Sabah GLC to lead establishment of state’s green technology park

Sabah GLC to lead establishment of state’s green technology park

06 Jun 2024

A Sabah government-linked company (GLC) will pioneer the green technology park (GTP) in the state.

To realise the sustainable development goal, Sawit Kinabalu, through its subsidiary, Sawit Palm Oil Industrial Cluster Sdn Bhd (SPOIC), signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Nextgreen Global Berhad (NGGB) for the establishment of the GTP.

Sabah Chief Minister Datuk Seri Hajiji Noor, who is also Sawit Kinabalu chairman, witnessed the signing ceremony at the Sawit Kinabalu’s new headquarters at Block B, Menara Kinabalu here.

Sawit Kinabalu was represented by its group managing director and chief executive officer Victor Ationg, while NGGB was represented by its group managing director Datuk Lim Thiam Huat.

Through the MoU, both parties will explore and implement key activities of the GTP, such as establishing a collection and processing centre (CPC), a pulp mill, a raw water treatment plant, and a steam boiler on 400 acres of land owned by SPOIC in Sandakan.

The green business concept of the GTP emphasises renewable energy, recovery, and waste elimination, forming the foundation for a green economy that can reduce environmental risks and drive Sawit Kinabalu towards sustainable development.

Earlier, Hajiji inaugurated Sawit Kinabalu’s new headquarters and chaired the company’s board of directors meeting.

He later witnessed the payment of business zakat for the year 2023 amounting to RM800,000 from Victor to Sabah Islamic Religious Council (MUIS), Datuk Mohd Dandan @ Ame Alidin.
