Developmental Social Enterprise Awards (DSEA)

Honoring social enterprises that values citizenship, sustainability and social responsibility.

PwC Philippines had recognized Filipino enterprises committed to social objectives through the Developmental Social Enterprise Awards (DSEA).

In 2014, our firm partnered with a social enterprise foundation to hold the first ever award of its kind in the country. Isla Lipana & Co./PwC Philippines and the Benita & Catalino Yap Foundation (BCY Foundation) recognize Filipino enterprises committed to social objectives through their enterprises through the awards.

Since then, PwC Philippines continues to serve the social enterprise ecosystem through its various related programs.
