Sustainability in Action: BUILDS’ Second Recycling Open Day in Conjunction with Hari Alam Sekitar Negara 2023

On the 14th of October 2023, the momentum of sustainability continued to grow as BUILDS hosted its second Recycling Open Day at Wisma YTL Cement. This remarkable event, in collaboration with Geo Alam Environmental, aimed to inspire and promote sustainable waste management practices, all in conjunction with Hari Alam Sekitar Negara 2023.

From the early hours of the morning, YTL Cement employees, their families and friends arrived Wisma YTL Cement's recycling booths, bringing with them carloads of recyclables. As a token of our appreciation, these contributors received a sweet treat – free ice cream!

By the close of the event, we had amassed an impressive 1,600 kg of recyclable items, encompassing paper, plastic, metal, e-waste, and textiles. All of this was made possible through the extraordinary generosity of our employees and the hard work of our dedicated team of volunteers.

This initiative serves as a shining example of our commitment to our sustainability pillar, "Helping Malaysia Build Greener," and reflects our dedication to alleviating the strain on our environment by giving recyclables a second life. What's more, all proceeds generated from the sale of these recyclable items will be directed towards supporting a noteworthy NGO program.

Through this initiative, YTL Cement employees, families, and friends have not only played a pivotal role in diverting waste from landfills but have also extended their support to empower the community. This aligns perfectly with our 'Building Capacity and the Community' Sustainability Pillar and is a significant contribution to Hari Alam Sekitar Negara 2023, as we continue to contribute positively to the community's development and sustainability.
