Energy & Climate Change

We recognise the urgency to mitigate climate change and are committed to reducing our energy consumption, hence our GHG emissions intensity, to play our part in global efforts towards this end. We have applied various initiatives to improve our energy performance across our value chain, from manufacturing, packaging, storage and logistics, to end use and disposal.

For example, our new warehouse in Shah Alam, and the Regional Distribution Centre (RDC) in Rojana, Thailand, will significantly reduce shunting and double handling, while the installation of Automated Storage and Retrieval System (ASRS) at both warehouses will minimise the use of forklifts, thus reducing fuel usage.

Other than switching to more energy efficient operations at our plants, we are investing into renewable energy (RE) to decouple our activities from carbon emissions.

  • In April 2020, we commissioned our first solar photovoltaic (PV) system in our Rojana plant with a generating capacity of 1MWp.
  • In FY2022, we completed the installation of solar roofs at our Shah Alam, Pulau Indah and Bentong plants with a total capacity of 10MWp. The plan is to replace at least 20% of our total energy needs in Malaysia with clean energy by 2022.
