Sarawak's First Green Building Index Course to Take Place This Week

From tomorrow until this Saturday (March 7-9), Pertubuhan Arkitek Malaysia Sarawak Chapter (PAMSC) and the Malaysia Green Building Confederation (MGBC) have organized the first Sarawak Green Building Index course to be held at the CIDB Convention Centre Sarawak. The course is in support of Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg’s green intiatives.


The course will have the building industry and local authorities to address the importance of green building in alleviating global warming. Experts leading the course will share knowledge on reducing green building capital cost, increasing green building value to the market, and lowering carbon emissions.

Without the proper knowledge in green building technologies and failing to make it part of core planning and design, green buildings often result in being expensive.

However, even though green buildings used to be more expensive, they have become the norm in today’s building construction trend. Because of this, the green cost has decreased to near zero for certified buildings adopting cooler buildings.

“Green buildings reduce the carbon and ecological footprint on our fragile environment, and climate change risk, while improving health and wellbeing.

“With such noble intentions, every person in the world, especially in Malaysia, should be working and living in a green building,” said the press release.
