Medini Iskandar Malaysia Sdn Bhd (MIM) recently won two distinguished awards at the International Greenery, Recreation, Infrastructure, Parks (IGRIP) Conference and World Urban Parks in Singapore.
MIM’s urban park developments in Medini City clinched the Green Champion Award in two categories, ‘Emerging Green City’ and ‘Smart and Green Infrastructure: Greenfield Development’. Dr Digby Whyte, Chief Executive Officer of World Urban Parks, and Maria Boey, President of the Institute of Parks & Recreation Singapore (IPRS), presented the two awards to Dr James Tee, Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of MIM.
“We are committed to shaping Medini City as the address of choice for business, leisure and healthy living. The green environment provides an opportunity for everyone to enjoy better lifestyles, fresh air, safe surroundings and a creative environment that is far away from crowded roads, smog and pollution. As a corporate citizen, this is a way for us to give back to society. It is truly a ‘City With A Difference”, said Dr James.
Medini is an integrated urban township development that covers an area of 2,230 acres and Medini City is touted as the CBD of Iskandar Puteri. More than RM2 billion has been invested into providing state-of-the-art infrastructure within Medini to ensure that businesses and homes are well supported for the 21st century.
The IGRIP Conference was organised by the Institute of Parks & Recreation Singapore, a professional body dedicated to the conservation and enhancement of parks and recreational facilities. The inaugural awards aimed to recognise organisations that incorporate the features of ‘Greenery, Buildings, Recreation, Infrastructure and Parks’ in their developments, with the main theme of 3 ‘P’s (Public, Private and Community Participation).
