2014 Pwint Thit Sa
The Myanmar Centre for Responsible Business launched the first TiME/Pwint Thit Sa report in July 2014.
This report was the first to look at the transparency of Myanmar company websites relating to information on responsible business practices and drew on established methodology from Transparency International to analyse the information company websites provided on anti-corruption, organizational transparency, human rights, and health, safety and the environment (HSE).
The 2014 report showed that nine of the largest Myanmar companies, led by KBZ, Parami, and Max Myanmar, had published a significant amount of information about their policies, standards and practices on these issues. However, 25 of the 60 largest companies were not at all transparent, having no websites and therefore scoring zero on the survey.
A number of other companies had published only a little information, generally relating to anti-corruption or organizational transparency. Companies scored fewest points in the areas of human rights, land acquisition, and HSE, where the Centre sought evidence both of policy approaches and information about their implementation.
