Water Use and Reduction
Yoma Strategic acknowledges its responsibility to preserve the quality of the land, water and air and actively work to protect and conserve the land it owns and operates on. The Group’s companies are improving the data collection methodologies relating to water usage. We are also implementing water saving measures across our various business sectors, as well as monitoring our water consumption patterns to identify opportunities for resource conservation. Understanding that safe and readily available water is very important for the community and public health, Yoma Group has assisted in bringing clean water to the people of the Mandat village.
Waste and Effluent
Yoma Strategic is raising awareness on reducing use of single use plastics and the importance of recycling to reduce items being sent to landfill. In addition to implementing guidelines in procurement practices to substantially reduce waste generation through prevention, reduction, recycling and reuse, the Group also advocates for the use of reusable bottles or jars. The Group has been part of the “Refill Not Landfill” campaign since 2018.
The Group’s commitment to caring for the environment and employees play an instrumental role in being part of the collective effort to minimise waste generation, all the employees across all business entities are provided with reusable water bottles, mugs and cups. To help reduce the amount of waste going to landfill, Pun Hlaing Estate has also started to compost organic waste which is later used for landscaping and residential projects.
