Dear Aiena Nuriena,
BMCC Christmas Networking in Johor.
The inaugural Christmas Networking event in Johor was held on 7 December, with YB Lee Ting Han, Johor State EXCO for Investment, Trade and Consumer Affairs, as our guest of honour.

Our guests were attired impeccably, following our Red, White, and Green theme. The evening also allowed our guests to create new networks and reconnect with old acquaintances. After such a busy year, it is lovely to see our Members and friends in Johor taking it easy and catching up with one another during the event.

BMCC would like to express our appreciation to all our Members and friends for their participation in the Christmas celebration and their support of the event.

Bursa Malaysia launched Malaysia's first voluntary carbon market last Friday with the introduction of the Bursa Carbon Exchange (BCX or Carbon Exchange) at an event officiated by the Minister of Natural Resources, Environment & Climate Change, YB Tuan Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad. The BCX is the world's first Shariah-compliant carbon exchange, expanding the product universe for ESG and Shariah-compliant goods.

Bursa Carbon Exchange is aimed to enable businesses to exchange voluntary carbon credits from climate-friendly initiatives and solutions in order to offset their emission footprint and achieve climate goals. The BCX will assist Malaysia in achieving its goal of net zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2050, while speeding Corporate Malaysia's transition to a green economy and satisfying global needs for a sustainable supply chain.

Developers and proponents of projects who are interested in supplying carbon credits for the auction and Bursa Carbon Exchange are invited to submit their interest. Similarly, corporate buyers that wish to acquire carbon credits and participate in the auction are urged to register their interest by downloading the onboarding forms at https://bcx.bursamalaysia.com or bcx@bursamalaysia.com.
