On Tuesday morning, I addressed the United Nations Climate Summit in New York, and renewed Malaysia’s commitment made during the 2009 Copenhagen climate summit. We had pledged to reduce emissions intensity of our GDP by 40% by year 2020. To date, we have already reduced emissions intensity by 33%, and are well on track to meet this goal.
All countries should commit to an ambitious deal to reduce emissions. And they must follow-up that commitment with consistent action.
I am proud to say that Malaysia has begun to break the link between economic growth and carbon emissions. We can grow our economies, increase prosperity and reduce emissions all at the same time.
