Environment Responsibility

QL Group has incorporated environmental issues into its operations in order to reduce waste and emissions, maximize the efficiency and productivity of its resources and minimize practices that badly affect the country’s natural resources. 

Our Focus

GHG Emission

Human activities have resulted in the rapid rise in greenhouse gases. This will inevitably lead to an increase in global temperature. Therefore, QL started to track and monitor GHG Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions across business pillars.

Waste management

To address the pollution risk linked to chicken farming, QL employs a fermentation technology to convert manure into organic fertiliser.

Water Withdrawal

Malaysia’s tropical climate supplies us with an abundance of fresh water. However, we need to actively be cautious of our water usage. To be part of the solution, QL has started to track water withdrawal volume from all sources from FY2020 onwards so analysis can be conducted to reduce or reuse water.

Our Story

Solar Power System at QL Endau

In response to the initiatives introduced by the Ministry of Energy, Science, Technology, Environment and Climate Change (MESTECC) towards Green Technology Project, QL Endau has started the installation of Solar Power System since 2019, which consists a total of 4989 pieces photo-voltaic (PV) panel with peak capacity up to 1.79 Megawatts-peak (MWp). This green investment is supported by the improved concept of Net Energy Metering Scheme (NEM) and financially supported by the enhanced Green Technology Financing Scheme (GTFS 2.0). Not only will this project reduce electricity expenses in the long term, but most importantly, QL Endau can save electricity usage as an effort in reducing greenhouse gas emissions. 

FY2019-FY2020 Upgrading of Wastewater Treatment Plant

As a responsible corporate citizen, QL Foods Sdn Bhd ensures that all wastewater is properly treated before returning to the water cycle. Due to the development of new production lines, the volume of wastewater to be treated increased accordingly. Therefore, upgrading the Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) was the most critical project to QL Foods in FY2019. As a result, the capacity of WWTP has increased from 1200 m3/day to 2400 m3/day upon completion in FY2020.
