YTL prioritises culture and heritage, and it has been one of the key factors of success that brought YTL to where it is today. The diverse nature of YTL's businesses in many parts of the world has given the opportunity for YTL to learn, embrace and touch the lives of millions of people across the globe. Corporate social responsibility is one of our key values and something we take very seriously. We believe that empowering communities means helping them develop in ways that are not merely enriching but also sustainable.
In the current era, we understand that today's increasingly competitive and challenging business environment means that we will need to work harder to ensure our people and stakeholders are not only rewarded but protected from the risks these challenges may bring about. This shared vision fuels our commitment to operating in a responsible and sustainable manner, and to give back to the societies and people who form an integral part of the environment in which we operate.
At YTL, we strive to positively impact and enrich the lives of people where we operate by;
- promoting arts and culture showcasing unique heritage assets and providing alternative media and venues for artistic expression and communication.
- developing future generations of leaders by supporting educational initiatives.
- engaging and supporting local community groups, social institutions, NGOs, social enterprises and non-profit organisations.

Promotion of Arts & Culture
YTL is passionate supporter of the arts and is dedicated to encouraging the development of our own arts and cultural scene, particularly in Malaysia. This is mainly to showcase the uniqueness of our heritage and to provide an alternative medium for artistic expression and communication. In doing so, we support a variety of artistic talent and bodies, cultural heritage and educational programmes in our communities.
Supporting Educational Initiatives
YTL has long been committed to growing and nurturing the potential of Malaysia's future generations as reflected in various educational programmes and initiatives including scholarships to deserving individuals carried out via the YTL Foundation and other affiliates. YTL also aims to empower the next generation by providing world-class internet-based education solutions as it believes that education can be transformed through the use of technology. The Group is dedicated to improving the quality of life through education and technology.

Supporting Community Initiatives
Fostering strong relationships with the community is of vital importance to YTL. We recognise our duty to be a good neighbour and thus are an active partner of cities and communities, working closely with schools and charitable organisations to educate, support and engage the communities in close proximity to the areas in which we have operations. YTL aims to support the communities through initiatives that have widespread benefit and contribute to improvements in community life and environmental sustainability.
