PTP Sustainability Journey

Port of Tanjung Pelepas has been driven by a sense of purpose for almost two decades. Our effort in sustainability is built on various initiatives we have put in place to strengthen values and create positive impacts for people and the planet.

With the completion of our Sustainability Framework in 2022, we embarked on a voyage to transform into one of the world's smartest green port. The framework and its targets guided us to deliver sustainable value by integrating Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) commitments into our core business in a robust and holistic manner corresponding to the applicable United Nation Sustainable Development Goals (“UNSDG”).

Today, sustainability is an integral element in our business strategy. This means that sustainability is embedded into everything that we do - from how we manage our business, to how we operate as a terminal operator and to how we support and contribute to the societal development objectives of the country.


Chairman’s Message

Global macro trends are shaping business performance, and businesses must stay ahead of the curve to stay competitive. As Malaysia’s busiest transshipment hub, Port of Tanjung Pelepas (PTP) is committed to integrating sustainable practices throughout the organization, executing well-defined frameworks and strategies to advance its Environmental, Social and, Governance (ESG) agenda.

In 2021, PTP established the baseline and development of an ESG Framework and Strategies, with the aim to transform PTP into a sustainable port. The framework enables the organization to systematically demonstrate value creation, guide appropriate decision-making and strategic planning, and implement better management programs for employees and surrounding communities. In addition, it also establishes efficient stakeholder engagement, and drive appropriate risk management and mitigation measures.

Today, sustainability is embedded in everything we do, from business management to terminal operations and contributing to societal development objectives. Despite looming global economic recession, PTP will continue to prioritize ESG, viewing it as an opportunity rather than a challenge.

Moving forward, we will continue to regularly realign and reassess our ESG goals and strategy to meet stakeholders’ expectations. We will also track global and local ESG trends, risks, and opportunities to build investor trust, brand reputation, and talent retention and attraction through ESG reporting and risk assessment.

With the commitment from all parties, PTP can build greater partnerships in the long run as part of our collaborative efforts to achieve shared ESG objectives and targets.

“PTP will continue to prioritise ESG.”

CEO’s Message

At Port of Tanjung Pelepas (PTP), we recognize the impact we can create and contribute to building a sustainable future for all. Our Environmental, Social, Governance (ESG) agenda is ambitious. In terms of strategy, ESG is already a key point of differentiation for PTP in comparison to our peers in the region.

Although we have only just begun, it has been busy for us thus far. We became a member of the United Nations Global Compact Malaysia Brunei (UNGCMYB), affirming our commitment in creating a sustainable future together with all our strategic partners and stakeholders. Beginning 2022, we have also embarked on embedding ESG in our Key Performance Indicators (KPI) for the first time. We are proud to share all the KPI targets for the year were achieved successfully, and we will work harder to strive for the upcoming years.

On international platform, we worked with the Australian Government on Partnerships for Infrastructure (P4I) to conduct studies on green bunkering hubs. With the International Maritime Organization (IMO) on Green Voyage 2050, we developed a feasibility study on green boats. In addition, we have also created our first inventory of greenhouse emissions and are validating our decarbonization roadmap.

From the time our sustainability committee was established, we have made significant progress in sustainable development over a short period of time, but we believe that there is a lot more we can do. In the future, we want to further expand our role as a leader in corporate responsibility and sustainability and become a benchmark company for responsible business.

It has been an exciting journey so far and we know that with the strong support of our employees and other important stakeholders, we can build a better world for the next generation.

“Together towards a sustainable future”
