KUALA LUMPUR — March 1, 2019: Petronas today launched Yayasan Petronas, its corporate social responsibility (CSR) arm, to deliver a broader and deeper impact of CSR activities.
The launch by Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr. Wan Azizah Wan Ismail was witnessed by the foundation’s chairman Datuk Ahmad Nizam Salleh and Petronas president and group chief executive officer Tan Sri Wan Zulkiflee Wan Ariffin.
Nizam said the foundation is guided by the narrative of “Where Good Flourishes”, with a goal of creating spaces and pathways where it can nurture collaboration among corporations, institutions, organisations, communities and governments.
Yayasan Petronas aims to effectively extend what Petronas has done for communities and the environment for the last four decades into greater social value and sustainable impact.
Wan Zulkiflee said the incorporation of Yayasan Petronas coincides with Petronas’ 45th anniversary.
“It is with pride we witness the establishment of the philanthropic foundation that will, from today, carry out our CSR initiatives across the nation.
“We are confident the foundation will shape efforts to contribute to a sustainable ecosystem that meets the current and future needs of societies,” he said. — Bernama
