I REFER to the online letter by Mary Hasnah ("TNB strives to make consumers better-educated on electricity", NST, March 2).
As a consumer advocate, I am happy to note that our electricity provider Tenaga Nasional (TNB) has been a keen promoter of green energy, testimony to the several ongoing projects at Hulu Terengganu and Hulu Jelai.
TNB's biomass projects at Jengka, Johor, and Pahang shows its keen interest in renewable energy projects. It has invested heavily here and has a clear stand. It knows where it must commit to ensure its sustainability programmes.
It is interesting that TNB has gone halon-free in all operations of the Generation, Transmission and Distribution divisions. This must some kind of a record. This electric giant is a responsible corporate citizen, being committed to protecting the environment and minimizing its carbon footprint. Its environmental initiatives are guided by an environmental police which advocate:
* The protection, conservation and improvement of the environment in all of its operations and decision making.
* The implementation of an environmental management system that will ensure oil impacts on the environment from its operators are eliminated or minimised.
* The promotion of environmental awareness among its contractors, the public and other stakeholders.
Today, TNB's programmes also focus on air and water quality monitoring, as well as boundary noise levels monitoring. In such ways, I see this company is truly committed to the environment.
