Johor Plantations Berhad (Johor Plantations) recently launched its “One Million Roots for the Future” tree planting campaign at Taman Negara Johor, Tanjung Piai.

This campaign is in line with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal 15, which is to “protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, halt and reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity loss”.

The programme started off with the planting of 300 mangrove saplings by 60 Johor Plantations employees in honour of World Environment Day, which was recently celebrated.

This campaign serves as a precursor to Johor Plantations’ Southern Sustainability Summit, which will be held in July, and is an important step in Johor Plantations’ commitment to promoting environmental sustainability and active stewardship of domestic natural resources.

Mohd Faris Adli Shukery, Managing Director, Johor Plantations said, “As a responsible player in the agriculture sector, we are committed to planting one million trees over the next 10 years to help conserve the environment. By doing so, we are raising awareness about the importance of ESG and sustainability to Johor Plantations, enhancing our environmental credentials through sustainable development, and fostering environmental responsibility and collective action towards a greener and more sustainable future.”

“Johor Plantations has cooperated with the Malaysia Nature Society and Johor National Parks Corporation (Perbadanan Taman Negara Johor) to expand networks and promote the exchange of expertise between the parties in order to assure the success of this initiative,” Johor Plantation said in a press statement.

“This also demonstrates our mutual dedication to environmental conservation and willingness to do significant nature-related initiatives. Johor Plantations also plans to work with public and commercial organisations to participate in the campaign.”
