Private Sector Engagements with Key Stakeholders “CAN Malaysia Achieve Net Zero Emissions by 2050?”
The intention is to provide a platform to solicit feedback on the viability of a national net zero emissions target by 2050 and to assess the need for a multi stakeholder platform for climate action in the country driven by the net zero target. The role of the platform would be to inform policy and provide signalling for the private sector.
