UN climate change meet a good yardstick for Johor Green Deal progress, says exco man

PASIR GUDANG: The coming UN Climate Change Conference (COP29) 2024 will be an important event to measure how Johor Green Deal initiatives can be implemented and strengthened, says Datuk Seri Hasni Mohammad.

The sustainability committee chairman said it is crucial for the state to get updates on the initiatives by other foreign countries in implementing their sustainability projects in line with the Paris Agreement.

“We introduced the Johor Green Deal during the Asia-Pacific Climate Week 2023 (APCW 2023) in November, which also coincided with COP28 held in Dubai.

“Our green deal is similar to what has been introduced in other states, such as the Penang Green Council and Selangor Green Council, but with a more specific target of immediately implementing what has been agreed upon in the Paris Agreement.

“This includes keeping long-term global warming within 1.5 degrees Celsius, so we need to go there to see what countries like the United States and China have done and what we can bring back to Johor,” he said.

Earlier, Hasni attended the officiating ceremony of surfactor Asia Pacific's switching-on ceremony for solar energy supply to its plant in the Pasir Gudang Industrial Area here on Thursday (April 25).

COP29 will be held in Baku, Azerbaijan from Nov 11 to 22.
