KUALA LUMPUR: CIMB Group has bagged three awards in FinanceAsia's poll of Asia's Best Managed Companies 2022.
It said in a statement that it was the most awarded company this year as it was recognised in the "most committed to environmental stewardship, "most committed to social causes" and "best investor relations" in Malaysia categories.
"These awards highlight our significant progress towards becoming an ASEAN sustainability leader as we play our part in realising a net-zero economy.
"Meanwhile, corporate responsibility remains a priority as we have committed RM150 million towards community investments over five years and 100,000 employee volunteerism hours annually by
2024 in order to bring about positive change and make a meaningful impact across the communities in which we operate,” said CIMB group CEO Datuk Abdul Rahman Ahmad.
Held annually, the Asia's Best Managed Companies poll by FinanceAsia serves as a benchmark of the region's most influential companies by evaluating the corporate behaviour and performance of Asian peers over the past 12 months.
According to CIMB, these awards are a testament to the headway made in advancing its environmental, social and governance (ESG) agenda, bringing it closer to achieving its ambition of becoming an Asean sustainability leader by 2024.
