Efficient waste management continues to be a key area in our environmental management. We remain guided by a waste management hierarchy and strongly believe in waste prevention where possible, as we strive to reduce our waste to landfills from across our operations.

PREVENTION

We prioritise waste prevention whenever possible in all our operations. Our aim is to optimise our resources and share our knowledge with the local communities in which we operate to reduce waste generation and GHG emissions.

REDUCTION

We strive to reduce our waste generation through various waste reduction initiatives. At Sunway Malls, Sunway Lagoon Theme Park and Sunway Pyramid Shopping Mall, the use of biodegradable plastics, metal straws and bamboo utensils is encouraged, while their staff are urged to bring their own containers to purchase food and drinks.

REUSE

Our business divisions try to reduce waste by reusing their materials and resources whenever possible. For instance, our offices reuse their festive season decorative items while Sunway Malls exchange decorative items with each other.

RECYCLING

Recycling is practised within all our premises, where recyclable items such as paper, cardboard boxes, plastic, bottles and cans are collected by recycling vendors. We always advocate the segregation of waste among our retail and office tenants, as well as shoppers, by providing waste segregation bins.

RECOVERY

When it comes to waste that is not recyclable or reusable, we apply the recovery method and turn it into something useful. Recovery means using waste to create valuable products. Six of our hotels have been selling used cooking oil to waste energy company, FatHopes Energy, which processes the oil into biodiesel.

DISPOSAL

We dispose of all waste that is not recyclable or reusable in compliance with local laws and regulations. This means segregating scheduled waste, including clinical waste, from general waste. We ensure that our hazardous waste is managed by appointed and licensed vendors, who dispose of the waste in places designated by the regulators.
