TDM Reserves 514 Hectares of Land to Ensure the Success of the Nestlé Malaysia RELeaf Programme

TDM Plantation Sdn Bhd (TDMP), the plantation division of TDM Berhad (TDM), joined hands with Nestlé Malaysia in an effort to uphold the sustainability of the earth with a reserve of 514 hectares of land to plant 350,000 trees to enable the goal of Nestlé’s RELeaf Project towards 3 million trees planted throughout Malaysia by early 2025.

The replanting of 2,000 trees for the state of Terengganu at TDMP Jernih Estate, Kemaman, Nestlé Malaysia has achieved its goal of planting one million trees. The Nestlé Cares Nationwide Tree Planting programme was carried out concurrently in five locations, with the participation of 450 volunteers from TDM Plantation, Nestlé, and Sime Darby Plantation (SDP), namely at TDMP Jernih Estate in Terengganu, SDP Carey Island Estate in Selangor, SDP Gunung Mas Estate in Johor, SDP Tenom Estate in Sabah, and Hutan Simpan Bukit Bintang in Perlis. Present to launch the programme was YB Che Alias Hamid, Director of TDMP, accompanied by Encik Hamdan Ibrahim, Chief Executive Officer of TDMP, and Juan Aranols, Chief Executive Officer of Nestlé Malaysia.

TDM’s participation in Nestlé Malaysia’s Project RELeaf initiative is part of the company’s corporate social responsibility (CSR), which is highly important, especially in terms of fulfilling the objective of saving the environment through tree planting activities that can have a good influence on the environment and its rich biodiversity. Both organisations recognise the critical need to address deforestation, climate change, and natural resource depletion. They have taken an active role in establishing a sustainable future for future generations by merging forces and resources.

TDM is also supporting the “Road to 1 Million Trees 2023”, a Terengganu State-Level initiative in collaboration with the Malaysian Greening Programme through the 100 Million Tree Planting Campaign. Native plants such as Sea Apple (Kelat Jambu Laut), Bitter Bean (Petai), Pongam (Mempari), Sea Poison (Putat), and others were planted to ensure the success of this Nestlé Malaysia’s Project RELeaf.

TDM always takes proactive steps to contribute and have a positive impact in the fight against climate change in line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDGs), which are goals 13 (climate action) and 15 (life on land). All activities carried out under its collaboration with Nestlé Malaysia’s Project RELeaf programme are in accordance with the RSPO Riverbank Reserve Management and Restoration Guidelines 2018. This effort will help create conservation and biodiversity areas in palm oil plantations, thus supporting and contributing to company’s environmental, social, and governance (ESG) initiatives.
