At IOI Corporation Berhad (IOI), we believe in meeting the needs of the present without compromising that of the future generations by:
Committing to protect, rehabilitate and preserve the environment where we live in
Ensuring that the economic, social wellbeing and health of our employees and their families as well as the wider communities are safeguarded
Leading and innovating as well as embedding sustainability practices into our businesses
IOI has developed and will continuously improve upon a systematic approach to sustainability by ensuring sustainability sits at the top agenda of IOI’s management. Additionally, to ensure transparency IOI established a Sustainability Governance structure. This Sustainability Governance structure comprises Board of Directors, Group Sustainability Steering Committee, Sustainability Team, and an external Sustainability Advisory Panel.
Group Sustainability Steering Committee
On the Governance aspect, to ensure that we keep our sustainability strategy and performance on track and support the Board in setting high level direction and focus, IOI set up a Sustainability Steering Committee that reports to the IOI Board of Directors. This committee comprises the Group CEO, Heads of the Operating Divisions, Group Head of Sustainability, and Senior Management from Group Support Functions.
In line with IOI’s greater commitment towards a more transparent and effective execution of policy, we have recently put in place a new Sustainability Team structure where the Sustainability Heads at all operating divisions have a reporting line to the Group Head of Sustainability who reports directly to the Group CEO. This will ensure that the operations personnel strictly adhere to all sustainability policies, practices and commitments of the Group.
Sustainability Advisory Panel (SAP)
The Sustainability Advisory Panel (SAP) supports the roll-out of the Group’s SIP, and advises on specific issues raised by multi-stakeholders such as NGOs and RSPO.
The SAP is composed of NGOs, customers and subject-matter experts and experienced professionals from various countries and sectors, including Oxfam, WWF and Mondelez, etc., as well as representatives from IOI Group senior management.
Going forward, the Panel will advise and challenge the Group on delivering its sustainability commitments and ambition. It will provide a critical review and advisory function to the Group’s sustainability activities and help to review its progress in delivering its sustainability commitments as set out in the SPOP and SIP.
