Biodiversity of Birds in Canon Opto Malaysia Sdn. Bhd

Birds are one of the most visible species groups that involved in biodiversity in urban places. They keep the climate stable, oxygenate air and transform pollutants into nutrients. As birds are high up in the food chain, they are also good indicators of the general state of our biodiversity. They are sensitive to changes in the environment, and are one of the key indicators of the health of the ecosystem. In conjunction with conservation of our biodiversity, we shared pictures of wild birds, sighted in Canon Opto Malaysia Sdn. Bhd as a symbols of good environment .

Environment Improvement Activities

a) CO2 reduction from electricity and diesel usage
In line with COM environment policy, activities have been carried out to reduce CO2 emission and reduction of diesel consumption. CO2 emission is determined by calculation based on monthly electricity consumption. Energy saving equipment and fluorescent tubes which consume less energy has been implemented in COM. Heat insulation membrane has been installed on the roof top in order to reduce heat transmission into building which subsequently will reduce the electricity consumption. CO2 emission will be closely monitored and step been regularly taken to reduce the electricity consumption such as replacing the old machinery with new machinery equipped with inverters.


b) Waste Reduction Activity
One of the environmental targets at COM is to reduce general waste generation. Carbonizer and sludge dryer machines were used to reduce the weight and volume of general waste generation. The carbonizer machine use heating element to transform the general waste into carbonized form. This process does not emit any hazardous gaseous. Sludge dryer machines also applied the same methodology of heating process to reduce the weight and volume of wastewater sludge generated from wastewater treatment plant. Recycling plastic tray also been implemented to reduce the waste generation.

Sludge dryer machine
Sludge dryer machine use to treat sludge waste from wastewater treatment plant.


c) Chemical Emission Reduction
The other environment activity is to reduce chemical emission. This activity includes studying and replacing new chemical that have less negative impact to the environment. Emission also been reduced by using recycling machine and prolong the chemical usage.


d) Water Reduction Activity
In order to preserve the natural resources, “Water Recovery Plant” was installed to treat waste water from production and use by cooling tower in air conditioning system. Campaign and exhibition on water usage also been done to reduce water consumption.
