Building community trust by integrating corporate responsibility and sustainability in all our business process and contributing to the well-being of the communities in which we operate.

Kulim places great emphasis on the building of peaceful relations with our employees as well as external stakeholders. In order to build resilience amongst vulnerable communities as well as provide support where necessary, we actively contribute towards social causes and encourage our employees to participate in community engagement activities.


Taking a proactive approach to our core value of putting people first, Kulim has always endeavoured to contribute to the well-being of the communities in which we operate. By now it is ingrained not only in our identity but in our business strategy to listen to the needs of the people we come in contact with. Closest to home, Kulim’s As- Sajadah Fund provides assistance to our staff, where possible, improve their quality of life.

Our staff including management is also encouraged to take part in our welfare and charitable projects. Their response has made us proud which we frequently see staff of all levels stepping up to volunteer their time and effort, and even making personal donations to support good causes. 

This includes the community development programmes and activities that rest on five (5) main pillars: community, sports, welfare, education and infrastructure development.

Among last year’s initiatives were our SQD’s hosted the Summer Camp KMB 2019 for students preparing their UPSRs, PT3s and SPMs. The camp took place from 13 to 14 August at Savanna Hill Resort, Ulu Tiram, Johor.

The total of 97 students from each operating unit and headquarters participated in the activities. The camp kicked off with the motivational activity Jom Jadi Hebat conducted by Akademi Ikon Muda Malaysia (“AIKOM”), followed by KWD awareness,
as well as aerobic and recreational activities. 

The highlight activity of the event was Bicara Tokoh-Potensi Diri dan Kecemerlangan Pelajar with Dato’ Ustaz Badli Shah Bin Haji Alauddin and presentation of mock-cheque by Yayasan JCorp to schools within our operating units. 

The closing ceremony was attended by Encik Noor Effendy Mohd Ali, Head of Business Development and Marketing Division.


In December 2019, SQD hosted its fifth KMB Sport Tournament for employees children under seventeen years old. The netball and football tournament was held at Padang Dataran Majlis Perbandaran Pasir Gudang and Stadium Bolasepak Pasir Gudang.

A Klinik Bolasepak and Klinik Bolajaring were also organised for teams that were not successful in moving on to the semi-finals. These clinics were aimed at improving the skills and general understanding of the game to the players or participants. The prize giving ceremony was officiated by Cik Zainuriah Abdullah, the Head of Plantation Advisory and Services Division. A friendly football tournament were also organised
between Legend Johor and Kulim XI.

All these initiatives provided opportunities for our children to participate in health-promoting activities. Through sport, we also facilitated the building of relationships among Kulim’s citizens, which fits in with our CR efforts.
