Minister of Natural Resources, Environment, and Climate Change, YB Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad who led the Malaysian delegation said “I hope that the success of our Malaysian participants in the AEA will be an inspiration to other industry players to embark in the adoption of sustainable energy practices, while contributing towards the country’s commitment to decarbonise.
“As ASEAN gears up efforts in its race to net zero, we urge more industries, corporations, and individuals to lead the way on climate action to inspire the adoption of sustainable energy practices. “At the national level, the Ministry of Natural Resources, Environment and Climate Change will continue its efforts to encourage the adoption of sustainable energy best practices, including the organisation of the NEA to recognise and to explore further opportunities to spur the uptake of
energy best practices,” he said.
