The program is for citizens and for corporations to witness solutions that address societal issues relevant to the nation, especially now that giving back is the new norm.

“The playing field has changed. Consumers are likely to put their money where their heart is, and would much rather prefer investing in goods and services from companies that are genuinely committed to social responsibility,” shared Robert Carizo, Executive Producer of Sweet Potato Productions, the independent television production company behind Business Matters, and the health and lifestyle program Health Matters.

“Business Matters offers corporate storytelling centered on initiatives that helped build thriving inclusive business models in the local setting,” Carizo added.

The show is for people who are wondering just how instrumental the private sector is in making Filipino lives easier through sustainable programs. It is for business entities wondering how to do CSR right, now that we exist in an age where CSR is no longer a buzz word but an instrument for change.

Essentially, Business Matters highlights stories about the synergies made by key players looking to impart shared value principles in creating a positive difference in society today.
