The award was presented to BKP’s Group Managing Director, NK Tong by YB Dato’ Sri Ismail Sabri bin Yaakob, Minister for Domestic Trade, Co-operatives and Consumerism at an award presentation ceremony held at the Berjaya Times Square Hotel.

BKP first won the inauguration Award in 2006 and subsequently in 2008. Held once every two years, the Business Ethics Excellence Award recognizes companies practising exemplary business ethics guided by their respective Code of Ethics.

NK expressed his gratitude to the Ministry of Domestic Trade, Co-operatives and Consumerism for their continuous effort in pushing the frontiers for the practice of business ethics in the private and public sectors. “It was an honour to be judged as one of the country’s best companies to embody and practise exemplary business ethics. This award will inspire us to continue subscribing to these ethical standards.

It is our belief that through Integrity, we can consistently offer our homeowners with innovative, quality and value-for-money lifestyle homes. That is why Integrity is the bedrock of the company’s core values, the others being Quality, Innovation and Caring,” he said.

“We stress the importance of conducting ourselves and doing business with integrity as the most important to embrace and we strive on to always ‘Do the right thing even when no one is watching’,” said Tong who was also invited as one of the panelists in a dialogue session during the award presentation.

BKP submitted a 309-page document detailing its best business practices, and won the highest recognition award in the Large Companies Category, which is defined as having annual sales turnover of more than RM 25 million.

There were a total of 55 submissions this year. Thirty two companies comprising large local and multinational companies such as Maxis, Digi, Astro, AEON (Jusco), Shell, Intel, Tenaga Nasional and Syabas participated in this awards event under the Large Companies Category, submitting details of their best business ethics practices. Twenty-two other companies also participated in the Micro, Small and Medium Companies Categories.

The Business Ethics Awards competition was first conceptualized and promoted by the Business Ethics Institute of Malaysia (BEIM) in 2005. It was open to all Malaysian and international companies operating in Malaysia. The winners were selected by a panel of experts in business ethics from MARA University of Technology (UiTM), led by Dr Chris Saville from the UK based on 32 principles/criteria of assessment.
