Scientex » Sustainability » For the Betterment of the Environment
Recognising our responsibility to contribute to the preservation of a healthy planet for future generations, we are consistently expanding our framework for environmental sustainability to keep up with expanding worldwide concerns such as Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions and climate change.
At the same time, we place high importance on the proper use and procurement of materials and other resources across our business operations and continually improve our approach to minimising waste, boosting reusability, improving recyclability, and making effective use of our manufacturing and construction raw materials.
Our various focus areas and commitments are enshrined in our Group-wide Environmental Policy, while our expectations of our employees and suppliers are similarly outlined in other respective policies.
In our roles as a global player in the flexible plastic packaging industry and national developer of affordable homes, we are cognisant of the waste that our business activities and operations may generate. We further acknowledge the importance of responsible waste management at a time when the world’s growing population is generating increasing amounts of refuse and pollution.
Our approach to waste management encompasses:
In FY2022, total non-hazardous plastic waste as a percentage of output decreased by 23.6%, due to our ongoing initiatives on waste management across our plants.
We have always placed great value on the responsible usage and procurement of materials and other resources used within our Packaging and Property Divisions. Over the years, we have continually enhanced our packaging product designs and processes to further optimise our material consumption and thus reduce our carbon footprint.
Our approach to optimising material use encompasses:
In FY2022, recycled materials constitute 7.8% of the total material used in our Packaging Division.
With the acceleration of climate change, the onus is upon us, as a major manufacturer and property developer, to adopt low carbon energy technologies and introduce energy efficient production technologies that will make a meaningful difference to our energy consumption and emissions. We have also stepped up our efforts to minimise the indirect emissions that occur across our supply chain and throughout the lifecycles of our products.
The steps we have taken include:
In FY2022, our energy consumption intensity per unit of revenue has reduced by 9.9%, while the GHG emissions intensity per unit of revenue has reduced by 10.9%.
Over the years, we have continually expanded our framework governing environmental sustainability in order to keep pace with rising global challenges and maintain our reputation as a responsible corporate citizen. This entails a rigorous commitment towards upholding compliance with all applicable environmental regulations in the regions where we operate, while at the same time encouraging our supply chain to a similarly high standard of responsibility.
Our approach encompasses:
