Leaders from around the world attended the Global Green Growth Forum (3GF) Summit in Copenhagen on 6-7 June. This year, Malaysia took part with a delegation led by Minister of Energy, Green Technology and Water, Dr. Ongkili
Leaders from corporations, governments and civil society from around the world met in Copenhagen on 6-7 June to discuss how to enable green growth solutions at speed and scale. It is the fifth year in a row that leaders from around the world gather in Copenhagen to accelerate the transition towards sustainable green growth. This year, the 3GF Summit focused on a sub-set of the UN Sustainable Development Goals that best align with green growth drivers, e.g. on cities, energy, forests, water, land, sustainable production and consumption, food security and finance.
Minister Ongkili led the Malaysian delegation, which besides representatives of his own ministry also included the Sustainable Energy Development Agency (SEDA), the Green Tech Corporation, the Energy Commission (EC) and the National Electricity Company (Tenaga).
While in Denmark, the Minister met his relevant Danish counterparts, attended a roundtable discussion on Danish policies and technologies as well as undertook field-visits to, among others, an advanced waste water treatment facility and a waste-to-energy plant. Minister Ongkili and the Malaysian delegation was accompanied by Ambassador Nicolai Ruge during the visit.
