SilTerra Enhances Commitment to Uphold Integrity and Governance through Integrity and Governance Awareness Campaign (IGAC) Launch

SilTerra launched its Integrity and Governance Awareness Campaign (IGAC) on the 10th December 2020. Jointly hosted by Khazanah Nasional Berhad’s Integrity Unit (KIU), this event was aimed at upholding SilTerra’s commitment towards integrity and governance to create an environment of trust, transparency and accountability within all aspects of SilTerra’s business.

In his opening speech, Chief Executive Officer of SilTerra, Mr. Firdaus Abdullah, highlighted that SilTerra’s pledge on zero-tolerance towards bribery and corruption is crucial to ensure that the company continues to deliver outstanding technologies and services to customers within a corrupt-free business environment.

Streamed live from SilTerra’s corporate office in Petaling Jaya while being witnessed by over 800 employees based in the Kulim, Taiwan and the US sites, the IGAC event was officiated by the Chairman of the Board of SilTerra, Mr. Jalaluddin Jarjis. In his speech, he reminded all employees to apply the highest standards of ethical conduct and accountability in SilTerra’s business activities and operations. He added that the company has established adequate and secure whistleblowing channels for all employees to make reports on any misconduct. He assured the employees that they will be protected under the whistleblower protection for all reports made to the Integrity and Governance Unit (IGU).

The IGAC launch also featured speeches by Mr. Kader Ibrahim, Chief Operating Officer of SilTerra and Ms. Suhana Dewi Selamat, Head of Governance, Risk and Compliance of Khazanah Nasional Berhad. This event included a special sharing session by guest speaker and former magistrate, Mr. Firdaus Ramlan, who gave a heartfelt personal account of the torturous consequences of bribery and its effects on an individual and those close to them.

As part of SilTerra’s integrity and governance campaign, there is a strong line-up of activities that has been planned for 2021 to promote awareness on ethics and integrity and to establish greater resilience towards bribery and corruption in the workplace. The IGAC is a testament of SilTerra’s strong commitment in supporting the National Anti-Corruption Plan (NACP) 2019-2023, developed by Malaysia’s Governance, Integrity and Anti-Corruption Centre (GIACC) which carries the hope and voice of the people for a clean and accountable nation.
