Two of S P Setia's townships bag awards at Low Carbon City Awards 2023

S P Setia Bhd's Setia Warisan Tropika and Setia Eco Templer township developments received the Diamond Design awards at the Low Carbon City Awards 2023 held on Feb 8.

The awards was organised by the Malaysian Green Technology and Climate Change Corporation (MGTC) and held in conjunction with the Low Carbon Cities 2030 Challenge, which is an initiative by MGTC under the Ministry of Environment and Water, according to a statement on Thursday.

S P Setia senior executive vice-president Datuk Yuslina Mohd Yunus said, “We are honoured to receive this acknowledgement from MGTC, [Ministry of Natural Resources, Environment and Climate Change] for our townships of Setia Warisan Tropika and Setia Eco Templer."

“It is a true reflection of our hard work in ensuring that all our developments generate low levels of carbon emissions, aligned with Setia’s pillars and vision to be one of the leaders in creating sustainable communities and enriching lifestyles. This is an impetus for us to further integrate Setia’s innovative, low-carbon design solutions across all our developments for our communities in the long term,” she added.

The statement also highlighted that both developments were awarded and credited based on their implementation of the Low Carbon City Framework, which includes key elements of energy, mobility, water, waste, and greenery, and their key efforts in low-carbon efficiencies, sustainable site planning, materials, resources and innovations.

Setia Warisan Tropika occupies a 129.96-acre tract in Bandar Baru Salak Tinggi in Sepang, Selangor, comprising a total of 1,274 residential units, two commercial plots and a clubhouse. The township is expected to be fully completed by 2030.
