Awantec’s Climate Change Initiatives and Projects
At Awantec, we understand the urgency of addressing climate change and its impact on our environment and society. We believe that as a sustainable and responsible company, we have a role to play in reducing our carbon footprint and alleviating or avoiding the adverse impacts of greenhouse gases to make a positive difference in our environment and communities. Therefore, we are committed to align our action and disclosure as per recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosure (TCFD) in our annual report.
To fulfil our commitment in addressing climate change, we have embarked on the following initiatives:
Measuring and Reporting Carbon Footprint
As a supporter of TCFD and in line with the Paris Agreement's objective of limiting global warming to well below 2°C, we track and report our carbon consumption across all areas of our operations to identify where we can reduce, avoid the impact or improve our efficiency to set targets for reducing our emissions. By FY2023, Awantec further reinforces the practice by setting ambitious, science-based targets linked to each department's climate-related key performance indicators (KPIs).
Assessing Climate-Related Risks
We conduct a thorough climate change risk assessment based on a 2 degree scenario. This helps us identify risks across various aspects, including operations, expenses, investments, and debt for business and financial planning to remain resilient.
Setting Sustainability Goals
We have set sustainability goals that cover climate change, labour standards, human rights, community engagement, and corporate governance. By striving for sustainability, we aim to create a better future for everyone.
Implementing Decarbonization Strategies
To reduce our greenhouse gas emissions , we have developed specific strategies to decarbonize our operations. Through targeted programs and initiatives, we are working towards progressively reducing our carbon footprint and contributing to a cleaner, healthier world.
At Awantec, we are committed to making a difference in the fight against climate change.
Together, we can create a more sustainable world for generations to come.
Our Sustainability Governance
Our sustainability governance structure is established to represent and assist the Board of Directors (BOD) in meeting its fiduciary duty to oversee that ESG concerns are properly addressed in Awantec’s business strategy, risk and capital allocation.
Each member of the governance has specified roles and responsibilities in the development and implementation of sustainability initiatives, which then will be communicated to all employees in delivering genuine results and impacts.
