Green strategy for construction sector to be developed

A GREEN strategy approach tailored to suit the country's construction industry is expected to be developed at an upcoming carbon neutral conference. This is in line with the Prime Minister's commitment for a 40 per cent Greenhouse gas reduction by 2020.

Among the suggestions that will be put forward are to encourage buildings to incorporate solar panels, water harvesting and other shading materials, monitor earth work, cutting and replanting initiatives.

"We hope buildings will incorporate as many solar panels to harness solar energy because this is the way forward in doing our part to curb the global warming," said Eastern Regional Organisation for Planning and Human Settlement (Earoph) Malaysia deputy president and Rehda Institute chairman of the board of trustee, Datuk Eddy Chen Lok Loi, in Kuala Lumpur yesterday.

Rehda, Earoph Green Technology Innovation and Sime Darby Property are jointly organising Malaysia's first carbon neutral real estate conference: "The Green Solutions Property Conference 2010", which will be held on April 6 in Kuala Lumpur.
The conference is aimed at bringing together property developers, architects, project managers and green technology inventors to share crucial information on green strategies and the implication of green development.

It will also explore various means and measures the industry can adopt to play a more active role in being more environmentally responsible.

Chen said the conference is timely and vital to Malaysia's building industry.

He hopes that it will be a platform for participants to share their experience and knowledge in the pursuit to meet the international sustainability standards.
