Corporate governance rules in many countries, including Malaysia, have traditionally been based on the shareholder model. Even though it was acknowledged that stakeholders’ interests should be considered in creating long-term shareholder value, most principles and provisions are provided for the protection and creation of shareholder value. The 2021 Malaysian Code on Corporate Governance is one of the first corporate governance codes to incorporate sustainability-related and ESG considerations into its principles, intended outcomes, practices and guidance.

At the same time, sustainability reporting standards issued by various bodies globally require companies to disclose their sustainability governance structures and practices. This one-day program will discuss how corporate governance practices can effectively incorporate ESG considerations in order for boards to discharge their responsibilities in an ESG world.

  • Understand how ESG considerations affect their fiduciary duties and board responsibilities;
  • Better align their corporate governance practices to ESG factors;
  • Exercise better oversight over ESG factors that affect their business;
  • Understand emerging issues in ESG.
  • Chairman of Boards
  • Board Committee Members
  • Board of Directors
  • Anyone who might find this program helpful.
