07/07/2022Corporate Communications

IOI Corporation Berhad’s (IOI) digital transformation journey to drive social inclusion and operational efficiency of our operations has led us to be awarded the 2022 ASEAN Tech for Environmental, Social, Governance (ESG) Award by the ASEAN Innovative Business Platform (AIBP).

Since 2018, we have embarked on our digital transformation journey and implemented the SAP Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system across all our business operations. In the past 24 months, we have accelerated our digital transformation by implementing numerous initiatives to practice ethical recruitment and responsible employment, to eliminate forced labour elements, to enhance grievance mechanisms and to counter child labour through digitalisation, automation and child education initiatives.

We received the inaugural award at the 2022 AIBP ASEAN Innovation Retreat on 4 July 2022 in Singapore, and we are proud to be the sole Malaysian winner as we made the United Nation's Sustainability Development Goals a priority in our business, and integrated ESG principles into our business operations.

Our sustainability agenda is further strengthened and supported by connectivity, digital systems and mobile applications, which help us reach out to our workers better, empower women and allow children to have fair access to education.”

The ASEAN Tech for ESG Awards is held with the key objective of recognising organisations who have embarked on ESG projects, utilising digital tools and innovative technologies, with proven impact and results in their sustainability and ESG efforts.
