Shell and Sarawak State Sign Memorandum of Understanding to Explore Nature Conservation
Aug 27, 2018
Bintulu, Shell Malaysia Ltd (“Shell”) and the Sarawak State government, represented by the Sarawak Ministry of Urban Development and Resources, today jointly announce that they have entered into a non-binding Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to explore a nature conservation, restoration and enhancement venture in the state of Sarawak.
Shell and Sarawak state recognise that natural ecosystems such as forests, wetlands, peatlands and mangroves have the potential to contribute to the journey to a low carbon future.
Following the MOU signing, a committee formed from both Shell and the Sarawak state government representatives will study the potential for a nature conservation, restoration and enhancement venture for Sarawak’s natural landscape.
Shell is playing its part in the transition towards a low-carbon future. This requires a multi-faceted approach: from nature-based solutions to providing lower-carbon fuels to customers, providing renewable power from solar and wind, and developing gas markets for power and transport.
This MOU builds on Shell and Sarawak state’s long-standing relationship, which spans the upstream, midstream and downstream energy businesses.
