Corporate Social Responsibility

PSC recognizes that the communities and neighborhoods where it operates are critical components of its long-term success. As an essential stakeholder, the Corporation strives to help create a sustainable future within these communities and neighborhoods by including them in its sustainable development goals through corporate social responsibility (CSR).

  1. Supporting communities through PFI

As early as 1989, when the Corporation extended support to communities served by 7-Eleven stores. Initially, it responded mainly to requests from the barangays (community) to extend its stores’ light to dark spots and tanod (guard) outposts. It also donated cleaning supplies such as brooms, garbage bags, and waste cans, to different barangays and supplied medicines for medical missions, and similar initiatives to improve the environment and health in different barangays near 7-Eleven stores. 

In the 1990s, donation cans were placed at the counters for customers to drop their spare coins in the can intended for charitable institutions. During calamities, some 7-Eleven stores in Metro Manila served as drop-off points for donations of relief goods. PSC Employees were encouraged to join in groups for their volunteer work for Gawad Kalinga (a program to assist in home building or cleaning), and tree planting activities.

PSC initiated the establishment of PhilSeven Foundation, Inc. (PFI) on October 2, 2007, to support its corporate social responsibility programs. The updated goals of PFI are as follows:
