OUR
ENVIRONMENT
At PLUS, we aim to minimise our environmental impact by
continuously deploying comprehensive operational controls,
appropriate technology and sustainable maintenance and
construction activities as well as focussing our services on
addressing environmental issues.

our environment

PLUS’ Environmental Policy promotes business practices as
well as products and services that are environmentally
friendly and sustainable. To minimise our impact on the
environment around us, we continue to employ comprehensive
operational controls, appropriate technology and sustainable
maintenance and construction activities.

Environmental Policy
“It is the Policy of PLUS to provide Expressway products and
services that are environmentally friendly. In implementing
this policy, PLUS, in accordance with international standards
will continually improve the management of air, water, sound
and soil pollution in compliance with legislative requirements
while promoting the conservation of the environment.”

PLUS’ Environmental Management
As a leading expressway provider in Malaysia, we have a
structured Environmental Management System (EMS) that is
systematically monitored by the respective divisions and
heads. PLUS’ environmental guidelines are in line with the
International Environmental Standard (ISO 14001:2004) with
an objective to minimise the impact of our business activities
on the environment. Our EMS is being developed to support
the implementation of environmental measures as a primary
management objective.

The overall structure and responsibilities of the EMS are as follows:

Managing Director
Establish environmental policy

Steering Committee
Formulate policy and report performance
to the Managing Director

Implementation
Committee
Establish implementation plan, formulate
objectives and target, and monitor
performance

Head of Department,
Regions and Sections
Process owners – establish, maintain and
implement operational control

PLUS Sustainability Report 2011

page 74

The EMS Committee has been formed, comprising of senior
management of PLUS personnel, with the following
responsibilities and authorities:
+ Endorse all environmental policies, objectives and targets
to be adopted and established by the Company
+ Review all policies governing PLUS’ Environmental
Management System to ensure its continued suitability,
adequacy and effectiveness
+ Vet and approve the implementation of proposed
programmes aimed at achieving PLUS’ environmental
policies, objectives and targets
+ Vet and approve the provision of essential resources for
the implementation and continued effectiveness of PLUS
Environmental Management System

The Committee assisted by the process owner, is required
to identify inputs and outputs arising from activities, products
and services. It is followed by identifying the environmental
aspects and impacts that arise from those inputs and
outputs at the respective location (i.e. department, region
office, section office, toll plaza, mainline). The identification
process covers the following aspects and categories:
+ Air emissions
+ Energy
+ Materials (Procurement, storage and usage)
+ Water effluent
+ Waste
+ Water consumption
+ Other issues

Climate change, environmental awareness and GHG emissions
In line with the 10th Malaysia Plan to reduce carbon intensity and address the issue of climate change, PLUS has been
helping to decelerate the pace of global warming by reducing GHG emissions in highways over many years. As a leading
expressway operator in Malaysia, our business model is intrinsically linked to GHG emissions from fossil fuels. The use of
our expressways and road networks also reduce GHG and other atmospheric-pollution emissions.
PLUS management activities are conducted with traffic efficiency as a primary consideration. We believe that improving traffic
efficiency is a primary consideration. We believe that efficient traffic management helps to reduce the impact of road use on climate
change. We have also strengthened our strategic response to the significant challenge posed by climate change. This includes tree
planting, energy-saving devices, use of solar panels and reducing the congestion at toll plazas as well as mainlines.
We encourage the use of our Electronic Toll Collection (ETC) to reduce the congestion at toll plazas. This also reduces the
harmful vehicle exhaust emissions (in particular GHG emissions), which may cause global warming.
