The Climate Pledge is a commitment to reach net-zero carbon by 2040, 10 years ahead of the Paris Agreement. —

PETALING JAYA: PKT Logistics Group has become the first Malaysian signatory to The Climate Pledge, which was co-founded in 2019 by Amazon and Global Optimism.

The Climate Pledge is a commitment to reach net-zero carbon by 2040, 10 years ahead of the Paris Agreement.

Through the Pledge, more than 450 signatories across 57 industries and 38 countries work together on initiatives that accelerate decarbonisation.

“We are immensely grateful to be the very first company in our nation to be part of this global initiative that recognises and fosters a shared dedication to net zero across borders,” said Datuk Seri Dr Michael Tio, group chief executive and managing director of PKT Logistics Group.

“We are excited about the prospects this platform brings, the opportunity to collaborate with like-minded organisations globally, and the chance to exchange knowledge and best practices for a better world.”

Signatories to The Climate Pledge commit to measuring and reporting greenhouse gas emissions on a regular basis, as well as implementing decarbonisation strategies in line with the Paris Agreement.

They are expected to achieve net-zero annual carbon emissions by 2040 through real business changes and innovations, as well as neutralising any remaining emissions with additional, quantifiable, real, permanent, and socially beneficial offsets.
