Towards a Green Generation
Malaysian Today, 4 June 2010
Come June 5, World Environment Day will mark the continuing struggle between Mother Earth and Man. We can do our part to help her win, and we should do it now. We speak to those in the know, and take a leaf or two from the books of green-friendly companies in Malaysia. Leading infrastructure conglomerate YTL Corporation Berhad knows full well the impact of development on the environment. They have made sustainable development something integral to their business strategy, especially in the use and development of clean technology and renewable energy. One of their efforts will be very familiar to us: Every year, during Earth Hour, all YTL buildings turn off their lights, darkening the KL city skyline to signify (pun intended) the light of hope for Earth.

But behind the scenes, every aspect of YTL's involvement in infrastructure, power generation, construction contracting, cement and manufacturing, property development, hotels, resorts and leisure and technology incubation have undergone stringent efforts to minimise (and definitely work towards eliminating) the impact to the environment. YTL has also taken great steps to maintain active participation in environmental efforts by working with The Nature Conservancy, Rare Conservation, Reef Check Malaysia, Malaysian Nature Society, TrEES and WWF-Malaysia. And in looking to the future, YTL will be hosting for the fourth consecutive year, Climate Change Week from June 19 to 21 this year, designed specifically with the objective of raising environmental consciousness amongst Malaysians as well as inspire them to be part of the solution to the urgent issue of global warming.

All these organisations speak of a greener Malaysia, and there is more: A National Climate Change Policy has been approved and awaits only the time when it can be fully enforced and implemented in schools and all levels of society. According to the National Conference on Sustainability Malaysia 2010, our aim of reducing carbon intensity by 40 per cent is very much possible, and that Prime Minister has every intention of tackling this head-on. With all the mobilisation swirling around us, how can we be left behind when our generation is the future? So, isn't it time you left your car keys behind, and walk to your friendly neighbourhood mamak just 10 minutes away?

YTL's Wessex Water wins award

The water company is among the winners in the Green Apple Environment Awards – one of the major international environmental awards schemes and a feeder into the European Awards.

Ruth Barden, of Wessex Water’s environmental regulation team, said everyone was delighted when they heard the company was among those to be shortlisted. Wessex Water will be presented with its Green Apple Award at the Tower of London in June when it will also find out if it has secured the top award.
