This is a list of large employers in Malaysia who have demonstrated ethically questionable behaviour. We assessed these organisations based on publicly available data regarding legal suits, allegations and settlements. We also relied on investigative journalism that found evidence of:
Monopolistic, intimidatory and illegal business practices
Manipulative and misleading marketing
Negligence that led to pollution and environmental degradation
We recognise that many of these corporations have generous CSR initiatives and sustainability programs. Many have also made public commitments to do business more sustainably. While these programs and commitments are welcomed, it does little to justify the larger scale negative impact caused by the way these corporations choose to do business.
