Basis Bay Group chief executive officer Datuk Praba Thiagarajah said the company was proud to partner Pink Polo 2018 in funding research for Breast Cancer.
“Breast cancer is so commonly diagnosed in women that we often forget that it also affects men. Being a part of the Pink Polo initiative is reflective of Basis Bay’s values of sustainability.
“We strongly advocate that it is the social responsibility of all organisations to give back to society in the essence of corporate sustainability,” he said.
Basis Bay, a leading provider of Sustainable Cloud and IT services internationally, was one of the corporate sponsors of the event.
