“As responsible corporate citizens, Sunsuria strongly believes in sustainable practices. While it is important to continue developing our cities and economy, we must remember that we cannot do this at the expense of our environment or the well-being of our future generations. We are glad to be part of the big vision once again as we participated as venue sponsor for the Shark Hero Conservations Run 2017. Exercising and adopting environment friendly techniques has been one of the continuous efforts and heartbeat of our organization in which eventually embedded into our key developments such as our township, Sunsuria City. Sunsuria City is designed as a Green Building Initiative (GBI)-compliant township that incorporates energy-efficient features to reduce wastages and preserve the ecosystem. Therefore, as a quest to continue this principle through our township, we hope that Malaysians will see the importance of protecting the marine life in order to ensure a healthy eco-system to the environment. “said Tan Sri Ter, Executive Chairman of Sunsuria Berhad
