The forum, themed “Climate change vs. profits: Striking a balance” was moderated by Dato’ Johan Raslan, Chairman of ICR Malaysia and featured a distinguished line-up of panellists, comprising:
The CEO Forum is also a platform for Malaysia’s corporate leaders to share their views on a topic relevant to the times. This year’s theme was selected in recognition of our country’s aspirations to transform into a high-income nation and taking into consideration recent developments on environmental concerns, both in the country and globally.
The StarBiz-ICR Malaysia Corporate Responsibility Awards were introduced in 2007 to recognise and honour companies which demonstrate outstanding and leading CR practices that go beyond community and philanthropic activities. With these Awards, the organisers hope that Malaysian companies will assimilate CR values and sustainable thinking in their business strategies and goals, so as to raise the business standards of companies to the benefit of all stakeholders.
As in previous years, Awards will be given out in four categories, namely Marketplace, Workplace, Environment and Community, and for two market capitalisation segments (RM1 billion and above, and below RM1 billion).
Assessed by an independent third-party organisation, CSR Asia, the final selection of winners is decided by a distinguished panel of judges, comprising:
The Awards are supported by the SC and Bursa Malaysia, and sponsored by Canon Marketing (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd, and the working partners are PricewaterhouseCoopers and Securities Industry Development Corporation (SIDC).
The winners are expected to be announced early 2011. For more information about the Awards, log on to www.thestar.com.my/starbizicrm/.
