The Global Coastal Ecological Environment Protection Model of Sustainable Cities and Human Settlements Awards 2020 (SCAHSA) was awarded to Forest City in Johor during the 15th Annual Global Forum on Human Settlements organised in a virtual format on 15th and 16th October 2020.
This is the fifth consecutive year Forest City has won this multinational recognition.
Dr Kelly Wang, Deputy General Manager of Country Garden’s Overseas and SAR Division has received the award on behalf of Forest City and said, “Forest City has always adhered to sustainable growth, concentrating on the balance between urban development and conservation of nature”. Green ecological growth programmes are also implemented in phases and one of the most important areas is coastal ecological security.
During the opening of its phase 1 for Eco Museum Exhibition Hall, Forest City released its Ecological Development Action Plan in September 2020. The plan outlined the priorities and goals of the growth, operation and management of eco cities from the beginning of the project development in 2014 to the future. Following this strategy, as a foundation, Forest City will develop green infrastructure, optimise high-tech industries to improve urban economic growth, and eventually become a green and vibrant city with diverse industries and cultures.
Alex Camprubi, Member of the Technical Committee of the Asian Habitat Society in consultative status with the United Nations (ECOSOC) said, “Forest City’s consistent ecological and environmental protection measures not only reflects the sense of corporate social responsibility but also how it achieved the balanced development of urban operations and green ecology”.
