We hope these recognitions will drive more local participation in adopting sustainable energy practices which will futureproof businesses,” said Minister of Energy and Natural Resources, Yang Berhormat Datuk Seri Takiyuddin Hassan.

“Malaysia’s ambition of having net-zero carbon emissions by 2050 is consistent with the AEA’s objectives. We are also converting various industries to alternative renewable energy sources from fossil fuels, putting us on track to fulfil global sustainability criteria,” added Yang Berhormat Datuk Seri Takiyuddin Hassan.

The award serves as a showcase for innovative ideas and techniques for efficient energy management practices, energy conservation, and productivity in local businesses and buildings.
