THE nation’s leading standalone convenience store chain, 7-Eleven Malaysia was awarded ‘Company of The Year’ in the Retail category for 2020, making this their fourth consecutive win in the prestigious Sustainability & CSR Malaysia Awards since its inception in 2017.
The annual CSR Malaysia Awards is a joint effort by the CSR Malaysia publication and Corporate Sustainability & Responsibility Malaysia Welfare Society, with support from The Ministry of Women, Family and Community Development where outstanding corporations in Malaysia that have excelled in the role of change agents in the socio-economic transformation of Malaysia and endeavour to promote sustainable economies and serve the needy are honoured.
The recipients have been selected by a panel of esteemed judges, encompassing both corporate and social bodies, and the judging criteria are based on a clear purpose and goals of the company in the corporate social responsibility initiative, together with the impact created and frequency of CSR events held.
On winning the award, Ronan Lee, 7-Eleven Malaysia’s General Manager of Marketing, said: “We are absolutely honoured and elated to be recognized for our corporate social responsibility initiatives four years running and this award signifies the efforts of the entire team here at 7-Eleven alongside our NGO partners such as SOLS 24/7 and NGOHub and we owe a huge appreciation to all of them for their dedication and passion for sustainable philanthropy. At 7-Eleven, we believe in always giving back to the community that we operate in as we’re Always There For You.”
7-Eleven Malaysia has since earlier this year, collectively contributed more than RM1 million worth of essentials, from test-kits, personal protective equipment and essential items to various government bodies and NGO’s nationwide to alleviate the burden brought upon by the Covid-19 pandemic and remains committed to doing its part in supporting the community during these trying times.
