectivity elements underground, doing away with the need to rely on poles which are prone to damage during typhoons.

“In the face of increasing risks brought about by climate change, we will ensure that we establish resilient connectivity by using the latest technology to put our fiber infrastructure underground where it will not be exposed to various elements that can damage the network. We look forward to working with local and national government agencies to ensure that we can roll out more underground cables at the soonest possible time,” added Mr. Uy.

Additionally, given the reliance of the network on third-party power suppliers, Converge has  secured additional power generation sets and fuel storage to make its network self-sufficient. The company also deployed satellite phones for the use of the network restoration teams.

For its manpower response, Converge has doubled its installation and repair teams in Cebu for speedier restoration and repair in viable areas.

Last year, Converge has also put in place redundancy loops from Luzon to Visayas and Mindanao to make its network more resilient. A redundancy loop is a network structure that fortifies the primary route of the network by adding a secondary path for data to pass through in case of a failure in the main route. This makes sure there’s no service downtime and subscribers’ connection to the fiber backbone remains unhampered. This means strengthened network availability and stability.

Moreover, even before Typhoon Odette, Converge has established a dedicated Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Team to quickly respond to emergencies.

While communication networks are still being restored, Converge has diversified ways to establish alternative means of connection: In the typhoon’s landing point, Siargao, Converge immediately deployed very small aperture terminals (VSAT) or satellite connectivity to provide broadband service to the island’s communities.

Converge has also installed Wi-Fi hubs and charging stations to the affected communities through partnerships with local government units (LGUs) including Mandaue City, Cebu City, Talisay, and Lapu-Lapu in Cebu province; Tagbilaran City in Bohol; and will roll out in more affected areas.

As community relief efforts continue, Converge is closely watching network activity and coordinating with LGUs and utility companies to ensure last-mile network connection can be restored to the homes of subscribers in Cebu.

Meanwhile, pro-rated rebates will be given to subscribers in Cebu who have lost their service due to the typhoon. Converge has also temporarily suspended the disconnection of service due to non-payment to assist subscribers who are still trying to recover from the devastating typhoon.

Earlier, Converge has also provided relief goods to its affected employees and business partners as well as to hardest hit areas like Bohol and Southern Leyte.

"Every crisis presents an opportunity and with the lessons learned from Typhoon Odette, we're one with the local governments and our regional operations in building stronger, more resilient communities. Together, we will overcome this crisis and build back better,” said Mr. Uy.
