Print30, October, 2011   -

The Malaysian Deputy Prime Minister presented United Plantations with the prize for best CSR practice in Malaysia.

Two years ago United Plantations was presented with the prize as the best operated plantation in
Malaysia. This year the Company was presented with the prize for the best CSR practice in the country. The prize is based on companies’ contribution to and positive impact on the employees, environment and local communities as a whole. The prize was presented on a premier event on Malaysian commodities the Malaysia International Commodity Conference & Showcase (MICCOS) held last weekend. The conference is held every second year and is the largest of its kind in the country.

Two years ago we were rewarded for running the most efficient plantation in Malaysia. Being awarded the CSR prize this year is, in my opinion, a clear evidence of our holistic approach to sustainability. Financial sustainability is, without a doubt, part and parcel of our impact on the employees, the environment and the surrounding communities. We build on a tradition that has been United Plantations’ cornerstone for generations“, says Executive Director of United Plantations Mr Carl Bek‐Nielsen.

The Prize was presented by Malaysian Deputy Prime Minister, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin and the Malaysian Minister of Plantation Industries and Commodities, Tan Sri Bernard Giluk Dompok.
