The best respite for a hot, sticky day may come in two forms: an iced lolly, or a breezy air-conditioned room. Between the two, the latter is unfortunately not too great for our environment as it emits high levels of carbon dioxide (Co2). In addressing the environmental impacts, Sunway via its construction arm, Sunway Construction Group Berhad (SunCon) joined forces with ENGIE Southeast Asia (ENGIE SEA) to set up a joint venture company (JVCo) to aid the country’s low carbon transition via the expansion of district cooling technology in Malaysia.
The climate is rapidly changing, and so should we.. By modifying how we live, we can reduce our carbon footprint, and hopefully, help slow down the effects of climate change..
Sunway has been championing smoke-free initiatives since 2013. In 2018, Sunway introduced trained auxiliary police to enforce a no-smoking policy within Sunway City Kuala Lumpur.
This innovation will help reduce flooding and ponding while also promoting groundwater recharge and reinforcing the soil to prevent erosion. Sunway Paving Solutions recently won the Honour Award- Landscape Green Products Award at the Malaysia Landscape Architecture Awards 2018 for its green products.
Zero waste is a goal to reduce what we need, to reuse or recycle what we can, and to compost what we cannot. Non-profit organisation Zero Waste Malaysia (ZWM) is taking initiatives to help educate the public and raise awareness about the zero waste lifestyle. Contrary to popular beliefs, zero waste lifestyle saves you money so it’s not unattainable and just for the rich.
Delegates from the Ninth Session of the World Urban Forum (WUF9) were taken on a tour of Sunway City Kuala Lumpur and shown how sustainability efforts were integrated and implemented in the city. Sunway aims to increase employee awareness on the UN SDGs in the effort to incorporate sustainable development principles in the workplace.
Sunway City Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia’s model smart sustainable city, is one of Malaysia's must-visit destinations with a vast array of entertainment, leisure and lifestyle attractions seamlessly integrated across 800 acres offering all-inclusive convenience.
The average global temperature in 2019 was 1.1°C above pre-industrial era.. At the current rate of emissions, the world will reach 1.5°C warming by between 2030 and 2052. Scientists in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) have provided evidence that if the climate warms by 2°C this century, the effects will be unbearable.. Above 4°C, it will be catastrophic. Yet our current economic trajectory is on a definite course to transcend these limits.
