OUR KEY FOCUS AREAS
Given the limited nature of most resources, JGSHI is shifting to a circular mindset. This shift means managing key materials and water in a way that ensures they are used efficiently. It also means handling waste in a responsible manner and being able to extract new opportunities to acquire value from by-products. As a leading conglomerate, JGSHI and its subsidiaries also take time to reach out to the community to extend help with waste management, as a shared responsibility. In doing so, JGS and its subsidiaries comply with laws and regulations and also ensure that it is always moving in the right direction.
Efficient Resource Use
Finding efficient ways to use materials not only leads to a reduction in environmental impact, but also translates into cost savings and a longer-lasting supply of raw materials for JGSHI. Being able to create more with less and deliver larger value with lesser input is an important driver behind business operations.
Responsible Waste Management
JGSHI recognizes the growing concern on marine litter brought about by improper management of solid waste. At JGSHI, our goal is to minimize our contribution to this problem and ensure that the waste we generate is properly managed. Subsidiaries focus on reducing, recycling, and reusing as well as disposing of waste in accordance with regulatory requirements.
From Waste to Resources
Aside from improving resource efficiency and managing waste, JGSHI and its subsidiaries are also exploring innovative ways of increasing circularity within their operations. In doing so, the company is able to create new business models out of extending the lifetime of resources while mitigating environmental risks associated with waste. For one subsidiary, URC, increasing circularity means repurposing and reincorporating waste materials back into its value chain.
For JGSHI, compliance with environmental laws is non-negotiable. Environmental compliance underpins all of JGSHI’s efforts in resource and waste management, water conservation, and initiatives towards circular economy. All allegations are comprehensively examined and negotiated by a dedicated compliance unit within each business unit wherein necessary action points are employed at each stage of the examination. Regular monitoring and proper maintenance of facilities are practiced within the business units to make sure all aspects of operations are conforming to regulatory laws and standards.
