Corruption is the single greatest obstacle to economic and social development around the world. Top Glove strongly believes that companies which live by a set of good values are more likely to thrive, as they attract and retain highly ethical employees and at the same time, gain public trust.

In early 2009, the Top Glove Prevention and Anti-Corruption Committee (TGPAC) was set up to uphold anti-corruption principles in the conduct of business and interactions with business partners and the Government. The Committee also aims to promote an anti-corruption mindset and instill honest and transparent practices amongst all its employees, as well as to provide an avenue for Top Glove’s employees and the public to lodge complaints of any corrupt practices in the company.

TGPAC is bestowed by the Group to conduct investigation and inquiries based its detailed procedure in place, called the "TGPAC Investigation Workflow” in the event of any corruption acts or bribery cases reported to them. Specific actions to be taken for the corruption conduct are also highlighted in the comprehensive workflow.

Top Glove employees are required to sign a pledge every year to vouch that they will not condone or be involved in any corrupt practices. Top Glove is an advocate on anti-corruption practices which is upheld by the Group’s training made compulsory to all new staff specifically focused on combating corruption; from the individual level up to every level of the organisation. Refresher courses on this subject are also conducted to long-serving staff.

Top Glove ensures that a CTOS check is conducted on all business associates to be certain that they have good credit standing and at the same time, safeguard Top Glove from potential financial risks. Additionally, employees are required to conduct SSM search to gather more information on corporate or financial information of business associates. All suppliers and other business associates who have financial dealings with Top Glove are also required to sign a letter on enforcement of no corruption policy every six months to affirm their adherence to our policy and practice of non-corruption.

Top Glove was also among the first to sign the Corporate Integrity Pledge and Anti-Corruption Principles for Corporations by the Malaysian government in March 2011. Besides having hosted talks and participated in events with some of the notable drivers of business integrity in the country such as Transparency International and Trident Integrity, it has also organised its own Top Glove Anti- Corruption Day during which all senior management signed the Top Glove Corporate Integrity Pledge.
