Mydin Mohamed Holdings is considering installing solar panels at 15 of its outlets across Malaysia.
The latest plan is part of Mydin’s newly launched Mydin Prihatin #forfuture initiative. For this, it will work together with GSPARX Sdn Bhd, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tenaga Nasional Berhad.
This program aims to encourage the adoption of environmentally conscious, socially responsible, and well-governed (ESG) practices within its organization, among its customers, and across the industry, the company stated.
The solar panels in 15 outlets are estimated to reduce carbon emissions by 20,643 metric tonnes annually, the company stated. The installation is expected to support the Malaysian government in achieving its goals for a clean and greener future.
As per local reports, Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad, the Minister of Natural Resources, Environment, and Climate Change, appreciated Mydin’s efforts in contributing to a sustainable future for Malaysia.
“Mydin’s commitment should serve as an example for other organizations, encouraging them to prioritize ESG practices for a better future for generations to come,” he was quoted.
The installation of solar panels is likely to be completed by 2025.
Mydin has set a goal to achieve a 15% reduction in energy consumption and carbon emissions by 2030.
