The ‘One Earth, One Quest’ program is also able to provide a new experience to all participants because the mangrove forest is considered as food zone for diverse species and it is rich in nutrients that come from the river and the sea. So it is important for us to preserve this resource.
The deterioration of our precious natural resources is a reality that should never be taken lightly as it affects everyone and everything. Our environmental conservation efforts go beyond handing out donations to various conservation movements and organizations as we also initiate activities to preserve and beautify our precious natural environment that are under threat.
AMAL also collaborates with various organizations including government agencies, NGOs and educational institutions to organize activities such as tree-plantings, cleaning of natural environments and awareness campaigns. One of the major concerns in reducing environmental impact is wastage, namely food wastage. To address this issue, we have collaborated with SWCorp [formally known as Solid Waste Management and Public Cleansing Corporation (PPSPPA)] in raising awareness on reducing wastage as well as making the 3Rs (reduce, reuse and recycle) a habit among Malaysians. The two-day campaign in support of SWCorp which took place in April this year was just one of our efforts to realize SWCorp’s goal in aiming towards a clean, beautiful and environmentally sustainable nation by 2020.
We constantly strive to instill passion for leaving the planet cleaner and greener by constantly mitigating on how to minimize the impact on the environment in the other areas of our CR activities be it Education, Community or Bantuan Rumah.
ONE EARTH, ONE QUEST
Launched in 2014, the ‘One Earth, One Quest’ is our latest environmental conservation initiative which saw the donation and planting of 2,200 mangrove tree saplings in Tasik Sulaman Forest Reserve in Tuaran, Sabah. Themed “Mangroves, Our Priceless Treasure”, the program jointly organized with Sabah Wetlands Conservation Society (SWCS) involved about 50 volunteers from Bank Islam as well as 40 hearing-impaired students from SMK Datuk Peter Montujin in Penampang, Sabah.
A program held annually in conjunction with Earth Day (on and around April 22) where we organize ‘green’ activities such as beach cleaning, awareness talks, education programs as well as handing out donations towards environmental causes.
