Petronas joins the 1,802 other companies that have signed the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission's Declaration of Corruption Free Pledge (MACC).
The pledge, led by its CEO Datuk Tengku Muhammad Taufik Tengku Aziz and witnessed by chairman Tan Sri Bakke Salleh and MACC chief Tan Sri Azam Baki, was made with the senior management at its headquarters at the Petronas Twin Towers here yesterday.
"I believe the corruption-free pledge does not end here," Azam says.
"I see that Petronas has realised its anti-corruption initiatives in total compliance with the government's directions, as evidenced by the establishment of the Integrity and Governance Unit (IGU) and the Organizational Anti Corruption Plan."
He also says that these initiatives are critical in ensuring that an organisation has implemented adequate measures in accordance with the legal requirements of corporate liability.
The pledge was launched in 2018 and focuses on the oath voluntarily taken by an organization's leadership and members to hold each of them accountable for carrying out their duties with integrity and preventing them from engaging in any corrupt misconduct during their tenure.
So far, 1,802 entities, including corporations, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), government agencies, government-linked businesses, and ministries, have signed the pledge, emphasising their commitment to working toward a progressive, corruption-free nation.
