NLEX Corporation’s CSR strategy is to adopt a key element in the corporation’s core business (“doing well” dimension) as its CSR program (“doing good” dimension). NLEX Corporation considers its stakeholders–motorists, government partners, host communities, media, and general public– as having “equity” in the present and future viability of the organization and of maintaining roadway quality to assure road safety.
