EPP 6.0 - Greener Kuala Lumpur

As part of efforts to transform Kuala Lumpur into a world-class, top liveable city by 2020, Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur (DBKL), the city hall, aims to increase greenery in the city by planting 100,000 large-coverage trees. DBKL supports this initiative by working with the private sector, which will sponsor tree-planting and establish parks within KL.

This EPP also aims to promote outdoor activities that are expected to spur greater and more diverse commercial activities within the city centre.


  • In 2014, DBKL commenced GPS tagging of all the trees planted under this EPP to easily identify their location for future maintenance. A total of 18,218 trees have been tagged so far and this process will continue in 2015.
  • This EPP has achieved its Roadmap target of planting 100,000 trees in Kuala Lumpur.
  • 26 private companies contributed to the planting of 3,950 trees in 2014.
