With continuous investments into machine advancement and processing technology, coupled with the renewable energy efficiency contribution, BPPLAS has been focusing on sustainable developments in improved product design and innovative solutions. Meanwhile, we engage and work closely with trusted and reliable suppliers and logistic partners worldwide to ensure efficient supply chain of good quality resins to our production.

We are pursuing towards zero accidents, zero fatalities goal, and to reduce the number of lost man-days rate within our workplace.
In addition, since the outbreak of COVID-19 in Malaysia in 2020, we have implemented strict SOPs with preventive measures and safety protocols to to ensure the health and safety of our people.
Conservation & Renewable Sources
Our focus in energy efficiency management is to conserve and reduce consumption of energy throughout our production and processes.
We constantly monitor the use and installation of heaters, chillers and compressors for the current or additional machinery and equipment, to ensure optimum levels of energy consumptions and consistent effectiveness of equipment.
In September 2019, we installed the solar panels on the roof of our factories to substitute partial of our energy consumption towards green energy (“renewable energy”) and reduce total energy consumption. This is in line with the objective to play our part in climate change mitigation by reducing greenhouse gas emission in the atmosphere.

We have an effective recycle management system to reprocess and reclaim our internally generated plastics wastes, rejects and scraps. Further, the recycled materials can be reused as raw materials for suitable industrial packaging film application and consequently reduce consumption of virgin raw materials. We are committed to minimise our wastes, rejects and scraps footprint and also in support of the concept of circular economy.

We have always been cognisant of our role in supporting the development of the communities in which we operate. We believe that the welfare of local communities is crucial to the continued success of our business.
Since 2010, every year, we have been consistently organizing annual blood donation campaigns, doing our part to support the National Blood Bank.
In addition, over the years, our community involvement ranged from providing industrial training (internship) programmes, financial donations to charities, as well as donations of recycle bins in line with our objective to educate and encourage recycling.
