MITI and UN launch online tool to help investors find sustainable investment opportunities in Malaysia
The map highlights 15 Investment Opportunity Areas (IoAs) distributed among six sectors that offer promising potential for impact
The Ministry of Investment, Trade and Industry (MITI) and the United Nations (UN) in Malaysia have launched the Malaysia SDG Investor Map, an online tool to help private investors find investment opportunities that align with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). UNDP led the development of the map with support from MITI and the Malaysian Investment Development Authority (MIDA).
The map highlights 15 Investment Opportunity Areas (IoAs) distributed among six sectors that offer promising potential for impact: technology and communications and infrastructure among them. Its purpose is to assist socially responsible investors seeking opportunities that are both environmentally sustainable and financially sound.
The project was funded by the Joint Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Fund and involved bilateral consultations and panel meetings involving MITI, MIDA, Ministry of Finance, Khazanah National, Bank Negara, MDEC and the Malaysian Technology Development Corporation (MTDC), among others.
Fabienne Michaux, Director, UNDP SDG Impact, highlighted how “the map provides on-the-ground market intelligence where investors and policymakers can channel capital to accelerate progress towards sustainable development”.
