Aboitiz InfraCapital - Quick Guide

What is Aboitiz InfraCapital?

Aboitiz InfraCapital (AIC) is a part of Aboitiz Equity Ventures Inc. (AEV), one of the most trusted business conglomerates in the Philippines. AIC was established in 2017 to handle all of AEV’s infrastructure-related businesses.

As a core part of AEV, AIC can leverage the expertise and resources of the conglomerate to meet the complex needs of locators at its economic estates and deliver efficient solutions for water security and broadband internet connectivity for the Philippines’ developmental goals.

AIC maintains a presence all over the country, with projects and investments such as Apo Agua Infrastructura, Inc. in Davao City, common towers and small cell sites throughout the Philippines, economic estates in Cebu and Batangas, as well as the Mactan-Cebu International Airport, just to name a few. Aboitiz InfraCapital also holds stakes in various joint ventures involved in infrastructure development projects all over the Philippines.

What are Aboitiz InfraCapital’s core businesses?

At present, AIC is focused on developing economic estates, transport and mobility, water infrastructure, and digital infrastructure throughout the Philippines. It is also a participant in a variety of development projects in partnership with various private and public organizations.

How does Aboitiz InfraCapital innovate water infrastructure?

AIC is currently positioning itself to be a trusted provider of water security solutions throughout the Philippines. At present, it fully owns Lima Water Corporation (LWC) in Malvar, Batangas, is a majority shareholder in the Apo Agua Infrastructura, Inc. project in Davao City, and a minority shareholder in Balibago Waterworks System, Inc. (BWSI), a water service provider with a nationwide presence.

Aboitiz InfraCapital has a track record of introducing several water infrastructure innovations through all its investments and projects. Apo Agua, for example, uses hydroelectric power to supply green energy to a water treatment plant on the Tamugan River, which, in turn, feeds into the Davao City Water District’s reservoirs. This will afford Davaoeños a sustainable source of clean water for decades with almost zero carbon emissions generated for the water treatment process.

In Malvar, Batangas, AIC-owned LWC has the distinction of being one of the very few end-to-end water service providers in the Philippines, producing, distributing, and treating water for LIMA Estate, the largest privately held PEZA zone in the country. With 150 locators, over 4,000 households, and 65,000 employees, LIMA Estate has the population and size of a large municipality, giving Aboitiz InfraCapital a way to effectively validate various water security innovations.

AIC is also currently validating cutting-edge water monitoring and automation systems at LIMA Estate. These high-tech solutions have enabled AIC to dramatically reduce waste and improve system efficiency compared to other water infrastructure systems in similar-sized water districts.

Lastly, this know-how is also already being used to improve service at BWSI’s various water utility systems in 20 provinces. Today, BWSI is widely considered to be the most efficient water service provider in the Philippines.

What sets Aboitiz InfraCapital economic estates apart from other economic and industrial zones?

These days, international investors are looking for more than just low-cost labor and tax breaks. They expect a full range of reliable utilities and services to support their operations.

AIC and other components of AEV can deliver these and more. Sustainable electric power, full-service construction capabilities, reliable water delivery, high-speed broadband connectivity, and top-of-the-line logistics infrastructure are all available at Aboitiz InfraCapital economic estates. All estates also feature well-trained emergency response teams to respond to any untoward event.

All Aboitiz InfraCapital economic estates also have world-class living and entertainment accommodations for residents and visitors alike. These estates feature retail establishments, hospitals, schools, and even churches, making them valuable additions to neighboring communities.

Lastly, all AIC economic estates are strategically located within a short distance of the country’s major urban centers and logistics links while still being in areas with reasonable living costs. This gives locators maximum convenience and allows them to easily attract and retain top talents.

What are Aboitiz InfraCapital’s digital infrastructure projects and investments?

Presently, the company is engaged in the deployment of small cell sites and has a stake in Unity Digital Infrastructure, a common tower developer.

Small cell sites are an emerging low-cost technology that can quickly plug coverage gaps in 5G networks, particularly in densely-populated areas with line-of-sight obstructions and high data demand. These compact, low-power radio access points are ideal for providing key areas with additional broadband capacity while also reducing full-size cell site redundancy. Presently, there are a growing number of small cell sites at Lipa-Malvar, Subic, Cebu, Cotabato, and Davao, with more slated to be set up in other high-demand areas.

Unity Digital Infrastructure, on the other hand, facilitates AIC’s foray into the common tower business. Common towers are communications towers that can serve multiple telcos. This business model was made possible by the rollout of the common tower policy, which allows independent providers like Unity Digital Infrastructure to develop and maintain towers for the country’s various telecommunications providers.

How does Aboitiz InfraCapital plan to contribute to the country’s transport and mobility sector?

In addition to its water infrastructure investments, economic estates, and digital infrastructure projects, Aboitiz InfraCapital (AIC) is also investing heavily in the transport and mobility sector, with serious ambitions to further expand its footprint in this area. Notably, AIC has recently formed a consortium with GMR Group and Megawide Construction Corporation to manage the operation and further development of the Mactan-Cebu International Airport (MCIA), the second busiest airport in the Philippines and a key gateway to the Visayas island group.

AIC has plans to further expand and upgrade the airport to not only increase capacity but also make the MCIA even more attractive to international passengers, thus benefiting local economies throughout the Central Visayas. In addition, AIC is exploring opportunities to invest in other key transport infrastructure projects, particularly those in emerging and fast-growing Philippine regions.

What is Aboitiz InfraCapital’s “triple bottom line” approach to CSR?

All of AIC’s decisions are guided by a unique CSR and sustainability framework that equally emphasizes People, Planet, and Profit. This “Three Ps” approach helps ensure that all of AIC’s projects are developed and maintained in a way that benefits all stakeholders, including employees, surrounding communities, customers, investors, and the environment.

This approach helps Aboitiz InfraCapital maintain consistency in its efforts to be a sustainable and socially conscious organization. This, in turn, allows the company to continuously generate value, not just for shareholders, but for all Filipinos as well.
