Enhance social well being via Community Initiatives i.e. social responsibility commitments including community investments, community development programmes for positive long term impact to society and employee volunteerism activities.
Investing in Infrastructure
We are mindful of the need to apportion economic values generated by our business operations to the development and maintenance of community facilities and local landscapes of our surrounding developments as these serve to enhance social interaction and economic progress. Our infrastructure investments are made with sustainability, connectivity and inclusivity in mind, with commercial and retail areas thoughtfully planned with public infrastructures to derive socio-economic multiplier effect for the communities in the townships that we develop.
In FY2023, IOIPG has increased accessibility in Yongchun County by constructing a connecting road to the main road, maintained urban green spaces in our townships, contributed to the safe and conducive learning space in schools and constructed 432 affordable homes in Negeri Sembilan and Johor.

Advocating a Circular Economy
Bargain Basement, initiated by IOI Foundation, is a retail store based on the concept of circular economy that encourages the public to donate their pre-loved and unused items to the store. These items are sold at a minimal cost with net proceeds being channeled to charity organisations. In FY2023, Bargain Basement opened its 4th store in Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman (UTAR), Sg Long.
