In the cause of developing huge tracts of land for plantation purposes, SALCRA has always incorporate sustainability activities in its management in accordance with the mandatory legislative requirements.
In line with that, SALCRA set up an Environment and Sustainability (E&S) Unit in mid 2010 with the primary aim of enhancing its sustainability activities not only to meet legislative requirements but also to ensure that all the areas under SALCRA and those within their vicinity are well-managed environmentally. Other functions of the E&S Unit are as follows:
- Create awareness on the importance of good environmental practices.
- Encourage SALCRA’s staff especially Estate Manager to be environmental friendly in their management.
- Coordinate activities based on the concept of 3Ps – Planet, People and Profit.
In carrying out E&S activities, three (3) aspects are given prior importance:
|i. Social Aspects|
|Health Run for Staff and Project Participants|
|ii. Safety and Health|
|Safety and Health Briefing Safety and Health Training|
|iii. Good Agricultural Practices|
