NET ZERO CARBON
As part of the Malaysia Pavilion’s commitment to energising sustainability, we launched Malaysia’s Net Zero Carbon Pavilion in the presence of the honourable Prime Minister of Malaysia, Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohammad on 10th October 2019.
Through this commitment, we aim to ensure that the Pavilion’s life-cycle greenhouse gas emissions from all sources add up to zero, or less.
To achieve this, we will be monitoring operational energy and water consumption; life-cycle impacts of construction, including materials extraction, transport to the site, installation and wastage, repair, replacement, refurbishment; and reusing of materials after the project is decommissioned.
The design and concept of The ‘Rainforest Canopy’ Pavilion will reflect this commitment via the use of energy efficiency features such as solar energy, natural ventilation, LED lightings and water efficiency fittings.
