Scomi looks to extend CSR programme

Shah Hakim Zain

KUALA LUMPUR: Drilling fluid and waste management solutions provider Scomi Group Bhd is seriously looking to extend its commitment to corporate social responsibility (CSR). 

Chief executive officer Shah Hakim Zain said Scomi planned to extend its CSR programme to other sectors related to social work and environmental issues. 

“We are currently working towards those targets, but it is still too premature to go into details,” he told reporters after he presented certificates to the top nine participants of the Scomi-MyKids programme yesterday. 

The company launched the programme in July to provide a platform for young sporting talents to realise their potential in sports, and enhance the country's potential to excel in football. 

“Our objective is to provide the children with a platform to enable them to realise their full potential in sports.  

“This is in line with Scomi's philosophy, whether in business or when carrying out our corporate citizenship initiatives,” chairman Tan Sri Asmat Kamaludin said at the presentation ceremony. 

The programme, done in collaboration with MyTeam, ended yesterday. The top nine participants would be taken on a tour of Manchester United's Old Trafford stadium as well as watch one of the team's live matches.

Scomi's CSR is not just limited to football. The company is also sponsor to Women's World number one squash player Nicol David and 14-year-old motorsports prodigy Jazeman Jaafar.
