CMS Bags Gold At The 11th Global CSR Summit & Awards

Cahya Mata Bags Gold At The 11th Global CSR Summit & Awards

Kuching (Sarawak), Tuesday, 16 April 2019 – Cahya Mata Sarawak Berhad’s (CMS) reputational stock continues to fly high these days and is clearly winning the ‘hearts and minds’ of the Sarawakian people, through their increased efforts in setting the bar as a true citizen of the community.

Speaking about CMS’ accomplishments of late, Jason Lee, Head of Reputation & Corporate Communications, CMS said; “While we have been an active CSR force in the community for nearly two decades through our ‘Doing Good’ CSR volunteerism, we have kept pretty low-key about what we do. Now however, other people have started to talk about our work, our efforts and our successes. Third party endorsement is something you just can’t beat. In its truest form, third party testimony is an absolute barometer for the reputation of CMS and the trust people have in CMS.”

“This CSR Leadership Award has been earned by everyone at CMS who have contributed 363,926 man-hours across 393 different projects since we started the initiative 17 years ago. With these kinds of figures, it is no wonder that people are sitting up and taking notice of Cahya Mata Sarawak as the force for positive, lasting change that we are making in the community. We recently launched a CSR Facebook page which has also received incredible positive feedback, garnering over 500 followers and well-wishers in less than 30 days.”

“We invite readers to ‘like’ our Facebook page at and nominate a community where you think CMS ‘Doing Good’ team under the ‘Building Sustainable Communities’ initiative can make positive, long lasting changes to elevate the standard and quality of life of Sarawakians.”

“Reputation and trust are not something that can be bought. We have to work every single day on our ethics, integrity, compliance and corporate citizenship in order to reach our goal of being one of Sarawak’s most admired companies.”
