BUILDING A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE
Sustainability is part and parcel of our business strategy. Our approach to sustainability recognises that meeting the expectations of our stakeholders is not only the right thing to do but also critical for the long-term success of IJM. Our sustainability governance framework, established in 2017, defines and guides us towards impact-focused targets.
Running a responsible business helps us attract and maintain our investors and top talents, grow our base of customers, participate in nation building alongside the government’s growth agenda and create brand affinity with our customers and the public. Continuous engagement with our stakeholders is important for our success.
Given the value of collaboration with various stakeholders, we also actively participate in industry association activities to learn, develop and contribute to a collective voice towards best practices for the industries we serve, continuously and successfully.
The IJM Group was founded on strong ethics and professionalism since inception in 1983. The Group has issued a number of company policies that represent the main points of reference for all people working for the Group.
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:
- Good Governance and Ethics
- Commitment to Quality
- Ensuring Customer Satisfaction
- Branding and Reputation
- Fostering Digitalisation and Innovation in Practice
- Data Privacy and Protection
- Responsible Supply Chain
