Sustainable Development – A Gift to Our Future Generations
Malaysia’s 1st Integrated Waste Management Centre Malaysia in its drive to be a fully industrialised nation by 2020 has seen an explosive growth in industrial production and manufacturing. This has lead to the accumulation and accelerated output of toxic and hazardous waste. In many parts of the world, the poor management and disposal of these wastes have led to environmental degradation and irreversible damage to the ecosystem. That is why sustainable development, in the sense of balancing development with the proper and safe disposal of toxic and hazardous waste, is the only choice facing us today. Indeed, it is our gift to our future generations. Companies have realised that pollution is bad for business and that sound environmental management can protect and enhance the value of physical assets as well as corporate reputations. Following the hierarchy of reduce, reuse and recycle; we are able to develop practical waste management strategies to meet the needs of large and small generators alike. Innovative management methods are designed to satisfy all regulatory requirements, to protect and facilitate your present activities, as well as your future operations.
