FedEx Tree Planting In Desaru, Johor Bahru
Within the breathtaking landscape of Desaru, Johor Bahru, FedEx is actively engaged in a multifaceted initiative aimed at the preservation and revitalization of Malaysia’s rich natural heritage.
By designating a specific wildland area for attention and care, the company is not only committed to safeguarding critical ecosystems but also to ensuring that the natural beauty of this region remains intact for generations to come. This concerted effort reflects FedEx’s strong belief in the importance of environmental stewardship and its role in building a more sustainable future.
FedEx Tree Planting In Balik Pulau, Penang
Moreover, in Penang, another facet of FedEx’s forward-looking commitment to sustainability comes to the forefront. Here, the company is embarking on a transformative journey by establishing a food forest and a seed bank. This ambitious endeavor is strategically designed to promote and facilitate sustainable food production practices.
By nurturing a thriving food forest, FedEx aims to contribute to the availability of locally grown, healthy produce while mitigating the environmental impact of conventional agricultural practices. Simultaneously, the creation of a seed bank is poised to become a valuable resource for preserving the genetic diversity of vital plant species, safeguarding against biodiversity loss, and fostering resilient agricultural systems.
The Managing Director of FedEx Express Malaysia, Tien Long Woon further said:
We are committed to creating a better world by supporting efforts to preserve the environment. We are thankful for being welcomed as a member of the community for the past decades and this is part of giving back to our society. We continue to play a significant role in connecting customers in Malaysia with possibilities around the world in responsible and resourceful ways while building a more sustainable future.Tien Long Woon, Managing Director, FedEx Express Malaysia
