RepRisk releases Special Report on Malaysia

Report analyzes the environmental, social, and governance (ESG) risks in Malaysia’s three key sectors 

Zurich, Switzerland – May 18, 2016 – RepRisk, the leading provider of dynamic business intelligence on ESG risks, has released its Special Report on Malaysia, the third in a series of reports on the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), an economic and political organization of ten countries.

The report highlights the ESG challenges facing Malaysia and its three most exposed sectors – Food and Beverage, Forestry, and Utilities.

These sectors all play a crucial role in the country’s economy, yet have been closely linked to issues related to indigenous people and local participation as well as to corruption and forced labor.

Over the coming months, RepRisk will be publishing Special Reports on other ASEAN countries. The first report in the ASEAN series was published in December 2015 on Indonesia. The second report on the Lower Mekong Delta was published in February 2016 and covered Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, and Vietnam.
