Kuching North City Hall: Making Kuching beautiful, environmentally sustainable

Date:

KUCHING: The Kuching North City Hall (DBKU) is committed in making Kuching beautiful and more environmentally sustainable city.

Assistant Minister in the Chief Minister’s Department (Islamic Affairs and DBKU) Datuk Dr Abdul Rahman Junaidi stressed that projects and plans to beautify the city reflected the city hall’s efforts to continue the work towards such objectives.

He noted that DBKU was crowned champion in the 9th Sarawak Chief Minister’s Environmental Award (CMEA) 2019/2020 in the Local Authority/City Council category last September.

“CMEA is a prestigious award aimed at recognising the efforts and commitment of an industry, local authorities and individuals for the concern in environmental protection.

“The winners of the award are widely recognised by the public as the best example in environmental preservation and conservation efforts,” he said in a press conference at DBKU building, today (Oct 21).

Among the factor that contributed to the city hall’s success in winning the award was complying with ISO EMS 14001 standard where DBKU has been certified since the 2000s.

“Apart from that, the Friendly Neighbourhood Approach (KJM) has increased engagement with residents in environmental conservation activities such as gotong royong, 3R buy back, environmental awareness workshop and so on.

“The city hall’s efficient public feedback management in taking action against non-compliance or any defect of service as well as the introduction and implementation of new environmental plans such as the street lighting project, the trash can pilot project as well solid waste isolation have been successfully implemented,” he added.

In the past decade, DBKU has won several CMEA awards, including as the first runner-up in the Service Sector (Public Sector Category) in2008, the Gold Award (2012 and 2017), winner of the 6th CMEA (2014) and champion in the Local Authority Category (2018).
