Gamuda Land, Engie Team Up for Sustainable Townships
Gamuda Land Sdn Bhd, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Gamuda Bhd, has partnered with Engie Services Malaysia to implement solar technologies, energy efficiency, and sustainable transport solutions in the property developer's townships.
In a joint statement, the parties said the collaboration will include the development of rooftop solar installations and green transportation infrastructure for the townships of Gamuda Cove in Kuala Langat, Gamuda Gardens in Rawang, and twentyfive7 in Kota Kemuning, all in Selangor, by 2024.
Gamuda Land CEO Chu Wai Lune said the developer designed and planned its townships with a target to achieve a minimum 30% overall reduction in carbon emissions as compared to the business-as-usual design.
"As such, Gamuda Land is always on the lookout for innovative ideas and methods that can be implemented to increase the sustainability of our townships. This partnership with Engie will serve as a springboard for us to pursue a wider scope of energy-efficient opportunities that can complement our carbon reduction efforts," he said.
Engie South East Asia CEO of energy solutions APAC and country head of southeast Asia Thomas Baudlot added that the partnership is a testament to how the association between the right partners can help streamline, accelerate, and amplify what is possible in the realm of sustainable development.
