DKSH recognized as new constituent of FTSE4Good Bursa Malaysia Index

DKSH Malaysia has been listed as a new constituent of the FTSE4Good Bursa Malaysia Index following its latest June review this year, joining 75 other constituents with recognized corporate responsibility practices.

Petaling Jaya, June 16, 2021 – 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 selected from the top 200 Malaysian stocks in the FTSE Bursa Malaysia EMAS Index, screened in accordance with the transparent and well-defined ESG criteria. All constituent changes take effect at the start of business on June 21, 2021.

 

Launched in 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).

 

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 F4GBM Index listing reflects our leadership in corporate responsibility and reinforces our commitment to continuously improve non-financial voluntary disclosures and transparency on ESG matters to support investment decisions in responsible companies.”

 

DKSH’s inclusion in the index was announced a day before the Group’s publication of its fourth Sustainability Report on June 15, which is available at www.dksh.com/sustainability.
