The Green Technology Master Plan (GTMP) is fundamentally an outcome of the Eleventh Malaysia Plan (2016-2020) which has earmarked green growth as one of six game changers altering the trajectory of the nation’s growth. The GTMP creates a framework which facilitates the mainstreaming of green technology into the planned developments of Malaysia while encompassing the four pillars set in the National Green Technology Policy (NGTP) i.e. energy, environment, economy and social.

This first edition of the GTMP focuses on six key sectors, namely Energy, Manufacturing, Transportation, Building, Waste and Water and attempts to harmonise the policy directions of each sector towards a common goal of sustainable utilisation of natural resources. The green technology goals established for each of these sectors will be progressively realised and fine-tuned in the policies and actions developed in every 5-year National Development Plan period.
