Malaysian Government Announces First Group of Social Enterprises to Get Accredited

The Ministry of Entrepreneur Development & Cooperatives efforts to promote the social enterprise movement has received a boost with the ministry recently announcing 22 social enterprises who have received the Social Enterprise Accreditation. This is a new national certification that provides social enterprises with recognition and a means to communicate their commitments on social and environmental impact. The announcement comes after the launch of the Social Enterprise Accreditation Guideline by MED in April 2019. The guideline highlights the types of social enterprises and the various business models that can be adopted, discusses the benefits of being registered or recognised as a social enterprise, provides a detailed list of the accreditation criteria and a deep dive into the process to get accredited.
