KUALA LUMPUR: RAM Rating sees Islamic finance playing a vital role in supporting the implementation of socially responsible investing (SRI, which includes environment, social and governance (ESG) matters) and funding for the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). 

“The common philosophies with SRI serve as a bridge for Islamic finance in becoming a mainstream financing source,” said Ruslena Ramli who moderated the RAMification dialogue with industry experts on Feb 28 hosted by RAM Ratings.
