Dear MDBC members,

We have two important announcements regarding this informative event scheduled for (next week) Wednesday, 4 October from 09:00 – 11:30 hrs.

1) This briefing is particularly useful for MNCs and SMEs!

In October, Capital Markets Malaysia (CMM) (an affiliate of the Securities Commission Malaysia (SC)), will launch the Simplified ESG Disclosure Guide (SEDG) for SMEs, providing practical, structured guidance on disclosures expected of small – to – medium enterprises in relation to ESG matters;

2) We’re happy to announce that we will be making this a hybrid event.

While we are filling the room for a live engagement, we find the practical information is so important that for our Penang or Johor Chapter members, or any members who are located further abroad (whether regionally or Internationally), you will be able to log in via Zoom to view the live cast.

When registering, kindly indicate your interest in attending online so that we can send you the Zoom link.

REMEMBER: Sustainability Reporting Frameworks are guidelines that provide organizations with a structure to identify, assess, and report on sustainability issues relevant to your operations. This allows you to benchmark your performance against industry peers and global best practices, as well as communicate your progress to stakeholders including investors, regulators, customers, and employees.

So do sign up now to join our Simplified Disclosure Guide which will help you to incorporate Sustainability Practices within Supply Chains on Wednesday, 4 October from 09:00 – 11:30 hrs at citizenM Kuala Lumpur Bukit Bintang Hotel. It will help you gain a better understanding of how you can utilize these standards and frameworks to increase transparency, understanding, and trust in your brand (and potentially those of your partners / vendors throughout your entire supply chain).
