ESG Awareness Session [VIRTUAL]

On 5 April, AMCHAM held an awareness session on Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG), the first entry in our ESG series. Our guest speakers, Datuk Muhamad Umar Swift, CEO of Bursa Malaysia Bhd, and Miranda Carr, Executive Director, ESG Research, Asia of MSCI (APAC), provided insight into the current global perspective of ESG as well as where Malaysia stands within ASEAN.

Both speakers elaborated on how ESG is measured, its impact on supply chains, the risk and opportunities present as companies transform their business to meet ESG compliance, and more. Attendees had the opportunity to raise their concerns and questions on the subject of ESG.

A big thank you to our guest speakers for a very educational session. Be sure to stay tuned as we’ll be having more ESG themed programmes in the coming months.
