MSM plans to plant 1,000 mangrove trees in Penang this year


Group chief executive officer Syed Feizal Syed Mohammad said, in conjunction with the World Environment Day 2022, the sugar refiner is reiterating its commitment towards the green initiative of preserving and conserving the environment.

SEBERANG PERAI: MSM Malaysia Holdings Bhd (MSM), through wholly-owned subsidiary MSM Prai Bhd (MSM Prai), plans to plant 1,000 mangroves in stages this year in an area dedicated for tree and mangrove planting in Penang.

Group chief executive officer Syed Feizal Syed Mohammad said, in conjunction with the World Environment Day 2022, the sugar refiner is reiterating its commitment towards the green initiative of preserving and conserving the environment.

“Mangrove tree planting is an effective nature-friendly approach with benefits in conservation of a wide ecosystem including protecting water quality, stabilising river banks and fostering fish habitat as well as contributing to climate change mitigation,” Syed Feizal said in a statement yesterday. He said 200 mangrove trees were planted at mangrove small education centre located at Sungai Acheh in Nibong Tebal, Seberang Perai Selatan, yesterday.

The mangrove tree planting programme, in strategic collaboration with Penang environment department and Penang inshore fishermen welfare association, is a continuation of efforts following last year’s event where 700 mangrove saplings were successfully planted alongside the MSM Prai refinery. — Bernama
