Yayasan PETRONAS Tree Planting Activities - Walk4Trees
The Walk4Trees is a programme funded by Yayasan PETRONAS mainly aims to make positive impacts towards employees’ health and support PETRONAS’ sustainability agenda through a nationwide tree planting initiative.
The programme is supporting the community-based rehabilitation efforts through tree planting activities at degraded areas in Permanent Forest Reserves or protected areas by the authorities.
For tree planting activities under the programme, GEC has been appointed to manage the overall coordination of planting trees at degraded sites in 11 states in Malaysia.
Phase 1 – To plant 30,000 tree saplings with local communities at 9 sites in 6 states. Tentatively in Johor, Kuala Lumpur, Pahang, Penang, Perak, and Selangor.
Phase 2 – To plant 20,000 tree saplings with PETRONAS employees and local communities at 9 sites in 9 states. Tentatively in Kedah, Kuala Lumpur, Johor, Melaka, Pahang, Sabah, Sarawak, Selangor and Terengganu.
Yayasan PETRONAS has pledged to plant a tree in designated sites for every one million steps achieved by the employees in 2020 – 2021. The target is 20 billion steps, which is equivalent to 20 000 trees to be planted. Besides that, this initiative will benefit local communities through community nurseries establishment and management and maintenance of planted trees activities.
