Syarikat abaikan ESG sukar untuk berkembang

Syarikat yang memilih untuk mengabaikan pertimbangan kemampanan/alam sekitar, sosial dan tadbir urus (ESG) dalam perniagaan tidak mampu mengekalkan pencapaian baik kerana sukar mendapat pembiayaan ekuiti dan hutang untuk membiayai projek mereka. Pengerusi Bursa Malaysia, Tan Sri Abdul Wahid Omar, berkata syarikat terbabit perlu membayar premium insurans yang lebih tinggi untuk menaja jamin sebahagian daripada risiko mereka dan akan berdepan kesukaran untuk mengambil pekerja bagi memacu perniagaan. "Mereka tidak dapat menjual produk atau menjadi sebahagian daripada rantaian bekalan global memandangkan pelanggan lebih bijak menilai dan hanya membeli produk-produk yang mampan pada masa akan datang," katanya dalam ucapan alu-aluan pada Sidang Kemuncak Korporat ESG, bertemakan 'Memacu Kelestarian dan Transformasi Mampan' hari ini. Sidang kemuncak itu dianjurkan bersama oleh Kelab Ekonomi Kuala Lumpur (ECKL) dan Institut Strategik KSI bagi Asia Pasifik.

Anthony Tan, financial management and member, All-Party Parliamentary Group Malaysia (APPGM)-Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Project, said the 'G' in the ESG has nothing to do with the government but is best defined as the governance system in organisations.
