Sustainability @ Boustead
Sustainability to Boustead is about operating in a manner that allow us to create short, medium and long-term value for our various stakeholders – our customers, shareholders, business partners, vendors, employees and the community – by:
Upholding strong corporate governance to secure our stakeholders’ trust
Meeting our commitment to shareholders
Ensuring our products and services are relevant
Developing talents and safeguarding their well-being
Protecting our natural capital
Contributing to social equity
In 2021, we aligned our sustainability strategy with the newly launched Boustead Hijau (BIJAU) Agenda, which will guide us as we integrate Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) principles into the core of our operations.
Our aim is not only to minimise our environmental footprint but to protect the environment through eco-friendly products and solutions. In the social realm, we are moving towards digitilisation and innovation across our organisation that will enable us to develop products that are inclusive and accessible by people who were previously underserved or unserved.
Supporting these efforts is a continuously strengthened governance framework to ensure transparency and integrity in all our actions. Integrity is a key value at Boustead; it represents our soul. As we work towards sustainability, we will do so with integrity and sincerity, which underpins everything we do.
