Bursa Malaysia plays a unique role for the Malaysian capital market as we are a regulator, a market operator, an influencer and a public listed company (PLC). We are in a position to champion the cultivation of the sustainability culture in the capital market, while as an exchange we are able to not only act as an influencer to other listed issuers but to also set the tone and pave the way for joint contribution from all listed issuers to the development of sustainable capital market.
As a regulator and market operator, we have a duty to uphold market integrity and investor protection while ensuring that our markets remain attractive as a destination for listing, trading and investment. For this, we have remained focused on enhancing our regulatory frameworks and approaches, providing a fair and orderly market that is easily accessible with diverse and innovative products and services. We have also heightened our efforts to promote best corporate governance (“CG”) and sustainability practices among listed issuers.
We promote responsible environmental protection practices among our employees and stakeholders. We also support the Government’s efforts in formulating appropriate climate change policies for the country such as the National Corporate Greenhouse Gases (“GHG”) Reporting Programme for Malaysia (“MyCarbon”).
Our impact on the social system is broad. Being a responsible employer, we are committed to good labour practices and decent work ethics, and respecting human rights. Additionally, we interact and collaborate with our stakeholders in making a positive impact on society and on our communities through a three-pronged approach in our community investment.
