KUALA LUMPUR, May 15 — Green Lagoon Technology Sdn Bhd’s reverse takeover of Ancom Logistics Bhd will result in the total decarbonisation of the latter’s holding company Ancom Nylex Bhd.

Ancom Nylex managing director and group CEO Lee Cheun Wei said that the company will be able to recognise about one-fifth of the captured carbon that Green Lagoon has once the takeover is completed, The Edge reported today.

“Based on Green Lagoon’s representation and early discussions, its operations absorb around 500,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e), of which it has an effective ownership of 370,000 tonnes of CO2e.

“As Ancom Nylex will hold at least 21 per cent of the shares in Ancom Logistics post-Green Lagoon acquisition, we will be totally decarbonised, as our carbon emissions last year, including Scope 3 emissions, totalled less than 40,000 tonnes of CO2e,” he was quoted as saying.

Lee also said that beside the 370,000 tonnes of carbon captured, Green Lagoon has also been building up its renewable energy certificates (RECs).

He said the company has RECs that represent about 29,000 tonnes of CO2e a year, from 16 biogas capturing plants.

“Businesses are re-evaluating their carbon emissions, and those companies that could not meet their carbon emissions targets will require RECs,” Lee was quoted as saying.
