Forest Research Institute Malaysia (FRIM) Corporate Communication Unit (CCU) has been working with the Malaysian Convention & Exhibition Bureau (MyCEB) in its tree-planting initiative, Business Tourism Green Programme, launched in 2010 in support of the government’s commitment to offset carbon emissions by 40 percent by year 2020.
Destination Asia are now offering the opportunity for groups to join in the program and plant trees to help offset carbon emissions. Apart from plantation or natural forest tree planting as corporate social responsibility activity, an organization may also opt for memorial tree planting to mark specific events for which the planting location will be in a prime area of FRIM. The Institute has been declared a Natural Heritage Site in 2009 and National Heritage in 2012, and therefore is a great honor to be able to plant trees in FRIM which will be preserved for centuries.
All necessary planting tools are provided by FRIM and participants are encouraged to be actively involved. The minimum number of trees for corporate tree planting activity is 30 and includes a plaque to mark the planting activity/occasion.
