Our Environment

WE ARE COMMITTED TO MINIMISING OUR ENVIRONMENTAL FOOTPRINT BY CLOSELY MONITORING THE IMPACT OUR OPERATIONS HAVE ON THE ENVIRONMENT AND CONTINUOUSLY IMPROVING OUR PERFORMANCE.

Our environmental management programme focuses on understanding, controlling and minimising our environmental impacts. In FY2016, we further entrenched our critical environmental standards through training and awareness programmes, and continued to identify and implement environmental improvement initiatives. Our key environmental performance indicators have improved, mainly driven by variations in operational activities and improvement initiatives.
