EDC Integrated
Report 2022

About the Report

We are proud to present the 2022 Integrated Report <IR> of the Energy Development Corporation (EDC), prepared following the reporting framework set forth by the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC). This report covers our financial, environmental, social, and governance performance from January 1 to December 31, 2022.

The EDC 2022 Integrated Report centers on various aspects, such as our different capitals, systematized approaches, and stories. We utilize this approach to ensure we transparently report our activities and operations to our stakeholders, public and private partners, clients, and communities. As a company, EDC is dedicated to achieving long-term business growth while promoting the inclusive growth of our local communities and the Philippines. Our stories with the communities we work with serve as a testament to this commitment.

For more than ten years, we have adhered to reporting practices that encompass critical aspects of social, governance, human resource management, health and safety, and environmental responsibility. Our reporting approach has allowed us to showcase our performance beyond financial terms, and in this report, we demonstrate our commitment to elevating everything we touch. 

This report also outlines our holistic approach to business, which considers the six distinct but interconnected capitals outlined in the International <IR> Framework. By strategically utilizing these capitals, we transform them into outputs that add value to our stakeholders. As such, this report features details on our strategy, governance, and management of our capitals, namely:

We’ve added more value to our report by integrating the EDC Stakeholder Pentad Framework with our capitals. This framework is based on our mission and helps us understand our relationships with stakeholders and shareholders.

The Stakeholder Pentad Framework is a powerful tool that guides our decision-making. It emphasizes the need to balance the needs of all five stakeholders: our customers, co-creators (employees, suppliers, contractors), the Earth, communities, and investors.
Integrating our capitals with our stakeholder framework shows how each capital is essential to our stakeholders and how they contribute to our mission of creating collaborative pathways towards a decarbonized and regenerative future.

We welcome feedback and appreciate suggestions for making our report more meaningful and valuable to our stakeholders. For comments and suggestions, please get in touch with:

Reporting Framework and Standards

Integrated Reporting
IR Standards

In 2020, EDC shifted to the International Integrated Report Framework to enhance the integration of its capitals within its business operations and its strategies to create value over time for its stakeholders and shareholders. These capitals are financial, manufactured, human, social and relationship, intellectual, and natural. With this framework, EDC can improve the quality of information it discloses and enhance accountability and stewardship among the capitals and their interdependencies.

Global Reporting
Initiative (GRI) Standards

EDC prepared this report following the GRI Standards: Comprehensive option. EDC has been using the GRI Standards to disclose and discuss its material topics for over ten (10) years. It takes advantage of the modularity, clear structure, and comparability of the relevant disclosures of the framework.


The GRI Standards are among the most widely used as they are considered the gold standard in sustainability reporting.

Organizations use it to report their economic, environmental, and societal impacts.

Task Force for
Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD)

The TCFD is established to develop climate-related disclosures and further understand the concentrations of carbon-related assets and exposures to climate-related risks. The EDC 2022 Integrated Report follows the TCFD Framework, ensuring that the governance structures, business strategies, environmental impacts and disclosures, and future metrics and targets of the Company are aligned with the global requirements. 


External assurers have rigorously reviewed the EDC 2021 Integrated Report to ensure the accuracy and balance of disclosures. EDC will use its insights and recommendations to enhance and guide our organization’s reporting practices and disclosures.

Our Stakeholder Pentad Framework

Our mission is to create a regenerative society through collaboration. We have adopted the Stakeholder Pentad Framework to guide our organization and outline our relationships with those we serve, partner with, and work with. This ecosystem approach requires us to balance the needs of our five stakeholders in a way that creates exponential good: customers, co-creators (employees, suppliers, contractors), Earth, communities, and investors.

We are committed to meeting our customers’ needs for reliable and affordable renewable energy while continuously improving all our capitals to ensure their satisfaction and contribute to the interests of our other stakeholders.
