China, the second-largest economy globally and one of Malaysia’s biggest trade partners is expecting its carbon emissions to peak by 2030 and achieve carbon neutrality by 2060. Several policies have been put in place to ensure China’s transition to a just, low-carbon and sustainable economy. Many other countries are aligned with the United Nation’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals, which create a rising demand and stricter trade regulations, pushing companies to adopt sustainable practices to stay competitive.


Today, adopting sustainable and ethically conscious practices is not just a necessity for Malaysian SMEs, but also a strategic advantage. Businesses must evolve to stay competitive and meet the global supply chain demands. Businesses that pivot into sustainable and ethically conscious practices creates a transparent and just ecosystem for the mutual prosperity of Malaysians. Maybank understands this evolving landscape and is ready to help businesses navigate the transition toward a sustainable future.
