Recommendation 1.4 of the Malaysian Code on Corporate Governance 2012 recommends that the Board should ensure that the company’s strategies promote sustainability. The Board should formalise the company’s strategies on promoting sustainability. Attention should be given to environmental, social and governance (“ESG”) aspects of business which underpin sustainability. Balancing ESG aspects with the interests of various stakeholders is essential to enhancing investor perception and public trust. The Board should ensure the company discloses these policies and their implementation in the annual report and the corporate website.
