This policy is created for BCB Berhad (“the Company”) and its subsidiaries (“the Group”). This policy complements the Company’s existing Corporate Social Responsibility policy. Sustainability covers ethical business practices, a care for social and environmental issues as well as good corporate governance practices.


The principle objective of this policy is to:

  • Integrate the principles of sustainability into the Group’s strategies, plans, decision making, policies and procedures;
  • Promote sustainable practices; and
  • Create a culture of sustainability within the Group and community

Health and Safety

Even though Malaysia has entered in the Transition to Endemic Phase for COVID-19, the Group are adhering to government instructions and implement applicable standard operating procedures at the construction side. The Group provides COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test Kit to employees for fortnightly testing and sanitize the office and construction site to ensure the BCB’s environment is germ-free. 

Employee Management 

The Group continues to maintain a diverse and inclusive workforce. The composition of workforce by race, age and gender in FY2022 is represented in the following diagram. 

Community Relations and Engagements 

The Group believes in giving back to the community and employees are the main driving force of its business.  

  • Employees 

The welfare, health, and safety of the employees at the workplace is the Group’s top priority. Other than minor cuts and bruises, no mishap has been reported at the Group’s project sites and business premises during this reporting period. 

  • Community 

Between the months of August and September 2022, the Company had provided assistances to Majlis Perbandaran Batu Pahat to clear overgrow scrubs and bushes and debris at Tapak Pasar Semantara, Jalan Shahbandar, Batu Pahat, Johor. The Company also repaired and repainted the dilapdated public toilets too. 

The Group made a total of RM251,000 donations and sponsorship to various schools and charitable causes for cultural and social welfare activities. 

Waste Management 

The Group manages the waste from operation to create as little negative impact to the environment as much as possible, through monitoring of on-site waste management, and Group-wide recycling. At construction site, contractors and suppliers are reminded to be mindful of their waste management. Not only that, the Group also ensures the compliances to the Environmental Quality Act 1974. The Group has maintained its position as a law-abiding organization thus far and will continue strive to always be aware of our responsibilities to safeguard the environment. 

Water Management  

As a way to use water efficiently and reduce wastage, the Group has successfully implemented the water harvesting system for its project namely Versis in Batu Pahat. With this system, waters are collected and recycled for irrigation purpose as well as for landscape usage.  

Above that, the Group also designs its properties with Duo-way sanitary flushing systems for its project Phase 2 Broadleaf at Kota Kemuning, Selangor that helps to reduce excessive water usage. The systems not only conserve water, in turn will also potentially reduce the water bill charges payable by the home owners. 


Corporate Governance and Code of Ethics and Conduct 

Adhering the laws and regulations outlined by the government, the Group has been adopting the Malaysia Code of Corporate Governance 2017 (“MCCG”) to maintain our corporate accountability and ethical practices sustainably.
