Not Giving A Toss What Others Think

Welcome to another episode of 30 minutes with DailyStraits.com. Our guest today is Malaysian businessman Datuk Dr Vinod Sekhar who is the Chairman and CEO of PETRA Group, a global conglomerate involved in sustainable technologies, manufacturing, infrastructure, media, entertainment, agriculture, lifestyle, research and philanthropy. 

One of Datuk Vinod’s many philanthropic work includes “Saving the Malayan Tiger.”

Through his vision and leadership, the PETRA Group applies the concept of social capitalism to all of its businesses – being profitable whilst ensuring sustainable wealth creation for the betterment of all. 
To date, Datuk Vinod has successfully developed Green Rubber which uses globally patented DeLink technology, and for the first time, allows tyres to become a renewable resource. With over 1.5 billion rubber tyres being discarded each year, Green Rubber is capable of erasing one of the world’s biggest environmental threats.
