Sustainable governance has been extensively criticized, raising concerns about its interpretation within the corporate community as well as its practical application in diverse businesses and sectors. The urgent question among these uncertainties is how companies can effectively respond to the challenges of implementing sustainable governance strategies. The purpose of this study, which employs the Resource-Based View (RBV) paradigm, is to provide guidance by highlighting key aspects of successful sustainable governance practices. This study investigates sustainable governance practices in the corporate setting and finds critical success factors through semi-structured interviews with selected Malaysian public-listed companies (PLCs). The findings emphasize the necessity of strong management quality, including internal communications and ethical leadership, as well as the construction of a strong data governance structure to support long-term business goals. The study recommends that organizations should develop ongoing strategies for the continuous improvement of sustainable governance practices.
