Expert Interview: Amarjit Chhina, Chief Corporate Officer of Malaysian Resources Corporation


We interviewed Amarjit Chhina, Chief Corporate Officer of Malaysian Resources Corporation Berhad, on his wisdom and thoughts on sustainability and why organisations should embrace sustainability as a corporate strategy.


Let’s hear it from him:

1. What drives your passion for sustainability?

I wouldn’t say I am passionate about sustainability - that makes me sound like a tree-hugging environmentalist, which is very far from the truth! I am quite pragmatic though, and I do understand that as a member of the Senior Management of a listed company, I have a duty of care to my board and a fiduciary duty to act in the best interests of the company and all its shareholders. Sustainability risks are ultimately financial risks that have the potential to destroy a lot of value, so all I am really doing is my job, and obviously, doing things ethically and responsibly is also the right thing to do, which is very important to me.

2. How do you define “success” through the lens of sustainability?

3. How is corporate sustainability important for business?

4. What is the fundamental and most crucial corporate sustainability strategy?
