13 January 2018 – CMS was included in the FTSE4Good Bursa Malaysia (F4GMB) index. The F4GMB index is a globally recognised index launched by the FTSE Group, owned by the London Stock Exchange. It measures and recognises companies across the world demonstrating strong Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) practices. The F4GMB index constituents are selected from the Top 200 Malaysian stocks in the Bursa Malaysia index, screened in accordance with the transparent ESG criteria. At the time of writing there are 42 constituents in the F4GBM index.
This has been a significant achievement for CMS, as the inclusion recognises the Group for its corporate responsibility practices via an internationally recognised index. To its investors and its community, this positions CMS as a progressive and ethical company and also reduces its perceived non-financial risk profile by being a company with a more sustainably based and thus safer, long-term business model.
This achievement is a result of the efforts put by the entire Group including Board of Directors, Senior Management team and staff members. CMS will continue its Sustainability efforts in order to maintain this recognition (which is reviewed annually). This means to constantly exceed its Sustainability KPI (SKPI) targets and to contribute comprehensively towards the annual Sustainability Report. This is also in line with the Group’s mission of ‘environmentally conscious, safe & conducive workplace’.
On 13 January 2018, CMS received news that it had maintained its status as a constituent of the F4GBM Index for the second year running. This attests to the fact that the Group continues to gain good ground as it implements tangible corporate responsibility practices and establishes itself as a progressive and ethical company.
