Zurich Malaysia unveiled its brand-new “Care For What Matters” campaign, reiterating its dedication to fostering good influence in order to create a brighter future for all individuals.
The “Care For What Matters” brand campaign encompasses an array of impactful initiatives that reinforce Zurich Malaysia’s commitment to embrace a sense of responsibility towards what truly matters. In addition to the brand campaign film, another key highlight is the upcoming “Karnival Kita OK!” weekend, scheduled to take place from 22 to 24 September at the Central Market. This event promises a vibrant assortment of workshops and booths involving a diverse range of local sellers and organisations, including clothing, accessories, food, and more. The event embodies Zurich Malaysia’s dedication to being there for one another and contributing to a brighter, more vibrant future together.
Visitors of “Karnival Kita OK!” will also be able to access a photo exhibition showcasing Zurich Cares, a forest conservation and restoration project that Zurich Malaysia is actively involved in to protect key endangered tree species in Merisuli Sabah and save them from extinction.
Junior Cho, Country CEO/Head of Zurich Malaysia, said, “We firmly believe that our actions today pave the way for a brighter tomorrow. The “Care For What Matters” brand campaign is an extension of our ongoing efforts to support and care for people from all walks of life. It signifies our determination to create a brighter future for Malaysians that is not only financially secure but also socially and environmentally responsible”.
Urban Climate Resilience Program
As part of its commitment to the planet, Zurich Malaysia also announced the launch of the Urban Climate Resilience Program and introduced the parties who share the common goal of addressing climate issues and building climate resilience within urban communities.
Cho added, “We are thrilled to launch the Urban Climate Resilience Program in Malaysia and announce a meaningful three-year collaboration that aligns with Zurich’s sustainability ambitions as well as the core of our brand campaign. Through direct collaboration with the Z Zurich Foundation and the appointed global partners, the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group (C40) is set to combine efforts with Kuala Lumpur City Hall (KLCH), whilst the Resilient Cities Network (R-Cities) will join forces with Majlis Bandaraya Melaka Bersejarah (MBMB).”
Datuk Kamarulzaman Mat Salleh, Kuala Lumpur Mayor, said, “KL is beginning to see the devastating impacts of extreme heat and floods more frequently. As the local authority, I recognise it is important that Kuala Lumpur City Hall acts now to ensure a safe and resilient tomorrow, especially for our most vulnerable populations. In KL, we are always thinking ahead as we build a future where everyone can thrive even as our climate changes. In line with this as well as the spirit of Malaysia Madani, Kuala Lumpur City Hall is looking forward to partner with C40 and the Z Zurich Foundation to further strengthen our city’s climate resilience through the Urban Climate Resilience Program, which will be undertaken with deep community engagement in selected neighbourhoods in our city.”
Datuk Hj. Shadan Hj. Othman, Melaka Mayor, said, “Being a historic city with UNESCO World Heritage status, we recognise the importance of building community resilience to carry our cultural heritage forward in the face of climate challenges. Thus, it is with great enthusiasm that the City of Melaka is joining the new Urban Climate Resilience Programme. I look forward to working closely with the Resilient Cities Network and the Z Zurich Foundation to create a more sustainable and resilient future for our communities, our city, and our country.”
The objective of this programme is to build sustainable, resilient communities that can withstand, recover from, and thrive in the face of climate-related disasters. Zurich Malaysia aims to be at the forefront of bringing impactful changes in the adaptation of systems in selected cities in Malaysia, ensuring enhanced support for those who are vulnerable.
