Consistent with global aspirations regarding sustainability, the Malaysian government has understood the importance of keeping sustainable development goals in mind, in particular the need to promote good energy and environmental practices. One of the keys to achieving this is through education, and by instilling these values in all levels of the educational system. For this reason the Ministry of Education of Malaysia has led a global education effort to strengthen attitudes, values and actions which are compatible with sustainable development. Notwithstanding this, there is a clear lack of coordination and awareness in HEI campuses regarding sustainability and energy efficiency. It is therefore pressing to support the development of sustainability in HEI campuses in Malaysia, and even more so to do it through a national platform, in order to ensure that more concerted activities will have a better impact at both local and national levels.
