Climate Governance Malaysia

Climate Governance Malaysia (CGM) is the country chapter for the World Economic Forum's Climate Governance Initiative, whose purpose is specifically to raise awareness about the top financial risks arising from the climate emergency amongst non-executive directors. This Initiative has laid out 8 clear and comprehensive principles to help guide boards of directors. CGM was the second country chapter in the world to be launched and first in Asia.

Since its launch in May 2019, in the past four years, CGM has organised for over 200 events and has almost 5,000 registered subscribers to our newsletters. CGM also launched the ASEAN Climate Governance Network in February 2022 and is recognised as being one of the leading authorities in climate governance in this region.

We are housed virtually under the Institute of Corporate Directors Malaysia and collaborate closely with multiple stakeholders including the CEO Action Network, Institutional Investors Council, key ministries and agencies.
