The Institutional Investors Council Malaysia (IIC) and Capital Markets Malaysia (CMM) have collaborated to form the Sustainable Investment Platform (SIP) to support institutional investors and the fund management industry to build depth in sustainable and responsible investment (SRI) strategies that align financial returns with wider environmental, social and governance priorities.
In addition to providing a common platform to deepen the impact and visibility of sustainable investors, SIP will also build stakeholder capacity for data collection, tools and methodologies that will support innovation in sustainable investment strategies
The SIP will build on the foundation laid by the IIC to support Malaysia’s transition to an inclusive and climate-resilient economy by championing the sustainable investment agenda. Its activities will include advocating sustainable investing practices amongst institutional investors and fund managers in Malaysia, facilitating the exchange of international best practices and positioning Malaysia’s sustainable capital market leadership.
Capital Markets Malaysia, an affiliate of the Securities Commission Malaysia (SC), will provide strategic support and funding for the SIP as part of its initiative to position Malaysia as a regional centre for sustainable and responsible investment.
THE STEERING COMMITTEE
The PRI works to understand the investment implications of environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors and to support its international network of investor signatories in incorporating these factors into their investment and ownership decisions. The PRI acts in the long-term interests of its signatories, of the financial markets and economies in which they operate and ultimately of the environment and society as a whole. Launched in New York in 2006, the PRI has grown to more than 3,800 signatories, managing over $103 trillion AUM.
