This year, HSBC's head office, Menara IQ in Tun Razak Exchange, won in the Best New Green & Sustainable Commercial Building category at the MalaysiaGBC Leadership in Sustainability Awards 2022. The building also complies with LEED Gold standards, demonstrating its exemplary commitment to environmental sustainability in its architecture and operations.  As one of the showcase activities during the Malaysia Climate Action Week, the BMCC is organising an eco-site visit to Menara IQ for corporate leaders to get inspired by the building's green features and to explore successful sustainable practices in their respective fields.

Following the eco-site visit, Arup is conducting a masterclass on corporate sustainability practices. Arup firmly believes sustainable business models help organisations produce tangible economic, environmental and social benefits, and also to build long-term business success.
