Launched in December 2014 with a total of 24 constituents comprising PLCs from across the small, medium and large market capitalisation segments, the F4GBM Index measures the performance of public listed companies (“PLCs”) demonstrating strong Environmental, Social and Governance (“ESG”) practices.

Bursa Malaysia and FTSE Russell have been conducting outreach programmes to companies to encourage and support them in improving their ESG disclosures and practices. The continuous increase in the number of constituents is a reflection of the PLCs benefitting from these programmes and catalysing their efforts towards ESG best practices.

F4GBM Index constituents are drawn from the 200 shortlisted companies on the FTSE Bursa Malaysia EMAS Index and are reviewed in June and December against international benchmarks developed in collaboration with FTSE Russell.
