Since our humble beginnings in 1955, YTL Sustainability sits at the heart of our approach to business. Social responsible and sustainable operations are a norm to us. Operating sustainably is an integral and vital component of our business strategy. Our ambition is to provide our customers and consumers with products and services that meet their expectations whilst minimising the impact of our operations on the environment and local communities around us.
We strive to integrate sustainability initiatives into the Group's business model. We are fully committed to being a responsible corporate citizen and we strive to bring positive change as a force for good by improving lives everywhere we operate, aiming for a healthy, safe and sustainable environment and considering the needs of the present generation whilst, a the same time, anticipating the needs of future generations. We continually raise awareness of sustainability issues amongst our staff, to build value for our stakeholders; and to manage our businesses and serving our customers as sustainably as possible.
On reporting and transparency, our first Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) report was launched in 2018. We also have two YTL Group companies represented in the FTSE4Good Bursa Malaysia Index of just 56 Malaysian companies – the first was YTL Corporation Berhad included in 2017 and the second was YTL Power International Berhad (YTLPI) added in June 2018.
