Emission Reduction & Balancing

GHG EMISSIONS ACROSS OUR VALUE CHAIN

GHG REDUCTION THROUGH OPERATIONS

Drive operational eco-efficiency across all sites

SCOPE 1
Reporting Company

PRODUCTION PLANTS

COMPANY VEHICLES

COMPANY FACILITIES

FY2021 GHG SCOPE 1 INTENSITY = 0.01 kg CO2e per kg of production output*^

TARGET OUTPUT

To achieve total 10% GHG reduction of Scope 1 & Scope 2 by 2025

Scope 1: Direct GHG emissions from sources that are owned or controlled by a company

GHG REDUCTION THROUGH PARTNERSHIP

Collaborate towards efficiency via recycling, green sourcing, use of new technologies, etc.

SCOPE 2
Upstream Activities

PURCHASED ELECTRICITY FOR OWN USE

FY2021 GHG SCOPE 2 INTENSITY = 0.492 kg CO2e per kg of production output* (location- based)

TARGET OUTPUT

To achieve total 10% GHG reduction of Scope 1 & Scope 2 by 2025

Scope 2: Indirect GHG emissions resulting from the electricity purchased by a company

SCOPE 3
Upstream & Downstream Activities

PURCHASED GOODS, SERVICES & CAPITAL GOODS

FUEL & ENERGY RELATED ACTIVITIES

BUSINESS TRAVEL & EMPLOYEE COMMUTING

TRANSPORTATION & DISTRIBUTION

WASTE GENERATED IN OPERATIONS

WATER CONSUMPTION

TARGET OUTPUT

To set up data collection system & progressively report the GHG reduction of Scope 3 until 2030

Scope 3: Indirect GHG emissions from sources not owned or directly controlled by a company but related to the company’s activities

* FY2021 reporting boundary – All plastic production plants located in the West of Malaysia
^ Derived from consumption of diesel and petrol of the companies

We have identified Scope 2 with the most potential positive impact for achieving our stated emission targets. In Malaysia, limitation of available rooftop space is our main challenge to increase utilisation of renewable energy, i.e. solar photovoltaic system. While we are looking for solutions to reduce consumption of fossil-based energy, we subscribed to Green Electricity Tariff (GET) Programme by TNB. We became the largest subscriber in Kedah and the top 10 in Malaysia. We will be leapfrogging toward fulfilling our commitment to achieve a 10% reduction in combined Scope 1 & 2 intensity by 2025.   With the subscription to GET, we transition into 100% renewable energy for our polyethene plastic packaging plants in West Malaysia.  

Electric Forklift

During the first 7 months of year 2022, TG Group has procured 10 electric forklifts as part of our decarbonisation and equipment modernisation plan. Electric forklift doesn’t release as much harmful emission and pollution like diesel-based models. This helps to improve air quality as well.      

Future capital investment

We have allocated budget of RM30 million on sustainability investment for year 2021 to year 2025. However, we commit that we will carefully evaluate all our future capital expenditure to consider climate change risk and align with our decarbonisation goals. This is also to support Paris Agreement’s objective of limiting global warming to 1.5 degree Celsius.
