“As we received an overwhelming response of 145 applications, this indeed demonstrates the growing and confidence of businesses and institutions in Malaysia in adopting sustainable practices in their operations,” said Energy, Science, Technology, Environment and Climate Change Minister Yeo Bee Yin in her speech at the NEA gala dinner and awards presentation.
She added, greater efforts and commitment would also be undertaken to increase the capacity of Renewable Energy in our generation capacity through the existing programmes such as Net Energy Metering scheme and Large Scale Solar (LSS) programme.
As Malaysia had produced approximately 370 million tonnes of carbon dioxide, Yeo said much efforts needed to be done especially regarding the carbon footprint.
