Shell Eco-marathon Asia in Malaysia cancelled due to haze
Jun 25, 2013
In light of the worsening air quality with the heavy haze in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Shell has taken the decision to cancel the Shell Eco-marathon Asia 2013, which was to take place from July 4 to 7 in the Malaysian capital.
The health and safety of the students, suppliers, contractors and our Shell volunteers have always been our highest priority in the organisation of the event, and we have cancelled this four day-long outdoor event to minimise exposure to the haze.
The Company recognises that a lot of work and effort have been put into the event by participating students from around the region as well as the Shell organising committee, and have made this decision in the best interest of the students and all those involved in the Shell Eco-marathon Asia.
Registered participants of the Shell Eco-marathon Asia 2013 have been informed of the cancellation and can contact Shell for further clarification at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Shell Eco-marathon Asia will recommence in February from 6th to 9th, 2014 in Manila.
