BUILDING AN EQUITABLE AND CLIMATE-RESILIENT SOCIETY

Amid another challenging year with the emergence of new COVID- 19 variants, Sunway forged ahead with solid sustainability measures to generate long-term tangible impacts for the planet and future generations. Guided by its five sustainability goals, the Group took action internally and externally by combatting climate change, investing in its people and giving back to society.

Dear Valued Stakeholders,

 

We have been through two years of uncertainties and disruptions as we battled the COVID-19 pandemic. As the world pulled together to combat the virus with vaccinations, we saw the effects of the virus widening the gap between the rich and the poor. Underprivileged children who could not afford digital devices to attend online school lessons were forced to be left behind while daily wage earners from the lower-income group lost their jobs during lockdown periods.

 

These challenges were exacerbated by destructive weather events that further disrupted daily lives. Malaysia was hit by one of the worst floods in decades in December 2021, described as ‘once in a hundred years’ rainfall by the government. These incidents reinforced the importance of our readiness to adopt both mitigation and adaptation actions.

 

The pursuit of a sustainability agenda is in Sunway’s DNA, instilled from the Board to Management and employees. It is the right thing to do, and we will continue to do well by doing good. We are relentless in advancing the sustainability agenda amid current challenging times and we will continue to integrate sustainability into our business decisions, management and operations.

“Sunway is, by every standard, a world leader in sustainable development and an inspiration to businesses and civil societies around the world.”

 

“Sunway thrives because it prioritises human wellbeing and inspires the best in all of its stakeholders and admirers.”

Professor Jeffrey D. Sachs
