Malaysia Green Technology Funding

Malaysia Green Technology funding

applications, consultancy, green building technology and green technology transfer sourcing

General Criteria for green technology considerations under the New Malaysian Green Technology Funding Initiative (soft loan up to RM50 million).

Extending Green Technology Soft loan

2013 Malaysian Budget has extended the Green Technology Financing Scheme fund by RM2bil and stretching it for another three years ending in 2015.

The fund enables companies using green technology to obtain soft loans with a 2% government subsidy of the interest rate, with a 60% guarantee on the amount of financing.

Includes products, equipment and systems which are able to:-

  • Prioritize and non-degradation of environments
  • Prioritizing of low carbon gas emission
  • Removal of toxicity from the environment
  • Be Fuel efficient
  • Promote Renewable energy use

Before you embark on any business, it would be advisable to do a market research on its viability. This is especially so for the green technology sector and you can avail yourself to one of the most cost effective market research company money can buy.

Note on Green Technology Fund

Due to the stiff competition for Green Technology Funds (which is a soft loan) from all over Malaysia and beyond, it becomes mandatory for applicants to have at least an intellecture property registered in Malaysia. If however you not done so, you must at have an intention to file an IP. Perhaps we can help in this respect.
