KUALA LUMPUR: CIMB Group Holdings Bhd has been ranked among top 100 most diverse and inclusive organisations globally by Thomson Reuters’ Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) Index 2018.

The ranking is based on the media company’s environmental, social, and governance (ESG) data designed to objectively measure the relative performance of more than 7,000 companies globally.

The Thomson Reuters D&I Index highlights companies leading the way in incorporating diversity and inclusion into their company strategy.

The index provides an additional lens to investment professionals and investors alike to evaluate companies for their ESG strategies, which have a bearing on long-term opportunities and investment risks, as more and more investors value the societal and business benefits of investing in diverse and inclusive organisations.

“The recognition in the Thomson Reuters D&I Index affirms our efforts to create a positive impact not only economically, but also socially and environmentally,” said CIMB Group chief executive officer Tengku Datuk Seri Zafrul Tengku Abdul Aziz in a statement.

“In terms of our people, we have consciously transformed CIMB into a workplace that attracts and retains a team of talents, currently comprising 34 nationalities spread across 15 countries,” he added.

As for ESG-related efforts, Tengku Zafrul said its corporate social responsibility arm, CIMB Foundation, had spent more than RM120 million to benefit about 700,000 lives since its inception in 2007.

“All these factors have contributed to the group’s journey in becoming a leading Asean bank.” CIMB Group said it had placed employees’ growth and well-being at the heart of its development and management initiatives.
