The Malaysia Climate Action Week (MCAW), organised by the BMCC and British High Commission, Kuala Lumpur (BHCKL), bade participants a fond farewell last Friday after five days of incisive discussions on climate action covering ESG principles, climate governance, sustainable energy, climate-smart cities, net zero supply chains and food supply. The event, which attracted close to 900 registrations, offered valuable insights from an impressive line-up of 36 experts and corporate leaders, and successfully set the scene for COP26 proceedings in Glasgow this week.
One of the key highlights of MCAW, the BMCC Climate Action Pledge, was launched on Day 4. Officiating the pledge, guest of honour Sam Myers, HM Deputy Trade Commisioner for Asia Pacific (Southeast Asia), Department for International Trade (DIT) said, “It is fantastic that the BMCC, aided by the British High Commission, Kuala Lumpur, with the crucial support of UN Global Compact Malaysia and Brunei (UNGCMYB), has initiated the BMCC Climate Action Pledge as a platform to encourage businesses operating in Malaysia to take your first steps or indeed demonstrate your leadership towards decarbonisation over the next 12 months. The pledge is really not just about the signing – that’s just the start of things. You are not alone. The Chamber and the network will provide help and expertise so that real progress will be made over the coming months.”
The BMCC wishes to convey our heartfelt thanks to our co-organiser BHCKL, our sponsors DDCAP Group, HSBC, ICAEW, IPMUDA Berhad and Smith & Nephew, our supporting organisations and our excellent speakers, panellists and moderators for making the first MCAW a resounding success.
