The Earth is getting warmer and climate change is directly impacting businesses! Carbon pricing has evolved unconsciously, consumer awareness on green business and sustainability has increased, and new markets are emerging. The time for climate action is now, as we transform business sustainability virtues in the next 30 years, i.e. halving global emissions by 2030 and reaching net zero by 2050, to meet the palatable two-degree temperature rise by the end of this century. Malaysia has pledged to reduce its carbon emission intensity by up to 45% by 2030, relative to its GDP from 2005 base levels. Businesses are a key stakeholder and play a pivotal role in the low carbon transition, and it is no different in Malaysia. There is an urgent need for business leaders to understand the value and importance of a future carbon-neutral world. The Race To Zero (R2Z) is a global campaign to rally leadership and support from businesses, cities, regions, investors for a healthy, resilient, zero-carbon recovery that prevents future threats, creates decent jobs, and unlocks inclusive, sustainable growth.
