  • The Group’s firm belief in sustainability has helped Sunway cement its position as one of the top employers nationwide and amass eight recognitions at Talentbank’s Graduates’ Choice Award (GCA) 2021/2022.

Throughout the years, Sunway has worked towards prioritising the three Ps – People, Planet and Profit, and finding the balance between all three in our pursuit of doing well by doing good.

This is affirmed by Sunway’s recent recognition as one of the best employers in the country as well as being ranked second most sustainable employer by the Sustainable Employer Research Centre. Corporate boards of Malaysia’s largest public listed companies were assessed based on environmental, social, and governance (ESG) disclosures.
