Sarawak Energy: Integrity Key to Ethical Business Decision Making
3 MARCH 2020
Sarawak Energy reaffirmed its commitment to achieve zero-corruption by continuing to embed integrity into the organisational culture through events and initiatives to drive ethical behaviour.
The Corporation held their inaugural Legal and Enterprise Risk Day themed “Be Brave, Do Good, Stay You” recently, building on a group-wide campaign for all-staff to sign an integrity pledge to ensure awareness on the importance of integrity as a core value.
At the event, Group Chief Executive Officer Datu Haji Sharbini Suhaili emphasised the importance of integrity as a foundation for ethical decision-making in the way their business is conducted and governed.
“Integrity may mean many things to different people but in essence, it is about always doing the right thing – whether or not you are being watched. We expect each of our 5,200 employees to act with integrity in addition to our other core values of courage, unity, respect and accountability,” he said.
Sharbini was joined by Sarawak Energy’s Senior Vice President for Legal and Enterprise Risk, Haji Nooruddin Abdullah and members of the senior management in officiating the event.
Also present at the event was Katherine Nais, Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission's (MACC) Chief Assistant Director of Community Education, who shared with the audience on Integrity and Common Offences under the MACC Act 2009.
Sarawak Energy Company Secretary, Lim Li Na also shared the importance of strong corporate governance in response to the demand for greater transparency and higher standards of behaviour from stakeholders and the law.
The energy developer and power utility launched Sarawak Energy’s Zero Tolerance to Fraud Campaign in 2017 during which the Fraud Risk Management Framework and Fraud Control Policy was rolled out.
The Corporation has also put in place a Whistleblower Policy to further strengthen its corporate governance towards a zero-corruption at workplace.
