The Biji-biji Initiative is a social enterprise that aims to share progressive ideas with everyone. We champion sustainable living, reuse waste creatively and we love collaborative production. By using discarded materials, basic electronics and passive building techniques we aim to inspire our surrounding with fresh and fun approaches to sustainable living.
Our creations all come from our Open Workshop in Kuala Lumpur. If you would like to explore your ideas and collaborate with us, we have the space, tools and expertise to share with you!
As a social enterprise, we aim to involve as many people as we can in our project. The effort
to care for our world is a burden upon everyone’s shoulders after all. Each time you purchase
one of our products, you contribute points to our organisation. These points help us to provide
enterprising opportunities to more people and amplify the social impact we aspire to make.
We work with people from all over the world, whom all come with
different stories, skills and backgrounds. Diversity is inherent. This
revolving door of ideas and talents allow for a limitless dynamic of
ideas! Check out the profiles of our team members and help us
grow this movement.
We started off as an organisation that makes products from waste materials back in 2013. Today, we have grown our skills, talents, and machinery to provide a range of services, that we believe will define the future we live in.
At Biji-biji Initiative, we merge the sciences behind sustainability with our passion for design and art. Every project or product conceived at Biji-biji Initiative is a brainchild of our various different departments coming together and sharing their creative and technical knowledge.
From capturing the value of waste, to electronic systems and automation, educational workshops, renewable energy sources, engaging public events, online video content, to our inspiring builds and art installations. Each department has its unique role to play in inspiring sustainability.

Measuring our efforts and impact is an integral part of challenging ourselves to do more. Call it a self-audit if you like, but the best way to assess your performance is by measuring and quantifying your efforts.
By measuring the amount of waste we reduce, we get to highlight the impact each of our product creates and raise awareness with members of the public to be more accountable for their consumption. Below is a measure of the main waste materials that we use in an info-graphical sense.
In doing business, there are 12 Key Sustainability indicators that we use to measure ourselves, as detailed in our Governance Framework. These indicators are a measure of how we are performing, beyond just our Profit & Loss statement. It defines the things that we do differently from other organisations, how well we are doing to achieve them.
What you see here is just 6 out of the 12 that we measure, which can be shown in a graphical sense. The other 6 measurables are captured in our Sustainability Report. Do scroll over each of them to get the breakdown of the projects.
