Reducing Scope 2 Emissions in Malaysia with Green Electricity

Scope 2 emissions refer to indirect greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) that arise from the generation of purchased energy (e.g. electricity, steam and cooling). The Malaysian government has introduced various initiatives for companies to reduce their Scope 2 emissions, such as through energy conservation measures, energy efficient methods, or renewable energy.

In November 2021, the government launched the Green Electricity Tariff (GET) Programme to allow individuals and companies to nominally purchase renewable electricity from Tenaga Nasional Berhad without having to install their own solar PV panels.

In this article, Amin Abdul Majid, Chelsea Lim Chaw Sea, and Sonia Soon Nea, of the Infrastructure, Energy and Utilities Practice Group of Zaid Ibrahim & Co. (a member of ZICO Law) discuss how the GET Programme helps Malaysia reduce Scope 2 emissions.
