Managing Our Impact on the Environment

We promote responsible environmental protection practices among our employees and stakeholders. We also support the Government’s efforts in formulating appropriate climate change policies for the country such as the National Corporate Greenhouse Gases (“GHG”) Reporting Programme for Malaysia (“MyCarbon”).

Internally, we have taken steps to manage the impact of our operations on the environment. Our plan in the future is to review our sustainability approach and disclosure, and further identify environmental matters that may be material to our business.

While we complied with all relevant legislation and received no environmental management complaints last year, we strived to reduce or avoid any impact of our operations on the environment, setting a GHG emission reduction target as one of our Key Performance Indicators.

As electricity consumption makes up 96% of our GHG emission with paper consumption and business air travel making up the rest, we aim to reduce our GHG emission by 0.5% year-on-year. This will ensure that we continue to find ways to reduce the impact of our operations on the environment.

Our Performance

Our detailed GHG emissions data with methodologies, assumptions and conversion factors is as below. In 2015, our GHG emissions from electricity usage, business air travel and paper consumption was reduced by 1.42% year-on-year. We have also disclosed detailed energy consumption, water usage and waste data in the Other EES Performance Data section of this Report.

GHG Protocol Emission Scope Source of Emission GHG Emission (In Tonnes of CO2 Equivalent)

  1. Our GHG emission scope and source of emission were referenced to GHG Protocol – A Corporate Accounting and Reporting Standard of the World Resources Institute and World Business Council for Sustainable Development.
    • Scope 2 refers to indirect GHG emissions from consumption of purchased electricity, heat or steam.
    • Scope 3 refers to other indirect emissions, such as the extraction and production of purchased materials and fuels, transportrelated activities in vehicles not owned or controlled by the reporting entity, electricity-related activities (e.g. transmission and distribution losses) not covered in Scope 2, outsourced activities, waste disposal, etc.
  2. GHG emission was computed as follows:
    • GHG emission for electricity usage was calculated by multiplying quantity of purchased electricity (kWh) by 0.684 tonnes CO2/MWh emission (factor is based on 2007 report by Pusat T enaga Malaysia titled “Study on grid connected electricity baselines in Malaysia”)
    • GHG emission for business air travel was based on the International Civil Aviation Organisation Carbon Emissions Calculator. Carbon footprint was computed for each man trip made.
    • GHG emission from paper consumption used VfU Indicator 2005 emission calculator. No emission was calculated for 2009 due to lack of data.
