It is a RM10 million funding programme by Ministry of Finance and Yayasan Hasanah to upscale innovative solutions with measurable social and environmental goals.

Funded by the Ministry of Finance (MoF) and managed by Hasanah, HSEF2023 is open to all businesses registered in Peninsular Malaysia, Sabah or Sarawak that aim to grow its commercial as well as social and environmental goals. In its debut last year, HSEF2022 disbursed a total of RM4.64 million to 32 entities.

This year, HSEF2023 seeks to widen the coverage of recipients to include all types of scalable enterprises that meet social and/ or environmental objectives.
