In My Search Of Greatness

In my search of greatness is written by Sharifah Zakirah, who recently joined the Huawei Malaysia’s team. What makes one a dreamer and another a doer? A dreamer simply dreams of achieving goals; however, a doer takes the initiative to step out of their comfort zone and venture into uncharted territories. Bits and Pieces I have been an Administrative and Diplomatic officer (PTD) in the Government for 11 years. The position itself is challenging but it has taught me to be holistic and to multitask; allowing me to perform various roles, generating new skills and experiences. I first joined the civil service in 2010 and was then posted to the Ministry of Higher Education at the Management Services Division. In 2014, I was moved to the Infrastructure Development Division of the Ministry of Tourism, Arts & Culture. Later, I joined the Tourism Policy and International Affairs Division in 2019 and I have been taking care of international affairs ever since. When the pandemic struck in early 2020, everything changed. Everyone was forced to change their daily routines to prevent the spread of the virus. The pandemic definitely caused a great dent to the economy, especially the tourism industry which relies heavily on international tourists, due to the endless lockdowns and border restrictions that were imposed. All activities and programmes related to tourism were temporarily frozen. The drastic and abrupt changes greatly affected my mental health as I struggled to maintain an optimal work performance, while at the same time trying to adapt to the new norms of digitalisation. There were days where I felt completely demotivated, but I never gave up or gave in. I made the most of what I could to adopt and adapt to this new lifestyle and to focus on being agile and nimble in these…

Huawei Awarded the Global First Carbon Footprint Verification for Inverters Issued by BSI

SHANGHAI, June 29, 2022 — On June 28, Huawei was awarded the world’s first Carbon Footprint Verification (CFV) for solar inverter products issued by the British Standards Institution (BSI). A globally-renowned standards body, BSI is a special adviser to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and a producer of standards such as the world’s first carbon footprint standard PAS 2050. This CFV proves Huawei’s capability to evaluate the carbon footprint of products throughout their lifecycle and acknowledges Huawei’s efforts in reducing carbon emissions, increasing the share of renewable energy, and promoting circular economy. Huawei’s development concept – green, low-carbon, and sustainable – underpins the entire lifecycle of inverters and is accredited by BSI. It is of great significance to establish and develop a carbon footprint management system in the photovoltaic (PV) industry. Driven by China’s goals of achieving carbon peak by 2030 and carbon neutrality by 2060, the PV industry, as a major contributor to renewable energy, is experiencing explosive growth. 1st Petrochemical Sustainability Conference Announced The Petrochemical Sustainability Conference scheduled on September 13 and 14 will gather over 50 thought leaders and over 500 delegates from Malaysia and the region in Kuala Lumpur. Business NewsNews Admin Carbon Footprint Although PV power generation is widely recognized as an important way to reduce carbon emissions, not all PV products themselves are low-carbon. According to the Clean Production of Solar PV in China report, PV plants cannot achieve zero carbon emissions for 1.3 years of the 25-year lifecycle. As such, reducing the carbon footprint is critical to the decarbonization of energy systems. To this end, it is important to understand and manage the carbon footprint as well as carbon emissions impact during the manufacturing of PV system components. In Europe and other parts of the world, carbon footprint is a…
