Energy sectors are accountable for greenhouse gas emissions and many programmes to improve energy efficiency have been conducted since 1990. Ever since, the state of Melaka, through the Melaka Green Technology Corporation (MeGTC) and the Centre for Education, Training, and Research in Renewable Energy, Energy Efficiency, and Green Technology (CETREE) in 2016, has introduced energy efficiency and labelling programmes (EPCert) in an effort to promote an energy-efficient culture and ultimately control the total energy consumption of buildings in Melaka. Prior studies revealed that organisational readiness plays a crucial role in determining the success of energy efficiency initiatives in buildings. By assessing an organisation’s preparedness to undertake such projects, stakeholders can gauge the potential effectiveness of implementing energy-saving measures. Thus, this study is an initial attempt to investigate the occupants’ readiness in Melaka state government buildings towards environmental and energy-saving awareness practices among occupants. A survey method was employed for data collection. The respondents were building occupants and/or employees at eight major state government buildings in Melaka. A questionnaire was disseminated to the respondents, which generated a 53% response rate. A structural equation modelling-partial least squares approach was performed for the main data analysis.
