          "Basic Sustainability Due Diligence All companies that CIMB does business with are subjected to basic sustainability due diligence. The purpose of this first step is to ensure that we are aware of any potential adverse environmental and social risks that a client is engaged in. This step is undertaken by CIMB’s relationship managers. The Basic Sustainability Due Diligence (BSDD) encompasses basic checks on key environmental and social risks that a client may be exposed to, and whether a client has been linked to negative social and environmental impacts in the past three years. This includes checking if a client has been cited in news reports, or linked through credible sources to negative social and environmental impacts. [...] Enhanced Sustainability Due DiligenceClients that are in high-risk sectors or are facing escalated risks as indicated via the BSDD are subjected toan enhanced sustainability due diligence (ESDD) process. The enhanced due diligence involves an internalanalysis conducted by CIMB’s Sustainability team, supplemented by external subject matter expertisewhere necessary. [...] Deforestation: The risk arising from developments and other industrial activities on forested areas, including those designated as national or state reserves and High Conservation Value/ High Carbon Stock areas as assessed by a credible technical assessor."
