Bringing new life to our to our townships

We are delighted to share that our efforts to enrich the biodiversity, sustainability and liveability of our townships and developments has already yielded promising results.

Our sustainable initiatives are focused on three core pillars:

Sustainable Business

SECOND PILLAR

Sustainable Business

We do this by mindfully managing our green infrastructure, fostering 6R waste management practices, and building a Wetlands Arboretum Centre as a research centre in the Wetlands Arboretum in Gamuda Cove, among other initiatives.

Wetlands Arboretum

Gamuda Land earmarked 90-acre of prime land in Gamuda Cove for the creation of the Wetlands Arboretum, envisioned to be a natural sanctuary for wildlife conservation, nature research and forest fitness. The Wetlands Arboretum is designed with the aim of fighting climate change while fostering education and biodiversity research with the development of a Wetlands Arboretum, located within this sanctuary.

Our Action Plan:

Wetlands

Arboretum Centre

Set within the Wetlands Arboretum, our Wetlands Arboretum Centre will be established to host an environmental education based and introduced a living plant museum to propagate plants species that suit local habitat with a focus on wetlands ecosystem set up as part of Gamuda Group’s overall conservation and carbon sequestration efforts.

Endangered Species

Reintroduction

As a forest seedling bank and nursing ground for healthy plant stocks, seeds will be gathered for propagation and research purposes. Priority is given to growing native species and trees with high values under the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) red list. Progressive monitoring and observation systems are implemented to ensure a 100% survival rate for these plants.

Green Infrastructure

We strive to live in harmony with our natural surroundings, replacing harder elements by fostering green innovation when planning our greenscapes.

Our Action Plan:

Permeable

Path

We have replacing concrete pavers with permeable path to promote porosity which allowing for water infiltration to replenish precious potable water. 

Green

Rooftop

We have implemented a network of green roof systems at Gamuda Gardens Central Park that store rainwater and support rooftop urban wildlife habitat for birds, butterflies and other pollinators.

Rain

Garden

We integrated bio-swales at most of our parks as to collect rainwater, detain run-off, filter pollutants and allow for ground water infiltration. A shallow depression planted with deep-rooted native plants and grass.

6R Waste Management

We have committed to reduce our waste to landfills at different stages. In circular economy, we eliminate waste by actively practice the 6R - Reduce, Reuse, Repair, Recycle, Rot, and Repurpose.

 

Our waste collected to date:

Food Waste

9,400kg

Garden Waste

540,000kg

Fabric Waste

19,500kg

Recycling Bins Waste

6,300kg

Our Action Plan:

Food Waste

Management

Our food waste management is specifically addressed through ‘Compost on Wheels’, a composting truck to facilitate urban composting and ‘Plate to Plant’ programme in Menara Gamuda, our first dedicated compost machine.

Garden Waste

Management

Under our Brown Ecosystem Thrust,  garden  composting  is  practiced  throughout  Gamuda  Land townships.  This  involves  turning garden  waste  such  as  fallen  leaves  into  bio-fertilizer  thereby  helping  reduce  carbon  emissions.

Unwanted Fabric

Management

Six fabric bins have been located around Gamuda Land townships. The fabric waste collected will be donated to charitable organizations or exported to developing countries. From the grading station, some fabric will also undergo fiber reclamation and energy conversion to RDF, refuse-derived fuel (a type of fuel produced from solid waste).
