Malaysia Among Asia’s Net Zero Champions

Dateline 2022-05-20, The ASEAN Post:

All is not doom and gloom in Southeast Asia’s race to Net Zero. In many countries in the region, the private sector is actively leading the way by setting ambitious targets to decarbonize swiftly.

In Malaysia for instance, the Sunway Group is fiercely committed to achieving its Net Zero carbon emissions targets by 2050 in line with the Southeast Asian country’s 12th Malaysia Plan; with its Prime Minister pledging the ASEAN member state’s full commitment to achieving its target of becoming a carbon-neutral nation by as early as 2050.

In 2020, the group became one of the first few Malaysian companies to pledge support to the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), demonstrating its transparency in reporting its risk and opportunities related to climate change.
