As a state, we have long recognised the importance and immense potential of transitioning towards green technology, setting a target of becoming a green technology city state by 2020. We are already well on our way in our green journey with electric buses, electric charging stations and have been recognised for our low carbon city efforts.
IGEM continues to be an important platform for the Melaka State Government to both showcase our current green endeavours as well as explore opportunities to partner with industry leaders to rollout more green projects that will further catapult Melaka’s green status.
Dr. Claus Weidner
President & CEO, Mercedes-Benz Malaysia
With consumer mind-sets shifting towards eco-friendliness and efficiency, there is a pressing need for all aspects of the automotive industry to evolve. At Mercedes-Benz, we see IGEM and the Green Car Pavilion as a perfect example of a proactive approach that needs to be adopted to catalyse the nascent green vehicle sector.
As the inventor of the automobile, we are driven by our commitment to set new standards. Mercedes-Benz has for decades been at the forefront of developing vehicular engine technologies that have minimal environmental impact, and we have made it our ambition to combine environmental sustainability with everyday practicality. We look forward to being a part of this one-of-a-kind event to feature to provide our visitors with a glimpse of the future of mobility by Mercedes-Benz.
Huawei Technologies (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd
As a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, Huawei takes pride in continually pushing the boundaries of innovation while emphasising sustainability. This is reflected in our range of Smart PV Solutions that allow for higher yields, smarter operations and easier management, resulting in global shipping volumes of 10.5GW in 2015, which makes Huawei the global leader in the PV industry.
We are glad to be participating in IGEM 2016, ASEAN’s largest green technology exhibition, to showcase our latest breakthroughs to an audience of regional and international trade visitors. Further, in line with our spirit of open collaboration, Huawei is delighted to be invited to the Solar PV Conference, which congregates the world’s leading solar professionals and promises to be the region’s premier solar conference. Your are welcome to witness the excellent demonstration of FusionSolar Smart PV Solution.
For IGEM 2016 , the Swedish Embassy and Business Sweden are collaborating once again with KeTTHA and GreenTech Malaysia to organise seminars and workshops that will allow experts from Sweden’s industry leading renewable energy sector to share insights and success stories that will help further develop the domestic RE sector. With insightful and engaging activities such as these, we are confident that IGEM 2016 will continue its track-record as an important catalyst for leading companies and decision makers within ASEAN and beyond.
In our mission to nurture the growth of ASEAN’s solar industry, we are pleased to be partnering with Malaysia’s green agencies, the Ministry of Energy, Green Technology and Water, Malaysia; GreenTech Malaysia; and the MPIA to highlight the tremendous economic and environmental potential of solar technology at IGEM 2016.
Through a dedicated Solar Energy Zone and the inaugural Solar PV Conference, we aim to bridge the various aspects of the solar industry including innovators, entrepreneurs, investors, government officials and other key decision makers to establish a solid foundation that will see ASEAN’s solar sector climb to new heights. The exhibition and conference will feature industry leading corporations and international solar experts offering participants with an in-depth look into the latest developments and the future of ASEAN’s solar market.
President and Dean of the Asia School of Business
In line with our mission to develop transformative and principled leaders who will contribute to a better future, we are pleased to be leading the charge in ensuring the youth of Malaysia are well-equipped to pioneer this clean future through MakerFest.
Together with GreenTech Malaysia, we will be bringing the MIT-developed MakerFest to IGEM for the first time ever. We aim to inspire the young minds of today to instil a spirit of green innovation and entrepreneurship. We believe there is no better venue for this than IGEM with a range of cutting-edge green technologies and industry leaders on ground at the exhibition.
The EUMCCI has been a supporter of IGEM for seven consecutive years through the EU Pavilion. The EUMCCI recognises IGEM as a perfect avenue for European companies to showcase their green products and solutions with exclusive access to network with top Government officials, Ambassadors and major industry players. We are proud to continue our ongoing partnership with the Malaysian government to promote, support and strengthen the EU green business community in Malaysia.
Minister of Energy, Green Technology and Water
IGEM’s solid track record has continued to position it as the region’s leading green technology event and as a central hub for developing green businesses within ASEAN. For seven years, IGEM has attracted leading industry players, trade commissions, government officials and visitors from around the world, to exchange innovation, expertise and knowledge, while generating cross-country business opportunities.
We will continue to enhance IGEM to offer not just the best showcase, but also unique conferences and complementing events that will further promote developments and investment opportunities within this ever-evolving industry.
Ir.Ahmad Izdihar Supaat
Building and construction play a critical role in the quality of our environment and in fact, represent one of the key contributors to carbon emissions. To create a healthier and more a sustainable community for all Malaysians this is a key sector that must be addressed.
As the key driving force towards a sustainable built environment in Malaysia, MGBC is proud to be involved in IGEM 2016 to facilitate greater understanding on the benefits of green building and encourage the adoption of green practices in construction to a diverse audience of construction professionals, developers, town planners, policy makers and other key decision makers.
Dato Azman Mahmud
Striking a balance between greening the economy and being pro-business is critical in achieving Malaysia’s ambition to be a developed nation by 2020. Towards this end, MIDA will continue to provide the necessary facilitations to ensure a sustainable investment environment.
IGEM has cemented its position as a strategic business platform for the green economy having generated business leads amounting to over RM8 billion. MIDA is proud to play an integral role in this green growth since the inaugural IGEM in 2010 particularly through the Business Consultation sessions that we organise. We look forward to connecting more green businesses at IGEM 2016!
