BMCC Climate Action Pledge
Taking the First Step – Towards a Net Zero Future

The British Malaysian Chamber of Commerce (BMCC) is pleased to launch the BMCC Climate Action Pledge, together with the support of the British High Commission in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (BHCKL), and UN Global Compact Malaysia and Brunei (UNGCMYB).

The BMCC Climate Action Pledge is started as an avenue to raise awareness about climate change and implement climate-related initiatives among organisations and businesses that have yet to commit to any climate-related goal.

Organisations that have committed to other climate goals are also welcomed to sign up to this pledge and be part of this network where they can, through their leadership and experience, support other organisations in the various sectors taking their first steps in this journey.

We aim to encourage organisations and businesses to adopt some of these initiatives below over the next 12 months.



Climate Action a key agenda in Board / Management Meetings


Baseline measurement of carbon footprint


Action plan to improve sustainability efforts


Trainings and capacity building on climate-related goals


Organise / Co-organise a climate action event


Report climate-related goals and action
