A key priority for Capital Markets Malaysia (CMM) is to implement initiatives to build an ecosystem that leverages on sustainable and responsible investments (SRI). As part of this strategy, CMM will lead and collaborate with strategic partners in the establishment of regional Centres of Excellence (COE) to accelerate the capabilities of the country’s industry players in SRI.
The first of these is the formation of the Centre for Sustainable Corporations (CSC). The purpose of CSC is to build sustainable practices amongst public listed companies and to ensure the manner in which these companies raise financing is sustainable. The COE will provide a platform to develop expertise and positioning of Malaysian corporates as sustainable companies for investment by sustainable investors looking at opportunities in emerging market.
The capacity building activities carried out by the Centre will include, among others, workshops to showcase best practices on sustainable practices amongst companies, C-suite coaching sessions on reporting and engagement with institutional investors, an annual flagship event on sustainability and the role of corporate citizens and study expeditions for companies to learn of best practices in other countries.
