YTL's Wessex Water wins award
Somerset County Gazette, 28 April 2010
YTL's Wessex Water is in the running to represent the UK at the European business awards for the environment in Brussels next year. 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.

This is what I live for
Managment Magazine, 17 March 2010
Brought up to respect the environment and to appreciate its beauty, Ruth Yeah, is unwavering in her passion to reduce carbon footprints. My father has always taught me to do business the right way, always in the Christian way. The environment is God's creation. It is a huge responsibility. We have been brought into this earth to be His stewards to protect the wealth that He has given us. You might have seen our premiere of Ed Norton's Strange Days on Planet Earth on the National Geographic Channel. I know Ed Norton Sr through the environmental circles that we mix in. His son the Ed Norton, the Hollywood actor, is following in his footsteps. It really encourages me as it reminds me so much of my father and me. We also premiered the Inconvenient Truth movie. In the second year we did the same thing with the Eleventh Hour movie. We also held business conferences and you workshops. I invited every school in Malaysia to participate and that was very successful. During Earth Hour we gave away our Green Ribbon Award to the school with the most innovative sustainability programme. There are a lot of lobbyists and skeptics who are paid to work against these initiatives but that doesn't stop me because I know that there is a lot of caring Malaysians out there. I invite them to be part of the projects that we do.
