KUALA LUMPUR, September 22 – The AmBank Group continues to complement its Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) best practices with the latest initiative in highlighting the awareness of reducing carbon footprint at workplace amongst the Bank’s employees. In its sustainability journey, various awareness and education programmes have been actively conducted for its employees to appreciate the relationship between business and sustainability goals, particularly in minimising the carbon footprint.
Rohani Mustaffa, Group Chief Human Resource Officer, AmBank Group, said, “Each employee is able to play a role in caring for and healing Mother Earth. This can start with the first step of practicing and making a conscious effort to reduce, reuse, recycle in our daily routine. These changes may seem small and may not reduce our carbon footprint overnight, but with our employees’ unified perseverance coupled with our commitment to a sustainable difference will certainly have a significant long-term impact.
By raising awareness and setting high standards in the workplace, together we can encourage our staff to carry their eco habits from workplace into their home as well as make a positive difference to their personal carbon footprint. No doubt, the road ahead will be complex, as the world’s transition to a more sustainable future will require collective action and major technological breakthroughs.
In doing our part, it is imperative for AmBank to inculcate the ESG culture into its workforce and we believe by doing so, the multiplier effect will eventually prevail. The Group’s efforts are essential to ensure a sustainable future as no one can do it alone. We, at AmBank Group will remain committed in educating, integrating and creating solutions for a Green future. With the implementation of relevant sustainability -related strategies and initiatives, we pledge to grow sustainably while prioritising ESG risks and opportunities.
These strategies and initiatives are an important part of The Group’s focus on long-term shareholder value creation by advancing its goals through a Group-wide approach in sustainability,” said Datin Zameema Ariff, Head of Sustainability, AmBank Group. In order to keep the momentum going, AmBank Group has planned to develop various ESG-related webinars as part of its ongoing virtual learning series including corresponding training programmes and digital courses for its employees.
