Basis Bay sponsors MDBC’s Innovation & Sustainability Awards 2018

Malaysia, 17 June 2019 -- Basis Bay, the leading provider of Sustainable Cloud and IT Infrastructure Services was one of the main sponsors for the Malaysian Dutch Business Council (MDBC) Innovation & Sustainability Awards 2018 (MISA ’18).

Held at the DoubleTree by Hilton Kuala Lumpur, winners were crowned at the MISA ’18 Awards Ceremony & Dinner by VIP guest Y. Bhg. Datuk Isham Ishak (Secretary General, Ministry of International Trade and Industry).

Dato’ Praba Thiagarajah, Group Chief Executive Officer (GCEO), Basis Bay was the keynote speaker at the Innovation Forum, where he presented on the responsibility of the private sectors in adopting Green Information Technology (IT) for not only social and community benefits but as a corporate discipline to drive better value to shareholders, employees and customers. Basis Bay’s proprietary approach to Sustainable Information Technology services is founded on the principle that businesses need to look at sustainable and productive IT best practices to maximise value from their IT and data centre infrastructure.

“At Basis Bay we believe that IT efficiency must go hand-in-hand with consideration for the environment. Working on the awareness, key initiatives and a management framework, we provide Green IT infrastructure that is efficient, green-sourced and e-waste conscious,” explained, Dato’ Praba Thiagarajah during his keynote speech.

“As leaders, we must be committed to delivering value to our stakeholders including the shareholders, our employees and customers. We see Green IT best practices as a unique approach to maximising value, increasing cost savings and being socially responsible,” said Dato’ Praba.

Attendees were treated to an exciting and close battle in all three categories (Best Social Innovation, Best Environmental Innovation, and Best Start-Up / Scale-Up in Sustainable Innovation) during the day’s hackathon programme.

The day’s programme was also the final judging round for all shortlisted finalists, as well as a showcase of best practices. Participants included tertiary students, young professionals, start-ups as well as other junior academics.

As the main sponsor of the MDBC Awards Programme, Basis Bay’s Melissa Sandhu was in the panel of judges for the Best Environmental Innovation category of the awards.

“MISA grows from strength to strength. We are proud of the way it continues to be at the forefront
of awards programs, unique in its focus on the sharing of best practices, aiding in the continued development of innovation and sustainability within the wider marketplace,” said Marco Winter, MDBC Executive Director.

H.E. Karin Mössenlechner (Ambassador, Embassy of the Kingdom of The Netherlands and Chief Judge of MISA’18) added, “The finalists in the three categories encouraged us to work on a more innovative, sustainable future. They did this by making innovation central to their business models and showing us that innovation can be profitable, which is an inspiration for all participants and the wider business community to innovate and go green.”
