This strategic alliance marks a significant milestone in the promotion of green technology financing and clean energy ventures in Malaysia.

These services encompass specialized engineering consultancy for ABMB, active involvement in discussions related to green project financing, and support for ABMB's initiatives in Sustainable Energy Solutions (SES), ESG practices, and sustainability development.
In return, ABMB will provide tailored financial solutions in support of KAB's SES projects, foster strategic connections, serve as the primary banking partner for green project financing, and assist KAB in expediting its ESG and sustainability endeavors within its supply chain.
The initial term of the MoU spans two years, with provisions for extension through mutual written consent. This partnership underscores the shared commitment of KAB and ABMB to collaborate in the pursuit of a sustainable and prosperous future.
