Discover best practices for the Governance aspect of ESG and how technology makes it a reality.

We bring together industry leaders, experts, and key stakeholders to discuss the latest trends, challenges, and opportunities in sustainable property development in Malaysia. As we witness a growing awareness of the importance of environmental, social, and governance considerations in business decision-making, the property sector resists this trend.

In fact, ESG has become increasingly relevant to property developers in Malaysia today as they face mounting pressure from investors, regulators, and customers to adopt sustainable practices and demonstrate their commitment to creating value for all stakeholders.

In this conference, we will explore the ways in which ESG can create business value for property developers by helping them identify and manage risks, improve their reputation, and unlock new growth opportunities. We aim to provide property developers with the knowledge, tools, and insights they need to navigate the complex ESG landscape and drive positive change in the industry.

We invite you to join us for this conference of thought-provoking discussions, networking opportunities, and interactive sessions, where you will have the chance to learn from and engage with some of the most knowledgeable and experienced experts in the field. We look forward to seeing you at the ESG and Property Development Conference and working together towards a more sustainable future for the property sector in Malaysia.
