Our Sustainability Development Goals

To strengthen our commitment to become an ESG-centric company, we released our first standalone Sustainability Report, which presents an overview of GHL’s efforts to address key environmental, social and governance issues.

In 2021, we launched our Sustainability Framework, towards becoming a more sustainable socially responsible company that embraces sustainability values across all our business practices, as we aim to become carbon-neutral by 2050.

We are committed towards enhancing our business model in accordance with our Sustainability Framework, with the aim to create, deliver, and capture value for all our stakeholders without depleting the natural, economic, and social capital that we rely on. This is in line with our corporate commitments that address climate change, social injustice, and corporate governance, as a member of the CEO Action Network (CAN) and also in accordance with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDGs).

Sustainability Initiatives
Greening Malaysia Programme 2021-2025
We partnered with Econinja on the Greening Malaysia Programme 2021-2025 to sequester carbon through tree and coral reef planting. Approximately 300 trees and 50 m2 of coral reefs were planted in FY2021, with our offset performance tracked through Econinja.
Renewable Energy
We have begun installing photovoltaic solar panels on our office buildings to increase renewable energy generation and to decrease our reliance on grid electricity. Currently, this initiative is being piloted at our headquarters, and we hope to expand it across the Group in the coming years.

CSR Campaigns
We exercise our corporate responsibility through collaboration with local non-governmental organisations (“NGOs”) to address community needs. Our flagship programme “Support Our Merchants & Care for Community” is focused on raising donations to support GHL Merchants and local NGOs amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. The programme acts as CSR donation fund to purchase items from GHL-affiliated merchants who are affected by COVID-19.
