Cost remains a factor in recycling industrial waste
The Star, 23 April 2008
"The cost factor is a major consideration for industrial waste processing," Dr. Kenny Tang told reporters at the launch of the book, WASTEnomics, turning waste liabilities into assets, which he co-edited with YTL Corp Bhd executive director of the construction division Jacob Yeoh. As an example, YTL's development in Sentul was using 100% rainwater irrigation for its landscaped gardens. “We also use gravity to power the irrigation and, therefore, save on energy usage as well. And since we don't have to take water from the (city's water) system we save on cost too,” Yeoh said. YTL's wholly-owned water and wastewater utility in Britain, Wessex Water, was also meeting up to 20% of its power needs through generating energy from methane gas from sewage sludge. At times of low power usage, Wessex Water was able to sell excess energy back to the power grid, making savings of over 20%, Yeoh said.

YTL's 2nd Climate Change Week 2008
Kuala Lumpur, 12 April 2008
"This year, our Wessex Water has increased the total amount of renewable energy generated from 21GWh to 25.8GWh. This is indeed significant because it equates to almost 39% of our total energy use, compared with the national water industry figure of 14% in 2005 and 2006. Following the increase in our use of renewable energy over the last 2 years, the levels of all emissions have fallen considerably. For example, the level of sulphur dioxide we emit each year has been reduced by over 60% in the last decade. With these results, we are pleased to say that Wessex Water is currently meeting our target path of reducing emissions by 60% between 1990 and 2050, as prescribed in the UK Climate Change Bill." said Tan Sri (Dr.) Francis Yeoh Managing Director, YTL Corporation Berhad in his speech during the Launch of Climate Change Week 2008.

Rare reaching out to preserve nature
NST Online, 16 December 2007
Three such campaigns jointly funded by Rare and YTL Corporation, are expected to kick off in Malaysia sometime next year. Rare is now working with Worldwide Fund for Nature (WWF) Malaysia to identify partner organisations here who'd like to volunteer one of their staff to train and run such a campaign over the next 1 and a half years. The group is looking for young, gung-ho and committed people who'll be able to inspire conservation as campaign managers. And, hopefully, this someone will have some experience in community development, too, because that's what it's all about,' says Rare's Nigel Sizer.

Movers and Shakers of 2007
The Star Online, 10 December 2007
Homegrown companies prove their worth. This year YTL also intensified its climate change awareness activities, organising a very well received Climate Change Week in March. In showing its commitment to promoting climate change awareness, YTL engaged in-house engineers and ecologists to see how much more it could do to make sure its operations minimised any impact on the environment.
