Amidst challenging environment, the Company remained resilient and paved its way forward with ‘New TM’ transformation to set the Company on a sustainable growth trajectory

Telekom Malaysia Berhad Group of Companies (TM Group) today concluded its 36th Annual General Meeting (36th AGM) with all 12 Ordinary Resolutions tabled duly approved by its shareholders. The Meeting, conducted via online for the 2nd consecutive year in view of the Movement Control Order (MCO), saw virtual participation by more than 1,000 shareholders.

Commenting on the proceedings, Tan Sri Dato' Seri Mohd Bakke Salleh, Chairman of TM said: "We are very pleased that TM once again was able to conduct its AGM virtually and engage with our shareholders without being physically present at the meeting venue. This reflects our commitment towards ensuring the safety and health of our shareholders as well as stakeholders by complying with the guidelines set by the Securities Commission Malaysia (SC), National Security Council (NSC) and Ministry of Health (MoH)."

Also participating in the online AGM was Imri Mokhtar, Managing Director / Group Chief Executive Officer, TM as well as other members of the TM Board. Razidan Ghazalli, Group Chief Financial Officer, TM was also present.

"Amidst the market and pandemic challenges, we remained resilient and recorded an improvement in our 2020 performance, as our cost optimisation initiatives continue to drive profitability. Building on current momentum, we have embarked on the next phase of our exciting journey with the 'New TM' Transformation Programme. Guided by our compass of Purpose, Customers, Performance and People, we will focus on Connectivity Excellence, Solutions Excellence and Customer Experience Excellence to set us apart from the competition," added Tan Sri Dato' Seri Bakke.

The 'New TM' transformation is anchored on 40+ Value Programmes, driven by a dedicated Transformation Office; with a new cadence towards a higher execution tempo, which is already showing early traction. TM is also reshaping its workforce into a stronger execution engine, embracing a more agile work culture with future-ready skills.

This will set TM on a sustainable growth trajectory, to create shareholder value and continuously enable a more Digital Malaysia. TM, in its role of enabling Digital Malaysia, is ready to support the Government's digitalisation agenda, particularly the Jalinan Digital Negara (JENDELA) and the comprehensive Malaysia Digital Economy Blueprint – MyDIGITAL as well as other Government's digital and stimulus plans, towards accelerating the socio-economic recovery and fast-track the nation into a technologically-advanced economy by 2030.

TM is well positioned to play a significant role in MyDIGITAL – focusing on digital connectivity (fibre, 5G, international connectivity), digital infrastructure (Cloud, Data Centre and Cybersecurity) as well as digital skillsets and talents (via Multimedia University and TM Digital Academy). The Company was also appointed as the sole Malaysian Cloud Service Provider (CSP) under MyDIGITAL, at par with the other global players.

TM believes that such public and private collaboration will propel the country towards a full-fledged Digital Malaysia by 2030 – a more digital society, digital business, digital industry and digital Government.

Despite the MCO, TM was able to publish a fully Integrated Annual and Sustainability Report (IAR) for this year. The theme of this year's IAR is "Reach Further", a reflection of the ripple effect brought about by the report cover. The idea is to inspire Malaysians to go further in pursuing their dreams through Digital Malaysia, as reflected through the visuals in the separators of a Digital Society, Digital Businesses and Digital Government presented in the book. This theme and narrative are carried consistently from our report cover, separators and throughout the strategic narrative of the report.

In the affected regions, TM has restored a majority of its impacted primary network sites. The flood had impacted more than 15 network sites and hill stations across four (4) states, due to power outages and in some areas, high water levels and severe road conditions, preventing our network team from accessing these locations. As part of the pledges made by members of the GLC/GLIC Disaster Response Network (GDRN) currently at RM58.4 million, the TM Board has allocated RM2 million in aid of the recovery, rebuilding and flood relief efforts. TM, via Yayasan TM (YTM) is also joint chair and secretariat for GDRN. Together with YTM, partner NGOs and the Malaysian Armed and rescue Forces, we have also distributed over 3,500 care packs consisting of hot meals, dry rations and hygiene items, and COVID-19 self-test kits provided by Pharmaniaga to the flood-stricken areas in Klang Valley and Hulu Langat. Our committed team of over 260 staff volunteers (TM Reaching Out Volunteers – TM ROVers) are currently assisting communities with the daunting task of cleaning up their homes, including 830 of our own employees whose premises have been damaged. TM will also ensure compensation via financial aid to the affected staffs, and the provision of temporary shelter at the MMU campus. Imri Mokhtar, Group Chief Executive Officer of TM said, “The immense challenges faced by fellow Malaysians during this unfortunate situation calls for corporations and businesses to come together to respond swiftly to alleviate the struggles of many, leveraging on our resources and means where possible.” “As co-lead of the GDRN, TM is grateful to serve alongside its members in addressing the needs of those trying to rebuild their lives in the aftermath. The worse may not be over, and TM is mindful of our role to support our customers, communities and employees as we recover as a nation.” “We appreciate the patience shown by all as we work hard to get our networks back up and running and ensure uninterrupted services in face of power shutdown and damaged equipment in some of our locations,” he added.

TM receives national recognitions for its continous efforts in Energy Management

The Company walked away with four (4) recognitions at the recent National Energy Awards 2020, organised by the Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources (KeTSA). ​Telekom Malaysia Berhad (TM) was recently bestowed with multiple recognitions for its continuous commitment and best practices in energy management at the National Energy Awards 2020, organised by the Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources (KeTSA).​ The accolades received by TM were: Rank Category Sub-category Building Winner Category I: Energy Efficiency Energy Management (Small Building) TM Node, Skudai, Johor Bahru Runner-up Category I: Energy Efficiency Energy Management (Large Building) Menara TM, Kuala Lumpur   Special Awards Institute of Higher Education Multimedia University, Melaka   Special Awards Energy Performance Contracting (EPC) TM Node, Bandar Tun Razak Commenting on the achievements, Badrul Hisham Ahmad, Vice President, Support Business, TM said: "We are humbled and honoured to receive these awards and would like to thank KeTSA for recognising our continued commitment to Energy Efficiency (EE) initiatives, which is part of our overall sustainability agenda. Such initiatives not only provide cost optimisation and increased efficiency, but also contribute towards environment conservation. We understand that while we are advancing towards an increasingly digital economy and lifestyle, ensuring the sustainability of our environment is equally important for future generations. In addition to economic development, TM's role in empowering a Digital Malaysia is also driven by our potential to play our part to combat climate change. Although the ICT sector contributes 2% of global carbon emissions, increasing connectivity offsets the emissions. By providing digital solutions, we enable other sectors of the economy to grow while reducing energy use, travel and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Therefore, the transition towards a digital economy helps achieve global carbon-reduction targets." "As we work to increase connectivity and digital, the necessary network and infrastructure expansion brings upon risks of environmental harm. As a responsible business, TM is implementing strict policies and innovative solutions that reduce the carbon emissions resulting from its operations and infrastructure development. A key way to reducing TM's carbon emissions is by lowering our overall energy consumption. As such, our facilities are supported by Energy Saving Initiatives (ESI), which describes how we can improve energy-efficiency at network and non-network buildings. We also adopt sustainable practices for emissions management that adhere to regulatory standards. We conduct regular monitoring of the air, noise and water of areas surrounding our operations. We strive to consistently comply with the environmental monitoring limits stipulated by the Department of Environment (DoE) thus ensuring that our business does not harm nearby environment and communities. We have been continuously improving on our emissions and consumption policies, objectives, targets and strategies. Additionally, we monitor and measure activities that contribute to our carbon footprint, including energy use and waste production, resulting in a 7.5% reduction in overall GHG emissions for 2019. We also recorded a 7.4% reduction in energy consumption," Badrul elaborated. The annual National Energy Awards (NEA) highlights the development of ideas and best practices in driving the country's sustainable energy sector. The award recognises the efforts of the public and private sectors in energy innovation that manifests positive impact to the nation and all Malaysians. It acknowledges the adopters of energy efficiency technology and renewable energy in driving towards Malaysia's sustainable development aspirations. It is also the Government's strategic move to promote innovation in local technology, research and development (R&D) as well as to create awareness on a broad level across the different facets of society, in line with the country's aspiration to spur energy sector as the new area for economic growth.​​ Previously in 2019, the National Energy Awards also honoured TM for the first time as the winner for Category I: Energy Efficiency under sub-category of Energy Management (Small & Medium Building). The award recognised energy saving initiatives at Menara TM, Melaka which include upgrading of conventional lighting to LED, chillers optimisation, reuse of ablution water for watering plant and installation of motion sensor lighting, among others.
