Corporate Social Responsibilities (CSR)

At TDM Berhad, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is realised through our commitment to empowering the communities where we operate in; and building shared values through four areas of focus: Community, Education, Entrepreneurship and Environment. It is a crucial part of our business model as we continue to make impactful actions that address key social and environmental challenges, as well as provide added values to our stakeholders.

Huluran Kasih

At TDM Berhad, we genuinely care about our communities. We believe that sense of familiarity and togetherness adds value to our business. One of the best ways to connect with a community as an organisation is to forge closer bonds by getting to know them in person. "Huluran Kasih" is one of TDM's Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives, where our staff would visit five selected families twice a month. This effort is an ongoing philanthropic project that underlines our commitment to giving back to society.

Living Together with Elephants

Living Together with Elephants is an initiative dreamt and envisioned by TDM Plantation to cope with the intrusion and encroachment of wild elephants at oil palm estates in Kemaman and Setiu. Through this initiative, we pioneered the first wild elephant management network in Terengganu, gathering local oil palm industry players in a joint effort to overcome the issue while living harmoniously with the creatures. This network provides a platform for generating viable management strategies that can be implemented at different scales to prevent and mitigate human-elephant conflict, making oil palm sustainable for people and wildlife.


A trailblazer to our commitment towards empowering our communities, TDM Cakna is a corporate social responsibility (CSR) programme for selected students from schools in the areas where we operate our businesses. We believe that everyone can be successful in education through proper guidance and moral support. And to achieve this, we think it is imperative to ensure that students are encouraged to pursue their passion and get exposure to different worldviews.

TDM Ziarah

We recognise that true sustainable development includes the long-term wellbeing of our society. Hence, we see the need to extend a helping hand to our communities during challenging or difficult times. Ziarah Programme is another extension of our CSR initiatives where our team would volunteer to visit patients at Kuala Terengganu Specialist Hospital. This visit is done bi-monthly to check on their health progress and provide guidance on Ibadah practices/ religious duties during the time of sickness. Our Ziarah programme is also in line with one of our healthcare value propositions - to achieve the much-anticipated Ibadah-friendly hospital status.

River of Life

River of Life is an initiative spearheaded by TDM Plantation in promoting protection, restoration, and sustainable use of rivers. Our first project is to have a river located in our Tayor Estate restored and rejuvenated. This river rejuvenation approach is hoped to trickle towards bigger goals, including building awareness on our sustainability initiatives to the general public, preserving natural biodiversity, and creating corridors for rare, endangered, and threatened (RET) animals to roam freely.
