At Funding Societies Malaysia, we believe that we have a role to conduct business responsibly and in line with the triple-bottom-line approach of sustainability. This means we aim to find a balance between economic, environmental, and social factors both within our internal operations as well as in our financing activities.
As a FinTech lending platform, we can create a positive impact through the MSMEs we choose to fund. We intend to increase the awareness and exposure of our MSMEs to topics of sustainability and responsible business practices. We have identified three key sustainability themes where we will prioritise our sustainability initiatives: Climate Change, Circular Economy and SDGs and Inclusion. We understand that we are all on a journey towards sustainability - some are more mature in their activities while others are only just starting up. Regardless of what sustainability stage SMEs are in, we want to support SMEs that are also making notable contributions in these areas.
