Apical’s Sustainability Report 2017 has now been published! In this second sustainability report, we describe how we innovate, forge collective understanding, harness synergies and accelerate progress by working hand-in-hand with our network of stakeholders.
Aligned with the current Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards, this report shows how our sustainability Anchor Programmes such as Traceability Outreach Programme (TOP), Mill Prioritisation Process (MPP) and Priority Supplier Engagement Programme (PSEP) help achieve our goals in key areas such as traceability, supplier engagement and capacity building.
In the report, we also state our support for the UN Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs), indicating our plans to undertake in-depth studies to identify which goals we can continue or begin contributing to, given our commitment to do what is good for the community, country, climate, customer and company.
In his statement, Apical president Dato’ Yeo How shares, “Looking back at this year, we are very proud of the progress we have made and the lives we have touched through our various initiatives. In particular, through our Anchor Programmes, Apical’s flagship approach to supplier engagement, we have seen the impacts transparency and sincere engagement can achieve first-hand.”
