BUILDINGS contribute about 90% of the world’s carbon emissions, and thus represent the biggest opportunities for climate change mitigation through carbon reduction.

Universities have a special responsibility to arrest climate change through sustainable operations.

Management and Science University (MSU) achieved a Diamond-2 rating in the Sustainable Energy Development Authority (Seda) Malaysia Sustainable Energy Low Carbon Building Assessment 2020.

Recording 24.21% less emission against baseline measurements in 2019 — an annual savings of 5,646,661 kWh or 3,918.78 tonnes less carbon dioxide in 2020 — MSU is well on its way to supporting the government’s target of 40% to 45% less CO2 in 2030.

Presenting MSU president Prof Tan Sri Dr Mohd Shukri Ab Yajid with the university’s first green certification was Seda acting chief strategic officer Steve Anthony Lojuntin.

With the green pass, MSU emerged as the first private higher education institution in Malaysia to receive the Seda Diamond-2 rating.
