Biodiversity Conservation

The Group’s sustainability and environment protection milestones include the conservation of the biodiversity richness of Bukit Kibos, maintenance and protection of the riparian buffer zones of the Segama River and also retention of designated High Conservation Value (HCV) areas in the group estates.

As part of the Integrated Pest Management Programme, beneficial plants are cultivated widely. Beneficial plants like Antigonon leptopus, Turnera subulata and Cassia cobanensis are conserved to enhance the natural predators and parasitoid population for the control of leaf eating pests. The IPM approach reduces the usage of pesticides in the operations.
