27 Feb 2020 | Thursday

Sustainable development has been globally recognised as an imperative, with commitments being made to address relevant issues by nations including Malaysia. Accordingly, the availability of finance supported by efficient financial markets would play a crucial role in ensuring that the global sustainable development needs are adequately supported. Bank Negara Malaysia and The Securities Commission Malaysia (SC) have long been cognisant of the need to promulgate and develop sustainable finance as it aligns closely with the underlying principles of Islamic finance. For capital market, the SC has established the Sustainable and Responsible Investment (SRI Roadmap) and facilitative regulatory framework to support sustainable and responsible investment.
