Reshaping the Business Towards a Sustainable Future
UEM Edgenta’s sustainability is anchored on the three pillars of sustainability, Economic, Environmental and Social, and projected through three key themes:
MD/CEO'S Statement
Embracing Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) practices is a balancing act that requires us to embed sustainability in the work that we do and the services that we offer while upholding strong corporate values. It is about making choices that are very important to the Environment and to the People that work with us and together with us. It is about us making sure that we uphold integrity, compliance and good governance in everything we do. 

While the ESG conversation is rapidly taking place amongst our shareholders, we want to make it part of our DNA and demonstrate ESG in our daily activities. This means entrenching ESG into our operational culture, strengthening our policies, investing into markets that value ESG, paying close attention to basic human rights principles and leading our supply chain and the industry with ESG practices through our Sustainability Roadmap. Ultimately, we want to build a resilient, sustainable company that is not just profitable, but one that all stakeholders will benefit from.
