KUCHING: Sarawak Energy Bhd (SEB) is supporting Sabati (Association of Wives of Ministers and Assistant Ministers of Sarawak) and Kuching North City Hall (DBKU) in an urban greenery programme to beautify the Isthmus area here.
SEB is one of the sponsors of the initiative on Nov 15, when 30 of its employees will join Sabati and DBKU to plant seedlings along the 3.7km stretch of Jalan Keruing from Menara Sarawak Energy towards the Borneo Convention Centre Kuching.
A delegation from Sabati led by deputy president Datuk Dayang Morliah Awang Daud paid a courtesy call on SEB group chief executive Sharbini Suhaili for the programme.
Also present to receive the delegation were human resources senior vice-president Dr Mak Met and distribution vice-president Siti Aisah Adenan.
“Sarawak Energy is pleased to contribute to this important initiative by Sabati to beautify the surrounding area at Isthmus where we are located,” Sharbini said.
He noted that Menara Sarawak Energy was the first building in East Malaysia to receive the Green Building Index (GBI) accreditation.
“So it makes sense for us to support such a healthy environmental initiative. Securing and retaining the GBI certification is part of our commitment towards incorporating sustainable practices at all levels of our operations,” he said.
Sharbini added that SEB encouraged staff volunteerism in support of community initiatives as an extension of its corporate social responsibility.
To incorporate sustainability at all levels, SEB also has electric cars and scooters in its corporate fleet which run primarily on renewable energy.
