NRE presents Malakoff with appreciation award for Habitat Restoration Initiatives

14 June 2012

We are pleased to inform that the Ministry of Natural Resources & Environment (NRE) has recently presented Malakoff with an award in appreciation of its habitat restoration initiatives. The award was presented by its Deputy Minister, YBhg Tan Sri Datuk Seri Panglima Joseph Kurup, on 7 June 2012 in conjunction with World Ocean Day 2012.



The award acknowledges the environmental initiatives carried out by Malakoff, such as the Malakoff Ikan Siakap Initiative in 2010, “Kenali Penyu, Sayangi Penyu” (Turtle Conservation), the Malakoff Mangrove Initiative and Malakoff Project Aware in 2011.



In 2010, Malakoff carried out the Malakoff Ikan Siakap Initiative, which over 100,000 ikan siakap fry were released into three main tributaries of Sungai Pulai, Johor, to improve the livelihood of local fishermen and conserve the river ecosystem. Last year, Malakoff continued to champion its annual Mangrove Initiative for the third consecutive year.



In addition to this key initiative, Malakoff also undertook Project Aware, a program to promote the conservation of marine ecosystem, and the Turtle Conservation program that aimed to create awareness on the importance of protecting endangered turtles.



On 22-24 June 2012, Malakoff will embark on its latest environmental project called The Malakoff Coral Rehabilitation 2012. The project endeavors to return the ecosystem to a close approximation of its original condition prior to disturbance. This will be implemented with the development of coral nurseries and coral transplanting. The project will also emphasize on the importance of coral reefs, both in ecological and economic terms, through an educational program.


This project further asserts Malakoff’s commitment to the environment under its CSR flagship, the Malakoff Community Partnerships (MCP).
