I am excited to be back in Malaysia, especially at this time of opportunity as we begin to emerge from the worst darkness of the pandemic to a new period of hope. Difficult times may still lie ahead, but as we begin to rebuild and strengthen our economies and societies, it is important to consider the challenges of the next decade and ensure that we create opportunity.

Before the COVID-19 pandemic, environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues had become priority concerns for governments, businesses, investors, and consumers. As the world looks forward to the post-pandemic next normal, these themes are likely to return to the top of executives’ agendas. Among them, the need to eliminate emissions of greenhouse gases may be the most difficult to address.
