Malaysia has committed to reduce the emissions intensity by 35 per cent in 2030 as specified in its Intended Nationally Determined Contribution (INDC) under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). One of the effective strategies to achieve the target is by having an efficient energy management system in buildings and implementation of green technology. Therefore, the collaboration between UiTM and MGTCCC will be the first step towards meeting the climate change goals set by the government of Malaysia.
