Sustainability
Highlights

Sustainability has been a key priority for most businesses in FY2020 as the world grapples with the fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic that affected every sector of the global economy. The unprecedented health crisis tested the resilience of companies, supply chains, and our collective commitment to communities and the environment.

Likewise, at Sedania, our focus was trained on ensuring business continuity amid the outbreak as the various levels of restrictions implemented under different levels of Movement Control Orders (“MCO”) forced non-essential businesses to shutter their premises on and off throughout the year. Restrictions on the interstate and inter-district travel were enforced alongside physical distancing measures and capacity cap on businesses’ operating premises as the Government tried to curb the spread of COVID-19.

 

Although we had planned on continuing our focus on enhancing our innovation capabilities, caring for the environment, and community empowerment in FY2020, those efforts were halted as we shifted our focus to address the disruptions to our business activities. Work from home arrangements have impacted the way that we conduct our product development, customer support, sales, and other activities.

 

We moved quickly to modify several of our business practices and operations to align with the new requirements under the COVID-19 emergency, working towards the best interests of our employees, customers, partners, suppliers, and other stakeholders.

UNITED NATIONS SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS

Sedania has expressed our commitment to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (“UN SDG”) in FY2019 in a bid to do our part to contribute to these global goals at the local level. We have also narrowed our focus of the UNSDGs to the following goals, continuing to make inroads despite the disruptions of FY2020:

We implemented Work-From-Home (“WFH”) protocols for our employees as an alternative temporary arrangement during this challenging period. Daily team video calls, interactions over chats and email, and frequent updates from HR and senior management have helped mitigate any feeling of isolation. During the period where working in office was allowed, we provided guidance on appropriate personal health, hygiene and safety practices while mandating social distancing on our premises.

We concentrated on ensuring full operational efficiency of our FinTech, IoT, GreenTech and TelcoTech product and services offering in an effort to keep communities and businesses socially connected in a physically distanced world. Thanks to the connectivity afforded by our services, business can continue operating efficiently with lesser impact on environment sustainability and the community.

 

However, due to the prohibition of large gatherings and the risks posed by the pandemic, our community engagement efforts have been shelved for the time being in the interest of public health and safety. We remain committed to supporting the needs of the community where we operate.

The goal of Green Technology is to protect our environment and conserve natural resources. Our GreenTech specifically focuses on products or services that improve corporate operational performance while reducing costs, energy consumption, waste, or negative effects on the environment.

 

In FY2020, despite the restricted access to buildings due to MCO/RMCO, we continued our energy efficiency (“EE”) project for Malaysia’s largest telecommunication corporation. We completed our installation of GreenTech Solutions in 4 data centre buildings and achieved an energy saving rate of 20%.

 

As of FY2020, our GreenTech performance is as follows:
