sustainaBle DeveloPments

Our aim of incorporating sustainability features within all our developments has borne fruit.
In November 2012, Eco Sanctuary in Singapore was conferred the BCA Green Mark Platinum
award. In October 2013, Setia City Mall in Setia Alam, Selangor, won both The Edge Malaysia
Property Excellence Award and The Edge-PAM Green Excellence Award.

As Malaysia’s frst certifed green mall, Setia City Mall is defnitely setting new benchmarks for
both the property and retail industries as it was named Best Retail Development in the FIABCI
Malaysia Property Awards 2013.

In 2013, we launched Setia EcoHill in Semenyih, to overwhelming response proving that
the Malaysian house buyer is looking for sustainable developments that can support an
environmentally responsible lifestyle. Over 25,000 people registered their interest in the
township in the few weeks before the soft launch in early October, during which 760 units of
terrace house, semi-D, linked semi-D and zero-lot bungalow snapped up within fve hours.

worlD environment Day

Since 2008, the Group has observed World Environment Day (WED) with the aim of inculcating
environmental awareness both internally as well as within our communities throughout
Malaysia and abroad.

In 2013, S P Setia chose to celebrate World Environment Day (WED) on foot, by organising
multiple events at its townships located in the Klang Valley, Johor and Penang with the theme
“Setia ECO Walkathon – Walking is Loving our Planet”. More than 4,000 people turned up in
total at the three venues of Setia Alam, Shah Alam; Setia Eco Cascadia, Johor and Setia Pearl
Island, Penang.

“Walking is a great way to enjoy the beauty of nature, get some exercise and mingle with friends
and family whilst honouring World Environment Day” said Tan Sri Liew Kee Sin, President and
Chief Executive Offcer of S P Setia Berhad.
