Kuala Lumpur, 14 December 2020: Over the past months, under the leadership of its Executive Director Roberto Benetello, BCSD Malaysia has spent considerable time zooming in on the priority areas for business and sustainability in the country. As Benetello comments: “We have come up with a priority list and a number of ideas that we are now transforming into projects with precise objectives, strategies and deliverables. The areas of interventions we have identified include plastics recycling and circular economy, biodiversity preservation, energy transition and net-zero GHG emissions, green financing, urban mobility and human rights. Hopefully we will be able to start up some of them very soon with the help and support of our members and stakeholders.”

In the words of Prof. Tan Sri Zakri Abdul Hamid, Chairman of the Board: “BCSD Malaysia is ready, willing, and able to play the ‘honest broker’ role in meeting the sustainability aspirations of companies in this country.”
