ABOUT US

OUR GOALS

Our goals are to embrace accountability for all our actions and impress a positive impact through CR activities for our communities, customers, employees and the environment.


As a pioneer Islamic bank which champions the tenets of Islam, in particular wealth sharing and promotion of social justice, Corporate Responsibility has and will always be an integral part of Bank Islam. Throughout our 30-plus year presence in the marketplace, we have been progressive not only in expanding our business but also in our contributions towards social welfare. Our CR programs ranges from community-building and educational support to protecting the environment and poverty alleviation. At the same time, we constantly strive to adapt to the evolving society’s needs and contribute to the overall wellness of local communities.

Our goals are to embrace accountability for all our actions and impress a positive impact through CR activities for communities, the environment as well as our customers and employees. When it comes to giving back to society, we constantly ask ourselves – In what way can we make the greatest impact? It is this very question which laid the foundation for AMAL’s establishment in 2015.

OUR BELIEFS

The heart of our business lies in serving people and when this is achieved, symbiotic benefits are realized.


Supporting communities through giving should be the cornerstone of every company as creating a healthy and sustainable society is the best way to create healthy and sustainable business. In Bank Islam, we believe that the world of banking is more than just about profit as the heart of our business lies in serving people and, when this is achieved, symbiotic benefits are realized.

To us, giving back means more than just giving money. It means putting our heads together and rolling up our sleeves. It means being actively involved by donating time and expertise towards providing the best solutions to improve the lives of people who are in need.

We also hold true to the old adage “a job worth doing is worth doing together”. At Bank Islam, employees are encouraged to participate in our community projects as more can be achieved when our staff come together to serve a common purpose.

Moreover, our belief in the strength of synergy extends to engaging with communities as well as working closely with stakeholders to create solutions. Only by optimizing on the power of working together will we be able to enhance our CR efforts substantially and, in turn, the lives of many more people.

OUR SOURCES OF FUND

We encourage our employees to voluntarily participate in community projects, designed to build camaraderie and teamwork among the employees and create a sense of
belonging.
