Our Pillars
CIMB Foundation was launched in 2007 as the Corporate Responsibility and philanthropic platform for CIMB, marking a shift in the Group’s Corporate Responsibility strategy. CIMB began moving towards long-term programmes that bring sustainable community benefits under its four pillars: Health and Community Well-Being, Education, Economic Empowerment and Climate & Environment.

We reach out to communities to promote health, provide emergency relief, facilitate access to quality education and financial literacy, encourage sustainable income generation through entrepreneurship programmes and support climate action and environmental initiatives.

Climate and Environment
We need to take care of our environment for our future generations. Therefore, the Foundation highly encourages our community to embark on this journey by preserving and rehabilitate the nature eco-systems, reducing waste and carbon footprint, opt for renewable energy and avoid single usage of items. With this, CIMB Foundation supports:

  • Small-scale climate change mitigation projects, with a strong focus on awareness-building and community involvement
  • Ecosystem and biodiversity conservation projects, especially where there is dependence by the local communities
