Ekovest Berhad Managing Director Datuk Seri Lim Keng Cheng received the award on behalf of Ekovest Berhad, from Ir. Tan Yean Chin, the President of IEM. The presentation of the awards was held at the 57th IEM Annual Dinner & Awards Night held at the Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa.
The River of Life (ROL) Project, where Ekovest Berhad is the Project Delivery Partner (PDP) is an Entry Point Project identified in the Greater Kuala Lumpur/ Klang Valley National Key Economic Area (NKEA) under the Economic Transformation Programme (ETP). The primary goals are to clean up and beautify the river, and develop the land surrounding it. By doing so, it will inevitably attract a large number of competitive investments and deliver a high number of economic opportunities, which can only serve the city and her people well. ROL aims to transform the Klang River into a vibrant and liveable waterfront with high economic value. The transformation is divided into three components: River Cleaning, River Beautification and River Development. The project is also an excellent way to educate the public on the importance of environmental awareness, something that Malaysians are slowly beginning to adopt, but are in need of more initiatives to continue progressing. One of the main goals is to raise the quality of the river’s water from the current Class III and Class IV (not suitable for body contact) to Class IIB (suitable for body contact and recreational usage) by the year 2020.
