DKSH gains inclusion into FTSE4Good Bursa Index


KUALA LUMPUR: DKSH Holdings (Malaysia) Bhd has been included into the FTSE4Good Bursa Malaysia Index (F4GBM), which was established to identify Malaysian public-listed companies that demonstrate strong environmental, social and governance (ESG) practices.

In a statement, DKSH said it was one of 76 F4GBM Index constituents selected from the Top 200 Malaysian stocks in the FTSE Bursa Malaysia EMAS Index, based on transparent and well-defined ESG criteria.

All constituent changes will take effect at the start og business on June 21, 2021.

"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," said DKSH Malaysia head of country management Nicholas McLaren.

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).
