Langkawi,  March 31, 2017

YTL Group was honoured at the Global CSR Awards 2017 with three awards recognising FrogAsia, YTL Hotels and PT Jawa Power's educational and environmental work. Senior industry executives, environmentalists, social activists and NGOs from Asia and the rest of the world attended the region’s most prestigious and longest reigning event for corporate social responsibility and corporate governance, The Global CSR Summit & Awards and the Global Good Governance Awards 2017, now at its ninth successive year.

The event is recognized as the most prestigious and respected platform for recognizing excellent CSR and governance practices from companies and leading brands from the region and the rest of the world. The event also showcased presentations from over 20 influential speakers including award winning visionary thought leader Professor Martin Blake, Mr Ali Jaleel (CEO, Philips Malaysia) and Mr Chandran Nair, Founder of Global Institute for Tomorrow and author of “Consumptionomics: Asia’s Role in Reshaping Capitalism and Saving the Planet,” and Professor Ray Wills, Managing Director, Future Smart.

YTL won three awards, two platinum and one gold, for their CSR efforts. YTL's FrogAsia was awarded the Platinum Award in Excellent in the Provision of Literacy and Education Category for their Hubs by FrogAsia initatives, which provides quality training sessions on the Frog VLE and support to teachers across Malaysia. The programmes hosted at Hubs are completely free-of-charge for interested teachers. YTL Hotels was awarded the Platinum Award in the Best Environmental Excellence Category for their collective biodiversity conservation initiatives and programmes. And YTL's PT Jawa Power was awarded the Gold Award in the Best Environmental Excellence Category for their water conservation programme.

Against the backdrop of the theme, “Rebooting Capitalism –Exploring New Market Models”, the speakers presented many perspectives and case studies on Asian, Western and hybrid developmental models that sparked much debate and enthusiasm amongst delegates. Keynote speaker Chandran Nair also commented during his speech that Western models of development have not always been successful and Asian countries should not blindly follow their path. Many Western models of development have not internalized the true cost of consumption, resulting in many environmental and social problems today.

Mr Melvin Chan, Co-Global Events Director of The Global CSR Summit & Awards commented: “The Global CSR Summit & Awards has withstood the test of time and has continuously been supported by respected companies from around the world including some of the Fortune 500 companies. The event holds the highest standards by being the few awards programme around the world that do not accept sponsorships from companies that want to submit their nominations for the awards. This sets us apart from all the other competing events in this space.”
