Dato’ Haji Mohd Zain Hassan, aged 56, male, a Malaysian, currently helms the country’s largest solid waste management company, Alam Flora Sdn. Bhd. (“Alam Flora”) and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Alam Flora Environmental Solutions Sdn. Bhd. (“AFES”). Alam Flora is one of the three concessionaires appointed by the Government under the full-privatisation of solid waste management in the country.
Dato’ Hj. Mohd Zain graduated in Technology in Education from Universiti Sains Malaysia and obtained a diploma in English as a Second Language from Universiti Malaya. He later enrolled in the Executive Education Programme from Harvard Business School.
Going beyond waste management and integrated environmental solutions, both Alam Flora and AFES, play an integral role in the development of the country’s environment sector, in support of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (“SDG”) and the country’s National Cleanliness Policy.
With over 20 years of hands-on experience serving various positions in Alam Flora, from field operations to top management, he currently leads a strong team of more than 9,000 workers who are responsible for the cleansing and collection of solid waste in its concession areas of Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya and Pahang Darul Makmur. He was also instrumental in Alam Flora’s previous venture into the Middle East, namely Kingdom of Bahrain and Abu Dhabi, UAE.
Prior to Alam Flora, he was the Deputy General Manager at E-Idaman Sdn. Bhd., one of the three solid waste management concessionaires in Malaysia.
In recognition of his years of dedication and able stewardship in leading Alam Flora and serving the communities through managing and reducing solid waste with minimal environmental impact, he was conferred with the Darjah Indera Mulia Pahang (DIMP) by the state of Pahang in 2017, which carries the title Dato’.
