Her company was adjudged best company for its initiatives in Promoting Road Safety and Practice, and Sustainability and Social Investment in Road Safety.

About the sustainability and investment awards

The purpose is to create awareness, encourage companies, CSI/CAR foundations, Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) and other implementation agencies in delivering high impact CSI/CSR projects which align with government’s focus on Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), and to also adopt a multi-stakeholder approach leading to excellent outcomes.

The SSI awards are also conceptualised to publicly recognise the impacts made by companies, enterprises, institutions and individuals through exemplary success in voluntarily improving the quality of life for people and communities. They are also to recognise businesses which creatively approach corporate social responsibility and reward those who are creating new standards, committing their organisation to make social responsibility an integral part of their business.

Organisers of the programme described Ms. Yang Yang as outstanding CEO whose conduct, capacity, performance and accomplishments are exemplary and fully deserving of public recognition.
