A Duo Of Green Awards For Gamuda Land

Last year, Gamuda Cove became the first privately owned township to be conferred the 5-diamond design recognition at the Low Carbon City 2030 Challenge by the Ministry of Environment and Water. This distinction is not extended to another two of Gamuda Land’s townships, namely Gamuda Gardens and twentyfive7 which received a 4-diamond and 3-diamond recognition respectively. We are happy to receive our third recognition for Low Carbon City Framework design for both Gamuda Gardens and twentyfive7. This shows that our newer townships are mindfully planned with consideration for ESG (environmental, social and governance) elements in line with the Gamuda Green Plan,” says Chu Wai Lune, Chief Executive Officer of Gamuda Land. Among the specific steps in the aforementioned green plan is the reduction of direct and indirect corporate greenhouse gas emission intensity by 45 per cent in 2030.
