Materials Matters

Energy and Emissions

We have identified electricity usage as one of the k ey contributors to our environmental impact.

To minimise our energy consumption and emissions, we always promote responsible use of electricity such as turning equipment or appliances off when not in use and take advantage of natural lighting, ventilation, and cooling where possible.

Electricity purchased from TNB (kWh)* 418,725 318,196 463,951
Solar/ renewable fuel consumption (kWh)** N/A N/A 17,223

Total floor areas (m2) 4,888 4,888 4,888
Energy intensity (kWh/m2) 85.66 65.10 98.44

We take initiatives to play our part in managing and reporting emission in alignment with global efforts towards tackling climate change. Currently, our emission estimation is derived directly from purchased energy and offset against the emission avoidance contributed by our solar panel system, and it has yet to consider Other Indirect (Scope 3) emissions.

Our Solar Project

We have completed the installation of solar panel system on our offices in Klang, which is able to generate approximately 61,800 kWh electricity and offset 41 metric tonnes of CO2 annually, equivalent to the CO2 absorbed by 1,236 trees in one year. Actual electricity generated may depend on weather conditions. The solar panel system is expected to begin operation in FY2023.

In July 2022, our solar panel power generation systems begun to generate power and contributed 17,223 kWh for the Group's use, helping us avoid an approximately 9.5 tonnes of CO2e.

Waste Management

Paper waste represents one of the key forms of non-hazardous waste generated from the HP Division. In ELK-Desa, we have a structured process to manage wastepaper due to the sensitivity of information including customer information that may appear on wastepaper.

We have also undertaken various initiatives to minimise wastage, such as setting all printers and photocopiers to 2-sided printing to reduce unnecessary paper wastage by 50%, increasing awareness and promoting environmentally friendly habits among our employees.

Performance in FY2023

100% of our 20,468 kg paper waste is recycled by our outsourced shredding service vendor
