ECO - FIRENDLY

The system, which recognises car registration numbers, allows visitors, shoppers and tenants to enter and exit Sunway REIT properties within Sunway City Kuala Lumpur, including Sunway Pyramid Shopping Mall, Sunway Resort Hotel, The Pinnacle Sunway and Menara Sunway, without using paper tickets.

ANUGERAH INOVASI NEGERI SELANGOR (AINS) aims to cultivate creativity and innovation within Selangor, recognised the system as an innovation that enhanced Sunway’s parking system by enabling a ticketless and cashless experience.

A circular economy takes place when the end-of-life of a product or a material is restored and turned into a useful resource that eliminates waste. Generating a circular economy will help to reduce waste and ultimately contribute to climate action.

Food waste is one of the largest amounts of waste sent to landfills. In Malaysia, the Solid Waste and Public Cleansing Management Corporation reported that more than 16,600 tonnes of food are wasted every day, of which about 24% are edible and capable of feeding close to three million people a day.

The collected food waste gets broken down in the composting machine, which is capable of decomposing all types of food. Using controlled parameters, including temperature, agitation and airflow in an aerobic environment, the machine is able to convert all types of food into bio-organic compost within 24 hours. The food waste composting machine can reduce food waste volume by up to 80%.

Combatting Plastic Pollution​

  • Our shopping malls reduce plastic usage through various initiatives, including eliminating single-use plastics in packaging from 2022 onwards and ensuring that their suppliers and vendors adopt the plastic-free practice.
  • There was no plastic packaging in our festive gift redemption of 30,000 Chinese New Year ang pao packets and 10,700 Hari Raya duit raya packets. This initiative removed 40,700 of plastic packaging that could otherwise pollute our rivers and oceans, which are vital sources of water and food for us.​​
