As Malaysia’s largest Independent Power Producer, Malakoff is committed to ensuring that our long-term growth and profitability are founded upon responsible and sustainable corporate practices. As such, we continue to embed good Corporate Responsibility (“CR”) practices into our operations in the areas of the Marketplace, Community, Workplace and Environment. These are helping ensure that our economic ambitions are balanced out with good societal and environmental performance.
Today, the Malakoff Community Partnerships initiative (introduced in 2009) serves as the Group's flagship CR initiative and continues to make a positive impact on stakeholders. We also continue to strengthen our CSR Framework that underscores our mission to be an active and responsible participant in the communities in which we operate. From the Board level, to the teams on the ground who are going about their daily tasks, CR is embedded deeply within all levels of our organisation. Our commitment to good CR practices is reflected in the significant amount of resources that we have invested to improve our CR programmes and ensure their relevance to our many stakeholders. Going forward, the integration of good, CR practices will remain an integral component of Malakoff’s business strategy to ensure our sustainable growth.
