Handwear manufacturer Top Glove has won a prestigious award at the Sustainability & CSR Malaysia Awards 2022, held at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, Kuala Lumpur.
Top Glove is among five companies that received the Overall Excellence Award at the event. The Sustainability & CSR Malaysia Awards is a joint effort of the CSR Malaysia publication and the Malaysian Welfare Society for Corporate Sustainability and Responsibility.
The award was given to the company in recognition of its corporate social responsibility activities throughout 2021, including financial contributions, donations of personal protective equipment, and philanthropic activities totalling approximately RM190 million.
Ng Mei Fong, Senior Manager, Top Glove Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Top Glove, received the award on behalf of the company, at the ceremony which was officiated by Dato' Ramlan Bin Harun, Secretary General of the Ministry of Rural Development.
As a homegrown organisation with a global footprint, we are responsible for giving back to the community
Top Glove Foundation was established in June 2009 with the aim of raising funds for the purpose of charity, education, and activities related to the environment and community. The glove manufacturer promotes sustainability and corporate social responsibility projects under three key philanthropic pillars: Community, Education, and the Environment.
The Foundation had initiated several programmes under these pillars to support individuals and communities during the different iterations of Movement Control Order (MCO), which were in place for extended periods throughout the pandemic.
Several factors contribute to the selection of the winners of the Awards, including whether the company's practices align with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Top Glove's MD, Lim Cheong Guan, said: "As a homegrown organisation with a global footprint, we are responsible for giving back to the community and society. We are honoured to be recognised for our community outreach efforts and impact, which shows our commitment to building a better world for all, today and tomorrow."
