SUSTAINABILITY KEY PERFORMANCE INDICATORS (KPIs)
In 2022 we integrated sustainability into Senior Management performance evaluations and Key Performance Indicators (KPI’s) that are linked to remuneration. This includes linking the remuneration for senior executives to climate change performance and ESG performance, such as their management of Sunway REIT’s material sustainability risks and opportunities. The KPIs will also be cascaded to employees within the organization, tracked and reported annually.
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
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.

REDUCING SINGLE-USE PLASTICS
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.
