Sustainability frameworks we follow
The global standard
The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) framework is still the most commonly used and it provides guidance on creating a comprehensive and robust report. Typically, we use the GRI framework as our principal guidelines.
The GRI Standards are the first global standards for sustainability reporting. They feature a modular, interrelated structure, and represent the global best practice for reporting on a range of economic, environmental and social impacts.
The Malaysian standard
In 2006, Bursa Malaysia introduced a requirement for Main and ACE Market listed issuers to disclose their corporate social responsibility (“CSR”) activities or practices in annual reports.
Attracting local and international investment
In December 2014, Bursa Malaysia and FTSE launched an Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) index i.e. FTSE4Good Bursa Malaysia Index for the Malaysian market. The FTSE4Good Bursa Malaysia Index constituents are selected from the top 200 Malaysian stocks in the FTSE Bursa Malaysia EMAS Index, screened in accordance with the transparent and defined Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) criteria.
Although not a framework as such, many of our clients wish to be included on the index. We work with companies to disclose relevant sector specific information and data in their reports.
