Low Carbon Cities Framework And Assessment System For Cities In Malaysia

Posted on March 6, 2012. Filed under: Environment and Livelihoods |

(Bernama) — The Ministry of Energy, Green Technology and Water and Malaysian Green Technology Corporation have developed two systems to facilitate the development of low carbon cities in Malaysia.

The ministry’s senior undersecretary for the green technology sector, Rosli Abdullah said the first, which was the Low Carbon Cities Framework (LCCF), served as a guide to be used on pertinent areas (elements) that contribute to the reduction of green house gas (GHG) emissions.

“This information enables users to identify areas which could be targets for an overall carbon reduction,” he said at the Apec Low Carbon City Workshop here Tuesday, which was opened by the ministry’s Secretary General Datuk Loo Took Gee.

Rosli said the second, the Low Carbon Cities Assessment system, was an in built carbon calculator which assists the user in determining their current baseline by applying the various strategies recommended in the framework to achieve a reduction level.

“The calculator will then be used again to reassess the carbon emission levels to see if the user has obtained a good reduction level,” he added.
