Petaling Jaya as Host City for UNDP GTALCC project.
Petaling Jaya has been identified as one of the key cities to be targeted under the GTALCC project and subsequent implementation of the Low Carbon City Framework. The Green Technology Application for the development of Low Carbon Cities (GTALCC) project is to support Malaysia’s aspiration of promoting low carbon development in the cities (hence low carbon cities), reduce carbon emissions in the city envelop and eventually contribute towards the national commitment as pledge by the Prime Minister during the COP15 where Malaysia is committed to reducing up to 40% of Green House Gasses (GHGs) in terms of emission intensity by GDP by the year 2020 (compared to 2005 levels) conditional upon financing and transfer of technology by the developed countries. GTALCC aspires to achieve the following outcomes by the end of the 5-year project period: • Major cities implemented and adopted integrated low carbon urban development plans and /or programs; • Expedient appraisal, approval and implementation of strategic urban development plans/program and projects related to the wide spread development of low carbon cities; • Major cities are aware of, and are planning and implementing low carbon technology applications for integrated urban development; • Increased investment in low carbon technology applications in cities; • More low carbon urban infrastructure projects implemented in Malaysian cities; The proposed project is in line with the GEF 5 Strategic Objective CCM 4 on the promotion of energy efficient low carbon transport and urban systems. It consists of interventions across cities in Malaysia to facilitate the implementation of low carbon initiatives and showcase a clear and integrated approach of successful low carbon city development. In general, cities are a key contributor of GHG emissions with an estimated 70% of the world’s energy related emissions. In Malaysia, more than half of total emissions are related to urban spaces—specifically, electricity (up to 26% of the emissions), transportation (16%) and solid waste (12%). Recognizing that cities are natural partners to chart a low carbon growth path the Government of Malaysia has launched the Low Carbon Cities Framework and Assessment (LCCF). The objective is to achieve sustainable development, reduce carbon emissions of the cities and contribute towards the national commitment of reducing up to 40% of GHGs in terms of emission intensity by GDP by the year 2020 compared to 2005 levels. Currently, several low carbon city initiatives which explicitly target low carbon development are at various stages of development at the national and subnational levels. However, the initiatives are developing in a rather fragmented manner without a common shared vision, integrated approach to low carbon development, agreed definitions or well accepted methodologies and standards. As such, a full scale project is proposed in the PIF, which focuses on the removal of barriers pertaining to policy and regulatory; financing issues; awareness, technical and institutional capacity through the three (3) components: - • Component 1: Policy support for the promotion of integrated low carbon urban development • Component 2: Awareness and institutional capacity development • Component 3: Low carbon technology investments in cities Start year

Setting up of first food bank by a local authority in Malaysia
Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ) has made history by being the first local authority in the country to set up their own food bank to help welfare homes and needy person. This project had obtained support from the National Solid Waste Management Department (JSPN) who had provided the necessary tools for project management. The programme was first launched in 2012 by then mayor Datuk Roslan Sakiman in conjunction with World Food Day. Overall, the project aims to benefit about 75 charity organizations including PJ Nursing Home, Care Home Jalan Gasing, Persatuan OKU dan Terbiar Lovely PJ and Stella-Maris Home. These welfare organizations will be receiving food donated by restaurants, hotels, food manufacturers and hypermarkets twice a week. No other local government has done this, as food banks are normally set up by non-governmental organizations (NGOs). The intention of the project is to create awareness among the public to stop wasting food. The setting up of the food bank is a public private initiative as many private companies such as Dutch Lady Milk Industried Berhad, Nestle Products Sdn Bhd, Tesco Stores (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd, Mirabelle Patisseries Sdn Bhd and Cherry Cake House had come forward to donate food to the recipients.

Green Requirements for setting up of new buildings
NEW developments, be it commercial or residential regardless of scale, type and geographical location must fulfil a list of green criteria set by the Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ) before the planning permission is given. All developments including semi-detached structures and bungalows will have to be fitted with a rainwater harvesting system and maintain a minimum of 10% total land area as green open space. Meanwhile, new commercial and mixed commercial developments will have to fulfil five criteria: - • Installation a rainwater harvesting system • green building index (GBI) compliance • use of light emitting diode (LED) lamps • eco-friendly development manual (Masma) specifications • landscape area of about 10% to 15% out of their total development area. MBPJ is the only local authority to have actually made the installation of rainwater systems and LED lighting within building plans as mandatory rather than voluntary. Another key initiative of the council is the promotion of housing insulation together with the Malaysian Insulation Manufactuers Group (MIMG) . The intention is to promote insulation as energy efficient material to reduce infiltration of sunlight and atmospheric heat into Malaysian buildings. Subsequently, the building owner would enjoy lower energy consumption and energy costs. As part of a corporate social responsibility initiative, the MIMG group has offered to install these insulation materials in 4 houses for free to prove and demonstrate the reliability of the materials to Petaling Jaya residents. The pilot project is expected to commence in January 2016 with the assistance of the council within Kampung Kayu Ara village. Green Requirements • Rainwater Harvesting System • Applicants for new developments will be required to install a rainwater harvesting system according to guidelines set by the Urban Wellbeing, Housing and Local Government Ministry. This comes under the ministry’s Guidelines for Installing A Rainwater Collection and Utilisation System. Developments include bungalows, semi-detached structures, apartments, condominiums, commercial units and even mixed development units. Between 2010 and 2011, MBPJ received 418 applicants, while there were 117 applications in 2012 and 93 as of September 2013. MBPJ is the only local authority to have actually made the installation of rainwater systems as mandatory rather than voluntary • Green Building Index (GBI), an accreditation scheme in Malaysia • New developments will have to adhere or meet the requirements of the green building standards. In other words, buildings have to meet the criteria on energy and water efficiency.This is to be reflected in the building plans submitted to the city council. For example, using materials such as LED lights, efficient energy usage through solar panelling or even sufficient windows where sunlight can come through. Applicants have to submit this together with the building plans and not after the final reports. Projects approved in accordance with the GBI were 61 for 2010 to 2011, 16 for 2012 and 13 between January and September 2013. This GBI requirement, however, is only required for bigger-scaled developments like commercial units or mixed developments. In addition, developers are also required to include a landscape area of about 10% to 15% in their projects. This space will have to be free from utilities and other structures and set aside for landscaping. Wisma Rehda in Petaling Jaya adhering to the council’s green guidelines by installing lots of glass panelling to conserve energy • Green Rebates • Open to 100,000 households in the city, homeowners are urged to go green and stand a chance to get an assessment rebate of up to 100%. The value of the rebate will be determined by six criteria such as energy, water, transport, compost, biodiversity and other green initiatives they may have. For example, cultivate a garden in the house or participate in recycling activities. Owners of semi-D’s, terrace, bungalows, apartments, condominiums and flats are eligible. Applicants will need to present their application form along with a copy of their latest assessment bill, electricity bill, water bill and myKad. Homeowners who have received the rebate will be required to reapply for the following year. They will also be required to take on more green initiatives. In 2011, only 50 applied, with 49 eligible to participate and 13 receiving a 100% rebate. Meanwhile in 2012, 83 applied, 65 were eligible and 15 received a 100% assessment rebate. As of August 2013, 123 applied, 97 were eligible and 24 received a 100% rebate. Start year

Waste to Weath Anaerobic Digestor
The Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ) canteen operator is tossing fruit peels, vegetable stems, food scraps and used tea bags into a mobile anaerobic digester (AD) to create pollution-free methane gas (CH4). The gas is used to cook for the lunch crowd daily at MBPJ’s headquarters. The new innovative approach by the council to turn biodegradable waste into cooking gas, gives hope that food waste may have a better future than rotting at landfills and producing harmful greenhouse gases. Organics and other food scraps have long been just part of MBPJ’s trash pile but this pilot programme “Waste to Wealth”, in collaboration with CH Green Company, allows a smarter choice for organic waste disposal. By using the mobile anaerobic digester machine, there have been many benefits as it has helped to reduce the amount of trash going to landfills and also curbs transport costs. Diesel costs and carbon emissions have also been reduced thus mitigating the council’s expenditure costs. Lifespan of landfills may also be extended. Similarly, the generated compost may be also used as fertilizer material. Due to its success, another joint project with GEC, an environmental NGO and involving 15 food operators at SS2 Food Court would be rolled out at the end of December. Apart from that, The Council has also allocated RM One million under the 2016 Budget to roll out similar initiative in other part of the city. Start year

Good governance in solid waste management
With the recent formation of solid waste management department within Petaling Jaya city Council, the Council is embarking on an era of environmental good governance within its waste management and public cleanliness activities. Activities of good governance in this activity include: - a) Waste management sharing concept Residents of high-rises in Petaling Jaya would no longer need to hire their own waste management contractors as the Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ) will be picking up the tab in 2015. MBPJ would first calculate an estimated amount of waste produced per unit in a high-rise development and then multiply it with the number of units there to create a bench mark. If residents of the high-rise development were to produce less waste than expected, the money saved from reduced collection fees will be split evenly between MBPJ and the building's Joint Management Body (JMB). Subsequently, the fees will be borne by MBPJ if the amount collected is the same as the estimated amount, but cautioned that if the collected waste exceeded the estimated amount, the JMB will have to pay the extra charges. This would be a form of incentive for people to reduce, reuse, and recycle (3R) so they will not produce waste unnecessarily and excessively in parallel with the concept of polluters pay. b) At the same time, Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ) implemented a new complaint management and solving programme to better manage and solve complaints from residents and council members. Under its Councillor Neighbourhood Ambassador (CNA) programme, MBPJ will initially select three zones with one MBPJ officer appointed to each zone to monitor and manage all the complaints within that zone. c) Implementation of guidelines being drawn up by MBPJ to regulate blossoming food truck business where the food truck owners do not dispose of their waste products efficiently. d) A new rubbish collection system initiated by the Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ) at Kampung Baru Seri Setia that began in November has proven successful and effective. The council implemented a central deposit system where it identified and designated rubbish sites at intersections around the village to reduce unnecessary trips the trucks needed to make. Subsequently, the council would reduce mileage costs along with CO2 emissions. e) Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ) implemented a three-month pilot project called the Mobile Waste Transfer Station at Section 5, Petaling Jaya, to increase waste disposal effectiveness in the area. A 10 tonne capacity Roll-On and Roll-Off (RoRo) bin will be placed at Jalan 5/2 as the Council have already received permission of the residents and the site was chosen due to its strategic open space location to accommodate the accessibility of trucks. The bin will be placed from 8:30am until 4:30pm every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday weekly, to store garden and bulk waste collected throughout the neighbourhood of Section 5. The Council feel that this initiative is aimed at increasing productivity of rubbish collection service by reducing trips taken to the landfill, transportation cost and manpower needed f) Elimination of problem of illegal banners by year-end in collaboration with waste disposal contractors in accordance with the City Beautification Committee of MBPJ g) Establishing the online and real time communication platform at respective neighbourhood area with the participation of Council staff, residents’ representatives, council member, contractors and elected members of state legislative council. The digital medium allows dissemination of information regarding work schedules of contractors, any emergency disruption on services rendered, complaints lodged by residents, announcement by the Council. This method has managed to reduce the number of complaints and to shorten response time taken to rectify flaw in services. h) Introducing concept of shared responsibility amongst the small traders at SS2, SS3 and Section 20 night market. The market would be closed for a day if more than 30% of the total number of traders committed offences in relations to rubbish and cleanliness at public area. This has improved the level of cleanliness at trading area tremendously because the traders started to keep an eye on the behavior of their fellow traders. i) A pilot project on waste separation involving 660 household has been started since end of September. The project aims at encouraging recycling at source has resulted reduction on waste collected. It is hope that lessons learned would help the Council to roll out the city-wide waste separation requirement by all households by end of November. j) The Council provides economic incentive to any house owners conducting any form of recycling activities since 2011. These include collection of recyclable items; reuse discarded items, food waste composting and other initiatives. Start year

Petaling Jaya Energy Management Plan
In 2014, the Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ) spent RM 6.79 million on electricity bills with the bulk of the amount spent on air conditioning and lighting. Out of that vast amount, RM 0.87 million was for MBPJ’s headquarters and it was estimated that the majority of the electricity consumed in the head quarters was spent on air-conditioning and lighting. As the building was first built in 1975, its forty year existence means that a number of energy saving opportunities exist. As part of the energy management initiatives, MBPJ will carry out the following initiatives: - • to switch Personal computers into hibernation mode when not in use after 30 minutes by using timing software • reducing at least 10% of electricity use for buildings • setting the indoor temperature to 24°C • switching off the lights during lunch break • replacing existing Compact Fluorescent Lighting (CFL) lights to LED and other energy saving lighting Subsequently, at the same time, MBPJ intends to implement ISO 50001 which is an international energy management standard to set fthe foundation for systematic fuel and electrcity consumption within its operations.

Sustainable Transport Systems including Electric Vehicles
Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ) has embarked on a series of green energy initiatives especially within the transportation sector: - • The use of electric buses is being made a reality within Petaling Jaya with the intention of reducing the carbon footprint of the city. As part of an agreement between Prasarana (Malaysian Public Bus Service provider) and MBPJ , the council has expanded its fleet of free public buses to include 1 electric bus equipped with wi-fi. • At the same time, MBPJ has bought 20 electric motorcycles for the use of its staff to provide community services to the residents of Petaling Jaya. • MBPJ had established various cycling paths and walkways for pedestrians to use. This is an extenstion of the eco-mobility concept highlighted in Petaling Jaya’s list of sustainable actions undertaken last year. All Free bus service stops are to be integrated within a 400 m radius of walking and cycling routes made safe for the public. Consequently, the bycycle paths are about 56 kilometres long and conjoined with bus shelters along Light Rail Transit stations, commuter stations and major destinations for public amenities. • Apart of the electric charging station at MBPJ reported in last year’s EHCC submission, MBPJ has also faciliated the setting up of electric charging facilities at Jaya One shopping complex, Nissan car showroom and the upcoming Pinacle office tower near Hotel Armada. • Based on trust, the council also provides annual property tax rebates to residents who claim that they are able to fullfill any one of 6 environmental qualification aspects including commuting via public transport as part of their daily routine Start year
