Community

To create a positive difference to the lives of communities

Overview

In support of our mission ‘to create a positive difference to the lives of communities’, our primary focus on value creation for the wider community is through education, with an emphasis on maritime education.

Through investment in our maritime training and education facility, the Malaysian Maritime Academy, known as  ALAM (also referred to as ‘the Academy’) and our Cadet Sponsorship Programme, we fulfil our responsibilities and contribute towards the growth of the local and regional maritime industry by providing opportunities to deserving students in the field of maritime education as well as develop a sustainable pipeline of qualified seafaring professionals for the industry.

Apart from that, MISC has established a flagship Community Investment programme that aims to facilitate the development of leadership and social entrepreneurial aptitude within the younger generation. The programme supports the enhancement of their skills and mindset in four key areas to facilitate them in realising their full potential which comprises of:

  • Communication
  • Creative Thinking & Problem Solving
  • Collaboration & Teamwork
  • Global Citizenship

Strategy

Our primary focus of value creation for the wider community is through education, with an emphasis on maritime education. Our strategic objectives are aligned to our mission where we will focus our investment on the next generation through education. The initiatives include the promotion of upskilling and expansion of career opportunities for the youth, and raising knowledge and awareness of our industry.

Investing in the next generation via education:

Approach

Apart from our investment in maritime education with ALAM as well as our Community Investment Programme and other initiatives, we also extend our support to various other causes through our subsidiaries, where their own Community Investment programmes are championed independently with guidance from the Group.

Wherever possible, the Group also collaborates with its subsidiaries on projects to maximise their benefit and impact to the local community. All of our Community Investment programmes are focused in regions within Malaysia, Singapore, United Kingdom and United States due to the locality of our offices and employees.

We also support the global maritime community through the collaborations and sharing of resources with regulatory authorities and strategic partners. These efforts underpin our commitment to investing in the wider community, be it with local or industry stakeholders.
