Sustainability

Protasco Berhad is committed to preserving the interests of its stakeholders through sustainability practices. We subscribe to the principles of sustainable development and continuously seek to identify opportunities to maximise positive impacts of our activities the stakeholders.

EMPLOYEES

Talents and employee’s skill sets are our main assets. The Group’s policy is to attract, retain and motivate employees. We continue to encourage their contribution and development by providing appropriate career paths, potential succession planning and internal recognition. These programmes have been developed for both technical and non-technical staff.

Employees are provided with learning and development opportunities to fulfill their potential. These development opportunities are structured to align with the organisational needs and objectives and to assist employees’ career aspirations. At various subsidiaries of the Group, budgets are allocated for staff activities of their own choice. This way, camaraderie between colleagues is encouraged.

The Protasco Sports and Welfare Club organises sporting, recreational and charitable activities for its members. Occasionally, health checks are held to promote staff wellness.

Knowledge sharing has always been in the Group’s work culture. Sharing sessions, public lectures as well as skills programmes and language classes are occasionally conducted for the employees.

The Protasco i-Portal, a platform to access and share information and communicate among employees, is continuously being enhanced.

COMMUNITY

We seek to improve the role we play in the community for the betterment of society. We continuously try to integrate the community needs into our business operations.

With our strength in various aspects of infrastructure, we have pledged a strong commitment towards providing education to the community through establishment of the Infrastructure University Kuala Lumpur (IUKL). IUKL continues to improve the quality of academic programmes offered to its customers. Excellent students are rewarded with fee waiver on tuition fees for the following semester. This practice had been put in place as the University understands that with recognition and reward for hard work, students will be encouraged to strive even harder for personal success.

For the less fortunate, regular visits to welfare homes for the young and elderly are organised. The Group takes the opportunity to provide them with contributions in cash and kind to alleviate some of their hardship. On an annual basis, a selected orphanage will be treated to the Group’s breaking of fast feast held during the month of Ramadhan.

ENVIRONMENT

Commitment towards preserving the environment has been weaved into the Protasco Group’s business practices from the beginning of its establishment. This is apparent from the very nature of its business as an engineering solutions provider, particularly in road maintenance and construction; geotechnical services and property development. In road maintenance, the Group advocates environmentally sustainable practices by utilising the Cold-In-Place-Recycling Technology (CIPR). Its geotechnical services particularly in the treatment of slopes, encourage the use of environment friendly techniques such as the soil confinement systems that promotes the growth of vegetation, therefore keeping a balance in the ecosystem.
