PETALING JAYA, November 9 — iProperty.com Malaysia has formed a partnership with Malaysia Green Building Confederation (MGBC) to promote green buildings for a sustainable built environment in the country.
The three-year partnership was announced at the MGBC’s third Annual Dinner and Awards Night 2016 here on November 4.
Part of the REA Group, iProperty is the country’s main property portal, offering comprehensive property listings, related real-estate, and project marketing services.
REA Group Chief Operating Officer International Arthur Charlaftis said through the partnership, iProperty will work closely with MGBC to provide property buyers and investors information on sustainable living.
“Here in Malaysia, and in fact across Asia, sustainability needs to become an integral part of the property experience.
“We hope that by encouraging young people to adopt and promote sustainable practices at an early age, they will continue to develop these good habits throughout their adult lives,” he said after the signing of the agreement at the dinner.
Charlaftis said it was also timely for relevant parties to come up with a blueprint for developing a sustainable society.
“Together with MGBC, we are well-poised to lead our building industry in embracing responsible measures.
“These will help realise energy savings, water conservation, a healthier indoor environment, better public connectivity, recycling of valuable resources, and provision of greenery in developments,” he added.
