The Launch Of Malaysian University’s First Ever Refurbished Green Office
The first-ever refurbished green office space in a Malaysian university was launched at the University of Malaya by its Vice-Chancellor, Professor Dato’ Dr. Mohd Amin Jalaludin. The main objective of the Green Office is to minimise, or completely avoid negative impacts of ‘regular’ built environments on staff health and the environment. At this site, this was done by ensuring that critical resources are used efficiently and installing equipment that protects occupant health, which in turn improves productivity. A positive side-effect is that waste, pollution and environmental degradation are reduced and the resultant office space is safe, comfortable, healthy and liveable.
