Following on our NZRI report where Malaysia is ranked 21st out 0f 32 countries in reducing greenhouse emissions, Kasturi Nathan, Head of Governance & Sustainability at KPMG in Malaysia shares her thoughts about the need of binding laws in Malaysia to attain net zero carbon target.
She said while Malaysia has set strong green policy initiatives, Malaysia like many other countries, lack a binding law to make a net zero carbon target a reality.
“Out of 32 countries, only 9 have had a binding net zero commitment, under their national laws that places a legal obligations on their government to deliver. We clearly on that front, need to expedite and adapt net zero carbon and signing them into law. So legally binding targets and delivery capabilities are key measures in delivering net zero ambitions,” she further explained.
