Directors increasingly proactive on ESG


Malaysian Resources Corp Bhd (MRCB), which has been a constituent of the F4GBM index since 2014, sees challenges in capacity building, backed by significant resources required to assess risks and opportunities in making adequate disclosures, as well as the short timeframe involved, said MRCB chief corporate officer and ICDM fellow Amarjit Chhina.

MORE board directors and corporate governance leaders are taking steps to upskill themselves to be effective stewards on the environmental, social and governance (ESG) front.

As more Malaysian boards are seeking to elevate their board practices, an increasing number of companies are also incorporating independent searches in the board appointment process.

There are challenges to ensure financial performance and to keep up with enhanced requirements such as the latest rules on climate change.

But companies bravely soldier on as more boards and directors proactively seek improvement and upgrading in all aspects of ESG.

From January 2021 to April 2022, the Institute of Corporate Directors (ICDM) facilitated a total of 93 director education programmes which attracted 4,830 participants.

During the same period, the ICDM received 87 independent sourcing requests for board appointments, compared to 42 in 2020 and 2021, and successfully placed 12 directors in the first four months of 2022 alone.

A total of 15 companies, which is double the number from January 2020 to April 2021, have commissioned the ICDM to conduct external board and directors’ evaluations.

Among the most common challenges faced by most companies, is the capability to juggle between ESG and financial performance.

In the absence of substantial innovation, according to research, the financial performance of companies declines as their ESG performance improves.

As such, topics on organisation-wide innovation and digitalisation will likely dominate boardroom discussions, said ICDM president and CEO Michele Kythe Lim.

There is also a need to shift the focus on ESG being a compliance matter to a forward-looking strategy for sustainable value creation.

ESG, when approached from the perspective of performance enhancement, will open doors to positive outcomes in business, help to attract investments, improve risk management as well as innovation and productivity.

Post-Covid, there has been an increased interest in climate change, biodiversity as well as issues on diversity, equity and inclusion among institutional investors.

The climate theme, especially, is aligned to the Transition Pathway Initiative (TPI) climate methodology which involves tougher scoring and the introduction of minimum score thresholds for constituent companies.

The TPI is a global initiative that assesses companies’ preparedness to transition into a low carbon economy.

Recently, a total of 10 companies had qualified for the FTSE4Good Bursa Malaysia (F4GBM) index despite being evaluated under enhanced requirements related to climate change.

  • 45 英冠 考文垂VS斯托克城 【考文垂】 考文垂在本赛季表现一般,在新年的两场联赛中取得1胜1负的成绩,显示客场击败了降级区内的彼得堡连,随后在主场1-2惜败女王公园,俨然一副“欺软怕硬”的样子。 目前球队的头号射手是打入10球之多的本土射手戈登,他在最近对战彼得堡联的联赛中梅开二度帮助球队4-1带走三分,是目前球队十分器重的射手。 【斯托克城】 作客的斯托克城本赛季的状态和主队半斤八两,而两者之间的攻守数据也是十分接近。对比主队有戈登此等射手在阵,而斯托克城则是发挥了全民皆兵的特性,没有绝对的射手,入球最多的是本土中场布朗,目前在一线队参与过入球的人就多达16个。不过,别忘了陶工在此前面对强悍的富勒姆时,也不过是2-3惜败对手而已,攻守成绩还是比较值得信赖的。 【综合分析】 两队排位非常接近,而且攻守数据不过差之毫厘,但是考虑到客场作战的斯托克城几近把富勒姆战平的比赛,似乎作客的斯托克城在本场比赛更有胜算,考文垂尽管有射手在阵,但面对实力接近的对手,考文垂似乎并不善于和实力相当的对手较量。 【推荐:全场小球(小2.25)】 【点击头像查看实力】 【近期12中12 冲击13莲红预告】体验真不错
