››› Message

H.E. Mr. Luc Vandebon Head of Delegation of the European Union to Malaysia The EU will again be an important actor at the 2012 International Green Technology and Eco-Product Exhibition and Conference in Malaysia (IGEM). The EU Pavilion this year will boast over 50 companies from 9 EU countries surpassing our participation in 2011 and for the third time, the EU will be the single largest exhibitor at the Fair. Our increasing presence time after time at IGEM is not by chance; it is a result of our increasingly close cooperation with the Government of Malaysia and its private sector throughout the year. Of note, in April the EU-Malaysia Chamber of Commerce & Industry, organised our first EU-supported trade mission to the Czech Republic and Poland. In addition to presenting commercial opportunities to the participating Malaysian companies, it was also a chance for Government officials to gain insights as regards the expertise, experience and the knowledge held by European administrations in waste management and recycling. Similarly, this 3rd edition of the publication “Green Technology from Europe” aims to build awareness of the EU’s prowess in green technologies. It is a reflection of our wish to engage with Malaysia as a green technology trading partner and a destination for green tech investment. This is in line with the outcome of the UN Rio+20 Conference where it was acknowledged that greening the economy is essential to promote long term equitable growth, decent jobs, resource efficiency and human health. Indeed greening the economy provides benefits for all, regardless of the level of development of a country or the structure of its economy. To meet the sustainable development challenge, the EU is putting its industry on a development path fuelled by innovation. Our green industry has grown from a specialised and small part of the economy to become the centrepiece of current EU industrial policy; renewable energy, smart grid technology, electric & hybrid transportation are just some of the technologies which are being undertaken. Success will require smart engagement with the private sector and also support of events such as IGEM. The efforts of the Government of Malaysia in this sense are also laudable. It is stimulating debate about the business – as well as the environmental – wisdom of green technologies; it is elaborating various legislative projects to increase resource efficiency and is looking to set high targets in order to lower green house gas emissions. I congratulate the Ministry of Energy, Green Technology & Water for playing a key role in these initiatives. And as my predecessor has done before me, I thank Minister Chin for facilitating and participating in our many other cooperation activities throughout the year. During my mandate in Malaysia I will be keen to build on and proud to embrace the EU’s commitment to cooperate with Malaysia in green technology.

Message ‹‹‹

YB Dato’ Sri Peter Chin Fah Kui Minister of Energy, Green Technology and Water, Malaysia I am proud to welcome new and returning participants to the third International Green Technology and Eco Products Exhibition and Conference Malaysia (IGEM). The return of the EU Pavilion as one of the largest contingents at IGEM for the third year is a positive affirmation of the EU’s continued commitment towards continuous growth and cooperation with Malaysia in the area of Green Technology. For the third year, the Right Honorable Prime Minister of Malaysia, Dato’ Sri Mohd Najib bin Tun Haji Abdul Razak will officially grace the opening of IGEM 2012, reflecting the Government’s interest in Green Technology as the way towards sustainable development and economic growth for the nation. The theme for IGEM 2012 ‘GreenTech for Growth’, reflects the development of the Green Technology market in Malaysia, showcasing current green technology solutions in eco-products and services as well as highlighting the current initiatives undertaken in research and development. I commend EUMCCI for organizing the Green Financing Seminar, which will be held for the first time at IGEM this year. This international Best Practices Seminar featuring high-level experts and trainers from Luxembourg, United Kingdom, France, USA, The Netherlands, South Africa, Singapore and Malaysia, will provide insights into the international dimensions of green finance and how it has contributed to the growth of green economies and revolutionised banking industries, regionally and globally. Through the conference, award and exhibition at IGEM 2012, Malaysia, through my ministry would like to foster the creation and development of a new cluster of green business practitioners for the growth the green economy in this country. In this respect, Malaysian entrepreneurs and businesses should grab this opportunity to find suitable partners and form smart alliances and partnerships in green business. Being a developing nation, Malaysia needs foreign assistance and investments to nurture and grow our green industries. We are adopters of technology and thus foreign technology is also needed. To join the league of economies that have made ‘eco’ or ‘green’ businesses sustainable, support from key industry palters will be of paramount importance to ensure these initiatives are a success. Malaysia continues to recognise the remarkable achievements in Europe and the continuing progress that has been made in the EU particularly in terms of climate change and the sustainable management of resources. We hope to continue to share and learn best practices from the EU in sustainability and in other areas such as green financing and developing the role of green technologies in business. I would like to take the opportunity to call upon all industry players to work together more closely and to be more innovative in realizing the global call to green technology. I urge all parties to rise to the challenge and to play their roles in supporting the development of a green economy to the full. We need to promote the use of ecofriendly and green technology wherever possible, for it is only through our collective, consistent and concerted efforts that we can turn our green vision into a green reality.

Green Technology From Europe 2012

Foreword ‹‹‹

Thomas Brandt Head of Environment, Energy and Green Technology (EEGT) Committee, EUMCCI Europe is just amazing in its great commitment to a sustainable future. ‘Smart European Countries’ exchange renewable energy with ‘Smart Grids’, based on supply and demand between countries depending on their daily peak and low renewable energy supply. Many countries are even surpassing their targets on renewable energy year-by-year. The number of ‘Smart (European) Cities’, attracting residents with energy selfsufficiency and 100% renewable energy reach is increasing and ‘Smart Homes’ are the talk of the day. The famous ‘passive houses’ (producing as much energy as they use) are becoming outdated by the new benchmark of ‘active houses’, which produce more energy than needed and supply the national grid. And while you are at work, your washing machine at home automatically turns on at exactly the time when the electricity cost is at the day’s lowest. These are no longer ‘science fiction’ future scenarios – they are green reality in Europe! And finally corporate business partners are selected by the people just as federal governments are elected; by their commitment to sustainability and a greener future. Malaysia has embarked on the right path by introducing the FiT system, a system which has been successfully chosen by over 60 countries worldwide. By the end of 2012 Germany will have 1 million independent power producers and these individual residences, farmers, industrial/office buildings, as project companies, will earn money by ‘feeding into the grid’, as they ‘power’ the economy. Germany is only one of many European benchmark examples for Green Technology and remarkable Green Policies. And its striking that Malaysia in fact, has more potential for Renewable Energy supply than most European nations have. Be ‘smart’ and join the European Malaysian Chamber and its most agile monthly ‘Green Technology’ committee and meet our European exhibitors at 2012 IGEM.

››› Green Technology – Policy Recommendations by EUMCCI EEGT Committee 1.1 Energy, Environment and Green Technology The Country’s Future Lies in the Green Field Malaysia’s abundance and good supply of fossil energy resources have served the country for decades in attracting foreign investments, thus becoming a benchmark example for many others. The attractive infrastructure of low-priced energy has aided the country to a large extent in becoming an international centre of excellence for the manufacturing industries, with many of the world’s largest corporations establishing their largest production facilities in the country. Malaysia has enjoyed a period of tremendous wealth and prosperity. During this dynamic period of rapid economic and population growth however, the shadow side of the development, for example long-term energy security and an appropriate waste, water and/or sewerage management system has been largely neglected. Depleting oil and gas resources will push energy prices considerably higher and Malaysia will not be spared. This is already an accepted certainty which is of considerable concern because Malaysia is heavily reliant on hydrocarbon fuel for powering its industries and services. In 2011, Peninsular Malaysia’s electricity supply was generated from gas (45.1%), oil (2.5%), distillate (2.5%), hydro (5.8%), coal (~43%) and renewable energy (~1%). Hence the energy sector is one of the most urgent topics. In addition, per capita CO 2 emission has increased by 226% since 1990, with Malaysia’s waste recycling rate standing at 5% - extremely low compared to many developed countries with recycling rates of often more than 50%. Lost chances and opportunities in recent decades The great proverb ‘We do not inherit the Earth from our ancestors. We borrow it from our children’ has been overlooked in the past. Despite or perhaps, because of the recent few decades of prosperity, the country’s most valuable assets, the fossil resources of oil and gas, are nearing depletion in less than one generation. Incomes from these assets have been used in consumptive ways and government budgets are largely dependent on this soon to be depleted source. The country and its current generation lives on yesterday-built energy resources and hardly any of this income has been invested to secure a sustainable energy supply and security for future generations. The ‘Fifth Fuel Policy’ to target diverse energy resources for power regeneration was successfully introduced in 2001 with the aim of having a higher share of Renewable Energy (RE). Nevertheless, the results during the first years were disappointing. Until today, Malaysia, with only 1% share of grid-connected renewable energy in the country’s energy mix, is far behind the RE levels of most industrial countries and even most of the less developed neighbours in the region. Nevertheless the overall targets with 6% of Renewable Energy (RE) by 2015 and 15% RE share by 2020 are attainable. Green Technology as key driver of the future economic growth in Malaysia Europe’s development of an entire new industry segment with immense future potential, the Green Technology field, is a great example for Malaysia to likewise develop a new future growth industry. This is consistent with the country’s aims to achieve a high-income status and to focus more strongly on the services sector. Green technologies could and should become a new future growth sector to generate

Green Technology – ‹‹‹ Policy Recommendations by EUMCCI EEGT Committee

sustainability, secure economic growth as well as to solidify the country’s international position and reputation. To become outstanding in the field of Green Technology and to claim, at least, a regional leadership, Malaysia needs to gain much ground. In 2011, Malaysia was the world’s No 3 manufacturing hub for solar cells and solar modules. However, the country has hardly leveraged on this great potential and has yet to take strategic measures to develop a world-level industry downstream. We believe that next to KETTHA all the other relevant ministries, especially MITI and the relevant industry associations like FMM, and associations for the palm oil industry and the solar industry have to grasp the chances and responsibility to develop a new green corporate sector with great employment opportunities. Introduction of the Feed in Tariff system The introduction of the Feed in Tariff (FiT) system was the right move by the government to grow a more sustainable energy future and allow a higher share of Renewable Energy. That the given quota was taken up in some areas within hours should be understood as a strong industry call to increase the quota quickly or to abolish the quota entirely. The latter would require bold political backing and a strong financial commitment. Year to Year Results Looking into recent years, the “Green Agenda” has advanced significantly with KeTTHA and many others spearheading the development, including the Green Tech Malaysia Corporation which has been trusted to foster private sector development . Many major political and legal frameworks have been established or are in the process of being drafted during the coming months. The International Green Technology & Eco Products Exhibition & Conference (IGEM) was launched in 2010 and has become a major platform for exchange whereby the EU with its active member states demonstrates its leadership in RE & EE technologies and expertise. The EU-Pavilion contributed the largest overall number of exhibitors in 2010 as well as 2011. In October at IGEM 2012, the EU pavilion will be host to over 50 companies from 9 EU countries. On the flip side of the coin, neither the tremendous increase in various green tech-related symposia, workshops and seminars nor the given policies and acts, have resulted a considerable increase of renewable energy share. In this respect, Malaysia lags behind its regional neighbours. Despite being third in the global production of solar cells and modules, Malaysia has not built a world-class supply chain for the renewable energy industry. And it is particularly striking when visiting last year’s world largest Solar Trade Fair in Munich, Germany; that of the 2300 exhibitors listed, not a single Malaysian company was registered. This year MATRADE’s support scheme is the first step into the right direction. Europe: A global Green Tech leader and partner Europe is considered overall world leader in Green Technology policy incentive schemes products as services and therefore the perfect match for Malaysia. European technologies are much admired and in the highest demand around the globe. Thus, Europe is committed to contribute much to the identification and development of Green Technology as a key driver of future economic growth in Malaysia.

Another great challenge for Malaysia is capacity building in all the relevant Greentech areas, the private sector, as well as relevant ministries and industry associations. We believe the education sector has great potential for partnerships with partners from the EU. The EUMCCI EEGT sub Committees Energy Efficiency, Green Buildings, Renewable Energy, Waste and Water are active and cooperative partners for exchange of information and solution providers to the private sector, the Malaysian Government and further related stakeholders. The EUMCCI EEGT Committee builds on the great partnership with Malaysia’s green tech partners with a wide spectrum of activities such as, accompanying the Minister in Europe in organizing Delegations to Europe,business luncheons, exchange of information and expertise with Malaysian ministries, as well as IGEM and other activities. 2011’s EUMalaysia Business Greentech Platform is a perfect example of the dialogue exchange between the EU and Malaysia, be it by the government or the corporate sector.

1.1.1 Renewable Energy Progress towards energy sustainability and security In EUMCCI’s Trade Issues and Recommendations 2010/2011, the EEGT Committee made several recom­ mendations including developing a comprehensive renewable energy (RE) policy, introducing feed-in tariff (FiT) for RE generation, increasing limit for RE projects from then maximum 10MW and introducing Smart Grid technologies. Following these recommendations, we are encouraged to observe promising progress in the sector such as implementation of the RE Act and FiT, increased in the maximum size of RE projects to 30MW and several smart grid initiatives undertaken by the utility providers. In 2010, we expanded our recommendations to include large scale thermal power and recommended that new thermal plants be equipped with the best available efficiency that is economically viable. We are pleased to observe that the two coal-fired power plants scheduled for completion in 2025/2016 will be equipped with the latest and highly efficient supercritical steam plant technology. Also, the impending development of several gas-fired power plants is expected to utilise efficient and proven advanced technologies. We are encouraged to note that Malaysia is moving in the right direction towards strengthening her energy sustainability and security and towards her aspirations to voluntarily reduce carbon emission intensity to up to 40% of GDP by the year 2020 compared to 2005 levels. Strengthening the Growth of RE Annual Target for RE Malaysia has set too modest an annual target for RE. In fact, the quota for solar PV for the period 2012-2014 was almost fully taken up. Recommendation Increase the given quota and address the balance between the four technologies in the short term. We propose to increase quotas for popular technologies, such as solar PV and increase if possible the tariffs

10 Green Technology From Europe 2012

Green Technology – ‹‹‹ Policy Recommendations by EUMCCI EEGT Committee

for the most available sources such as biomass (palm oil industry). For the medium term, we propose to increase the overall quota with corresponding increases in funding for RE power generation by increasing levy from the current 1% of the electricity bills, developing a mechanism that allow environmentally consciencious consumers to procure green electricity either indirectly or directly from RE power generators and introducing a carbon tax that can be used to fund the FiT. FiT Eligible RE Technologies The FiT schedule in the RE Act lists only 4 eligible technologies, namely Solar PV, Biomass, Biogas and Mini-hydro. There are more RE technologies with potential to be applied in Malaysia such as geothermal, tidal, fuel cells and excess power from Electric Vehicles. Applying FiT will increase the economic viability of these carbon-friendly technologies. Recommendation RE generation from geothermal resources is beginning to show real potential with the development of the 30MW geothermal plant near Tawau, and studies are being performed in several areas in the Peninsula Malaysia. Fuel cells can play an important role as energy storage to support demand when other RE generators are offline. Hydrogen can be harvested in the future from bio-refinery processes in agriculture and municipal solid waste sites in Malaysia. With properly planned collection network, the hydrogen can be utilized in fuel cells stations. We therefore propose to increase the FiT quota for other technologies and to expand the quota to include these technologies. We also recommend a specific R&D funding scheme for all types of RE technologies and for accelerateration of the commercialisation of RE start-ups. The Green Technology Financing scheme is not an appropriate funding scheme to commercialise RE start-ups. Other recommendations for RE EUMCCI would also like to highlight some of the recommendations made in 2010 and 2011 that have yet to be realised: • Encourage utilisation of latest technologies by providing attractive incentives and to increase eligibility of incentives to the entire value chain of the project • Regulate supply of biomass fuel • Explore and promote waste to energy technologies • Impose tax on “polluting” technologies and possibly transferring the tax to fund RE projects • Consider Smart Grid technology that intelligently regulates the power generation dispatch, in view of a more complex generation network for when more small RE plants come online and explore microgrid implementation in educational institutions, up-coming townships, tourist areas and islands • Allow significant holding of foreign equity in development of RE projects • Facilitate financing of RE projects utilising new technologies that are not yet present in Malaysia but that already have successful references in other countries • Import tax and duties exemptions for importation of RE technology products and solutions

››› Green Technology – Policy Recommendations by EUMCCI EEGT Committee 1.1.2 Energy Efficiency (EE) It is recognized that demand side management plays a large role in the necessary transformation towards an energy efficient economy but this requires transforming the way people think about energy. Malaysia is still hindered in this respect by low electricity tariffs which are enjoyed by all strata of society as well as the industrial and commercial sector. Merely offering positive incentives (e.g. rebates) alone without engaging disincentives at the same time (e.g. high electricity tariffs) will make for very slow adoption of energy efficiency. At the same time, it is also imperative that the drive to an EE economy is facilitated by management of energy efficiency in its totality. This requires a holistic roadmap where the national EE framework and targets are established. The national roadmap must demonstrate the various sector channels (e.g. transport, electrical appliance efficiency, construction) that feed into the roadmap with their respective EE targets, which will collectively meet the national targets. Because energy efficiency can be measured by a single indicator, i.e. carbon, all the diverse EE targets can be very easily unified under a single approach in the EE roadmap, providing the country with a structured and strategic policy instrument for achieving energy efficiency and making Malaysia competitive in the world market. Positive Developments • The drive to energy efficiency has gained more traction with a number of developments in the policy and implementation aspects. • There is a significant increase in the number of Energy Service Companies (ESCOs). The Malaysian Association of Energy Service Companies (MAESCO) has registered 67 members. • A working group, Entry Point Project 9 – Energy Efficiency for Oil, Gas and Energy Sector (Economic Transformation Program) has established several EE initiatives: – The SAVE rebate program for domestic consumers: This program kicked off in July 2011, offerings rebates to the public on the purchase of new energy saving appliances in three categories - refrigerators, air conditioners, and chillers. A total of RM41.22 million was allocated for this. – Energy Efficiency in government buildings: The government intends to lead the way in energy efficiency with an initial budget of RM22.3 million. A first step was taken in late 2011 when all government departments were to set the thermostats at 24°C. • The Malaysian Industrial Energy Efficiency Program, which is funded by UNIDO-GEF, has been in place since late 2011. • The National Energy Efficiency Master Plan (NEEMP) draft has been finalised and is scheduled to be endorsed by the Cabinet in 2012. • The Energy Efficiency Act (KETTHA) which was targeted for gazettement in 2013 may be delayed to 2014. The scope of the Act is not fully clear but will at the very least cover the energy performance of industrial and commercial appliances. • A Low Carbon Green Growth Act (KETTHA) is being proposed but its correlation with the EE Act and the NEEMP is unclear at this time.

12 Green Technology From Europe 2012

Green Technology – ‹‹‹ Policy Recommendations by EUMCCI EEGT Committee

Consumer appliances We laud the government’s SAVE rebate program but urge the government to persist with continued public awareness programs and to encourage more appliance manufacturers and retailers to undertake continuous promotion efforts. Recommendations Retailers put up permanent store displays informing the public of the energy savings from energy efficient lighting and appliances and to highlight the energy wastage of setting electrical appliances in the standby mode. Energy labeling be extended to all home appliance products without waiting for the Energy Efficiency Act as the manufacturers already have the information in hand. Information, Research and Development The Green Tech Corporation Malaysia (GTCM) was created to enhance the private sector development. It is extremely important that the GTCM fulfill its role in information coordination and dissemination in a more expeditious manner. Recommendations • Create a database of energy efficiency practices and industrial case studies on the website e.g. The Finance Ministry offices in Putrajaya were refitted for energy efficiency at about RM7 million with savings of RM3 million annually. There are also EE case studies from the ISO14001 certified companies in Malaysia. • Announce funding and program opportunities such as the recently started UNIDO-GEF funded Malaysian Industrial Energy Efficiency Program (MIEEP), EU funded Sustainable Consumption and Production policy program. • Publish an updated list of energy efficiency R&D projects and their outcomes on the website. • Provide updates on the green procurement initiative being established for government procurement • Establish coordination between GTCM and the DOE’s Clean Production unit which is developing green technology initiatives for SMEs. Manufacturing Industry, Service Industry There are many issues hampering the take-up of energy efficiency in the manufacturing and service industry, which is particularly magnified for the SMEs. Industrial SMEs defer their decision to implement EE projects due to the the lack of visibility on energy prices and the low Pay Back period or Internal Rate of Return for such EE projects. Industrial EE project funding does not benefit from direct investment incentives from the Government in addition to the import duty and tax incentives already established. Recommendations • Increase the energy tariff for the industrial and commercial sector in graduated quantums which will drive the move to energy efficiency in a shorter time. • Create a requirement that applications for industry or development loans must include an analysis of the energy efficiency of the proposed project.

13 Green Technology From Europe 2012

››› Green Technology – Policy Recommendations by EUMCCI EEGT Committee

• Dialogue with financial institutions to resolve the industry concerns on approving loans for energy efficiency projects. • To create policy and support EE projects with a co-funding investment portion – with a maximum cap - based on achieved savings and benchmarks. Transport and Fuel Efficiency The energy efficiency of the transport sector continues to be hampered by the same factors discussed in the 2011. However, it is noted that progress has occurred in commitments to improve public transportation, for example, construction works have already started on the Kelana Jaya – Putra Heights line extension and the Ampang Jaya – Putra heights line extension. There is also rising interest in hybrid vehicles with encouraging sales in 2011 and a road map for electric vehicles also been drafted. Recommendations • Commit to graduated targets for reducing the average CO 2 emissions of new vehicle models. • Compel all auto manufacturers to provide CO2 emission data (using standardized units) for their vehicle models. • Commit to a target for the adoption of Euro 5 fuel (petrol and diesel) by 2013. • Open up opportunities for adoption of electric vehicles and the necessary infrastructure. • To establish goals for fleet operators to migrate to fuel-efficient alternatives. Energy Service Company The number of experienced ESCOs is still limited and the various services offered are confusing for industrial and commercial users because the scope differs in terms of the role i.e. consulting, technology provider, operator as well as the type of equipment offered. Competencies and capabilities are also not easily ascertained. The energy audit service level provision is variable from one ESCO to the other and energy efficiency commitments are limited. In addition, complicated, non-standardised measurement and verification (M&V) of energy savings does not translate to key decision makers, such as lenders, owners and tenants. Recommendations • Develop an ESCO accreditation system and criteria for renewal, to classify ESCOs according to service scope • To establish standards for energy audit processes, to define energy audit service levels, and to define energy auditors qualification and compulsory registration Government agencies The custodial agency for driving the National Energy Efficiency Master Plan is at present unclear and it is of concern that this will delay the implementation of the NEEMP. The full contents of the NEEMP are also not yet known. It is uncertain whether the custodial agency will have the over-arching responsibility to expand the NEEMP to cover all public and private sectors.

14 Green Technology From Europe 2012

Green Technology – ‹‹‹ Policy Recommendations by EUMCCI EEGT Committee

Energy efficiency service outsourcing schemes on energy system operation or energy supply for public services such as hospitals, street lighting networks, universities are limited. The concept of public private partnership (PPP) with energy efficiency performance contracts and commitment on efficiency and savings has not been developed yet. Crucially, the stumbling block is the lack of a classification code for energy efficiency/management services. Government budgets cannot be approved and released without this code. Recommendations • Establish the custodial agency for the NEEMP as soon as possible and provide more stakeholder engagement for the NEEMP. • To develop Public Private Partnerships (PPP) for efficient energy technology provision and investment, that offer a long term concession scheme for energy service supply with a commitment on energy savings • To include in the PPP, an allowance for significant foreign share to attract Foreign Direct investment in Malaysia. • To confirm the government classification code for PPP projects that can provide the energy efficiency improvements to government buildings. • Create a mandatory program to replace all street lamps with energy efficient alternatives such as solar powered LEDs and to upgrade the traffic lighting system for low energy consumption. • Study the impact of demand response systems to reduce peak demand. • Provide the policy and incentives to introduce smart metering and associated advanced metering infrastructure and to promote the benefits of smart metering. • To consider time-of-use tariff models for the residential sector

1.1.3 Green Building and Sustainable Communities Green Building and Sustainable Communities aims to embody the principles of sustainable development i.e. environmental responsibility, social awareness and economic profitability, in the siting, design, building, maintenance, operation and renovation of buildings. EUMCCI endorses the Green Building movement as a great opportunity for Malaysia to make and accelerate changes in construction practice and technology, to reduce the environmental impacts of the built environment while creating places that are healthier and more satisfying for the Malaysian society. Over the last three years, Malaysia has experienced a concerted shift towards the development of green buildings. The demand continues to rise as environmental awareness grows and more companies embrace the practice of corporate social responsibility. Other drivers are governmental support in the form of fiscal incentives and the growing evidence of green building benefits. The Malaysia Green Building Confederation (MGBC) is a not-for-profit, non-governmental organisation established in April 2009. It is supported by two professional organisations: the Malaysian Institute of Architects (PAM) and the Association of Consulting Engineers Malaysia (ACEM). In May 2009, PAM and ACEM launched the Green Building Index (GBI), a voluntary scoring method for residential (RNC) and non­ residential new construction (NRNC) projects. GBI classifies construction projects in four categories i.e. Platinum, Gold, Silver or Certified, depending on the scores achieved. Evaluation is based on six key criteria: Energy Efficiency, Indoor Environment Quality, Sustainable Site Planning & Management, Material & Resources, Water Efficiency and Innovation.

15 Green Technology From Europe 2012

››› Green Technology – Policy Recommendations by EUMCCI EEGT Committee

The Non-Residential Existing Buildings (GBI-NREB) rating tool was launched in April 2010. To achieve GBINREB certification, old buildings need to improve their sustainability credentials after major renovations. 2011 saw the release of various green building assessment methods. In March 2011, Green Building Index Sdn Bhd released “GBI Township”, a tool that aims to facilitate discussions on how sustainable townships are planned, designed, built, operated and maintained. Core categories include: Climate, Energy and Water, Ecology & Environment, Community Planning & Design, Transportation & Connectivity, Building & Resources, Business & Innovation. The GBI Industrial tools for existing (GBI-IEB) and new constructions (GBI-INC) were also released in June 2011. In November 2011, the Cabinet of Malaysia approved a “Green Neighbourhood and Low Carbon City” framework and assessment system. The new assessment system aims to address climate change effectively via urban planning system and was developed by Ministry of Energy, Green Technology and Water (KeTTHa) with support from Malaysia Green Technology Corporation and Malaysian Institute of Planners. To increase certifications in the years ahead, the Malaysian Government has introduced incentives for building owners obtaining GBI Certification for buildings from 24 October 2009 until 31 December 2014. The incremental costs which qualify for tax exemption refer to the additional construction costs of a building, alteration, renovation, extension or improvement of an existing building. In addition, buyers who purchase GBI certified commercial buildings and residential properties from property developers are eligible for stamp duty exemption on the portion of the cost attributable to the acquisition of the GBI certificate. This incentive applies to sales and purchase agreements executed from 24 October 2009 to 31 December 2014. EUMCCI supports the adoption and ongoing development of GBI as a market-based green building transformation system that meets Malaysia’s requirements. The transition to sustainable construction practices is as much a business opportunity as a crucial response to the urgency and importance of environmental concerns and could alter the face of the Malaysian construction industry for the better. Issues • Green building in Malaysia focuses too often on new constructions rather than existing buildings. This is evident by the number of GBI certified renovations representing only 7% of the overall GBI certified projects despite the fact that old buildings represent the bulk of Malaysia’s commercial space • Although GBI has sections on Indoor Environment Quality (i.e. daylighting, ventilation, filtration systems, and the selection of low-volatile organic compound products in the building process), the main emphasis remains on energy efficiency. Unfortunately, at times this is at the expense the occupant’s health and comfort. GBI also neglects focusing on the selection of products (furnishings, cleaning products, etc.) procured during occupancy, all of which impact the indoor air quality • The GBI is developed specifically for the Malaysian tropical climate, environmental and developmental context, culture and social needs. However it neglects focusing on Malaysia’s specific sustainability concerns i.e. urban sprawl, deforestation, flooding, air and water pollution, the pedestrian network and highway traffic problems • GBI is a powerful tool in its ability to guide and accelerate the green building market. Special attention should be taken in its application to ensure that the guidance and recommendations provided do not replace creativity in design and do not undervalue non-quantifiable sustainability domains such as society and human comfort

16 Green Technology From Europe 2012

Green Technology – ‹‹‹ Policy Recommendations by EUMCCI EEGT Committee

• Complicated, non-standardised measurement and verification (M&V) of energy savings doesn’t translate to key decision makers, such as lenders, owners and tenants • The financial viability of green building projects is often compromised by the provision of the various subsidies for fossil fuels • Improving the efficiency of individual buildings and isolated developments represents only the tip of the green building “iceberg”. A stronger focus should be put on improving the sustainability of communities - especially communities in which Malaysians can work, shop, worship, learn and play near their homes; without having to drive long distances from residential areas to business districts, shopping centres, schools and other facilities • The GBI incentive scheme, while providing tax exemption on the incremental costs to all green building owners, is not sufficiently attractive for Gold and Platinum GBI buildings • The building services sector represented by designers, engineers and business consultants has an important role in green building practice; developing & disseminating information in passive design, resource efficient & clean technologies, healthy buildings and procurement of products & materials. However the GBI fiscal incentives cover only manufacturing and the supply chain (e.g. additional cost for materials), failing to mobilize R&D and capacity building Recommendations • Provide comprehensive training and exchange of experience and research on sustainable urban design building in higher education and for industry professionals, in order to ensure that this new market has the appropriate supply of skills and knowledge • Exchange experience and knowledge of European rating standards and within the sustainable construction industry. Foster international co-operation between higher education institutions, including between the EU and Malaysian academic institutions. Take advantage of the enormous European knowledge in creating quality spaces, with over 2000 years experience in responsible urban planning • Continuously review the experience with GBI ratings and the point allocations for different categories in terms of their effectiveness • Extend the GBI tool to cover renovations of residential buildings • Introduce mandatory energy certification for buildings, giving tenants and purchasers a clearer idea of the energy costs that they will face • Enhance tax incentives for Platinum rated GBI buildings, to support green building R&D by the development of world class green building benchmark projects • Accelerate the pace of improving existing buildings by making GBI incentives applicable also to tenants who do not own the building but have incurred the expenses to transform the building into a GBI complied building • Extend the GBI incentive scheme to include all incremental costs such as Environmental Design & Engineering Consultancy fees and GBI facilitator fees in order to mobilise R&D, innovation and capacity building in Malaysia • Extend the green building concepts to an urban planning and social organisation level; achieve greater sustainability by using a combination of local public policy, planning, design and technology • Allow European professionals in the construction sector with foreign qualifications to register in Malaysia and become shareholders and directors in their respective professional practices • Increase environmental performance requirements for public buildings to set the benchmarking paradigm for the construction industry. Define a roadmap for retrofitting all existing public buildings into the GBI Platinum standard

1.1.4 Waste Management (Anaerobic Digestion & Biogas) Until recently, Malaysia has been the largest palm oil producer in the world (as at April 2012, Indonesia holds the position), on top of an extensive portfolio of agriculture & plantation economy. Equipped with over 400 palm oil mills processing oil palm, from raw fruit to downstream operations of refinery, with various oleo products being exported to Europe, the palm oil industry is not without its criticism by many parties especially on environmental issues; land degradation, clearing of forests as well as waste management. One of the largest waste products from processing oil palm is the empty fruit bunches (EFB) as well as Palm Oil Mill Effluent (POME); an organic liquid discharge, high in Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD)/ Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) levels which cannot be released into waterways without prior treatment. BOD & COD in high levels mean that in competition with organisms which require the oxygen to survive, they will not be able to utilise it. Traditionally, POME is allowed to go through aerobic & anaerobic processes in series of open lagoons, where the byproduct of the process – methane, a greenhouse gas which is 21 times more potent than CO2 – is allowed to be released to the atmosphere, contributing to global warming. In recent years, palm oil mills (POMs) have started to realize the potential in generating clean electricity via the capture of methane. Coupled with strict environmental discharge levels via new legislations, there have been more incentives to adopt Anaerobic Digestion (AD) and to harness the methane for energy security, also reducing reliance on the national grid. It is also important to bear in mind that AD is not only limited to POME but all organic waste, including animal/farm waste, agriculture (grass clippings, mulch), food waste, municipal solid waste and sewage. This closed loop solution of waste management and renewable energy generation should see numerous benefits for the environment, community and energy security. Issues There are numerous challenges and issues with waste management – even before we reach the process of AD and harnessing biogas for power generation. Many of those lie with the security of feedstock supply - not all feedstock is easily collated (eg. municipal solid waste) due to different jurisdictions of councils. Neither is it guaranteed in cases of POMs, which prefer to focus on their core revenue generation business of palm oil processing. There are also the upfront capital expenditure costs in building AD plants, which do garner a return of investment (ROI) but often are fraught with the duration of payback, on top of revenue streams being unrealistic with challenges such as low Feed-in-Tariff rates, and at times volatile, due to Carbon Credit Markets. With the current electricity tariff rates being highly subsidised by the government, cost of electricity is relatively low resulting in manufacturing facilities not feeling the pinch of power cost. This also means the potential savings from generating their own electricity via AD are not as substantial as they would be, were energy prices not subsidised.

18 Green Technology From Europe 2012

Green Technology – ‹‹‹ Policy Recommendations by EUMCCI EEGT Committee

Despite legislations stipulating the BOD/COD discharge level to be of a very low level for POMs, AD is necessary to ensure the discharge levels can be met, but there is still the larger problem of enforcement to ensure these levels are adhered to. Operational, safety and health standards for renewable energy projects in this part of the world are still very low, which can be a stumbling block to the growth of a new industry. Incidents have occurred, with injuries and fatalities due to lack of controls and understanding of safe operational standards on such projects. For established industries such as Oil & Gas, such standards have been developed and enforced strongly to ensure the industry develops with safety as a main concern. Recommendations It is clear that biomass and biogas energy generation is for ideal Malaysia with its abundance of feedstock. With the introduction of the Feed-in-Tariff (FIT) system, there are now more incentives to embark on AD projects. However, with the tariff rates still restricted by the (very) gradual increases by Sustainable Energy Development Authority (SEDA) – the current RM 0.32/kWh is still not attractive enough for companies to invest in AD projects with the FIT being its only source of income. With no strong push factor on ROI, private businesses will be reluctant to invest, and with no legislation to mandate AD plants to be placed in mills or manufacturing and farm facilities, there is no anchoring factor for AD plants to be implemented voluntarily. Should the FIT be increased to a rate where it makes AD projects more viable, and reduces the reliance on volatile funding means like carbon credits, private businesses will certainly be more willing to embark on AD projects. This is because there are many benefits associated: their energy security is secured, exercising their part of being environmentally responsible (which is beneficial from the corporate social responsibility point of view) and increases the value proposition for organic waste - what was previously a headache, is now a valuable renewable source of energy. Success stories in Germany and the UK have proven that this is viable, and Malaysia – a country rich in natural resources - can benefit fully from securing this energy source, as well as addressing the larger national agenda of carbon emission reduction and increased renewable energy mix. For European industry firms, the operational health and safety standards have been long established and commonly practiced. This is something that should be transferred to the region to assist in the growth of new RE industry. New technologies and expertise are key catalysts to propel the industry forward and this is where members of EUMCCI can contribute.

1.1.5 Waste Management (Clinical Waste) In Malaysia, Pathogenic and Clinical Wastes and Quarantined Materials are considered as scheduled Wastes and come under the legislation of the Environmental Quality. Clinical waste is also defined as any other waste arising from medical, nursing, dental, veterinary, pharmaceutical or similar practices, investigation, treatment, care, teaching or research or the collection of blood transfuse. The Malaysian Government has declared it a national policy that all clinical waste must be incinerated, making it compulsory for all hospitals and clinics to incinerate their clinical waste. The defined concessionaries are in charge of collection and disposal. Transportation costs for collection can be high in remote rural areas when the waste quantity is small. As such, sterilisation possibilities should be considered for inclusion in today’s national policy.

19 Green Technology From Europe 2012

››› Green Technology – Policy Recommendations by EUMCCI EEGT Committee

Concessionaries A number of non-clinical services in government-run hospitals and clinics have been privatised. These services include clinical waste management. • Faber Medi-Serve - at Kamunting, Perak • Radicare (M) - at Telok Panglima Garang, Selangor • Tongkah Medivest - at Bukit Rambai, Malacca There are three sources of medical wastes generated in Malaysia from government hospitals and institutions, private hospitals and from private clinics. Ashes handling The disposal of ash generated from the incineration process at licensed, designated facilities can pose a problem. One of the primary threats from incineration is the form of the ash which is extremely fine and light and tends to be easily airborne and can be inhaled. The ash is contaminated with heavy metals, dioxins and PCBs. The huge sums invested into incinerators mean that the private companies are unwilling to consider alternative treatment technologies for the next several decades. The current system relies upon incineration to sterilise clinical waste. Incineration of medical waste, however, has proven to be a great public health threat if untreated. Globally, the tendency is to reduce incineration practices due to public sensitivity and increase the sterilisation share due to technological improvements and cost reduction. Today proper sterilisation processes are automatically recorded and assure traceability and security in remote areas. Malaysia has legally committed itself to a single treatment technology for the foreseeable future. Recommendation Although it is commendable that the Malaysian Ministry of Health has taken a comprehensive approach to the medical waste question the approach lacks flexibility and so is unable to adequately respond to new information, techniques, or technologies that could encourage FDI from EU companies. Newer, smaller and de-centralised solutions, facilities and comprehensive equipment are desired and are in Malaysia; these methods are however against Malaysian national law and policy which has authorised incineration only. Regulations for the new technologies and equipment should be introduced to control the liberalisation of sterilisation. Such a change will not affect the 3 concessionaries but will decrease the cost of medical waste disposal in remote areas, helping small waste producers.

1.1.6 Water Comprehensive Water Policy Currently, no overarching water policy exists for Malaysia. As a consequence, planning of water resources – from upstream catchments, to abstraction and treatment of water and wastewater – is not considered in relation to and against other needs. Integrated catchment management and water demand management are two strategic approaches to be included in a national water policy.

20 Green Technology From Europe 2012

Green Technology – ‹‹‹ Policy Recommendations by EUMCCI EEGT Committee

Recommendation Establish a holistic and integrated sustainable water policy for Malaysia. This requires stakeholder engagement and political intervention. Tariff review Water is currently under-priced. A low water tariff has driven the perception that water is plentiful and cheap. Consequently, Malaysia has developed excessive and profligate habits due to the low water tariffs; and this is leading to water scarcity in some urban areas. This scenario is not sustainable for Malaysia moving towards developed nation status in 2020. Recommendation Water tariffs should be reviewed and raised incrementally to reflect the importance and scarcity of this resource. Reduction in non-revenue water (NRW) Currently, NRW for Malaysia is approximately 40%. Recommendation To support a review of current water tariffs, a concerted effort is required by water utilities to improve their performance and reduce Non-Revenue Water (NRW). This will instill trust in the utility by the consumer. Water utilities play an important part in getting consumers to pay an increase in water tariffs. Malaysia should aim for developed country levels of 15%. Faster corporatization of water utilities and inclusion of Sabah and Sarawak into Pengurusan Aset Air Berhad (PAAB) and Suruhanjaya Perkhidmatan Air Negara (SPAN) cover The corporatization of the water utilities is very lengthy. As long as the task is not with all states finalized it will be difficult to unify tariffs and standards. Recommendation Efforts should be made to simplify and expedite the process of corporatization and inclusion and homogenization of all state tariffs and standards. Open public relation policy There is currently a lack of operation and investment plans by utility companies available for public consideration. Recommendation The utility companies as well as PAAB have to create operation and investment plans. If these were publicly available, stakeholders could better serve the water industry with faster and better services.

21 Green Technology From Europe 2012

››› Green Technology – Policy Recommendations by EUMCCI EEGT Committee

Investment incentives Lack of investment incentives and funds for clean water investors Recommendation As investors have often to build their own clean water supply resources investment incentives by MIDA would be beneficial – similar to those for investment into renewable energy resources. More international competitive bidding in water procurement The requirements for international companies to bid for contracts are as stringent in water procurement as in other business avenues for non-Malaysian business entities. Recommendation A relaxing of the requirements for international companies will increase the competitiveness of the market, making projects cheaper and encouraging more foreign involvement with higher level technologies into the sector. No centralized or coordinated mechanism to support water industry’s R&D needs and requirements. Currently, in the water industry, R&D is undertaken at ad hoc nature and many companies are not large enough to support R&D practices at all, or to the standard required. Recommendation Creation of mechanism to facilitate coordinated R&D for water industry as whole. It must be noted that discussions of this nature are being held by the Malaysian Water Association and Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM). Campaigns for saving water, conserving water catchment areas and cleaning up natural water resources It is definitely necessary to create more awareness of the importance to keep water resources clean. Recommendation To create and implement a national education campaign to highlight the importance of clean water and conservation and maintainence of current resources.

››› Green Technology – City in a Digital Nutshell City in a Digital Nutshell Urban infrastructures — whether for traffic and transport, energy, or buildings — are generally interlinked in many ways. As a result, even minor changes can have significant consequences. A software platform from Siemens makes it easier to manage the complexities of urban planning. The screen shows a satellite picture of the U.S. Dr. Bernd Wachmann, head of the “Sustainable Cities” project at Siemens Corporate Technology (CT), zooms in on a meadow just outside Princeton, New Jersey. With a few clicks, he inserts two office buildings into the image. He plots the ground plan, adds a parking lot and access roads — and the complex has taken shape in the virtual realm. As Wachmann does all this, a bar under the images he generates delivers data, such as the buildings’ energy consumption at different times of the day and year, how photovoltaic systems could improve their energy balance, how many people could work in the buildings, how their activity would impact traffic flows and the power grid, the amount of waste and air pollution they would produce, and what the expected operating costs would be. “Those are just a few of the parameters we simulate,” Wachmann explains. “The list can be expanded to include things like pedestrian-friendliness, the effects of electric vehicles on a project’s energy balance, and even quality of life. All of these aspects can be quantified and therefore modeled.” The software platform Wachmann uses for this is part of the City Life Management (CLM) project developed by CT scientists. The CLM platform comes from Princeton and Munich, city data is evaluated in Berlin and Vienna, and Munich is responsible for infrastructure expertise. The project develops and offers solutions for viewing cities holistically, simulating the long-term impact of changes, and formulating appropriate responses. CLM offers urban planners a simple way to see the potential consequences of their decisions. It also allows the easy development of alternative “what if…” scenarios such as changing a two-way street into a one-way street, making a building taller, or using photovoltaic facilities to improve a neighborhood’s energy balance. This opens up new possibilities for addressing complex urban planning issues in a simple and intuitive manner. The interrelationships between a city’s economic, environmental, and social goals are often extremely complex. For example, which is better: promoting the use of electric vehicles or expanding the public transport network? If you choose the former option, you won’t reduce traffic congestion but you will lower carbon dioxide emissions — but even that is only true if the power grid supplying the electric vehicles delivers energy from renewable sources. This, in turn, requires a high performance grid, which in some cases first has to be built and must include battery-charging stations. If, on the other hand, you choose the public transport option, you have to be sure there are enough incentives for people to use it. All of this is too complex for any one

24 Green Technology From Europe 2012

Green Technology – ‹‹‹ City in a Digital Nutshell person — or even many city governments — to evaluate. But it is no problem for the CLM platform. “Although our models don’t offer exact predictions,” says Wachmann, “they are 80% accurate. This enables them to provide a solid foundation for decision-making for a range of organizations, such as municipal agencies, politicians, citizens’ initiatives, and local residents.” The development of the CLM Platform was helped by the fact that the company has many years of experience in planning, building, and operating water, wastewater, and energy supply systems, as well as transportation infrastructures. “We can deal with such great complexity because we know how to mathematically model the physical behavior of these systems,” says modeling expert Tim Schenk from Siemens CT in Munich. In addition, Schenk and others are examining data now being made available by more and more cities about their demographic structures and development, energy consumption, and transport requirements. The results can then be combined with CLM to create realistic models that give participants a look into realistic future scenarios. All of this amounts to a paradigm shift, as planners can now see almost in real time how their decisions in one area - for instance, the height of a building - can impact things such as local traffic or the energy balance in a neighborhood. The CLM working group is now negotiating with representatives from two major projects in China and central Europe that plan to utilize this technology for the first time. “But that’s just the beginning,” says Wachmann. “At the moment, we’re also working on using key performance indicators (KPIs) such as energy consumption, traffic and transport volume, and carbon dioxide generation to derive socioeconomic indicators as well.” Quality of life assessments depend heavily on factors such as wages, public safety, and living conditions, but cultural conditions are also taken into account. The potential offered by CLM doesn’t end with virtual planning. Not only can it be used to conceive new neighborhoods and redesign cities for the decades to come, but it can also help to manage buildings and neighborhoods after they’re completed. A few mouse clicks will then be all it takes for planners and citizen groups to determine, for instance, how a neighborhood’s demand for electric vehicle parking and charging will change if a streetcar line is added. by Hubertus Breuer Pictures of the Future, Spring 2012 This article was provided by Siemens, sponsor of the EU Business Lounge at IGEM 2012.

providing 'waste to energy' solutions.

With appropriate biogas technology, all types of organic waste can be anaerobically digested to yield their energy content in the form of biogas which can then be used to generate electricity. Biogas can also be used for cooking or heating, and when treated and upgraded to biomethane, can be used as fuel for vehicles. In the process, we also help to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases which cause the global warming effect. At SP Multitech Renewable Energy Sdn Bhd, we are ready to provide such 'waste to energy' solutions. Using proven German technology with the advantage of Malaysian pricing, we are confident it will be feasible for many large operations that generate much organic wastes to put such wastes to good and profitable use. In particular, we see great potential for generating green or renewable energy from food and agroprocessing wastes, livestock farm manure, palm oil mill effluent and other agricultural biomass, and the organic portion of municipal solid waste.

Clean Batik Initiative (CBI) Clean Batik Initiative (CBI) is a 3-year (2011-2013) programme implemented by the Malaysian-German Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MGCC), and co-funded by the European Union under the SWITCH-Asia programme. Our local supporting organizations include Department of Environment / Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment (DOE), Kraftangan Malaysia and Persatuan Pembatik Malaysia, together with the local branches in Kelantan and Terrenganu.

Sustainable Production is the main focus of this project and concerns the supply side, focusing on the economic, social and environmental impacts of Batik production. Sustainable Consumption addresses the demand side, focusing on consumers’ behaviour and choices in purchasing Batik products. Policy Dialogues aims to intervene at policy framework-level to complement concrete interventions in businesses and consumer networks and / or organizations.


The programme consists of three components: Sustainable Production, Sustainable Consumption, and Policy Dialogues. The CBI programme aims to “green” both the supply and the demand side of Batik products to ensure that environmental impacts are thoroughly taken into account so that a virtuous push-pull cycle of responsible production and informed consumption can pave way for the sustainable development of the Batik industry.

To date 100 batik SMEs (83 in Kelantan, 17 in Terrenganu), an estimated 15% of the Malaysian batik industry have been ‘greened’ by the project.

Discovery of an Underwater Treasure The Andaman discovers a fringing coral reef in its shores

In December 2010, The Andaman embarked on a Coral Conservation project after discovering an 8,000 year old coral reef in its shores that was badly damaged by the 2004 Tsunami. Since then, the resort conducts monthly Coral Clearing activities and takes guests on educational Coral Walks to learn about this fragile ecosystem. The resort recently elevated its efforts to the next stage of coral rescue and rehabilitation by building a Coral Nursery to facilitate these objectives. Believed to be the first of its kind in SEA, it is here that guests can participate in the unique and inspiring activity of growing new coral which, after 4 - 12 months of nurturing, will be returned to the sea where they will bloom and blossom as part of a healthy new coral colony. The Coral Nursery, is not only a rehabilitation centre for rescued damaged coral, it also offers guests the unique opportunity to participate in inspiring activities to grow new coral and to learn the process of nurturing these new polyps. The coral pool also provides a great snorkeling area for children where our trained Coral Curator educates them on the fascinating life under the sea.

Not many places in the world can offer a tropical rainforest and a coral reef within 100 meters of each other. The Andaman, a Luxury Collection Resort on the Malaysian holiday island of Langkawi most certainly can. What started out as a voluntary activity for The Andaman associates during low tides is now a highlighted activity for guests. It all started with a few guests watching as the team carefully removed dead coral from the sea that were rolling over and damaging live coral. When we explained what we were doing, we were pleasantly surprised at how many adults and children wanted to help and do their little bit to save the environment – one polyp at a time! Tie up your coral experience with an exclusive getaway at The Andaman. Enjoy this experience with The Andaman’s Family Coral Package.

Change your light bulbs. Compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) can last for up to four years and use a quarter of the energy normal lights bulbs use. They also produce more light. Un-plug appliances when you are not using them. Simple but effective. Use a clothesline to dry your clothes rather than a dryer. Take shorter showers. This will lower your water and heating bills also. Install a low-flow showerhead. You will make savings on your energy bill which will quickly pay for the cost of the installation. Walk to work. This will improve your health also. If you are too far to walk, get public transport. Do not buy bottled water. Purify your tap water by using a filter and use a re-usable aluminum water bottle instead of a plastic one. Borrow books from libraries instead of buying. Recycle your old cellular phones and other electronic items. Don’t use paper when you don’t have to – email instead. Copy and print on both sides of paper. Re-use folders, paper clips, and envelopes when possible. Clean or replace filters in your air conditioning units. Buy good conditioned second hand products online. Use rechargeable batteries. Leave messages for colleagues/family members on a reusable message board While shopping, if you only buy a few products skip the shopping bag. For larger purchases, bring your own. When staying at a hotel, let the management know that you like to support businesses that adopt environmentally responsible practices (including reducing waste and water consumption.) Keep computer equipment updated; current new computers and monitors are more energy efficient than those even just two years old. Place a waste paper recycling box near the printers and a general recycling box in the staffroom. Empty the recycling boxes regularly. Always run full loads of laundry and dishes. Choose the short cycle at low water levels whenever possible. Set the clothing washer at the lowest possible temperature needed and for single rinse only. If you buy a new appliance, consider its water efficiency.

››› Green Building Index Organization - PAM’s architects have over the years been developing and working more and more towards a more sustainable and green architecture. In 2008, the need for a localised Green Building rating tool became more evident especially in the light of increasing demand from building end-users for Green-rated buildings that would not overly and adversely contribute to the destruction of the environment. This was also in line with the objectives of many companies today where good corporate social responsibility (CSR) calls for them to only support environmentally friendly initiatives including their office premises. In August 2008, PAM Council endorsed and approved the formation of the new Sustainability Committee which was tasked primarily to develop and set-up the Green Building Index and the accompanying Panel for certification and accreditation of Green-rated buildings.

GBI accreditation for buildings is separated into three tiers. At the highest level is the GBI Accreditation Panel, the independent regulatory body for GBI accreditation. At the intermediate level are the GBI Certifiers, consisting of experienced professionals that conduct the assessment and accreditation of project submissions. On the front-end level are the GBI Facilitators, professionals who together with clients and design team to enhance their projects to meet or exceed GBI rating system requirements.
