TNB Reaffirms Commitment to Propel the Nation towards Energy Transition


Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB), recently hosted a seminar in collaboration with the Economic Planning Unit, Prime Minister’s Department (EPU), to foster greater awareness and understanding of the nation’s sustainability agenda. Themed “Sustainable Development Goal 7 (SDG7): A Journey Towards Energy Transition”, the seminar discussed Malaysia’s journey towards energy transition.

The event was also a platform to showcase TNB’s role as a key driver of the country’s energy transition aspiration, in line with the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goal 7 (SDG7).

The half-day seminar was attended by over 1,000 participants, including senior leaders from both public and private sectors. It was officiated by Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Economy), Dato’ Sri Mustapa bin Mohamed, who delivered a keynote speech. 

“The Government is pleased to see strong commitment of the private sector’s participation in clean energy and green growth projects as exhibited by TNB. Malaysian public-listed companies (PLCs) are also to be commended for putting higher priority in environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors. It is laudable to witness private sector embracing
sustainability by incorporating ESG agenda into their core strategies, policies, operations and even CSR programmes,” Dato’ Sri Mustapa Mohamed said in his keynote address.
