Brunei committed to tackling climate change


Brunei Darussalam’s efforts in climate change includes reducing carbon emissions from the energy sector through more efficient power generation, deployment of renewable technologies and addressing venting and flaring from oil and gas production, as detailed in the Brunei National Climate Change Policy launched in July. The country is also exploring the potential of Carbon Capture Utilisation and Storage (CCUS) to mitigate industrial emissions from the oil and gas sector. This was shared by Minister of Energy Dato Seri Setia Dr Awang Haji Mat Suny bin Haji Mohd Hussein at the 3rd East Asia Energy Forum on Tuesday. More details in Wednesday’s Borneo Bulletin.
