IOI Properties Group Berhad (“IOIPG”) is committed towards upholding the principles of sustainability and corporate responsibility (“CR”) values in its developments, and delivering value creation to its customers by:
In line with this policy, IOIPG sources construction materials and products locally which reduce transportation cost and air pollution, adopts design features which harness natural light, encourage cross and natural ventilation, reduces dependency on mechanical systems which consume energy and incorporate energy management systems to help reduce overall energy consumption and carbon footprints.
The following sustainability aims and features are incorporated within IOIPG’s developments:
Commercial High-Rise Buildings
Other than incorporating environmentally-neutral design principles and fittings in IOIPG’s buildings, the same considerations are given to projects which are mainly non-building based. For example, in the course of refurbishing its Palm Garden Golf Club, rigorous considerations were given to minimise impact to the existing environment. More than 85% of the trees (or 2,191 trees) at the old site were transplanted to the new site and the trees achieved a remarkable survival rate of more than 95%. Besides that, more than 80% of the planting material requirements for the course was sourced, propagated and/or transplanted at site. The onsite propagation helped to reduce fuel consumption and air pollution which would otherwise have resulted from the need to buy and transport these materials over long distances.
IOIPG’s CR efforts extend to supporting philanthropic and various community initiatives undertaken by Yayasan Tan Sri Lee Shin Cheng, a charitable foundation established in 1994 by the founder of IOI Group, Tan Sri Lee Shin Cheng. Volunteerism runs in the core of IOIPG where every employee is strongly encouraged to play a defining part in making a difference in the community.
