English Español Shell first to have certified ‘green retail fuels stations’ in Asia Pacific

Shell receives the GBI Certification for two of its stations, a key milestone in its effort to a more sustainable tomorrow.

Last update:

Shell Malaysia became the first in Asia Pacific’s retail fuel industry to be awarded the Green Building Index (GBI) Certification. Two of its stations, Shell Damansara Jaya and Shell Taman Connaught, are now recognised as ‘green buildings’.

With the introduction of the new Retail Fuel category within the Green Building Index, Malaysia’s green rating tool to promote sustainable construction and buildings, it paves the way for the world of fuels to introduce more eco-friendly solutions at its stations.

“When the new category for the Retail Fuel industry was introduced, we decided to put on our thinking caps to rethink and retrofit smart solutions and design elements into our stations. I am especially proud as we were able to achieve GBI Certification for these two stations within six months,” said Shairan Huzani Husain, Managing Director of Shell Malaysia Trading Sdn Bhd and Shell Timur Sdn Bhd.

Some of the implemented GBI elements include the installation of a solar Photo Voltaic (PV) system to generate clean electricity through solar supplements, replacement of conventional bathroom fittings with waterless urinals and water saving taps, as well as monitoring systems that would alert the station of any consumption inconsistency to avoid unnecessary wastage of resources.
