With the recent ratification of Paris Agreement, climate change is undeniably one of the top global challenges that requires concerted international efforts. As a conglomerate with operations in power generation, cement production and construction, YTL understands that our business activities can have direct and indirect environmental impacts. For that, YTL is committed to continually improve our understanding of the full environmental impacts of our operations whilst finding ways to reduce our carbon footprint across our operations by minimising our energy usage, improving efficiency and opting for more renewable energy alternatives.
Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy
As one of the key regional players in the power generation sector, YTL is committed to pursuing green practices and steadily increasing renewable energy technologies and usage across our diversified operations as part of our efforts in minimising the impact of our emissions to our customers and communities.
High waste generation is a growing urban issue thus proper waste management is vital to prevent harm to the environment. YTL remains committed to developing new waste solutions by embracing the key principle of 5Rs- Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Repair, Refuse whilst refrain from disposing waste to landfill or via incineration.
YTL champions responsible use of available resources which are mostly limited or non-renewable as another key to being sustainable. We promote proper planning and management to optimise resource usage by reducing consumption, promote use of alternative materials and recycle materials whenever possible.
Biodiversity & Conservation
Extinction or loss of species are rapidly happening in an alarming rate at the expense of human development. Recognising the need to preserve and conserve the existing biodiversity, YTL is dedicated to integrating biodiversity in our sustainable development strategies as well as partnering with leading non-governmental groups to help us address issues that we may not have the expertise, skills or resources to manage on our own.
