“On behalf of SPARK Foundation, I would like to extend our gratitude to GEC, the Department of Irrigation and Drainage (DID), MBPJ, and Selangor Water Management Authority (LUAS) and the local communities for their continuous support for our water stewardship agenda.
Tuan Johary Bin Anuar, Deputy Mayor of MBPJ said: “Water conservation is a critical effort that must be managed effectively especially in a highly urbanised and fast-growing city like Petaling Jaya. Protecting water resources is our collective responsibility and we are committed to support organisations who empower local communities to take action. The initiative by SPARK Foundation, GEC along with multi stakeholders is exemplary as it delivers measurable impact in an area that benefits all Malaysians. We strongly encourage other organisations to learn from SPARK Foundation and embrace holistic environmental improvement projects that are relevant to their businesses.
