OUR SUSTAINABILITY COMMITMENT

We have been steadfast and committed to our progress in the journey to sustainability. Our journey began when we started becoming more accountable as a manufacturing entity, and sought to mitigate our impact on the community and environment. It has progressed since as an integral part of MSM’s business philosophy and corporate culture. Today, as the leading sugar refiner and brand ambassador for Malaysia, we infuse our thoughts and actions in aspiration to achieve excellence in sustainability by integrating sustainable practices into every business activity in line with the Group’s vision and core values.

This year, we highlight the strides we have made towards achieving sustainable development, even as we face the challenges brought upon by the COVID-19 pandemic head-on. MSM Group’s Sustainability Policy serves to facilitate our commitment and achievement to conduct business responsibly through the integration of Economic, Environmental, and Social (“EES”) considerations throughout our business process. Our sustainability leadership is spearheaded by the Audit, Governance & Risk Committee and driven by our Group Chief Operating Officer (“CEO”).

MSM Sugar Refinery (Johor) Sdn. Bhd. (MSM Johor), a subsidiary of MSM Malaysia Holdings Berhad (MSM) operates MSM’s new sugar refinery based in Tanjung Langsat, Johor which is set to be the largest standalone sugar refinery in Malaysia. Erected on a 50.63 acre land plot, the integrated complex is under development for Phase 1 - to build and operate a 3,000 tonnes per day of refined sugar output (RSO) contributing of up to 1 million MT on the Group’s annual production capacity. This is set to be fully commissioned by mid year of 2018. Upon increase in demand, expansion of Phase 2 shall commence by 2025. The combined annual production capacity of Phase 1 and Phase 2 is capable for up to an astounding 2 million MT, strengthening MSM’s position as one of the leading refined sugar producer in the region. With an investment of approximately USD $259 million for the development of Phase 1, this magnifies the Group’s confidence to showcase its ability towards MSM’s 53 years of talented expertise and experience in sugar refining and skilled management. Upon completion and full commissioning of MSM Johor, the total group production capacity will increase of up to 3.25 million MT per annum. One of MSM Johor’s salient point enables capacity building which translates to competitive pricing on end products. This allows MSM to foray into neighbouring countries, further strengthen the Group’s domestic market share and transform Malaysia into a regional hub for high quality refined sugar. Significantly, MSM Johor is seen to be a key growth driver for MSM Group to realize its mission in becoming one of the top 10 global sugar player by 2020.
