IHA 2013 World Congress: Sarawak Energy: Incorporating Sustainability into Business Practice


Published on

Mr Mohammed Irwan bin Aman, Sustainability Manager, Sarawak Energy Berhad (SEB)

SESSION 7: Incorporating sustainability into business practice
The expectations on organisations involved in hydropower have increased dramatically, both at the corporate and project levels. The scope of accountability has grown from the technical, legal, financial and regulatory, to broader developmental responsibilities and greater disclosure. It is a strategic challenge to adjust business and information systems to incorporate sustainability into assessment, planning, operations, reporting and reviewing. An international panel will discuss this challenge from a range of perspectives.
