Bursa Malaysia Chief Executive Officer, Datuk Muhamad Umar Swift said, “I am encouraged to see more companies adopting the philosophy of ESG practices to improve their competitiveness and secure long-term value. Through our outreach programmes, the Exchange will step up efforts to engage with companies and help them improve sustainability practices and disclosures. We aim to create a positive impact while also raising the quality and diversity of companies across the board.”

Bursa Malaysia and FTSE Russell have been conducting outreach programmes to companies to encourage and support them in improving their ESG disclosures and practices. The continuous increase in the number of constituents is a reflection of the PLCs benefitting from these programmes and catalysing their efforts towards ESG best practices

F4GBM Index constituents are drawn from the companies on the FTSE Bursa Malaysia EMAS Index, comprising PLCs from across the small, medium and large market capitalisation segments. The index is reviewed in June and December against international benchmarks developed in collaboration with FTSE Russell.
