Sarawak will become the first state in Malaysia to have legislation that would see industries, including oil and gas, operating in the state needing to comply with international requirements when the proposed Land Code (Amendment) Bill, 2022 is passed, said Datuk Sharifah Hasidah Sayeed Aman Ghazali.

The Deputy Minister in the Premier of Sarawak’s Department (Law, MA63 and State-Federal Relations) said these international requirements include reducing carbon emission intensity under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
