Back in October, the Ministry of Energy, Green Technology and Water (KeTTHA) launched MyHijau label project. According to the Minister YB Datuk Sri Peter Chin, "In line with the National Green Technology Policy, the programme will push Malaysian manufacturers to produce more competitive goods and services by incorporating environmental attributes to meet local and global market demand." It is not just promoting environmental-friendly goods and services but also streamlining various environmental labeling practices by Malaysia companies. This project will allow consumers to identify and select products and services based on environmental factors.
Electrical appliances, food and beverage, construction materials, household products, stationery and office supplies, furniture and packaging, clothing, agricultural and timber products will all be part of the project that can be certified with MyHijau label. Businesses with products or services certified with the MyHijau label stand to benefit from improved eligibility for green procurement projects in the future.
Join force with Malaysian Green Technology Corporation, KeTTHA established a mechanism to ensure smooth and consistent coordination among various agencies, certification bodies, academic and research institutions and other existing scheme operators.
