We Help Make Things Better
Through the provision of world class products and services, DRB-HICOM is not only one of the leading business entities in Malaysia, but
also one that has become synonymous with quality. This success however comes hand-in-hand with a corporate social responsibility,
something that DRB-HICOM attests to fully, and strives to uphold, in every aspect of its business and work culture. At DRB-HICOM, social
responsibility is part and culture of the business ethics and the Company consistently supports the social activities in which the society it
operates within.
Through a dedicated pool of resources and funds set aside annually, DRB-HICOM is actively involved in various social activities that
encompass various levels of society, they are mainly for the benefit of the less fortunate, the needy one and for the improvement or
development of a targeted community such as women, children and young society. This includes providing assistance in various forms to
orphans and underprivileged children, the disabled, senior citizens and the needy families. The Company also supports social and welfare
activities, volunteer organisations, women associations, welfare associations and foundations in Malaysia in its effort to reach out to as
many needy Malaysians as possible.
In addition to these groups, DRB-HICOM also provides assistance to non-government organisations (NGOs) such as the Malay Chamber of
Commerce and Industry Malaysia, which strives to develop and assist local entrepreneurs. Support is also given to the joint project with
Ministry of Entrepreneurial and Cooperative Development to aid its efforts in helping nurture young Bumiputera entrepreneurs through the
Young Entrepreneurs Project.

DRB-HICOM is also actively involved in the Malay Ping-Pong Championship of Malaysia - DRB-HICOM Chairman’s Trophy, which is in its
third year.
The championship which is organised by the Malay Ping-Pong Association of Kelantan is aimed at seeking and grooming young talent to
excel in the game, with the hope that they will then qualify to be part of the national squad and compete in national and international
Another aspect of DRB-HICOM’s corporate social responsibility involves the collaboration in establishing the temporary National Automotive
Museum at the Sepang International Circuit (SIC) under the auspices of the department of Museum and Antiquities. The objective is to
educate the Malaysian public and create greater awareness on Malaysia’s industrialisation drive which has since propelled the country to
greater heights. DRB-HICOM together with other leading corporate companies in Malaysia participate to showcase the automotive
components and parts produced by the respective company.
Apart from showcasing three units of Modenas motorcycles and a HICOM Perkasa truck, DRB-HICOM also displays automotive components
that are produced by companies under DRB-HICOM. This includes Malaysian Truck & Bus Sdn. Bhd., Oriental Summit Industries Sdn. Bhd.,

Flora Sdn. Bhd. (a member of DRB-HICOM) embarked on a unique
project targeted at Malaysian students, who would serve as
“environment ambassadors” and write about their observations and
experiences. The “Waste Not, Want Not” project, which was jointly
carried out with the Newspaper in Education (NIE) unit of the New
Straits Times (NST), was highly successful as the “environment
ambassadors” took turns to interview the personnel involved and
write in-depth articles on the importance of waste management,
seven of which were published in the NST.
The students were also taken to the Kuala Lumpur Transfer Station
(KLTS) plant where they learnt how waste was transferred to the
landfill in Puchong. In addition to this, they were also given a briefing
on Alam Flora’s various environment conservation efforts, including
its recycling buy-back centre at the KLTS compound which is
open to the public. As part of their education process, a workshop
was held at the NST’s premises, whereby several Alam Flora
representatives spent time reiterating the importance of recycling
and waste management. The entire process culminated in the seven
articles which were then published in the NST, aimed at a wider
The initiative involved a field trip for the 37 students aged between
11-14 years to visit a solid waste management plant and understand
the processes involved. This also included an overview of the waste
management industry in Malaysia, along with general tips and
education on how to embark on environmentally-friendly practices
such as recycling, source separation, scavenging at landfill sites
and composting. In addition to being given insights into waste
The “Waste Not, Want Not” project with the NST is among the

instill greater awareness on the importance of effective waste
management practices and recycling, particularly amongst the
younger generation.
