Sun Life Malaysia Sets Malaysia Book of Records for Most Green Energy Generated with Sustainability Bicycle

A healthier earth, a healthier you!
It was a record-setting and memorable day for Sun Life Malaysia as the Company has been listed in the Malaysia Book of Records for the 'Most Green Energy Generated with Sustainability Bicycle'. The remarkable record was set during Sun Life Malaysia's 'A Healthier Earth' event held at Publika Shopping Gallery last weekend. Sun Life Malaysia Assurance Berhad and Sun Life Malaysia Takaful Berhad (collectively Sun Life Malaysia), a life insurance and Family Takaful provider respectively, aims to empower Malaysians to live a healthier, sustainable and brighter lives.

Did you know throughout 2019, the Company placed sustainability bicycles at all its Brighter Lives Roadshows in shopping malls and key events which saw positive responses from more than 7000 Malaysians pedalling away to generate a total of 2,500 Wh of electricity? The energy generated are then converted into monetary value amounting to RM2,750 to assist HOPE worldwide Malaysia, a charity organisation that focuses on helping the urban poor community with their center's electricity expenses.

The #AHealthierEarth event represents the culmination of a series of sustainability and community outreach initiatives focused on bringing brighter lives to Malaysians, a great effort by Sun Life Malaysia. Throughout the year, the Company also successfully impacted many Malaysians through workout sessions and free health screenings for the public and health awareness programs for the underprivileged.

During the event, Sun Life Malaysia reimbursed RM7090 (equivalent to 10months' worth of electricity expenses) to 10 underprivileged beneficiaries for their consistent participation in the health programmes organised by HOPE.

Raymond Lew, CEO and President/Country Head of Sun Life Malaysia said, "As a life insurance and family takaful provider, it is our unwavering commitment to ensure all Malaysians have adequate financial protection for their future peace of mind and to ultimately, enjoy a better quality of life. This #AHealthierEarth event is the perfect encapsulation of that commitment and we hope it will inspire more Malaysians to play a proactive role in living healthier lives and safeguarding the long-term future of themselves and our planet."

The event was graced by Sun Life Malaysia brand ambassador, celebrity actor, Hairul Azreen. He said "I am very proud and happy to be a part of today's meaningful event. I hope that more Malaysians will be inspired by Sun Life Malaysia to live more sustainably and healthier for the long term."
