The Group continues to monitor the discharge and disposal of waste generated from the production processes.
Waste is separated into hazardous and non-hazardous, packed and stored away in a room and collected by a licensed agent under the Environment Quality Act 1974. The Group has also contracted with agents to collect for recycling waste paper and used plated it generates from the production.
Apart from the printing business, the company has diversified its business practices to venture into sustainable business. The Green Technology Park is put forward as a zero-waste sustainable industrial zone, focusing on the production of non-wood paper from oil palm empty fruit bunches (EFB) by using renewable energy.
The Green Technology Park contributes to various environmental benefits:
- Reduce deforestation
- Reduce greenhouse gas emissions
- Reduce waste by converting by-products to valuable commodities
- Promote renewable energy
