Biodiversity overview

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.

With the increasing impact of urbanization, urban areas have a key role in the preservation and enhancement of biodiversity. Green spaces can be used for conservation and genetic banks. They can also be used as areas to connect people to nature, mitigate the impacts of climate change and provide urban habitats for select fauna.
To promote the conservation of Malaysian IUCN flora species to enhance urban environments and to see some of these species eventually removed from the IUCN Red List (rare and threatened tree species).

Eco-Efficiency programme overview

Aimed at optimising environmental performance resulting from our business activities, the Eco-Efficiency Program combines together our Carbon Footprint Project (CFP), Operational Water, Waste and Recycling Management Initiatives. It covers all 23 Sime Darby Property Operating Units across Property Development, Investment Management and Hospitality & Leisure. Through the program, we:

  • Track, monitor and audit operational carbon emissions, operational water usage and operational waste generation and recycling.
  • Identify and execute optimisation opportunities; and
  • Replicate best practices and consistent systems and tools
  • Minimising our impact towards climate change. We are aware of the potential risks from a changing environment as a result of climate change, including potential exposure to climate related extreme weather events and the need to inculcate further resilience in our business value chain and products.
  • Progressive operational cost savings.
