Environment & Climate Change

Our environmental stewardship is guided by the Company’s HSE Policy. Aspects that are material to us and our stakeholders include climate change, emissions to air, accidental spills, waste and water use. We monitor our performance for each aspect, and discuss our data throughout this section.

Climate Change
The imminent threat of climate change is forcing governments to work together to reduce carbon emissions, as well as to impose various regulations on businesses and industries across the globe. At the Paris Conference in 2015, the Malaysian Government pledged to reduce the nation’s carbon intensity per GDP to 45% below 2005 levels, by the end of the decade. PETRONAS Dagangan Berhad fully supports the Governments’ aspiration, duly recognising our responsibility as a corporate citizen to balance the issue of climate change with the challenge to sustainably ensure access to affordable and reliable energy.

Air Emission
Company launched the new PETRONAS Dynamic Diesel Euro 5 with Pro-Drive in 2017, a new-generation sulphur free Diesel which meets Euro 5 standards, while delivering superior fuel economy. With a higher cetane number, PETRONAS Dynamic Diesel Euro 5 with Pro-Drive improves combustion resulting in overall reduction in vehicular emissions of SOX and NOX, particulate matters and volatile organic compounds.

We have clear control systems to prevent operational spills, on both water and land, with particular emphasis on risk management, operations integrity and containment capabilities. Asset integrity and process safety are integral to the maintenance of our facilities and pipelines.

We are currently developing a waste recovery sourcing strategy for our Sabah operations to improve our scheduled waste management. This effort will increase the amount of scheduled waste recovered, and hence reduce the amount that needs to be treated and disposed of. In the future, we plan to extend this initiative across all PDB operations.

Water Use
We have reduced the amount of withdrawal throughout our operations by reusing water for LPG cylinder washing where appropriate, conducting piping inspection to check for leakages. In addition, we have also installed rainwater harvesting systems at all four terminals in the Sabah region.

Environmental Supply Chain
To address concern over the health and livelihood of communities and ecosystems associated with the production of palm oil, we have started to implement the policy of responsible sourcing of PME, one of the components of our biodiesel fuel, by only acquiring PME from sources that have been certified by the RSPO.
