Sustainable Green Action Plans by PKT
Our Roadmap to a Sustainable Future
It has been 15 years of rethinking our business through the Sustainability lens since PKT’s 2008 transformation programme with our initial core focus on 4 CSR pillars namely – Community Development, Education & Skills Enhancement, Arts & Culture, Sports & Recreation.
In our recent bid to champion climate and environmental resilience, we have pledged to achieve Net-Zero Carbon Emissions by 2039 and strongly support the global clarion call in the race to net zero emissions. We remain steadfast in our commitment to lead the charge in the sustainability revolution as time is of the essence in achieving the SDGs by 2030.
Let us now continue our mission to make a positive impact in safeguarding our surrounding environment, communities and stakeholders, in the present and for generations to come. Together, we can save the world!

GREEN ACTION PLAN 02
Ensuring that all our warehouses are GBI Gold Certified.
Green building certification is applied to the entire life cycle of our buildings and warehouses from the planning and design, construction, operation, maintenance, renovation to eventual demolition phases.
the lighthouse : the first Green Building Index (GBI) Gold-certified warehouse in Malaysia
The Lighthouse, located in Shah Alam, Selangor has built-in solar panels to generate green energy. It is also equipped with energy-saving LED lighting systems, a rainwater harvesting system for general usage, translucent sheets and aluminum louvers to bring in natural daylight and improve airflow in the warehouses.
Solar Photovoltaic (PV) System
We have set up Solar Photovoltaic (PV) systems on our car park roofs and buildings to convert sunlight into electricity. This helps us save and use solar energy in our daily operations.
Rainwater Harvesting System
We have established a rainwater harvesting system at The Lighthouse, collecting rainwater to be utilised for general cleaning and watering our premises’ plants.
Translucent sheets have been placed on the warehouses to bring in natural daylight, brightening the area and reducing artificial lighting usage.
Natural ventilation has been produced in warehouses with numerous aluminum louvers, promoting indirect light and airflow. Combined with effective roof insulation, the indoor temperature remains cooler than outside during the day.
GREEN ACTION PLAN 03
Vehicle Electrification Programme
A comprehensive plan aimed at promoting and accelerating the adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) within our organisation.
Transition of company trucks and cars from traditional fossil fuel-powered to electric vehicles (EVs).
Promote staff adoption of EVs by installing charging stations within our premises.
