Go Green Campaign for Exchanges of Banknotes for Hari Raya Aidilfitri 2019

Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is the objective of the Go Green initiative?

The Go Green initiative is part of Bank Negara Malaysia’s ongoing effort to promote sustainability and conservation of our environment and resources for the benefit of the future generation.

2. How will this initiative help the environment?

The use of quality fit banknotes, which are as good as new, versus new banknotes will reduce the unnecessary usage of the country’s natural resources.

4. Where can I exchange fit banknotes for Hari Raya?

Members of the public can exchange fit banknotes for Hari Raya Aidilfitri at any financial institution branch throughout the country.
