Globe releases a new mobile game to promote eco-friendly behavior one game at a time

In keeping with its pledges to take action on climate change, Globe today unveiled Climate Champions, a brand-new mobile game designed to motivate the company’s millions of customers to choose sustainable methods of consumption. Globe continues to promote climate education and action as a pioneer in sustainability and environmental, social, and governance (ESG) initiatives. The business uses gaming as a platform to encourage climate action through its smartphone game Globe Climate Champions.

Globe Climate Champions is a smartphone game that provides the Filipino population with helpful advice on how to lower their carbon emissions in daily activities. Players are challenged to reach the finish line as quickly as they can while having the opportunity to gain speed boosts by picking up rubbish along the way. I am so happy with this initiative of Globe because I acquired a lot of knowledge about what’s happening today. The discussion they did was such an engaging one and it is so informative, I am delighted with everything I learned. And I also enjoyed the mobile game, it is so fun to play and you can really learn from it.

Players can further shorten their run time if they select eco-friendly choices at the lifestyle quiz at the end of each round. They’ll also learn trivia on how to better care for the environment. More rounds played will unlock assorted prizes that encourage people to live a more eco-friendly lifestyle by shifting to digital transactions.

Climate Champion Game interface

The launch of Climate Champions is part of Globe’s commitment to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs), specifically SDG 13 on Climate Action, the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) Principles, the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi) Business Ambition for 1.5°C, and the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Race to Zero campaign. The Globe Group is also an early participant in the Race to Zero campaign, which drives its Net Zero ambitions.

“Responding to the risks and effects of climate change is a shared responsibility. This game aims to raise awareness on what actions contribute to caring for the environment,” said Yoly Crisanto, Globe Group Chief Sustainability and Corporate Communications Officer.

Meanwhile, as esports continues to grow in the Philippines, Globe ensures that gaming becomes purposeful by matching games and gamers with relevant causes to support.

“We have always believed that gaming in the Philippines goes beyond gameplay. Globe Climate Champions empowers Filipinos to live sustainably by breaking down the long-term aspiration into short-term actions, all through a gamified experience that encourages conscious daily life changes,” said Ralph Aligada, Head of Globe Gamers and Esports.

The new Globe Climate Champions mobile game can be accessed through the New GlobeOne, GCash, and the KonsultaMD apps. Team Globe of Good brand ambassadors June Mar Fajardo and Kuya Kim Atienza are some of the first advocates to invite the public to play the Globe Climate Champions mobile game.

Encouraging the community to commit to sustainability

Coinciding with the Globe Climate Champions’ launch is Globe’s launch of the nationwide search for Globe Kali ‘Kada, which aims to look for citizens championing sustainable practice

“As we launch our nationwide search for Kali ‘Kada, we are sending the message that anyone with a true heart for the environment can be a champion for change. We are excited to help uncover a new breed of changemakers who will inspire others to commit to a more sustainable lifestyle,” said RG Orense, Globe Digital and Social Channel Strategy Head.

To lower its operational emissions, Globe has installed more than 8,500 Green Network Solutions around the country. In addition, it has converted 14 important facilities to renewable energy through Retail Electricity Supply Agreements (RESA) with renewable energy producers. Additionally, it makes investments in climate technology to provide its customers and staff with advancements that will allow them to take climate action. .

“As we continue to operationalize our climate action strategies and aggressively move towards our goal of Net Zero by 2050, we encourage our customers to contribute to caring for the environment in their own way. As part of our commitment to uplift Filipino lives, the Globe Group has committed to operate responsibly and help make the Philippines a livable and sustainable nation for generations to come,” adds Crisanto.

How the HP EliteBook x360 1040 G8 keeps business information secure around the time

Be ready for the hybrid working setup this year by keeping important files safe from malware with the help of HP Sure Sense, HP Sure Click, and more.

For the past two years, working from home has been the most popular trend among professionals. Many businesses are considering a hybrid working environment this year. This allows employees to return to the office safely while also allowing them to work remotely.

Shifting to this system may necessitate upgrading one’s computers to meet their requirements. Apart from having the essential tools, such as MS Office, it’s also critical to invest in a device with reliable security measures to protect personal and business papers from viruses and hackers. This is especially important for people who frequently use public Wi-Fi.

A capable laptop that provides reliable protection is the HP EliteBook x360 1040 G8. This commercial-grade laptop is built with the latest security features that can neutralize even the most advanced malware. It’s a fitting device for the inevitable “hybrid lifestyle.”

The HP EliteBook x360 1040 G8 Notebook PC is protected on all fronts with its powerful, reliable security features.

All-around cyberattack protection

The HP EliteBook x360’s security features ensure that it’s protected on all fronts – from the BIOS down to the files. It’s built with the HP BIOSphere Gen6, which delivers enhanced firmware protection once the laptop is booted up and guards it from all cyberattacks that might compromise the BIOS.

If the EliteBook unexpectedly gets corrupted, HP Sure Start Gen6, the world’s first self-healing BIOS, will automatically restart the laptop with a safe copy of the BIOS. This is meant to help it recover from any type of cyberattack.

The main anti-virus software, HP Sure Sense, is a highly adept and intelligent defender that uses AI to search and neutralize malware and ransomware that may have infected the PC. It runs with HP Sure Run Gen4, which keeps security features functional, even if harmful malware tries to shut it down.

With business files often sent via online drives, it’s necessary for people to be careful of the links they click. Fortunately, HP Sure Click has made it safer as it opens files, applications, and web pages inside a micro VM container that isolates malicious viruses. This will make sure that people won’t accidentally download potentially dangerous software to their PCs.

Leveling up password protection

Keep unwanted eyes away from important files with HP DriveLock and HP Sure Admin. The former prevents unauthorized access to data and lets users set two passwords to lock certain hard drives.

Meanwhile, HP Sure Admin creates a digital key that people can use to access and manage their BIOS settings. They can do this from their PCs or through the HP Sure Admin app, available for free download on the Google Play Store.

With the HP EliteBook x360 1040 G8, unlock all “Hybrid Possibilities” this year. It’s not only a lightweight and dependable Notebook PC, but it also gives users the confidence to work safely. All HP devices have these sophisticated security measures, ensuring that every user is safe as they transition to the hybrid setup’s full implementation.

Cebuana Lhuillier gives clients the full online experience with the launch of Cebuana Xpress, the ultimate microfinance app

Cebuana Lhuillier, the Philippines’ top microfinance provider, has introduced Cebuana Xpress (CebX), a digital software that aims to modernize the country’s microfinance market. CebX aspires to provide its clients with the whole Cebuana Lhuillier experience on a single platform, making pawning and money transfer activities simpler and more convenient.

Clients can use the app to conduct pawning transactions from anywhere in the world. New Pawn, Pawn Renewal, and Pawn Redemption are some of the options available. For pawn redemption transactions, Ka-Cebuanas can verify real-time and accurate assessments and use the app’s nationwide delivery service.

The app’s full money transfer service capabilities allow clients to send and receive money, pay bills, load eWallets and Globe and Smart sim cards, as well as do cash-in and cash-out transactions.

“We continue to revolutionize the micro financial services industry with Cebuana Xpress, our ultimate micro financial app, offering our clients with the utmost and convenient pawning experience. This digital platform was especially developed to respond to the changing needs of our clients who call for a streamlined, more convenient, and more accessible way to access our pawning services,” Cebuana Lhuillier President & CEO Jean Henri Lhuillier said.

“CebX remains part of our financial inclusion mission. We do this by providing Ka-Cebuanas with digital channels and solutions that only responds to their changing needs and lifestyles, but also puts focus on the importance of accessibility and convenience as essential tools in empowering a nation of financially-included Filipinos,” Mr. Lhuillier added.

To get the most of the app’s features, CebX users may be verified using their existing pawn ticket number and 24k card number. First-time users can be verified by registering via eKYC (electronic Know Your Customer). Verified app users will be eligible to a free one-month insurance coverage and earn 24k loyalty points when pawning using the app.

To celebrate the launch of the app, Cebuana Lhuillier is waiving all service fees for pawn renewal and domestic money remittance transactions made via CebX app. Sending money from one CebX account to another will also be free of charge.

“Cebuana Xpress is part of Cebuana Lhuillier’s transition as a fintech power player. By making use of the technology available and by introducing apps like CebX, we ensure that we keep up with the times and provide innovative financial solutions to everyone, anytime and anywhere they need it,” Senior Vice President, Chief Information Officer, and Head of Product Management Group, Ergie Ong concluded.

CebX is Cebuana Lhuillier’s reaction to raising the bar in the microfinancial services business, as more Filipinos rely on digital platforms for their everyday requirements. Cebuana Lhuillier is truly present at all times and in all places. CebX can be downloaded through Google Play and the App Store. Visit for additional information.
