State elections, deforestation and greenwashing – Rimbawatch

A high-rise project on a hill-slope in Penang

BFM catches up with Adam Farhan, the co-founder and director of environmental watchdog RimbaWatch, to find out how the six states heading to the polls have been doing on the environment front – with a special focus on deforestation – and what voters should consider when choosing their state representatives.

Adam also sheds light on a recent report RimbaWatch released that highlighted gaps in Petronas’ “net zero carbon emissions by 2050” pathway.
