Environmentally Protective

OUR ENVIRONMENT
  • ENERGY MANAGEMENT
  • MATERIALS (RESOURCE CONSUMPTION)

We are committed to resource conservation and climate change whilst appropriately incorporating recommendations by the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) especially in our resource management strategies.

In 2018, we launched Tune Protect’s Climate Action initiative to “Create Awareness and Enable Social Change“. We initiated weekly Earth Hour Fridays where all non-essential lights and plug points to be switched off from 12pm to 1pm. The introduction of programme timers for water boilers, LED bulbs, lighting floor plan & signage as well as reduced printing have led us to a downward trend in total electricity consumption. We succeeded in accumulatively saving more than 80,000 kWh in electricity over the past three years, which is equivalent to a reduction of more than 55 tonnes of CO2 emissions.

In addition, we led our Wisma Tune building tenants and affiliates with a “GoGreen” initiative that involved the participation from all tenants in the nine floors of the building. Among the “GoGreen” initiatives include several recycling campaigns, a Pre-Loved Charity Bazaar and energy conservation competitions.

We are committed to operating our business in an environmentally friendly manner, in support of climate change. We play our part in reducing our impact on the environment by automating processes and carefully monitoring and managing the resources we consume, as we progress in our digitisation journey.

In 2018, we launched Tune Protect’s Climate Action initiative to “Create Awareness and Enable Social Change”. Since then, we have held variety of initiatives which include:

  • our recycling efforts with recycling bins stationed on all floors of the Company;
  • collection of fluorescent bulbs and lamps, used batteries, old mobile phones and power banks which we send to licensed collection centres;
  • we encourage the use of reusable containers, cups and utensils for our office events and functions.

We encourage our customers to submit their claims for selected policies entirely online. While we continue to distribute our products in both physical and digital formats, we provide insurance premium rebates for customers who purchased our products via online platforms. Aligned with our digitisation strategy, we will continuously explore and incorporate innovative solutions into our processes to further reduce paper consumption.
