HOPE (GenerationHOPE Inc. & Friends of HOPE, Inc.) invests 100% of its profits in improving public school education infrastructure, agriculture interventions for smallholder farmers, and environmental initiatives in plastic waste and carbon sequestration spaces.
As an impact company, HOPE has been certified the Philippines' first B Corporation for meeting the highest standards of social and environmental transparency and accountability. It has consistently won Best for the World each year since its certification.

Plastic Credit Exchange (PCX Solutions & PCX Markets) was founded in the Philippines, one of the epicenters of the plastic pollution crisis. It was the first in the world to establish a Plastic Pollution Reduction Standard and create a fully traceable offset platform which now serves a global ecosystem of carefully vetted partners that responsibly recover, process, or recycle plastic waste with programs that improve livelihood, scales up social impact, and reduce the flow of plastic pollution into nature.

She received the NGO Leadership Award and Social Innovation Leadership Award from the Philippines Leadership Awards and was also honored as one of Forbes’ Heroes of Philanthropy.
