Bursa Malaysia Launches BURSASUSTAIN, A One-Stop Knowledge Hub On Corporate Governance And Sustainability.


On 24 April 2018, Bursa Malaysia Berhad ("Bursa Malaysia") launched BURSASUSTAIN, a comprehensive online portal designed as a one-stop knowledge and information hub on corporate governance and sustainability. In its press release on the same date, Bursa Malaysia said that the hub aims to provide a platform for users, such as listed issuers, investors and other key stakeholders, to have easy access to the latest information on corporate governance and sustainability.
 
Designed to be user-friendly, Bursa Malaysia hopes that BURSASUSTAIN will act as a catalyst for listed issuers to adopt and implement quality corporate governance and sustainability practices, as well as improving the quality of disclosures and reporting to be on par with international standards. For investors, BURSASUSTAIN also provides information on responsible investment and Islamic finance.
 
The three key pillars housed in BURSASUSTAIN are as follows: 

 

  1. The Corporate Governance pillar provides resources that help listed issuers understand the benefits and value of adopting good corporate governance practices.
  2. The Sustainability pillar contains tools and resources to inform and inspire listed issuers at different stages of their sustainability journey.
  3. The Responsible Investment pillar gives investors a better understanding of applying the latest environmental, social and governance information alongside their financial and market consideration, which will allow them to make better informed investing decisions. 

 

BURSASUSTAIN can be accessed here: https://bursasustain.bursamalaysia.com.
