ESG-Compliance Is Pivotal for Malaysia’s Economy

Advocating environmental, social and governance (ESG) is seen as the key resolution for industries across the board even though small firms are still at the infancy level of the implementation, while the larger ones are catching up fast with some already standing side by side with global companies. Although economists feel that ESG is still a long way to go, growing sustainably and responsibly is nevertheless vital as the country’s economy recuperates from Covid-19.
