SHAH ALAM, MAR 6: The Shah Alam City Council (MBSA) together with Selangor State Development Corporation (PKNS) had planted 2,830 plants for the ‘Shah Alam Trees For Life 2017’ programme at the Taman Tasik Shah Alam recently.
Shah Alam Mayor, Dato’ Ahmad Zaharin Mohd Saad said, the programme which was held for the second time was to green Shah Alam’s landscape.
“MBSA provided 1,800 saplings for the programme consisting of the ‘kemutu, lantanah, kalifa merah and ati-ati’ trees species.
“Meanwhile, PKNS contributed 1,000 croton trees and 30 agarwood trees costing RM10,500,” he said in a statement.
Zaharin said, the greening programme around the Laman PKNS is seen as a significant effort in view of its green building concept which also received Platinum recognition for the Green Building Index (GBI).
“The programme is also a continuation of PKNS’s efforts to jointly strengthen the greening initiatives after planting over one million trees in 2014 in the Selangor Cyber Valley.
“Therefore, we encourage more participation from corporate and private sectors who wish to carry out their Corporate Social Responsibilities (CSR),” he said.
At the same time, PKNS is also committed to continue the greening program initiatives in collaboration with other selected institutions besides also being committed to achieve the target of planting 20,000 trees across the corporation development area.
