As part of the Company’s Corporate Commitment, Kelington supports local community growth and serve the needs of the community through various corporate social responsibility (“CSR”) initiatives. We are committed to working with NGOs and the local communities in devising programmes that contribute both directly and indirectly to create a positive business environment whilst improving the quality of life among local communities.
On top of supporting local suppliers and hiring of local employees, Kelington also allocates corporate contributions for local communities, focusing on the underprivileged, education and environment. We continued to perform several core programmes involving education and providing financial assistance to underprivileged children.
In FY2022, the total spending on community program and environmental conservation are recorded at RM44,000. After regular scanning on Kelington’s operating environment, the Sustainability Working Group would identify the social and environmental challenges and arrange meaningful CSR program that aligns with our community investment policy and priorities, addressing pressing social or environmental issues and create positive impact on our stakeholders and the communities where we operate. There were six local community programs conducted in FY2022.
