CLIMATE AND ENERGY

Climate change is considered to be one of the biggest threats facing nature and humanity today. It is an undeniable, pervasive and insidious planetary crisis that affects every aspect of our lives and future.

MAJOR CONCERN

In order to avoid the devastating effects of climate change, global warming should stay well below a 2°Celsius increase compared to pre-industrial temperatures. To attain this objective, global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions need to be cut by at least 50 per cent in the coming decades. Changing climate change starts with us. Make behaviour changes to reduce human activities that cause climate change.

DEFORESTATION

Deforestation is responsible for 20% of the total global GHG emissions, and a significant part of our ecosystem and species loss. If emissions from deforestation are not curbed, the likelihood of success in preventing the dangerous effects of climate change is drastically reduced. Governments and the wide range of stakeholders must be effectively influenced to reduce these threats.

EARTH HOUR CAMPAIGN

With Earth Hour, building public awareness on the importance of nature and climate change is a priority. With more than 180 countries and territories coming together to highlight and invite action on the environmental issues that are most relevant to them. As global biodiversity declines at an unprecedented rate, this annual campaign takes on a localised effort of halting the loss of Malaysia’s rich biodiversity specifically to safeguard our freshwater.
