Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre – URBANICE Malaysia collaborate to drive Malaysia’s sustainable agenda forward

The venue, together with Urbanice Malaysia, will also be engaging with the Government and DBKL through knowledge sharing dialogues and the development of integrated urban solutions.

The Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (the Centre) and Urbanice Malaysia have recently signed the first public-private sector Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) which will contribute towards the SDGs of the nation and the Kuala Lumpur City Hall’s (DBKL) efforts to create a sustainable city. The MOU signing ceremony was witnessed by YBhg. Datuk TPr. Sulaiman bin Mohamed, Executive Director of Planning, DBKL.

As part of the MOU, Urbanice Malaysia will provide strategic counsel and advice to help the Centre further align its corporate responsibilities to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals; enhance and execute its SDG roadmap; develop an SDG business events guideline; and expand SDG reporting. The venue, together with Urbanice Malaysia, will also be engaging with the Government and DBKL through knowledge sharing dialogues and the development of integrated urban solutions.

The Centre has retained its EarthCheck (world’s leading scientific benchmarking, certification and advisory group for travel and tourism) Silver certification for the third consecutive year. The certification recognises the Centre’s efforts to decrease energy consumption equivalent to 1,278 four-person households per year; reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions equivalent to 1,938 cars’ worth of annual emissions; lessen potable water consumption equivalent to 46 Olympic-sized swimming pools; decrease waste sent to landfills equivalent to 58 smart cars; and increase financial savings. The venue also recently designed and installed a zero-energy rain water harvesting system, with 80% less cost. The Centre was also the first venue to have partnered with Food Aid Foundation and has fed thousands of people in need during the Movement Control Order (MCO) and recent flash floods in the Klang Valley.

“We have since made some remarkable progress that has inspired us to deepen our commitment to operate in a responsible and sustainable manner. This led us to explore collaborative opportunities with Urbanice Malaysia and we look forward to embarking on this new journey together,” said Alan Pryor, General Manager of the Centre.
