As the world sees a shift in the demographics of investors and customers, their demands that business enterprises adopt sustainability-related practices cannot be ignored any longer. Today, it is imperative for financial institutions to integrate sustainability into their business due to expectations for business enterprises to also serve environmental and social purposes.
AmBank Group’s Focus 8 Strategy includes the integration of environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations into its strategies, business and operations. The Focus 8 Strategy and the group’s Sustainability Framework, which is underpinned by three sustainability themes — responsible banking, conscious self-conduct and positive societal impact — reflect its commitment to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) and the higher objectives of Shariah (Maqasid Shariah).
