Why is this Important?

EGCO Group is aware of the impacts of waste created from power plants which may significantly impact the environment and communities in the organization’s value chain. Therefore, EGCO Group has determined waste management guidelines for proper waste disposal which are in compliance with relevant standards, requirements, and regulations. Operational eco-efficiency is also improved on a regular basis in order to ensure that resources are utilized to the fullest benefit with minimal waste created.

Waste Management Target

2022 Targets

Reduce the portion of waste directed to disposal (e.g., landfill and incineration without heat recovery) to less than 10% of total non-hazardous waste (including ash) generated

2022 Performance

The portion of waste directed to disposal (e.g., landfill and incineration without heat recovery) is approximately 6.87% of total non-hazardous waste (including ash) generated

[GRI 306-1 (2020), 306-2 (2020)]

EGCO Group follows 3Rs Waste Management Principle namely Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle to minimize the amount of hazardous and non-hazardous wastes generated from the organization’s operation to a minimum. Wastes are managed systematically through segregation, collection, transportation, and disposal. Data are collected and reported through the waste management data collection system.

3Rs Principle of Waste Management
Reduce usage
(think before use)

Reducing current usage or optimizing the number of materials used means minimizing the amount of waste generation e.g. using handkerchiefs instead of tissue paper.

(use again and again)

This is the use of resources to their full potential by reusing various materials and tools. Some materials may be reused many times e.g. water bottle can be reused as a flower vase.


Wastes segregated by type can be returned to the production process of each particular type of waste.

EGCO Group aims to minimize the amount of waste going to landfills and maintain a continuous waste management project. For example, waste composting to minimize chemical fertilizer usage at Khanom Power Plant, cooperation with communities to encourage the reuse of waste at Quezon Power Plant to reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill which in turn increase recycling and using fly ash from the power plant as a raw material for cement production or road reclamation.

EGCO Group is determined to efficiently minimize environmental and social impacts that arose from the production process. A review of waste management approaches and waste treatment and disposal contractors auditing have been conducted on a regular basis to ensure that all operational processes are in compliance with relevant regulations and requirements.

In addition, office waste has been managed under EGCO ECOSYSTEM Project to raise awareness of the impacts of waste. Company’s executives and staff are encouraged to have the mindset of volunteering in accordance with the 5th corporate core value “Stakeholder Concerns”. Staff from various organizations voluntarily participate in waste segregation programs and increase the reuse of resources to their maximum potential.
