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.

Upholding the highest standards of corporate governance throughout our business is the cornerstone of our corporate strategy. We are committed to gaining business on merit, capability and fairness. We also uphold the UN Global Compact (UNGC) Ten Principles which focus on Human Rights, Labour, Environment & Anti corruption.

Initiated by our founder, Tan Sri Dr Lim Wee Chai, Top Glove participated in the ISO 37001:2016 Anti Bribery Management System (ABMS) pilot programme in 2017, hosted by SIRIM QAS International. Top Glove Group’s practice covers anti bribery & anti corruption control, awareness & training, ethics & conduct as well as corruption risk management.

We strive to be the driver of positive change. Our Factory 9 in Meru, Klang was the first manufacturing facility in Malaysia to be certified the ISO 37001: 2016 Anti Bribery Management System (ABMS).

In FY2020, we embarked on new journey where the extension and expansion of harmonised MACC Adequate Procedures & ISO 37001:2016 Anti Bribery Management System (ABMS) project was initiated which covers Top Glove Corporation Bhd in which we oblige to comply with Corporate Liability Provision Section 17A that was enforced in 1st June 2020.

With endorsement from Board of Directors and Top Management, Anti Bribery & Anti Corruption Management System is implemented to corporate and operational groups in Top Glove Corporation Bhd.

Top Glove employees are required to sign Corruption Free Pledge every year to vouch that they will not condone or be involved in any corrupt practices, including facilitation payment. New staff of all levels are required to attend compulsory training specifically focused on combating corruption. Refresher courses on this subject are also conducted to long serving staff. 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 organised its own Top Glove Anti Corruption Day during which all senior management signed Corporate Integrity Pledge.

Top Glove does not make any monetary contributions and expenditure for political campaigns, political organizations, lobbyists or lobbying organisations. We do not create or influence public policy or support specific political parties.

Top Glove formed the Corporate Integrity to manage ABMS and initiate anti corruption efforts such as Whistleblowing Policy & Procedures, corruption free pledges, integrity roadshows and many more, as we consider anti corruption and prevention as our ongoing journey.

Our governance practices underpin the way we manage our business and support the successful delivery of our strategy. It guides our ability to operate in a way that is both legally compliant and responsible and is embedded in our day-to-day business operations. We take our governance role seriously and recognise that, as guardian of our culture, the Board plays a vital role in defining the way in which we do business and leading by example. We pride ourselves on operating in an open, honest, transparent and responsible way that welcomes constructive challenge and debate.
