GREEN PRACTICES RMK12 PROJECT
The Green Industry RMK12 MyHIJAU Project is a continuation of the implementation of the MyHIJAU Program under the Ministry of Environment and Water (KASA) and the Malaysian Green Technology and Climate Change Corporation (MGTC) which is a coordinator agency and secretariat for the program. This program has been approved by the National Green Technology and Climate Change Council (MTHPI) which was held on 23 October 2012. This is one of the Government’s initiatives in the development of Green Technology in Malaysia. It is in line with the implementation of the National Green Technology Policy as well as the direction of Sustainable Consumption & Production (SCP) to encourage local manufacturers, producers and suppliers, especially companies and businesses of Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs). In addition, it will also focus on the Government’s initiatives and direction in the development of the country’s SMEs.
The development of the Green Practice Guidelines is to provide guidance to the green industry in implementing green practices at the initial stage, during and after construction is implemented. These Guidelines also have an implementation direction to ensure that these Guidelines will continue to be referred to and adopted by all parties to assist in achieving the government’s goal to implement green development in Malaysia. This green practices guideline can help the industry sector to have the potential to venture into the field of green technology, especially in the production of green products and services as well as increase encouragement to the industry manufacturers, manufacturers and suppliers to apply green technology in organisations, production processes and operations.
This green practice guidelines development program is able to play a very important role in being a catalyst to ensure that these guidelines are more practical and applicable to all parties in the green industry, especially in the Construction, Mining, Manufacturing, Agriculture & Plantation, Fisheries, Forest Operations, Services and Livestock sectors either directly or indirectly for local companies and businesses to gain Green Practices recognition.
