Prime Minister of Malaysia Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad launched “Malaysia’s Net Zero Carbon Pavilion” signifying the country’s participation at next year’s Expo 2020 Dubai.
The carbon emission calculation includes the embodied materials, construction process and operations within the Malaysia Pavilion for a six-month duration at Expo 2020 Dubai which will be held from October 2020 to April 2021.
Earlier this month, the Ministry of Energy, Science, Technology, Environment and Climate Change (MESTECC) unveiled the “Rainforest Canopy” pavilion concept and design, which is set to be a sustainable architecture with designs including energy efficiency features such as photovoltaic, natural ventilation, LED lightings and water efficiency fittings.
The Malaysia Pavilion touches on the theme of “Energising Sustainability” – focussing on Malaysia’s efforts and commitment in balancing economic progress with environmental concern. In line with the Paris Agreement (2016) and the Rio Earth Summit (1992), Malaysia aims to play her role in the fight against climate change.
