What is ESG?

ESG stands for environmental, social and governance. It is an evaluation of a firm’s collective conscientiousness for social and environmental factors. As ESG increasingly becomes top of mind for stakeholders, it is essential for PEGH to consider the global nuances that drive focus region by region.

Environmental

We have a responsibility to preserve the beauty of nature for future generations. Our approach to environmental sustainability focuses on measurable operational interventions to reduce resource usage across our portfolio and investments in large-scale renewable energy opportunities around the world.

Investing In Green Project

Investing In Green Projects

Green projects aim to contribute to one or more of the 5 environmental objectives: Climate Change Mitigation, Climate Change Adaptation, Natural Resource Conservation, Biodiversity Conservation, and Pollution Prevention and Control. We find great interest in investing in green projects as they are protecting our mother nature. One of our subsidiaries, PEG Synergy, is currently working on a large-scale solar panel installations project. We understand that heavy reliance on fossil fuels should be stop and we should switch to renewable energy to preserve natural resources.

Donating Medical Supplies To Our Frontliners

Covid-19 pandemic has resulted in a high surge demand for personal protective equipment (PPE) and related medical supplies. To support our country’s frontliners, we decided to donate to medical supplies. In April 2020, 200 sets of PPEs and 50,000 face masks were donated to our frontliners. We would also like to thank our frontliners for their sacrifices and efforts to make our country safe.

Giveaway Raya Special Hampers For The Disadvantaged

Hari Raya Aidilfitri is one of the most important festivals as it carries the celebration of the end of Ramadan. However, not many are able to enjoy the celebration, such as the disadvantaged. During the recent Hari Raya celebration, we took the opportunity to have a giveaway for our Muslims community. We would like to send our appreciation to Light-Up Puchong Charity Organization for helping us with the distribution and wishing every Malaysian Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri and happy holidays.

Organizing Charity Bazaar For Local Community

In our country, there are many communities that are underprivileged due to many reasons. There are misfortune families and single-parent families that need support from all of us. In light of Chinese New Year, our company had the opportunity to organize an event in order to bring love, joy and care to the underprivileged community. We would like to thank the local Christian community for partnering with us to deliver love, peace and happiness to Taman Tasik Raub.

Social Impact X Social Enterprise

Social enterprise is defined as a business that has specific social objectives that serve its primary purpose. They seek to maximize benefits to society and the environment. Indeed, social enterprises have gained notorious support across the globe as we cherish social and environmental well-being.

In the past, we have invested in several social enterprises who are able to create social impact in their businesses. These companies are able to combine commercial and social goals and find the perfect balance between both. Our company loves to explore more social enterprises as they are innovative and have massive potential in delivering values to all stakeholders.

Give Please

GivePlease is a leading payment technology company under Ideaqu, which is one of our investee companies. GivePlease provides seamless donation methods with a touch of fingertip. Consumers were unable to give donations digitally and charities were unable to receive donations as they lack digital platforms. After identifying the gap between donors and charities, GivePlease was able to transform the way of giving and introduced an innovative donation platform to our world.
