KUALA LUMPUR, June 21 (Bernama) -- MNRB Holdings Berhad (MNRB) has entered the second phase of its Tree Planting Programme (Tree of Tomorrow) to fulfil its pledge to plant at least 2,500 trees nationwide.

MNRB president and group chief executive officer Zaharudin Daud said under the new phase, MNRB has chosen Kolej Pengajian Alam Bina (KAB) of Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM) to be the new home for 250 trees.

“The Tree of Tomorrow programme goes beyond planting trees. It symbolises our collective responsibility towards the environment which we hope will contribute to building a lasting legacy of environmental sustainability for future generations”, he said in a statement today.

Continuing collaboration with the Forestry Department of Peninsular Malaysia (JPSM), the initiative, which now includes UiTM, is part of MNRB’s efforts to raise awareness about environmental stewardship and to contribute to a sustainable future through the restoration of the natural landscape. 

Zaharudin said the participation of MNRB employees as volunteers alongside representatives from UiTM and JPSM, formed the heart of this project and fostered a culture of responsible citizenship within the organisation.

“We hope to nurture a sustainable mindset and encourage more individuals to play a part in protecting our environment. Creating lasting positive impacts for Malaysia demands sustained dedication and action across all fronts.

“The passion and commitment of the Group’s volunteers, coupled with the expertise and support from the partners, are paving the way for a greener future,” he said.

Meanwhile JPSM Head of Agroforestry and Reforestation Section Muhamad Hafni Ahmad Saraji said the partnership between MNRB, UiTM and JPSM was a shining example of how different sectors could unite for a shared cause, enhancing local biodiversity and fostering community engagement.

“This can instil a sense of responsibility and appreciation for environmental conservation at all levels. By contributing towards greening Malaysia, we collectively advance towards our shared Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) 2030 commitments.

“We are excited to be part of this movement and look forward to witnessing the positive impact it will bring,” he said.
