More green ideas for i-City

A green concept: I-Berhad deputy executive chairman Datuk Lim Kim Hong (left) briefing Chin (middle) on the concept while I-Berhad CEO Eu Hong Chew looks on.

The developer of i-City, I-Berhad will be introducing a number of ideas that will pave the way for the knowledge and tourism hub to be a green development.

In opting to be a “green development”, the developer will be introducing a number of innovative ideas.

One of it is masterplanning the whole city complex from the start with an

environmental-friendly ecosystem, with a campus setting comprising a central park with fingers of green running throughout.

These includes using architectural designs in buildings to create a north-south orientation that funnels the wind flow as well as to use the buildings’ shadows as shade and LED lights, which are 68% lower in carbon footprint than conventional bulbs, in the design of the “lightscape” digital display.

As part of its commitment to help reduce the carbon footprint, i-City organised the Earth Hour in 2009 to create an awareness of the need to highlight the issue of global warming.

Minister of Energy Technology and Water Datuk Seri Peter Chin Fah Kui who was present at the briefing on the latest ideas had nothing but praises for the concept.

“I would like to congratulate i-City for all these initiatives,’ said Chin.
