As part of CIMB’s RM15 billion SME allocation for 2019 to 2020, we launched Renewable Energy Financing for SMEs in order to fulfil their financing needs to purchase solar PV system with Industrial Hire Purchase facility. This programme is set to finance up to 100% of the solar PV system cost and the maximum facility amount is capped at RM1 million. SMEs need to obtain the Net Energy Metering (NEM) approval from Sustainable Energy Development Authority (SEDA) and the property must be under CIMB property loan/financing, to be eligible for this solar financing program.

Sustainability-Linked Loans (SLLs) are loan instruments and/or contingent facilities that incentivise the borrower’s achievement of ambitious, predetermined sustainability performance targets (SPTs). Incentives are offered in the form of interest rebates, if the borrower is able to achieve the SPTs. Launched in January 2020, the SLL offering is the first in Malaysia, targeted at corporate borrowers who are keen to enhance their sustainability performance in alignment with any of the 17 SDGs. With RM3 billion earmarked for SLLs, this incentive is effective from 1 January 2020 to 31 December 2024.
