Corporate Social Responsibility

We view our corporate social responsibility initiatives as both a responsibility and a competitive advantage. We recognise our obligations to our employees, business partners and the communities in which we operate, and are committed to achieving long-term mutually sustainable relationships with our stakeholders.

Some of our initiatives include:

Sustainable wood sourcing

We strive to reduce the environmental impact of our manufacturing operations by using more materials from sustainable sources, such as rubberwood from rubber trees on designated plantation land that are due for replacement having gone past their optimal latex-producing cycle, as well as using recycled wood such as compressed moulded wood manufactured from waste wood chips.

Recycling of wood waste

We recycle our wood waste as feedstock for our factory boiler to produce heat required for our production process. For example, the steam generated contributes to more than 50% of the heating requirements for our spray painting process.

Usage of environmentally-friendly materials

We are committed to the responsible use and protection of the natural environment by using materials for our production process which are environmentally-friendly. This includes water-based paint, California Air Resources Board Phase 2 (CARB Phase 2)-compliant raw materials and lead-content-free coating materials.

Giving back to the community

We regularly support various organisations within our community. We have made donations and held fundraising events in support of the local schools and charity bodies, some of which is applied towards construction of school buildings. We also encourage our various stakeholders such as employees, suppliers and subcontractors to participate in blood donation events which we hold in conjunction with the local general hospital annually.
