Emissions

Why It Matters

In 2019, the earth’s surface temperature was almost one Celsius degree warmer than the 20th century average. In the last few years, global temperature have been consistently among the hottest on record. The recent exponential change in global temperature and climate related issues are due to an increase in human activities and the demand for energy. Climate change will not only impact communities but also businesses in the long run. Thus, we are actively taking steps to lower our carbon emissions and are open to ideas in providing solutions towards building a low carbon society.

We believe that biodiversity lies at the heart of sustainable development and human well-being, and its conservation forms the core of the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

Biodiversity reflects the richness, variety and ultimately the health of an environment. A rich natural ecosystem, in turn, support and enrich our living conditions.

Conservation is the protection, preservation, management and restoration of wildlife and natural resources. Our robust list of strategies and actions for biodiversity conservation, enrichment and integration of nature into our businesses are as follows.​

Integrating Biodiversity and Living Space

The integration between the needs of living space and nature is what we strive for when creating our developments. It is to ensure the original biodiversity of a place flourishes under our care. This testament is reflected through the trees planted and landscape areas that were retained on all our developments.

Education

The GParks Rangers programme is to inspire the younger generation, comprising children aged between five and 12 years old, to care about nature and instil a sense of environmental responsibility within them.

Advanced Tree Planting

Desired trees are identified and procured in advance. The trees are nurtured and monitored at our nursery for at least two years before planting them onsite so that our township community would not have to wait for the trees to grow.

Paya Indah Discovery Wetlands

Dedicated to the conservation of this natural sanctuary to 244 species of birds, 12 mammals and 20 reptiles.

Arboretum

Develop an arboretum to regenerate flora and fauna species. This includes a horticulture nursery for propagating green stock and creating a circular economy from the organic waste for the sustainable use of green resources.
