ESG – Endurance, Strength and Grit

As a financial technology company, reducing carbon footprint is not the main challenge faced by GHL due to the nature of its business.

Sustainability has become an inevitable buzzword in the corporate world. Businesses across various sectors are launching environmental, social and governance (ESG) roadmaps and targets to align with the rising call for action. Is it really as simple as making public commitments? For GHL Systems Bhd, more needs to be done.

“While launching roadmaps can be a useful guide for the implementation of ESG strategies, the real question to address is: ‘Does it really work?’ A roadmap is merely a guiding document without action. Companies should be placing more focus on the actual steps taken to achieve their ESG goals,” said Chong Kok Wai, who heads the legal, compliance and sustainability department at GHL.
