Our approach

Sustainability is an integral part of IJM's business philosophy and corporate culture. Our embrace of good sustainability stems from our aspiration to deliver sustainable value and improvements to society, over the long term, by employing best practices in our key roles as:

1. A harbour for capital and enterprise in the marketplace

2. A nurturer of the environment

3. A developer of communities

4. A provider of opportunities at the workplace

Sustainability Pillars

The IJM Group Charter guides us in our tireless efforts to be a responsible corporate citizen, to protect and nurture the environment, to be a positive strength in our communities, and to ensure our workplaces are safe, respectful and empowering. The values enshrined in our Charter stress on sustainability, and have consistently given rise to divisional-level initiatives over the years. Meanwhile, we continually advance the means by which we measure and report on the progress we make on our sustainability journey. In our adoption of these best practices, we are guided by four main pillars:


  • Code of Ethics and Conduct
  • Corporate Governance and Compliance
  • Engaging Stakeholders
  • Ensuring Customer Satisfaction
  • Supply Chain Management


  • Preventing Pollution
  • Reducing and Managing Waste
