"As such, it is also an honour for SCG to be recognised as a “Pioneer in ESG practices”. ESG strategy is our core direction amid global disruption, to remain sustainable and resilient to create shared values for all stakeholders. We believe this strategy will continue to be the compass for SCG and the business community to navigate through challenges, into a prosperous future for all," he said.
