Green Environment

We are committed towards the conservation of the environment, with a special focus on environmental management, as well as tackling climate change. Over the years, numerous efforts have been made to improve our operations locally and globally.

UEM’s Environmental Commitment is enriched with the adoption of Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) whilst focusing on matters which we directly control and influence. UEM Group’s environmental initiatives focus on Energy and Climate, Materials, Ecosystem and Local Impact.

Our key sustainable and green environmental initiatives are as follows:

UEM Green Squad

UEM Green Squad was introduced in 2014 with an objective to spearhead environmental initiatives involving employees of UEM Group. Several inter-department contests are hosted throughout the year revolving around recycling, saving electricity consumption and bringing food containers, among others.

The formation of UEM Green Squad is in line with one of UEM Group’s main sustainability initiatives known as “Living Green”, a sustainable initiative to expose employees on the importance of the environment and how we are able to manage our environmental impacts by adopting good environmental practices. Living Green also serves as a framework for strategic initiatives, which will change our way in protecting the environment.

SIREH Park @Iskandar Puteri
UEM Sunrise will develop the Regional Open Space in Iskandar Puteri into world-class sustainable natural Heritage Park – SIREH Park @Iskandar Puteri, which will be opened to public in early 2018. Bound to be the largest public park in the country with approximately 343 acres land to be developed, SIREHPark @Iskandar Puteri is aimed to encourage aesthetic appreciation of the planted areas and also outdoor activities. (In the planning and design phase, UEM Sunrise aim to preserve as much existing vegetation, minimize slope cutting and maintain any existing water bodies).

CIMA – Alternative Fuel and Raw Material Use
CIMA became the first company to install an integrated alternative fuel combustion system using tyres and biomass waste. In March 2014, an alternative fuel combustion system from Japan’s Taiheiyo Engineering Corporation (TEC) was successfully installed at the NSCI Bahau Plant. This alternative fuel combustion system uses tyres and biomass waste, such as palm kernel shell and empty fruit bunch as an alternative fuel source for the plant’s clinker production.

The implementation was the result of a Government-to-Government cooperation between Japan and Malaysia. A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed in 2012 between NEDO, MPOB and MRB, which then led to a successful implementation, by the private sector of both countries represented by TEC and CIMA.
