Sustainable AND Responsible
 Investment Center 

Overview

The world is changing across all fronts, necessitating transformational thinking and attitudes to adapt and then to grow. The same transformation is happening around us in the capital market, with more and more issuers and investors are seeking to make an impact with their investments, by exploring Sustainable and Responsible Investment (SRI).

Today, SRI have transformed from niche products into mainstream capital market offerings, as more discerning investors shift towards climate friendly activities, to minimise their impact on the planet. In fact, the capital market plays a critical role in providing funding to drive SRI.

In realising the world’s sustainable development needs, a significant amount of funding is required. Based on estimates by the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), to achieve the global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the world would need total investment of between US$5.0 trillion and US$7.0 trillion (RM17.5 trillion and RM24.5 trillion) per annum until 2030.
