On March 7, 2019 Salaam Gateway reported on an event hosted by RAM Ratings that explored the interrelationship among ESG, Islamic finance and SRI.
“RAM Rating sees Islamic finance playing a vital role in supporting the implementation of socially responsible investing (SRI, which includes environment, social and governance (ESG) matters) and funding for the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). ‘The common philosophies with SRI serve as a bridge for Islamic finance in becoming a mainstream financing source. Thanks to the concerted efforts of market practitioners in Malaysia, Indonesia and other core Islamic finance markets, the global community is slowly but surely realising the real value and benefits of combining Islamic finance with SRI,’ said Ruslena Ramli who moderated the RAMification dialogue with industry experts on 28 February 2019 hosted by RAM Ratings.”
