KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA - 6 NOVEMBER 2023 - ViTrox received Gold for the “Most Improved Performance Over 3 Years” award. Up from Silver last year, this is the second consecutive year the Company has received recognition from The Edge ESG Award for its ongoing effort to practise and promote Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) initiatives.
President and Group CEO Mr Chu Jenn Weng stated that ESG at ViTrox is not just a box to check off but a reflection of ViTrox’s internal values. “What sets ViTrox apart in our industry is our unwavering commitment to our core values: I.A.C.T.G. (Integrity, Accountability, Courage, Trust & Respect, Gratitude & Care). The core values are our guiding principles to do the right things in our day-to-day dealings with all our stakeholders. We also seek guidance from experts and role models and then do what we genuinely believe is the right thing.”
In 2021, ViTrox embarked on its ESG journey with the establishment of the ESG Steering Committee and ESG Working Group. In 2022, the Company set an ambitious target to achieve net-zero (0) carbon emissions under Scope 2 by the end of 2030 and took a significant step forward by setting 30 ambitious goals to be achieved by 2030.
