KUALA LUMPUR, 18 OCTOBER 2023 – Capital Markets Malaysia (CMM), an affiliate of the Securities Commission Malaysia, today unveiled the Simplified ESG Disclosure Guide (SEDG) for SMEs in Supply Chains. With this groundbreaking initiative, Malaysia becomes the first country globally to offer such a pivotal resource.
In collaboration with CMM, Pantas has been selected as the ESG reporting platform to champion the SEDG among Malaysian SMEs and drive its uptake.
As part of the effort, Pantas will seamlessly integrate CMM’s SEDG into its software, making its guidance available for SMEs participating in Bank Negara Malaysia’s Greening Value Chain (GVC) programme.
"We are deeply honoured by CMM's trust and partnership in this significant venture," said Max Lee, CEO of Pantas. "More than just a guide, the SEDG Adopter Programme, coupled with its training initiatives, showcases the robust support from the ecosystem. Pantas looks forward to playing an integral role in elevating ESG reporting standards for SMEs in Malaysia, and doing its part to mark a new chapter in Malaysia's SME landscape.
