As a responsible corporate company, TNB Genco is committed in environmental preservation and conservation. Continuous efforts are being carried out to minimize the environmental impact and protect the well-being of the community where TNB Genco operates. The environmental policy will be our main guiding principle throughout our operations.
TNB Genco has contributed and collaborated with TNB Research Sdn Bhd on the preservation of the two Kelah sanctuaries in Tembat, Hulu Terengganu and Sungai Tiang, Hutan Royal Belum, Perak. The fact that Kelah can live and reproduce, indicates that the river is a healthy habitat with high biodiversity. The Tembat and Sungai Tiang Sanctuaries exist in conjunction with the development of the Hulu Terengganu and Sungai Perak hydro schemes.
Known as the largest flower in the world, three species can be found in Royal Belum near to our Sungai Perak HydroSchemes. The existence of Rafflesia depends on its ecological factors, if that balance is disturbed, its survival will be affected. Therefore, we at TNB Genco together with TNB Research have taken serious steps to ensure that the conservation and management of this precious species continues in the future.
Since June 2016, more than RM5mil have been allocated to preserving and sustaining the natural resources in Royal Belum, especially the Rafflesia. Among the initiatives carried out include constructing an observatory tower at Sungai Papan, building a Rafflesia boardwalk, setting up a Rafflesia information board and installing a replica of the flower.
The Sultan Azlan Shah Power Station in Manjung has been conducting an annual mangrove planting programme to improve the protection of coastal environments and encourage the production of sustainable fisheries in the Janamanjung vicinity.
Under the first phase of this initiative, 10,600 saplings were planted in an area of about four hectares in Manjung. Since 2013, over 1000 mangrove saplings are planted every year, totaling 18 800 saplings to date and another 7000 saplings to be planted in Sungai Limau, Manjung over a two-year period ending December 2022.
Another 1,000 will be planted around the coastal area of Tuanku Muhriz Power Station in Jimah Port Dickson by 2022.
