Protecting the Environment for Future Generations

As reflected in PDB’s policy on Health, Safety and Environment, and guided by the PETRONAS Corporate Sustainability Framework, PDB is committed towards protecting the environment by eliminating or reducing the impacts and risks of pollution from emissions and wastes from our activities, and through efficient use of energy, water and other resources.
An example of this commitment is demonstrated through our community-based initiative – the ‘Water for Life’ programme.
“Water for Life” Programme
This grassroots programme was initiated to emphasise the importance of preserving water for the future and to remind the public that sustainable water conservation can only take place if communities and individuals come together and play a role to help save this precious resource.
The Programme, initiated in partnership with the Malaysian Nature Society (MNS), aims to raise awareness amongst the local communities, including students, on the perils of water depletion.

This grassroots programme was initiated to emphasise the importance of preserving water for the future and to remind the public that sustainable water conservation can only take place if communities and individuals come together and play a role to help save this precious resource.

Among the ‘Water for Life’ activities completed include the installation of a rain water harvesting system in SMK Seri Selayang and the creation of activities to educate the students as well as the surrounding communities on the importance of water conservation.

Environmental Conservation

In addition, as part of the Programme, PDB also worked hand-in-hand with the local community in Kampung Jemeri situated in Rompin, Pahang and Kampung Ulu Geroh, Gopeng, Perak to provide uninterrupted water supply to the Orang Asli families residing in the two villages. Towards this cause, close to 60 PDB management and employees joined hands with members of the local community to install a rainwater harvesting system that consists of water tanks, as well as piping and filtering system in the villages.

Prior to this, the Company has installed the rain water harvesting system at its PETRONAS Twin Stations which was launched on 5 December 2012.


The people of Kampung Ulu Geroh were delighted to have a fresh supply of water flowing into their village. Believe us - there was nothing but bright smiles the whole time we were there!
