Sustainable and Responsible Investment (SRI)
Sustainable development is a global imperative and one that Malaysia has fully embraced. As companies seek to align themselves with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, a well-developed financial sector is essential to support their needs. The capital market is uniquely placed to answer the call for sustainable finance in supporting the long-term growth of an economy. The Securities Commission Malaysia (SC) has long been cognisant of the need to promulgate and develop sustainable finance as it aligns closely with the principles underlying Malaysia’s Islamic capital market, having established facilitative regulatory frameworks to support sustainable and responsible investment (SRI) as well as green financing.
