DKSH Malaysia has been listed as a new constituent of the FTSE4Good Bursa Malaysia (F4GBM) Index, an established index designed to identify Malaysian public-listed companies demonstrating strong environmental, social and governance (ESG) practices.
DKSH was one of the 76 F4GBM Index constituents chosen among the top 200 Malaysian stocks in the FTSE Bursa Malaysia EMAS Index based on clear and well-defined ESG criteria. All constituent changes take effect on June 21, 2021, at the start of operations.
Nicholas McLaren, Head, Country Management, DKSH Malaysia said, “Driven by our purpose to enrich people’s lives, we provide access to high-quality products, services and insights in a way that is profitable, while creating long-lasting benefits for the community, environment, marketplace and workplace.
“DKSH’s inclusion in the F4GBM Index shows our corporate responsibility leadership and underscores our commitment to consistently increase non-financial voluntary disclosures and transparency on ESG issues to support investment decisions in responsible companies,” he added.
Since its inception December 2014, the F4GBM Index was developed in collaboration with FTSE for the Malaysian market, with well-defined inclusion criteria that are consistent with the global ESG model that FTSE has developed and aligned with leading global disclosure frameworks, such as the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) and the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP).
