Kuala Lumpur, 5th May 2020 – EcoKnights is proud to announce the publication of their 2019 Impact Report – a comprehensive and in-depth record of the impact-driven works that details the programs EcoKnights has delivered in the field of environmental sustainability together with their partners.
This report is designed to ensure greater organizational transparency and that the positive social, environmental, and economic impacts achieved from these works can be replicated in the future.
According to President and Founder Dr Yasmin Rasyid, the 2019 report provides a more in-depth analysis when compared to previous years. This is done by including more indicators to measure the impact of EcoKnights’ interventions to empower sustainable living.
“This is part of our evolving methodology that we use to help improve the way we quantify and qualify our efforts,” she said.
“It helps show transparency in our work, who we work with, how we work with them, and so forth. By doing this, we hope that we can formulate strategies and efforts that can make a bigger collective impact on sustainability in the country.”
She added that the 2019 Impact Report will give readers an understanding of how to start collaborating with EcoKnights.
Program Director Fadly Bakhtiar said the Impact Report is a testament to the milestones achieved by the organization through the hard work of its youth-led team.
“Notable achievements include restructuring our organisation to five main pillars, each focusing on key aspects of sustainability initiatives,” he said.
“We also improved our overall project management processes in planning, implementation, data analysis, and reporting. Consequently, you will see a huge improvement to our key indicators of progress in the 2019 Impact Report as compared to 2018.”
EcoKnights’ achievements in 2019 include:
In addition to these accomplishments, a standout feature in this year’s Impact Report is the Monthly Report Milestones which recognizes over 150 sustainability-driven projects executed by EcoKnights in 2019 together with its dedicated partners.
The report also features personal testimonies from over 40 EcoKnights team members, who average 23 years of age, on how their time at EcoKnights has helped shape them into future leaders.
While 2019 was a largely successful one for EcoKnights, the year ahead is riddled with challenges and uncertainties due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
“The global pandemic is forcing everyone to rethink how to move forward as a society, including EcoKnights, which has reinvented itself to continue empowering sustainable living even in the present realities of self-isolation and social distancing,” says Fadly.
“However, we must continue to influence people to live sustainably, even with the new norms. To do so, we have ventured into the digital space by creating new online initiatives that focus on introducing sustainability to a wider audience.”
This includes KLEFFlix – Malaysia’s first eco-themed online streaming service – designed to raise environmental awareness and whose launch was supported by the new Ministry of Environment and Water.
Other digital initiatives include the School of Sustainability Online Series and ‘suSTAYnability AT HOME’ campaign which aims to educate and encourage people to adopt sustainable living, as well as our Digital Fundraising platform to finance important environmental and social projects.
Further details for these initiatives can be viewed at EcoKnights’ recently revamped website: https://ecoknights.org.my/
It has been a trying but rewarding 2019 for EcoKnights which, moving forward, will continue to hold firm to its vision of empowering people to live sustainably.
