Our Biodiversity Programme started with applying the Tree-2-Tree (1:1) replacement policy, the T2T tracking calculator and a range of engagement sessions with township teams and community tree planting events.
Since then, the program has expanded to include; a focus on planting Malaysian Species listed in the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List (where we set a 10% target for landscape plans), publication of ‘The Malaysian Threatened & Rare Tree Identification and Landscape Guideline’, dedicated seminars for our landscape and consultant teams, construction of the Elmina Rainforest Knowledge Centre, Construction of a Native Tree Nursery (to start operation in 2020), a partnership with a specialist local Environmental NGO to operate the Nursery and Rainforest Knowledge Centre and engagement with another specialist environmental International NGO to develop a Guideline for Wetlands Construction and Maintenance (due for completion in 2020).
The Malaysian Threatened and Rare Tree Identification and Landscape Guideline covers 74 IUCN Red List tree species. This Guideline is freely available for download on several websites, including our company website (link below), and the websites of Institute of Landscape Architects Malaysia (ILAM), University Putra Malaysia (UPM), Forest Research Institute of Malaysia (FRIM), and Yayasan Sime Darby (YSD) among others.
