GREEN BUILDING

In our continuous effort to adapt to climate change and future-proof our properties, we ensure that our buildings strive for green certification standards through sustainable refurbishment practices. Sunway Carnival Shopping Mall targets to achieve the GreenRE Gold and Green Mark Gold Plus certifications in FY2021 due to an expansion of the mall. The mall has also been refurbished and targets to receive another set of the certifications by 2025.

EFFICIENT RESOURCE MANAGEMENT

EFFICIENT ENERGY MANAGEMENT

As a sustainable Manager, we aspire to gradually move away from relying on fossil fuels. In this context, we take proactive measures such as expanding infrastructure and investing in upgraded technologies that are energy efficient. The following include our activities with regards to energy reduction.

Earth Hour Lights Off

LED lighting replacement

Energy efficient appliances

Chiller optimisation

Building Energy Management System (BEMS)

EFFICIENT WATER MANAGEMENT

Harvesting rain water is central to our approach of sustainable water resource management. The system collects and stores rain water before distributing it for utilisation. In 2016, Sunway Clio Hotel installed its Rain Water Harvesting System (RWHS) to collect rain water for irrigation. In FY2019, Sunway Pyramid Shopping Mall and Menara Sunway also implemented the RWHS for cleaning and irrigation. With the RWHS, Menara Sunway saved a total of 1,504m3 of water or RM3,370 since its installation in November 2019.

GREEN INITIATIVES

REDUCING SINGLE-USE PLASTICS

FABRIC RECYCLING

TACKLING FOOD WASTE

Sunway Pyramid Shopping Mall collaborated with Sunway Resort and Sunway REIT to invest in food waste composting machines that convert food waste into organic compost as soil conditioner for Sunway City’s landscape. The initiative was part of their Food CPR (Compost. Plant. Reduce) campaign that started in September 2019. In FY2020, Menara Sunway sent 3,594 kg of food waste to be composted to a composting farm that grows composting worms and black soldier fly maggots that naturally break down food waste into compost.

REPURPOSING USED SOAP

Through the #SunwaySoapful initiative, we have donated repurposed soap to help communities who are in need.

REPURPOSED COOKING OIL

Sunway Hotels continue to collaborate with FatHopes Energy Sdn Bhd, a waste to energy company, to repurpose cooking oil from the hotels’ kitchens. The hotels embarked on the programme in April 2019 and aim to repurpose 25% of used cooking oil by 2022 based on consumption and to repurpose 50% of used cooking oil by 2030.
