Full Release: Kuala Lumpur, 21 September – UEM Edgenta Berhad (“UEM Edgenta” or the “Company”), the leading Asset Management and Infrastructure Solutions company in the region reaffirms its commitment against corruption and towards good governance as it signs the Corruption-Free Pledge with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (“MACC”).

Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of UEM Edgenta, Syahrunizam Samsudin, led the pledge declaration in the presence of officials from the MACC, the Company’s Board of Directors and close to 250 employees locally and overseas as the Company celebrates its Integrity Day 2021 virtually earlier today.

The ceremony was also witnessed by Deputy Chief Commissioner of the MACC, Datuk Seri Norazlan Mohd Razali, who was delivering the opening speech on behalf of Chief Commissioner of the MACC, Datuk Seri Azam Baki said, “The new normal has brought in new challenges, but it has only renewed our spirit and we are even more determined to fight against corruption. We applaud UEM Edgenta for continuing to take this stand, and we hope more companies and communities will join us in this fight so that we can all together send a clear and strong message that we will never compromise on corruption, and we will uphold our values with the highest integrity.”

“The pledge reinforces the will and corruption-free stand of the Board and management of UEM Edgenta and sets a clear leadership tone in developing a culture built upon ethics, accountability and trust, so that we can deliver quality and sustainable work of global standards. It also demonstrates our long-standing commitment to promote integrity and good governance amongst our personnel as we value transparency and ethical corporate governance in all our businesses and procedures,” said Syahrunizam during the ceremony, which also discussed a range of topics related to compliance, anti-bribery and integrity.

He also emphasised that the Company does not tolerate any abuse of power or corruption, and that it is serious in ensuring that there are no elements of corruption throughout the organisation. This is further exemplified through various Anti-Bribery & Anti-Corruption (“ABAC”) initiatives such as ABAC Policy & Guide, Code of Conduct for Board Members, Employees and Business Partners, Corruption Risk Assessment, Conflict of Interest, Whistleblowing Policy & Platform as well as continuous communications using dedicated channels, which include online learning on integrity, risk and compliance via its own learning platform, ‘LEARN’.

Additionally, to ensure a structured and efficient risk management system, the Company also embarked on operational excellence through proper certification and accreditation as well as occasional ‘Brown Bag’ sessions, for improved information and communication transparency whilst instiling a sense of responsibility and integrity in the workforce.

The Corruption-Free Pledge, an initiative first introduced by the MACC, emphasises on the oath and pledge taken by an organisation's leadership and employees, to be accountable and responsible in performing their duties without any corruption misconduct during their holding of office. It showcases the Company's commitment and serves as an assurance that necessary steps have been taken to fight against corruption.
