Discussion at the launch of the Malaysian Chapter of the CGI, Kuala Lumpur


Benjamin McCarron, Special Consultant, was invited to be a panellist on the topic of "Observations on the materiality of climate risk for companies in Malaysia and the duty of directors to respond" at the launch event of the Malaysian Chapter of The Climate Governance Initiative (CGI) at the Securities Commission in Kuala Lumpur on 16 May 2019. The session was attended by around 30 representatives from corporates and regulators in Malaysia.

The CGI aims to encourage Non-Executive Directors (NEDs) to acquire the practical skills needed as long-term stewards of the business to help steer their companies through an effective climate transition strategy, taking into account the need for financial stability, increased resilience and sustainability. The Malaysian Chapter is the first formally constituted country-level chapter in the world. It was initiated by a group of NEDs who sit on the boards of various Bursa Malaysia-listed companies.
