Awantec Champion Malaysia Small Medium Enterprises with Digital Offerings for Sustainable Business

CYBERJAYA, 14 DECEMBER 2023: AwanBiru Technology Berhad (Awantec) won the SME100 Awards 2023 in the “Sustainable Brands Awards” category for the second time since 2021.

Awantec chief executive officer, En. Azlan Zainal Abidin said the recognition reinforced Awantec’s position as Malaysia’s trusted partner in Technology and Talent solutions. 

It was a significant testament to its ability to effectively manage customers’ needs and requirements for trusted and reliable products and services in this fast-evolving industry.

“We have begun to establish a robust and sustainable supply chain, formed through strategic partnerships with distinguished industry leaders such as Google, HRD Corp., and Skillsoft, just to name a few, to collectively reduce environmental and social impact." 

“The award recognises the strength of Awantec who have infused sustainability practises into every aspect of our business,” he said in a statement.

The winning of this award came as a strong testament to Awantec in line with its improving performance where Awantec recently recorded its second consecutive quarterly profit in Q1 Financial Year 2024. The positive financial outcome was driven by the growth in both the Technology and Talent segments powered by strong partnerships with various industry leaders such as the Human Resource Department Corporation (HRDC), Skillsoft and Google. These strong alliances were forged by Awantec as part of its pivot to the Cloud transformation plan established in 2021. 

The SME100 Award ceremony is held annually, and winners are selected entirely by the SME100 Committee through a physical audit and interview based on programmes and business plans from an ESG angle.
