The 9th Annual Global CSR Summit & Awards & The Global Good Governance Awards 2017 to be  held 29-30 March 2017 at The Westin Langkawi Resort & Spa, Malaysia

SINGAPORE, December 23, 2016 -The world’s most prestigious and longest reigning event for corporate social responsibility and corporate governance, The Global CSR Summit & Awards and the Global Good Governance  Awards 2017,  will reach  its ninth successive  year  and will be held for  first time in Malaysia.

The island of Langkawi, belonging to the state of Kedah, was unanimously selected by past attendees and the organizing committee for its beautiful natural endowments and eco-friendly practices. Since its inception, the event has been hosted in several countries including Singapore, Philippines and Indonesia and attended by attendees from all over the world.  The shift of the venue to  Malaysia  is an opportune  time due to the growing concern and the awareness of CSR and corporate governance issues  in  Malaysia. Despite recent challenges, we have also witness a growing trend  of  more  Malaysian  companies showing positive efforts  in the area of corporate  responsibility  and governance.

Since then, the event has grown from strength to strength and attracted a strong following of over 400 global and regional companies globally that participated or followed the event. The Global CSR Summit & Awards & The Global Good Governance Awards has become known as a global brand known for raising cutting edge ideas and topics in matters of societal transformation, product innovations that change the world and controversial topics that aim to inspire bold ideas to drive large scale changes and improvements to the environment, people and the planet.

Ms Audrey Van Houten, Global Events  Director  of  The  Global  CSR  Summit  &  Awards  commented:  ‘The  Global CSR Summit & Awards has withstood the test of time and has continuously been supported by respected  companies  from   around  the  world  including  some  of  the  Fortune   500 companies. The standards of this event have been raised higher since last year to lead the practice in not accepting sponsorships from companies that want to submit their nominations for the awards. This sets us apart from   all  the  other  competing  events  in this space. Despite  this, participation from  Companies and support from various stakeholders in the governmental and NGOs have in fact increased which  is a strong  endorsement to the high moral ethics that this event  holds.”

The organisers have chosen an exciting theme for the event, “Rebooting Capitalism -Exploring New Market Models”, where the conference will showcase world class presentations and discussions from leading practitioners from the world on workable economic, social and environmental models to meet the demands of today’s and tomorrow’s societies. The event will also host the two prestigious awards show concurrently with a workshop and a breathtaking eco-tour around the beautiful Langkawi Island on the second day of the event.
