Addressing Climate Change

The past two centuries have seen myriad “tipping points” for our planet – climate change, rapid urbanisation as well as population growth are all clear indicators that we must find a balance between meeting the demands of our global community and maintaining the ecological equilibrium to sustain our planet.

In 2021, we joined more than 1,700 organisations worldwide to support the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD). Our commitment to disclosure in accordance with the recommendations of TCFD will help our company identify and assess risks posed by climate change. We will continue to accelerate our sustainability strategy towards continued growth, and to attract capital for continuous low-carbon innovation while driving to deliver a sustainable future for all.

We continue to address these emergencies through our sustainable business practices, smart integrated townships, and our partnership with the United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network (UN-SDSN) as part of our ongoing efforts to build a more progressive and sustainable future.

Urban Forestry and Farms

We perform conservation and rehabilitation efforts in our cities as well as urban farming for efficient land use. Urban farms create green spaces, recycle waste, reduce mileage on food transportation, provide employment, prevent erosion and act as a natural carbon sequestration system, thus building resilient cities.

Efficient Resource Management

Our business, as well as the use of our products and services depend on and impact the natural environment in a variety of ways. We leverage on our Build-Own-Operate business model to create future-proof, climate-resilient communities through the entire value chain of our townships’ and assets’ lifecycle.

Responsible Waste Management

We are mindful of the impact that developments have on our environment, and constantly strive to be more efficient and conscientious in exploring new ways of going green.

Sunway is committed to managing our waste responsibly and reducing our waste to landfills. We recognise the harmful effects waste can have on the environment – from GHG emissions to land and water pollution that can cause harm to wildlife. In 2020, Sunway diverted 4% of its waste.
