Bursa Malaysia Urges Companies to Ensure Long-term Sustainability

There are currently 73 companies listed on Bursa Malaysia that have met the globally benchmarked environment, social and governance (ESG) criteria.

Bursa Malaysia chief executive officer Datuk Muhammad Umar Swift said on Monday this is an impressive accomplishment as the hurdle for entry to the index is a high bar.

That should be a loud wake-up call to all our public listed companies’ CEOs, chief financial officers and their boards as the drive towards sustainability is ramping up fast.

We need to demand more from our boards and management teams to deliver corporate returns to retake our role in the world as a leading emerging marketplace that does it right, delivering sustainability-minded and substantive returns to shareholders.
