Safeguarding the environment

Following two years of the COVID-19 pandemic as a disruptive force in the world, embracing good environmental, social, and governance (ESG) practices is increasingly critical to future-proof companies. Honing in on this, environmental sustainability is vital to support the health of the planet and livelihoods of communities, while subsequently ensuring that the world’s precious natural resources are preserved for future generations. As such, we remain steadfast in our commitment to minimise our environmental footprint and contributing to a greener future ahead.

Material Sustainability Matters

Sustainable water usage
Ultrafiltration system for freshwater filtration
Optimising water consumption
Real-time monitoring system to maintain optimal water usage throughout our production facilities
Responsible wastewater treatment
To date, invested approximately RM90 million into our cutting-edge wastewater treatment plant
Highest standard for effluent discharge
Retained the highest Standard A going beyond compliance for effluent discharge.
Advancing commitment to water stewardship
Established a reduction target of 5% for water consumption intensity by FY2024, with FY2021 as baseline.
Commitment to environmental best practices
Successfully retained ISO 14001:2015 certification our environmental management system.
Monitoring of our operations
Environmental monitoring audits are conducted on a regular basis by both internal and external parties.
Minimising waste to landfill
