Unitrade always targets to uphold a zero-corruption policy when it comes to eliminating all types of bribery and corruption within the Group and across its value chain. The Group has established Anti-Bribery and Anti-Corruption (“ABC”) Policy pursuant to Section 17A of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission Act 2009 (“MACCA”) which came into force on 1 June 2020. The Board has oversight on anti-bribery and anti-corruption matters within the Group and is in charge of leading the development and application of Unitrade’s ABC Policy to reinforce our anti-corruption and anti-bribery position.
The Board is also tasked to ensure that a sustainable anti-corruption and anti-bribery programme is implemented in the Group, which includes reinforcing compliance with the ABC Policy and the assigning of adequate resources to implement the aforementioned programme.
While remuneration of Board members is not currently linked to ESG performance, the Group and the Board are looking into implementing this feature in the future. Unitrade remains as an apolitical organisation.
All of our employees are required to sign and confirm their adherence to the ABC policy.
