RFI Member Statements of Intent
We target to integrate economic, social, and governance (ESG) considerations into our risk assessment and operational strategies to ensure that our business journey has a net positive impact on all our existing and future stakeholders over the long term.
CIMB Islamic’s newly institutionalised sustainability framework aims to guide our corporate citizenship initiatives in the markets we operate, while contributing to the United Nations’ (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These include improving financial inclusivity, promoting education, enhancing the well-being of communities, demonstrating environmental stewardship, and encouraging entrepreneurship. We are also developing sustainable performance indicators to guide future financing, investment, and procurement decisions, to address the various risks associated with climate change.
As a founding member of the Community of Practitioners of Central Bank of Malaysia’s Value-Based Intermediation (VBI), we are well-positioned to integrate the VBI principles of entrepreneurial mindset, community empowerment, good self-governance and best conduct into our strategies. CIMB Islamic is also a member of the UN Global Compact’s Local Network in Malaysia, aligning our business and CSR goals with the SDGs.
