PRESENTATION OUTLINE
Introduction
The National GreenTech Policy
Government GT Initiatives
Implementation Challenges

Conclusion
2

To reduce carbon emission up to 40% in


terms of emission intensity of GDP
(Gross Domestic Product) by 2020
compared with its 2005 levels
3

TOWARDS A LOW CARBON ECONOMY


(i.e. usage of Green Technology as a solution towards the
issue of Global Warming)

Low Carbon Economy can be best


understood as the range of
activities which are materially
supported by the need to reduce
the release of GHG into the
atmosphere
Source : UN, Global Compact
4

Low carbon economy includes the use of low


carbon technologies (Green Technologies)
in the multitude of sectors and services
5

2.

Also the introduction of green tax breaks,


incentives, budget reforms as well removal of
6
harmful
subsidies

Also greening business and the markets through


7
sustainable
consumption and production.

GOVERNMENT INITIATIVES :
TOWARDS GREEN GROWTH

Green Technology refers to products, equipment


or systems which satisfy the following criteria:
It minimises the degradation of the
environment;
It has a zero or low green house gas
(GHG) emission;
it is safe for use and promotes healthy
and improved environment for all forms
of life;
it conserves the use of energy and

GREEN TECHNOLOGY ROADMAP A JOURNEY TO


OUR GREEN FUTURE

The Malaysian Government is working on the Green Technology Roadmap to guide


Malaysia in becoming a low carbon green growth economy.

For a start, the Government has conducted a baseline study for green technology in
Malaysia which was completed in June 2011.

16The baseline study comprises the following sectors :


16 Energy, Waste Water, Building, Transportation, Manufacturing

and ICT.

TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT

A financial incentive scheme for local companies to kick


start their business in the GT industry (both users and
producer categories)
17Increases Domestic Direct Investment (DDI) and R&D in the
area of GT

GREEN TECHNOLOGY FINANCING SCHEME (GTFS)


RM3.5 billion soft loan
Up to RM50.0 million for producers and RM10.0 million for
users of green technology
2% interest subsidy by the government
60% government guarantee
Effective until 31 December 2015
18Approx RM 1.202 billion has been disbursed ( Jun 2013)
So far 88 companies have benefited

GREEN TOWNSHIPS

The development of a Low Carbon City Framework (LCCF) that


takes into consideration the FRAMEWORK and ASSESSMENT of
a Green Township

Provides the Local Councils & Private entities a superior document as a basis for the
development of a green township action plan & road map.

Provides a comprehensive guide towards measuring carbon emissions based on


sectors which enables the setting of a baseline and reduction targets.

19

GREEN TOWNSHIPS

The LCCF document emphasizes on the GHG component.


It will complement with the Green Neighborhood Guideline (GNG) developed by the
20Town & Country Planning Department that emphasizes on the livability component.

20

SUSTAINABLE CITIES

GREEN TOWNSHIPS IN
PUTRAJAYA AND CYBERJAYA

To develop both Putrajaya & Cyberjaya as pioneer townships in Green


Technology, as a showcase for the development of other townships in the country.

This project demonstration will utilize the LCCF tool to develop a carbon emission
baseline as well as the Low Carbon City Action Plan.

21

ECO LABELS AND GREEN PUBLIC PROCUREMENT

The Ministry in collaboration with SIRIM has initially developed Criteria Documents
for Eco Labels, initiating it with the following products i.e.Cement, Ballpoint Pen &
Luminaires.
22The

Ministry is also working with SIRIM in developing a guideline for Green Public
Procurement .

ECO LABELS AND GREEN PUBLIC PROCUREMENT

The development of Criteria Documents for Eco Label products

The development of Green Public Procurement Guidelines

Registered with the Global Eco Label Network (GEN)

Provides a stepping stone for the development of eco labels in the county with a
conducive testing laboratory.

Initiate a comprehensive public procurement mechanism that can be adopted by the


private sector.

Promotes the use of Environmentally Preferable Purchasing (EPP) and eco labels
towards achieving a Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP) habits.

23

GREEN ICT

The Government through the Malaysian Administrative, Modernization and Management


Planning Unit (MAMPU), Prime Ministers Department has introduced the Green IT guideline for
the public sector.

Green ICT is the study and practice of designing, manufacturing, using and disposing of
computers, servers and associated subsystems such as monitors, printers, storage
devices and networking & communications systems in an efficient and effective manner
with minimal or no impact on the environment.

GREEN TOPICS
The government is in the
midst of integrating green
topics in the national
education system

The government is also


looking at increasing the
modules and courses related
to green technology in
institutes of higher education
in both Public and Private

attracted more than 60,000 visitors.

34

Challenges

Changing the mindset of the public;


Creating the ecosystem, value chain and supply chain
Regulatory and enforcement framework;
Lack of R&D efforts;
Duplication of tasks and jurisdictional implications; and
Political will.

35

IN CONCLUSION

The government has identified low carbon economy as the driver


of economic growth for this decade.

The Malaysian government is actively putting in place the


ecosystem, value system and supply chain to create a vibrant low
carbon economy. The winning of hearts and mind of the public is
also aggressively pursued.
