3 DECEMBER, KUALA LUMPUR – Mah Sing Group Berhad (Mah Sing) has once again won the “Company of the Year Award for Leadership in Health and Community Development Programmes” under the property development category at the prestigious Sustainability and CSR Malaysia Awards 2021 held recently. Mah Sing was conferred as one of the recipients of the prestigious award by a panel of high-calibre judges representing corporate and social bodies, for its continuous implementation of meaningful corporate responsibility initiatives that have a tangible and sustainable impact on the lives of children and local communities, as well as engaging in sustainability efforts in the pursuit of a better Malaysia.

Mah Sing’s Group Chief Executive Officer, Datuk Ho Hon Sang said, “It is an honour to be recognised for our efforts in corporate social responsibility for the second consecutive year.  This recognition is a testimony to our work and commitment towards helping the underserved communities especially the children. Through Mah Sing Foundation, Mah Sing Group has impacted more than 160,000 individuals directly and indirectly in 2020 alone.  Amid the challenges throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, we manage to continue to create more long-term and sustainable initiatives and continue to reach out to more underserved communities, especially the B40 urban and rural communities.”

Also present at the event was, CSR Malaysia’s Patron, Tan Sri Lee Lam Thye, CSR Malaysia’s Chairman, Datuk R. Rajendran, and CSR Malaysia’s Managing Editor and Co-Chairman, Lee Seng Chee. Lee praised the winners for their continuous CSR efforts in assisting underprivileged communities, as well as those greatly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. He also urged more corporates to join the efforts of benefitting more lives.

This year, the awards recognised more than 50 Malaysian corporations that excelled in the areas of corporate sustainability and social responsibility, as well as contributing to the Malaysia’s socioeconomic transformation. The purpose and goals of the company for the CSR initiative, the impact created, and the frequency of CSR events held are among the judging criteria for the Sustainability and CSR Malaysia Awards, also to ensure the credibility of the efforts contributed.

Since 2005, Mah Sing has been a strong advocate for charitable causes involving local children and families through its strategic corporate responsibility partner, Mah Sing Foundation that oversees most of its community initiatives that are in line with the Group’s vision and mission. In 2020, Mah Sing and Mah Sing Foundation had contributed more than RM3.4million and assisted more than 35 schools and NGOs. The Group also donated 25 units of medical equipment to COVID-19 designated hospitals in Malaysia while the employees of Mah Sing Group raised RM54,000 worth of nitrile examination gloves and groceries for front liners from seven COVID-19 administering hospitals in Klang Valley.  Mah Sing has also run several programmes to uplift the lives of the B40 communities of the Program Perumahan Rakyat (PPR), in line with its three key pillars – education, health and wellbeing, and community development.

In terms of sustainability, Mah Sing’s efforts can be seen that environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors are prioritised by the company’s three divisions – property development, plastics and healthcare — in its decisions and actions. The company continues to increase the use of environmentally friendly materials and products in the property division, use 100% recyclable plastic raw materials in the plastics division and practice an internationally recognized good labour practice code known as the Ethical Trading Initiatives Base Code in the healthcare division.
