EcoWorld conducts its business based on the principles of fairness, honesty, openness, decency, integrity and respect. It strives to foster and maintain an environment where whistleblowers (who may be EcoWorld employees or members of the public) can act appropriately, without fear of reprisal or retaliation. An avenue is provided for whistleblowers who have concerns about any suspected misconduct (including fraud, bribery or corrupt practice, theft, abuse of power, violation of laws and regulations and any intentional act deliberately designed to cause loss to the EcoWorld Group) to come forward and disclose these concerns in good faith without fear of punishment or unfair treatment.
EcoWorld also seeks to address any alleged or attempted acts of interference, reprisal, retaliation, threats, coercion or intimidation against the whistleblowers and to protect the whistleblowers; unless the disclosure is required by law pursuant to an investigation. The report of any misconduct must be made in writing using the Whistleblower Reporting Form as appended below. All written reports should be sent directly via email: email@example.com or by hand to EcoWorld’s registered office at Level 7, Menara Milenium, Jalan Damanlela, Pusat Bandar Damansara, Damansara Heights, 50490 Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan.
All reports will be channelled to the Whistleblowing Committee (WBC) comprising:
- Datuk Heah Kok Boon (Chairman)
- Dato’ Idrose Bin Mohamed
- Madam Low Mei Ling
EcoWorld recognises that anonymity to whistleblowers who willingly come forward to report a suspicion of misconduct is key to encouraging such reporting. However, to prevent false and malicious reporting, poison letters and abuse of the reporting channel, all whistleblowers must provide sufficient evidence (such as documents, images, footages, audio, email, text message etc.) in their report to facilitate further investigation, failing which credible reasoning/argument must be presented to show that misconduct has taken place.
