TotalEnergies Malaysia has initiated a mangrove rehabilitation project in partnership with the Malaysian Nature Society (MNS) by planting 250 trees in PMU 500kV Jimah East (JMHE), Port Dickson, Negeri Sembilan.
This is part of TotalEnergies Malaysia’s commitment to contribute towards sustainability and low carbon economy push in the country.
Mangroves are well known to have both environmental and economic benefits. They not only serve as good carbon absorption and sequesters carbon dioxide, but also offer natural flood prevention and are important habitats for wildlife.
The rich biodiversity of mangrove forests then offers socio-economic benefits across fisheries and tourism industries.
“TotalEnergies is a global multi-energy company that places sustainable development of the climate and the community in our operations and activities.
As we collectively move forward into a low carbon economy, it is important to also take into consideration the resilience of the environment and whether they have the capability to support the transition that we are making” – Jennifer Li, Managing Director of TotalEnergies Malaysia.
Mangrove forests are important in sustaining community livelihoods, providing a habitat for wildlife to thrive in, and is fundamental to mitigate climate change impacts as well as offset carbon emissions.
On top of environmental conservation initiatives, TotalEnergies Malaysia remains committed to help Malaysia achieve its carbon neutrality goals by 2060 through the implementation of low carbon energy and mobility solutions, support the increase in renewable energy capacity and investing in carbon sinks as well as carbon neutrality projects.
