YTL's Wessex Water Funding protects farmland feathers
Wessex Water, 23 October 2013
Funding has been provided to a bird project in Dorset so declining farmland birds can be protected while a new pipeline is laid. Mark Doughty, principal ecologist for our engineering and construction department, explained that it was important Wessex Water did all it could to reduce its impact on the environment while the work was taking place.

“Building a long-distance water main through an area designated as being an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty certainly presents a challenge, but through the SWFBP, we hope that we can also use the opportunity to give a real boost to numbers of farmland birds and other wildlife.

Farmers get a taste of food waste from GENeco, a YTL Wessex Water subsidiary
Wessex Water, 22 June 2013
Farmers from across the South West were among the first visitors to be given a tour in YTL’s Wessex Water new food waste recycling and renewable energy facility in Bristol this week. The facility, which is based at Bristol sewage treatment works in Avonmouth, is operated by Wessex Water through its wholly owned subsidiary company GENeco and transforms 40,000t per year of household and supermarket waste into useful by-products, such as nutrient-rich fertiliser and renewable energy. The fertiliser is produced through anaerobic digestion - a process in which bugs break down biodegradable material to produce methane gas. Each year GENeco recycle around 240,000 tonnes of this nutrient-rich fertiliser to farmers across the region.

Eco-warrior daughter charts YTL's green path
Straits Times, 21 January 2013
Years ago, when Malaysian billionaire Francis Yeoh of YTL Group was shovelling soil and planting shrubs with his eldest child Ruth at his luxury resort on Pangkor island, he was sowing the seeds of something bigger.

The father-and-daughter activity at the rainforest-nestled private island along peninsular Malaysia's west coast formed the green shoots of the corporate eco warrior the girl would become one day.

"He explained that as I grew, so would the seeds, to become majestic trees," she recalls. "Since then, I have always appreciated nature and wanted to do more."

"Weaving environmental protection into the group's businesses was straightforward. YTL has been clean and green for decades, even before words such as 'sustainability', 'corporate social responsibility' and 'carbon credits' became popular terms," she says.

Significant strides to cut waste and carbon footprint have been made within the group's business. GENeco - a subsidiary of YTL's water utilities business in the UK, Wessex Water - has developed a Volkswagen vehicle named the "Bio Bug" which runs on biogas.

Meanwhile, cement manufacturing arm, YTL Cement, produced the first "green" cement in Malaysia by intensifying the production of blended cement.
