PETALING JAYA: Country Garden’s Forest City project, which is located in Johor, has won the Global Model of City-Industry Integration Award at the 2018 Sustainable Cities and Human Settlements Awards (SCAHSA).

This is the third year in a row that Forest City has garnered the honour.

In 2017 Forest City won the Global Model of Green Building Industrial Park award for the Industrialised Building System (IBS) Base, while in 2016, it clinched the Global Human Settlements Award on Planning and Design award.

The SCAHSA was one of the highlights of the Annual Sessions of Global Forum on Human Settlements (GFHS) 2018, a two-day event held at the United Nations Conference Centre held in Bangkok.

The forum was organised by the Global Forum on Human Settlements (GFHS) and the United Nations Economic And Social Commission For Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP).

“Building a sustainable green and smart city is the future of urban development. Unprecedented and rapid urbanisation poses many challenges to the world but at the same time, scientific and technological revolution presents great opportunities for urban planning and development.

“Malaysia is a diversified emerging industrial economy in Asia, therefore if industry and property developers can integrate sustainable urban development concepts into their urban planning, it will elevate Malaysia property and construction industry to an international standard,” said Country Garden Malaysia and Forest City director of strategy Ng Zhu Hann in a statement yesterday.

Ng said the company has invested RM730mil to build the largest and most advance IBS facility in South-East Asia.
