The Winners

 

The winners of the Building Trust Awards (BTA) 2017 are showcased below. The BTA employs a distinctive way of measuring trust, beyond the financials of the companies assessed. It assesses how companies perform in their corporate reporting as well as how they are perceived in the eyes of their stakeholders (for instance, their customers and investors).  

 

WINNER - Sime Darby Berhad

"Sime Darby is a large organisation - we have more than 120,000 employees throughout the world, several businesses in different geographies, and are also the largest producer of certified sustainable palm oil. We can do this because the market believes in us. Sime Darby is where it is today because of the trust we have developed in all our relationships and build upon over the years."

Tan Sri Dato' Seri Mohd Bakke Salleh, President & Group Chief Executive, Sime Darby Berhad

RUNNER-UP - Axiata Group Berhad

"Axiata places strong emphasis in delivering on customer's expectations and we intend to inspire digital trust through robust data privacy and security policies, frameworks and management, as well as continuously innovating our products and services to proactively meet changing customer demands."

SPECIAL MENTION

SPECIAL MENTION
