Caring for Our Environment

Committing to create a greener environment for the next generation.

Committed to Carbon Neutrality by 2040

Overall GHG emissions

Our latest carbon footprint assessment measures the total GHG emissions under the following scopes as defined in the GHG Protocol and have been independently verified by British Standards Institution Services Malaysia (BSI Malaysia) for Reporting Year 2022.

Electricity and energy consumption

To enhance energy efficiency across our offices, an energy audit and measurement studies have been conducted across our operations to identify energy saving potential vehicle fleet.

Arising from the energy audit, initiatives that have been adopted include:

  • Overhauled chiller system to increase its efficiency and installed a refrigerant leak monitoring system.
  • Progressively substitute all conventional lighting with energy saving LED lights.
  • Increased the ambient temperature in our main offices by up to 2°C to conserve energy and maintained an optimal temperature of 24°C.
  • Progressively replacing our ageing precision air-conditioning system which will improve our data centre Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE).
  • Made available two energy-efficient vehicle charging pods at our All Asia Broadcast Centre, Bukit Jalil (AABC) premise.

Our overall electricity consumption in 2022decreased by 3.2% to 29.8 million kWh.

Water consumption

  • We deploy the 3R principles of Reduce, Reuse and Recycle to minimize and optimize our use of all resources, setting the foundation of our environmental stewardship
  • We conduct regular scheduled maintenance to detect and prevent any unscheduled water wastage.
  • In 2022, we fully replaced all our ageing water pipelines within our All Asia Broadcast Centre, Bukit Jalil (AABC) premise to minimize the risk of water wastage.
  • Water consumption increased by 1.8% in 2022 to151,480 m3 as a result of relocating other teams back to the main headquarters, All Asia Broadcast Centre, Bukit Jalil (AABC) under our workspace rationalization programme.
  • We will strive to optimize our water usage to achieve our 3-year water reduction target of 2%

Advocating for a greener planet

    • We run quarterly e-waste recycling programmes during the year to reduce pollution and GHG emissions, as well as save energy and natural resources.
    • Collected over 1 tonne of household e-waste via our collaboration with the Department of Environment (JAS) and E-Waste Recycling Through Heroes (ERTH).
    • Downsized the Ultra and Ulti Boxes by 40% and 80% smaller to reduce e-waste generation and carbon footprint.
    • A majority of materials used for the build and packaging of the Ultra and Ulti Boxes comply with international standards including Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) and Registration and European Union’s Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) while most electronic components used within these decoders are also Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) compliant.
    • Plans are in place to minimize the usage of plastic packaging from our products and move towards greener packaging materials.
