INTRODUCTION

2016 was a momentous year which saw sustainability gaining pre-eminence on the local and global agenda. Globally, 129 countries ratified the Paris Agreement, pledging their commitment to reduce their carbon emissions at national levels. Malaysia is no exception, setting a target to reduce its carbon emissions intensity by an ambitious 45% by the year 2030. Along with this commitment, Bursa Malaysia has also mandated sustainability reporting as part of its Main Market Listing Requirements starting from 2016 onwards.

We recognise that all businesses in Malaysia have a role in advancing development in a sustainable manner. This year, we continue to disclose our progress on our sustainability journey in this sustainability report. However, we have gone a step further to enhance our disclosures by conducting our first formal materiality assessment and preparing our report by incorporating some standard disclosures from the internationally recognised Global Reporting Initiative (“GRI”) G4 guideline. This report is primarily focused on Resorts World Genting, with disclosures on our overseas operations on pages 47 to 59.

In 2016, we launched a new sustainability logo and tagline called “Genting Green Generation”, to reaffirm our commitment to achieve the highest levels of sustainability in everything that we do, and to cultivate a generation that will make a difference towards sustainable development in the present and the future. Guided by our four sustainability pillars – environment, workplace, community and governance – we have made strides in various sustainability efforts this year.
We continued our efforts in conserving the 130 million year-old virgin rainforest around Resorts World Genting, and the bird and animal species that inhabit the forest. We reduced our energy consumption and carbon emissions by 2.5 million kWh and over 0.432 million metric tonnes of CO2 equivalent of carbon footprint reduction respectively.

We achieved more than 21% reduction in the number of reported workplace accidents. Likewise, we ensured customer safety and security by deploying security personnel across our resort, safeguarding customer data privacy, and maintaining slope safety.

In our efforts to develop the local community, we contributed more than RM4 million to 130 beneficiary organisations, touching over 15,000 lives in 2016. We believe that being in close proximity with the local community means an opportunity for us to make a difference in their lives.

All these achievements and contributions would not have been possible without your support. We would like to take this opportunity to thank our stakeholders who have been with us since the beginning of our sustainability journey, and we look forward to cultivating the Genting Green Generation in the coming years.
