EXIM Bank’s Sustainability Team
Climate change is a pressing global challenge. As we confront this crisis, Conference of the Parties (COP28) emerges as a crucial forum for international collaboration. Among those who are expected to attend the forum in Dubai this week are Bill Gates, King Charles III, Rishi Sunak, John Kerry, Simon Stiell, Madeleine Diouf Sarr, to name a few. Notably, we take pride in the fact that for the very first time EXIM Bank, co-organised a panel at COP28 under the theme: Leveraging Islamic Finance for Sustainability. This initiative reflects the Bank’s commitment in creating global impact and advocating Islamic Finance in shaping sustainable financial practices. Our President / Chief Executive Officer’s statement featured at COP28: “Acts of environmental degradation are passed on to future generations who have no say on the decisions that we make today. Our role is to remove developmental distortions in all of its different forms. Islamic finance and values provide the template to achieve a just equilibrium between resources and claims.” – Arshad Ismail, PCEO EXIM Bank Malaysia
