Take Action

Bursa Malaysia has always advocated sustainability as key to business success today. A holistic approach to business management, incorporating economic, environmental, social and governance considerations alongside financial ones, will serve as a sound business model that supports business continuity and long term value creation for stakeholders and society at large.

Overview

Embedding sustainability has started to become a catch-phrase in the corporate world. What is all the hype about?

There are many benefits of embedding sustainability into an organisation’s business strategies. These have been described in greater detail in Bursa Malaysia’s Sustainability Reporting Guide.

Investors have also begun to give approving nods to organisations that put sustainability at the forefront of their business. Asia in particular is beginning to experience the impact of sustainability risks. Some Asian countries are experiencing the outcome of man-made sustainability risks such as water shortage and more prominently, air pollution, which has had an impact on businesses. It is crucial for investors to be forward-thinking and recognise not only the risks but also the opportunities that may be obtained from tackling these issues.
