OVERVIEW

The Sustainable and Responsible Investment (SRI) agenda has never been more critical and significant than it is today. The global pandemic, economic crisis and effects of climate change have demonstrated the need for leadership and change to drive the sustainability agenda in creating impactful long-term business strategies, sustainable economic growth and better climate. Investors have also shown a shift in their readiness and willingness to invest in companies that aim to build a better future for our planet and for the next generation.

Following on from last year’s theme on “Strategic Value of Sustainability” during the SRI 2020 virtual conference, this year’s conference will focus on the need for the Malaysian capital market to play a more aggressive role in paving the way for profitability through sustainability. This may be achieved by facilitating and supporting business development ideas and agendas that are geared towards green, social and sustainable investments that are both profitable and reflective of the strategic values of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

OBJECTIVE

The purpose of this conference is to help business leaders and policy makers recognise the challenges and opportunities posed by unprecedented changes in global market developments. It also aims to provide an important platform from which new ideas and actions are sprung forth in creating more sustainable and responsible businesses and markets that can make a positive long-term impact on society and the environment.

This year’s discourse will focus on the progress and development made with regard to future plans following the launch of the five-year roadmap by Securities Commission Malaysia (SC) that comprises the five overarching strategies.

Known as the 5i-Strategy, it includes widening the range of SRI instruments, increasing the SRI investor base, building a strong SRI issuer base, instilling a strong internal governance culture and designing information architecture in the SRI ecosystem.
