We believe that our business depends on the environment and we have the power decide how our business affects our environment. At Mun Australia, we pledge to abide by all environmental laws and regulations in Australia and New Zealand, as well as the requirements outlined in the ISO 14001 environmental management system to create a sustainable environment.
Our group of companies has a long history of supplying environmentally friendly products all around the world. The group has been admitted to the FTSE4Good Bursa Malaysia Index in recognition of our dedication towards good environmental, social and corporate governance practices. Here are some of the significant investments we made:
Renewable energy – our biomass energy plants are a technological feat that is unprecedented in the industry in converting waste that is otherwise useless to valuable renewable energy resource. This avoids emission of greenhouse gases such as carbon monoxide and methane from anaerobic waste decomposition. The biomass plants were the first in the industry to be successfully registered to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) or Kyoto Protocol, enabling accumulation of negotiable carbon credits.
Water usage and water treatments – our very own water treatment plants and water reserves are certified sustainable technologies which not only conserve water, but also control the water quality in its manufacturing process. Our effluent water discharge meets the Department of Environment’s highest benchmark, ensuring effluent discharged is harmless to the environment.
Energy efficiency and effective resource management – continuous efforts to reduce energy consumption and carbon footprint are achieved through conscientious efforts in Overall Equipment Effectiveness. Innovation in production re-design, automation, inculcated work habits are some of the proactive approaches to better manage resources and maximise the efficient use of energy.
Mun Australia is committed to continually improving, adapting and monitoring all aspects of our operations to create a sustainable environment. Through research and development, we aim to utilize and bring new innovations that will not only sustain business development, but also bring a positive impact to our environment for the well-being of our future generations.
