Climate Governance Malaysia is the Malaysian chapter of the World Economic Forum's Climate Governance Initiative.


We are a network of non-executive directors who aim to acquire the practical skills needed as long-term stewards of the business to help steer our companies through an effective climate transition strategy, taking into account the need for financial stability, increased resilience and sustainability.

Aside from non-executive directors, other stakeholders are also welcome to join the conversations and events.

Sustainable Development Goals


The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015 as a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030.

The 17 SDGs are integrated—that is, they recognize that action in one area will affect outcomes in others, and that development must balance social, economic and environmental sustainability.

Through the pledge to Leave No One Behind, countries have committed to fast-track progress for those furthest behind first. That is why the SDGs are designed to bring the world to several life-changing ‘zeros’, including zero poverty, hunger, AIDS and discrimination against women and girls.
