The Malaysian Sustainable Finance Initiative (MSFI) is an initiative by Capital Markets Malaysia (CMM) to support the Malaysian financial sector in further embracing the tenets of sustainable financing. MSFI is led by a Steering Committee which includes members representing stakeholder groups within the financial sector involved with financing green or sustainable projects. The objective of this Initiative is to provide the necessary impetus for industry stakeholders to facilitate capacity building, upskilling, awareness and thought leadership on sustainable finance.
This Initiative will lay the essential foundation for the long term needs of the economy and the financial system. This initiative will support market development by way of the following three activities:
- Conducting forums and meetings to increase awareness and facilitate sustainable/green finance conversations with leading actors;
- Organising capacity development workshops; and
- Providing a knowledge platform for sharing best practices, initiatives, case studies, and emerging opportunities.
