                                              S P Setia recently started tracking the consumption of our internal processes, and the data
                                              for 2016 will serve as a baseline for future benchmarking purposes. We are committed
                                              to reducing our consumption of water and electricity. A number of initiatives have been
                                              identified in 2017 towards this end.
