The MoU will see the company bringing the latest technology to convert waste plastic into synthetic oil, waxes and gases that can be reused in industries and the manufacturing sector.
Monica Chin, Blu Hope Sabah’s co-founder and community director, said this ground-breaking platform also includes the provision of waste disposal facilities in outlying areas such as islands and villages.
“We’ll also hold awareness programmes to reduce single use plastics and promote sustainable environmental health and the cleaning up of Sabah’s biodiverse habitats,” she said.
This effort, together with the City Hall, is scheduled to start in key locations such as Pulau Gaya near here with "Blu Hope’s Water is Life!" and "Sabah Schools and Fish-Bomb-Free-Sabah" initiatives.
“We can now bring very real, shared value to Sabah’s most remote communities. We only have one Sabah, now is the time for Sabah to shine and lead the way,” Chin said.
Simon Christopher, Blu Hope founder, said the MoU is incredibly important as Sabah can now officially lead the way across Malaysia and the rest of the Coral Triangle with the planned initiatives.
Also present during the event on Wednesday (May 5) were Mayor Noorliza Awang Alip, City Hall's deputy director-general for operations, Robert Lipon, and Clare Ethel Raja, director of Blu Hope Ventures Sdn Bhd.
