Recently, Maybank presented its long-term sustainability commitments designed to propel the Group's growth and strengthen its position towards becoming a regional ESG leader by 2025. The commitments are part of the Sustainability strategic priority under the Group's M25 Plan and focus on achieving sustainable growth by enabling responsible transition to a low carbon economy, while at the same time, empowering communities and leading by example with good governance practices.
