Sarawak embraces United Nation Sustainable Development Goals

KUCHING, Dec 11 --  Sarawak fully embraces the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) said Minister of Utilities, Datuk Seri Stephen Rundi Utom.

He said, since 2010, Sarawak has reduced the dependence on fossil fuel generation towards a low carbon economy through renewable hydropower development.

“This was timely as the world wakes up to the importance of renewable energy in combating climate change.

“Sarawak began the transition before the world woke up to the climate change crisis and will continue to harness our hydropower potential to power growth, balancing this with indigenous coal and gas for security,” he said during the Sustainability and Renewable Energy Forum (Saref) 2019 closing ceremony here, today.

Rundi added, hopefully the two-day Saref 2019 will contribute towards a greater understanding about the renewable energy.

“It is necessary for us to continue learning best practices from around the globe and holding this international forum here in Sarawak means more of us can listen and learn,” he said.
