JOHOR BAHARU: The government is to introduce the Environment Performance Index (EPI) in June to gauge Malaysia’s level of success in reducing carbon dioxide emission.

Natural Resources and Environment Minister Datuk Seri Douglas Uggah Embas said every state would have its own EPI and the data would be compiled for the whole country and published annually.

“Right now, only Kuala Lumpur has the EPI. Other large cities, such as Johor Baharu and George Town, do not have it,” he told reporters after launching a campus sustainable programme at Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM), here.

Uggah said having the EPI for the whole country would provide a clear picture of carbon dioxide emission in Malaysia.
