BEKO Remains Committed to Protect the Earth Through Sustainability

Beko, Europe’s no. 1 home appliances brand, remains committed to sustainability and saving the planet as part of its mission to empower next generations to live healthier lives.

Beko continues to do its part in protecting planet earth by designing and manufacturing innovative sustainable appliances and will soon launch eco-friendly appliances supported by three key pillars, including use of recycled materials, use of bio-composites and products that use fewer chemicals.

The big picture is that Beko’s corporate culture goes beyond just making and selling appliances. “We are passionate about making sustainability affordable and accessible. This way the environmental benefits of our products are spread across the globe and are not just merely a luxury. With this in mind, developing new technologies enabling lower cost of sustainability is our number one priority,” said Gürhan Günal, Country Manager of Beko Pilipinas Corporation.

Arçelik, Beko’s parent company, has robust systems in place for increasing the reparability and recyclability of its products, and for sustainable productivity practices such as energy efficiency and reducing supply chain environmental impact.

Arçelik has accomplished important milestones around its sustainability efforts.

It has been ranked 34 on Corporate Knights' 2021 Global 100 Index, the annual ranking of the world's 100 most sustainable corporations which looks at the performance of companies with more than $1 billion in revenues. This ranking makes Arçelik the most sustainable home appliance and houseware company in the world.

In 2019 and 2020, Arçelik became a carbon-neutral company across its global production operations via carbon credits earned through the Carbon Financing Project. Last year, it was named industry leader in the Household Durables category in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index. Arçelik has been included in the category for the fourth year in a row.

Arçelik is recognized as a "Top Impact Company” by Real Leaders for efficient use of resources and circular economy solutions to develop smart technologies, promote healthier lifestyles and empower local communities.

This year, Arçelik has been awarded as Gold Class and Industry Mover by S&P Global. Furthermore, Arcelik’s 2030 greenhouse gas emissions reduction targets are approved by the Science Based Targets Initiative in line with the Paris Agreement’s goal of limiting temperature increase to well below 2°C. By 2030, 100% of the electricity used in production plants around the world will come from renewable sources, waste recycling will have increased to 99% in global operations, recycled plastic content will have increased to 40% and energy and water consumption per product will have decreased by 45%.

With this in mind, developing new technologies enabling lower cost of sustainability is our number one priority. Beko’s goal is to eventually incorporate these sustainability measures into all our products. Beko’s brand purpose is empowering future generations to live healthier lives – which is only possible by living more sustainably and working towards a healthier planet. All of our actions and every product we use has an impact on nature. So beyond this seven-product portfolio, we are eager to adapt our existing technologies to make all our appliances more environmentally friendly, too,” said Gürhan Günal, Country Manager of Beko Philippines Corp. With its parent company Arçelik, Beko will continue to increase investment in energy efficiency and renewable energy systems and be consistent in minimizing operational and supply chain environmental impact.

Beko is committed to protecting our Mother Earth by designing and manufacturing energy- efficient products and investing in resource efficiency in production. Beko encourages its competitors to follow suit,” said Günal.

Cong TV Shares How PayMaya Helps Elevate His Gaming Skills

Mobile gaming has already seeped into the modern Filipino culture as one of the favorite pastimes of Pinoys of different ages, even before the COVID-19 pandemic. According to a 2021 report from We Are Social, a global company providing social insights, 72.1% of Filipino internet users spend their time playing mobile games. Quite a number of players have also built careers around it, like content creator and game streamer Cong TV.

Cong, aka Lincoln Velasquez, started as a vlogger on YouTube doing parodies and comedy skits and got into gaming during the height of the popularity of the online multiplayer battle royale game Player Unknown: Battleground (PUBG) in 2018. Since then, Cong has transitioned into becoming a gaming content creator, streaming his live gameplays of PUBG Mobile, Call of Duty Mobile (CODM), Mobile Legends: Bang Bang (MLBB), and most recently, Valorant, on his social media channels. Now, Cong TV is hailed as one of the top content creators on Youtube, with over 8M subscribers.

Hindi naman talaga ako hardcore gamer. ‘Pag may sobrang time lang sa buong maghapon, sumisingit-singit lang ng laro, pero imposibleng dumaan ang isang araw na hindi ako naglalaro,” says Cong, who thinks gaming is part of his daily self-care routine as a stress-reliever.

(I’m not a hardcore gamer. I make it a point to play (mobile games) whenever I have time, but it’s impossible that a day goes by without me playing.)

But even though he doesn’t consider himself a pro, he makes sure to elevate his gaming with skins, and other character and weapon upgrades. “Ako kasi importante sa ’kin na meron akong magagandang skins kasi feeling ko mas lumalakas ako, mas gumaganda yung tutok ko kaysa dun sa default skin lang. Saka mas okay siya, mas masarap maglaro, nakaka-enjoy. Kahit na talo ako sa laro, ‘pag bago o maganda yung skins ko, parang panalo pa rin ako.”

(For me, upgrading my character’s skin is very important because it makes me feel stronger and more focused when playing than just having the default skin. It also makes me enjoy playing more. So even if I sometimes lose, my cool new skin still makes me feel like a winner.)

Upgrading his character’s skins is easy and hassle-free because Cong utilizes contactless payments like PayMaya to pay for his gaming purchases. In fact, more gamers like Cong are now able to enjoy a better gaming experience with the e-wallet's newest in-app offering – PlayMaya.

Cong has recently been introduced as the ambassador for PlayMaya, PayMaya’s in-app gaming offering that provides Filipinos exclusive rewards to gaming-related purchases, access to over 290 gaming products, engaging mini-games, and curated gaming content. PayMaya is the first and only e-Wallet in the Philippines with this game-changing feature. It is part of PayMaya's thrust to unlock and enrich the digital life of Filipino consumers with digital payment technology.

For Cong, PlayMaya is all about the convenience and rewards of gaming as it offers a wide range of products and features that every mobile gamer needs. “Beneficial talaga para sa gamers ang PlayMaya kasi maraming iba-ibang gaming pins na makikita dun para sa PUBG Mobile, CODM, MLBB, Valorant, at marami pang iba. Ang maganda sa PlayMaya ay bukod sa mas convenient bumili ng pins, marami rin silang cashback promos kaya alam mong mas sulit ang binibili mo.”

(Having a PlayMaya account is really beneficial for gamers because they offer a wide range of gaming products for mobile games like PUBG Mobile, CODM, MLBB, Valorant, and many others. What’s great about PlayMaya is apart from being a convenient way to purchase pins, they also have a number of cashback promos so you know you’re getting the best value for your money.)

Whether you’re a hardcore or a casual gamer, you can definitely enjoy a better gaming experience with PlayMaya, just like Cong. All you have to do is go to the PayMaya app, press the Play button, and enjoy PlayMaya’s exclusive gaming offers.

Before becoming a brand ambassador for PlayMaya, Cong has already been an avid PayMaya user. Aside from using the e-wallet for his gaming purchases, Cong also utilizes his PayMaya account for paying utility bills and shopping for everyday essentials.

Dati kasi pumipila pa ako sa payment centers sa pagbayad ng bills and nakita ko kung gaano kahirap yung pagpila lalo na ngayong nagso-social distancing tayo. So, yun yung unang reason bakit ako nag-download ng PayMaya noon, para mabawasan ng 1000% yung hassle na nararanasan ko. Nagsa-shopping din ako using PayMaya Mall, yun yung ginagamit ko kapag bumibili ng mga kailangan ko online,” he added.

(I used to line up at payment centers to pay for my bills, and I saw how difficult that would be especially these days when we’re required to practice social distancing. That’s the main reason I downloaded PayMaya – so I can lessen the hassle by 1000%. I also shop at the PayMaya Mall, where I can purchase our everyday needs online.)

For Cong, playing games and completing errands is now more convenient and rewarding, thanks to PayMaya. You too can enjoy a leveled-up cashless lifestyle when you download the PayMaya app for free on Google Playstore and Apple App Store.

PayMaya is the only end-to-end digital payments ecosystem enabler in the Philippines, with platforms and services that cut across consumers, merchants, communities, and government. Through its enterprise business, it is the largest digital payments processor for key industries in the country, including "everyday" merchants such as the largest retail, food, gas, and eCommerce merchants, as well as government agencies and units.

PayMaya provides more than 35 million Filipinos with access to financial services through its consumer platforms. Customers can conveniently pay, add money, cash out or remit through its over 250,000 digital touchpoints nationwide. Its Smart Padala by PayMaya network of 39,000 partner agent touchpoints nationwide serves as last-mile digital financial hubs in communities, providing the unbanked and underserved access to digital services.

Inigo Pascual 1st International Album Called "Options" Out Worldwide on June 25

Filipino pop artist Inigo Pascual is dropping his biggest music offering to date, the much-awaited “Options” album, for listeners worldwide on June 25 (Friday) — boasting of 12 original tracks that go beyond the confines of pop albums.

Through his second full-length and first internationally promoted album, Inigo attempts to bring Original Pilipino Music (OPM) to the global stage with a refined collection of songs that he recorded with multiple producers and songwriters from Manila to California in a span of two years.

“Options” primarily revolves around the concept of self-discovery and navigating a young man’s world of infinite options, which is fully exhibited in Inigo’s exploration of his best possible sound through the album’s dance pop, island pop, dancehall, R&B, reggae, and acoustic tracks produced by ABS-CBN Music’s Tarsier Records.

Its carrier single “Neverland” was produced by global hit producer Bernard “HARV” Harvey. The pensive pop-R&B track delves deep into the allure of staying in the unknown rather than making a firm action to traverse an unconventional relationship.

Inigo’s previously released singles included in the “Options” album are title track “Options,” “Danger” with Common Kings and DJ Flict, “Should Be Me,” and his collaborations with Tarsier Records’ label head Moophs, “Lost,” “Catching Feelings,” “Always,” and the stripped version of “OMW.”

Pre-save Inigo’s highly anticipated album “Options,” dropping on Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer, and other digital music apps on June 25 (Friday), and watch out for the premiere of “Neverland’s” music video on June 28 (Monday) on Tarsier Records’ YouTube channel.

“The Suicide Squad” Official “Rain” feat. Margot Robbie, Idris Elba, John Cena, Sylvester Stallone, and Viola Davis

Our only hope to save the world is a bunch of supervillains -- what could go wrong? 

Check out “The Suicide Squad” - Official “Rain” Trailer which has just been released by Warner Bros. Pictures. Watch the film in Philippine cinemas this 2021.

From writer/director James Gunn comes Warner Bros. Pictures’ superhero action adventure “The Suicide Squad,” featuring a collection of the most degenerate delinquents in the DC lineup.

Welcome to hell - a.k.a. Belle Reve, the prison with the highest mortality rate in the US of A. Where the worst Super-Villains are kept and where they will do anything to get out—even join the super-secret, super-shady Task Force X. Today’s do-or-die assignment? 

Assemble a collection of cons, including Bloodsport, Peacemaker, Captain Boomerang, Ratcatcher 2, Savant, King Shark, Blackguard, Javelin and everyone’s favorite psycho, Harley Quinn. Then arm them heavily and drop them (literally) on the remote, enemy-infused island of Corto Maltese. Trekking through a jungle teeming with militant adversaries and guerrilla forces at every turn, the Squad is on a search-and-destroy mission with only Colonel Rick Flag on the ground to make them behave…and Amanda Waller’s government techies in their ears, tracking their every movement. And as always, one wrong move and they’re dead (whether at the hands of their opponents, a teammate, or Waller herself). 

If anyone’s laying down bets, the smart money is against them—all of them.

The film stars Margot Robbie (“Birds of Prey”), Idris Elba (“Avengers: Infinity War”), John Cena (“Bumblebee”), Joel Kinnaman (“Suicide Squad”), Jai Courtney (the “Divergent” franchise), Peter Capaldi (“World War Z”), David Dastmalchian (“Ant-Man and the Wasp”), Daniela Melchior (“Parque Mayer”), Michael Rooker (the “Guardians of the Galaxy” films), Alice Braga (“Elysium”), Pete Davidson (TV’s “Saturday Night Live”), Joaquín Cosio (“Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse”), Juan Diego Botto (“The Europeans”), Storm Reid (“The Invisible Man”), Nathan Fillion (“Guardians of the Galaxy”), Steve Agee (“Brightburn”), Sean Gunn (the “Guardians of the Galaxy” films,), Mayling Ng (“Wonder Woman”), Flula Borg (“Ralph Breaks the Internet”), Jennifer Holland (“Brightburn”) and Tinashe Kajese (TV’s “Valor”), with Sylvester Stallone (the “Rocky,” “Rambo” franchises), and Viola Davis (“Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom,” “Suicide Squad”).

Gunn (the “Guardian of the Galaxy” films) directs from his own screenplay, based on characters from DC. The film is produced by Charles Roven and Peter Safran, with Zack Snyder, Deborah Snyder, Walter Hamada, Chantal Nong Vo, Nikolas Korda and Richard Suckle executive producing.

Warner Bros. Pictures Presents An Atlas Entertainment/Peter Safran Production, A James Gunn Film, “The Suicide Squad.” 

The film will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures.

Gaming Royalty Alodia Gosiengfiao Opens Up About the Importance of realme and 5G Connectivity in Mobile Gaming

As mobile gaming and esports continue to gain massive ground in the country, realme Philippines aims to strengthen its position in the industry by catering to the diverse needs of mobile gamers and streamers. With this goal in mind, the country’s no. 1 smartphone brand for Q1 2021 teamed up with cosplay icon, entrepreneur and gaming royalty Alodia Gosiengfiao to further empower the local gaming community to capture infinite possibilities.

Having been in the gaming and cosplay industry since her teenage years, Alodia has managed to break through barriers and cement her place in this fast-growing scene. “I’ve always had the mindset that gaming is and should be for everyone,” shares Alodia. “When I started out, there were people who would tend to ‘gatekeep’ the industry based on what or who they think gamers should be. But despite that, I stayed true to my core and focused on my craft because this is something I’m truly passionate about,” she adds.

Since being part of the realme Squad in 2020, Alodia shares how realme’s wide range of quality tech products perfectly complement her day-to-day life. The flagship realme X50 Pro launched in December of last year has become a staple for her streams and gaming needs with its exceptional speed and 5G connectivity. In addition, Alodia shares how she appreciates that realme provides a full-circle digital experience with its growing range of AIoT products including audio products and wearables.

Capturing infinite gaming possibilities with 5G

The rise of 5G infrastructure and its increasing access in the country ultimately set the stage for an enhanced experience for mobile gamers and esports enthusiasts. For Alodia, the 5G revolution opens up a plethora of possibilities in the industry. “I’ve always believed in the power of 5G. Not only does it allow for smoother gameplay and performance, but it also ensures reliable communication among players which is key to winning team games”, shares the realme ambassador.

As the leading smartphone brand in the country, realme is ready to lead the 5G race with its latest 5G game-changer, the realme 8 5G, which Alodia teased ahead of its official launch in her livestream last June 16.

Philippine gaming royalty Alodia Gosiengfiao gives a first look of the

In addition, realme’s latest 5G innovation also comes with a 5000mAh massive battery with 18W Type-C Quick Charge, guaranteeing longer battery life with rapid charging technology for extended periods of gaming.

I’m really looking forward to the response of the gaming community with the launch of the realme 8 5G. I’m sure they will love it as much as I do,” shares Alodia.
