Project Title:
City of Elmina comprises of 4 ongoing and completed
townships—Elmina West, Elmina East, Bukit Subang, and Denai Alam. Total project duration is 41 years since 2001 when we started Bukit Subang Township.
The City of Elmina, a regional grouping of townships is located along the Guthrie Corridor Expressway (GCE), Shah Alam.

City of Elmina’s vision is to create a thriving sustainable community for generations to come, by designing and executing a master plan that is based on the Sime Darby’s holistic approach to sustainability – based on achieving a balance between the 3 ‘P’, Planet (environmental), People (socio-economic), and Prosperity (financial).
Prior to land development in Malaysia, we undertake either an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA). During these processes, Environmental Management Plans (EMP) are prepared with conditions for approval set by the Department of Environment (DOE). These EMPs provide the approach we take to manage and minimise environmental and socio–economic impacts during the development phase of our projects. As a result, we had no significant fines and non–monetary sanctions for non–compliance with environmental laws and regulation.
