Low Carbon

Cities around the world are responsible for up to 70% of greenhouse gas emissions globally. With the rapid increase in urbanisation, we have the collective responsibility to ensure sustainability for all.

LCC is an initiative by the Malaysian Green Technology and Climate Change Centre (MGTC) under the Ministry of Environment and Water (KASA) to help shift our cities towards a low carbon future.

Cleaner Cities

A Low Carbon City has cleaner air from reduced pollution from fossil fuel vehicles and a cleaner environment from the reduction in waste that goes to the landfills.

Cooler Cities

A Low Carbon City is cooler from the increase in greenery and tree cover and from the reduced urban heat island effect through green buildings and homes.

Healthier Cities

A Low Carbon City has a healthier environment from the reduced air pollution and have healthier residents from increased outdoor activities.

WHY LOW CARBON?

Climate change already has a significant impact on our cities and our way of life. If we do not respond appropriately, we risk having to do much more in a much shorter period of time to adapt to the changing environments. Going low carbon now, as many cities have started, will set us on a path towards a more sustainable and prosperous future.
