Climate change is no longer a distant concept. If we carry on our current emissions trajectory, we risk setting off climate tipping points which will be irreversible and catastrophic. Altering this trajectory requires nothing short of a large-scale transformation of the global economy—and this is no longer an option, but an imperative, to secure our futures.

Achieving net zero by 2050 will be a momentous task, one which will require a whole-of-nation approach, with coordination and collaboration across government, businesses, investors, and civil society.

The study finds that Malaysia is well positioned to achieve net zero with its extensive forest cover, access to sustainable and cost competitive renewable energy, green policy foundations, and strong green industry adjacencies. Net zero will do far more than address climate concerns: it will unlock huge economic opportunities through growth of the green economy, creating millions of new jobs and strengthening the country’s future with sustainable global competitive advantage.
