WCT gives back to community


PETALING JAYA: WCT Holdings Bhd has launched “WCTGives” as a pledge to commit to its corporate social responsibility (CSR) programmes and as an extension of its sustainability efforts to contribute to society and the environment.

In a statement yesterday, the group said WCTGives encompasses three pillars, namely #WeCareTogether, #EducationforAll, and #AGreenerTomorrow.

WCT said each of the pillars would focus on various programmes that aim to enrich the lives of the community, provide education support to the underprivileged, as well as to preserve the environment.

WCT deputy managing director Peter Chow said the group acknowledged the importance of striking a balance between profitability and doing good to bring equal values to its businesses and society.

“WCTGives is in line with the group’s purpose of ‘building sustainable and thriving communities’ and reflects our on-going commitment towards the UN sustainable development goals through our streamlined CSR programmes.”

Under the new proposition, WCT will continue to allocate 0.2% of its total annual revenue to fund its various CSR programmes across all business divisions.

According to Chow, the total contribution made in the financial year 2021 for charitable causes stood at RM2.8mil.

“We understand the plight of the underprivileged Bottom 40 community who are looking for support to alleviate their burden of putting food on the table,” he pointed out.
