Our Sustainability Efforts
Sustainability has always been an integral part of PCG’s business in creating long-term socio-economic growth while minimising its environmental footprint.
As the biggest producer of polymer resin in Southeast Asia, PCG is committed towards supporting the acceleration of the nation’s transition to a New Plastics Economy (NPE) in support of Malaysia’s Roadmap Towards Zero Single-Use Plastics.
This move is crucial in reducing the plastics pollution while safeguarding the environment and communities against climate change.
In our effort to transition towards a circular economy through maximising the plastics value chain, PCG continues to engage in multiple efforts to advance our sustainability goal. PCG will be constructing Asia’s largest advanced chemical recycling plant with a capacity of 33 kilo-tonnes per annum (ktpa), where it is collaborating with Plastics Energy, as its technology provider, in the development of the plant.
PCG also developed and distributed the ‘Plastic, Sustainability & You’ Education (PSYE) module to selected schools and communities at our operation areas to raise awareness on responsible plastic waste management among the community, together with its Be Green initiative, a programme to impart knowledge on sustainability, plastic and responsible waste management along with the aim of creating awareness on sustainable lifestyle.
Beyond that, PCG is also pursuing other sustainable initiatives including diversification of its product offerings into bio-based products. Using in-house technology to convert oil palm biomass to Bio-Monoethylene Glycol (Bio-MEG) which can be used for the manufacturing of mineral water bottles, PCG is currently evaluating the technology for commercial scale production.
PCG also introduced its pro-environment diesel exhaust fluid, PETRONAS AireBlue™, in 2019 that converts harmful Nitrogen Oxides (NOx) emitted by diesel vehicles into harmless nitrogen and water. This product improves the vehicle’s efficacy in reducing NOx emission while prolonging the life of a diesel vehicle’s catalytic converter.
