    In line with Malaysia’s commitment to reducing carbon emissions intensity by 45% before 2030, this one-day programme will cover the evolution of national energy policies and emphasise the latest Energy Efficiency and Conservation Act (EECA), specifically highlighting its impact on industrial clients with energy consumption above specified levels.

    While energy efficiency can assist these industries in reducing their energy consumption, the technology related to energy efficiency varies, focusing more on monetary savings rather than profitability. This programme aims to provide the bank’s relationship managers and credit risk officers with a fundamental understanding of the challenges and opportunities associated with energy efficiency, particularly in electrical and thermal technologies. This knowledge will enable them to identify financing gaps and opportunities, effectively manage associated risks, and structure innovative sustainable financing proposals. These proposals will support the clients’ sustainability roadmaps and facilitate a seamless transition toward a green and low-carbon economy.

    This programme will also serve as a refresher, enhancing BNM CCPT practices for the bank’s Relationship Managers and Credit Risk Officers.
