KUALA LUMPUR, 27 Feb 2017 - InvestKL team recently participated in the tree planting programme as part of the ‘Greener KL’ initiative which targets to plant 100,000 trees by 2020 in Kuala Lumpur by generating participation of the private sector and non-governmental organisations to work together towards creating more sustainable cities.

The rain that morning failed to dampen the spirit of the volunteers who successfully planted a total of 100 rare, tropical trees, courtesy of Wilhelmsen Ship Management and Wilhelmsen Ships Services at Taman Metropolitan Batu.

The ‘Hutan Kita with Wilhelmsen’, is an excellent example of a collaboration between Wilhelmsen – an InvestKL company – with Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL), Yayasan Hijau Malaysia and PEMANDU (Performance Management & Delivery Unit).

Hutan Kita is a tree planting programme initiated by Landskap Malaysia in 2009, with the goal of increasing green cover in urban areas.

As part of the National Transformation Programme (NTP), NKEA Greater Kuala Lumpur/Klang Valley was set up to make Greater Kuala Lumpur a more economically competitive and livable city. To address both aims, InvestKL was set up to attract Multinational Companies to set up regional Headquarters in Greater KL whilst the Greener KL initiative aimed to increase the green space for its citizens.

It is hoped that with such collaborations between public and private entities, more of Greater Kuala Lumpur would be greener whilst achieving the aim of educating the public and making the city more livable for all.
