KUALA LUMPUR, 11 December – UEM Edgenta Berhad (“UEM Edgenta” or “Company”) has partnered with Zoo Negara Malaysia (“Zoo Negara”) by adopting two giraffes under the zoo’s ‘Adopt an Animal’ programme. This corporate responsibility effort will see the Company contribute to the giraffes’ annual welfare, including the provision of food supply and veterinary care. UEM Edgenta’s commitment to this cause is in line with its aspiration to support key stakeholders such as Zoo Negara impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, through positive and impactful philanthropic activities.

“We are proud to play our part as a responsible corporate citizen in supporting Zoo Negara by adopting the adorable pair of giraffes, ‘Mas Boy’ and ‘Mas Kira’. This initiative extends our commitment towards sustainable efforts, as well as promote good environmental, social and governance (“ESG”) practices together with strategic partners such as Zoo Negara. On behalf of the Company and public at large, I wish to commend the team at Zoo Negara for the excellent efforts throughout this challenging year and we hope more organisations and individuals will step in to assist the zoo to provide the best welfare for the animals,” said Syahrunizam Samsudin, Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of UEM Edgenta at a ceremony held earlier today.

According to the International Union for Conservation of Nature (“IUCN”), the global authority in providing knowledge on global extinction risk status of animal, fungus and plant species, the giraffe population in the wild has reduced by 40% in the last three decades, with less than 100,000 remaining today. UEM Edgenta has adopted Nubian giraffes or its scientific name Giraffa Camelopardalis which are categorised as one of the nine critically endangered subspecies in the world.

“We thank UEM Edgenta for their sincere and strong support towards the giraffes’ well-being, as well as to help Zoo Negara through this impactful programme. We welcome more contributions from corporations and the public as we navigate through the pandemic period, and contributions will go directly towards providing the perfect care for our animals at the zoo,” said Rosly@Rahmat Ahmat Lana, Deputy President of Malaysian Zoological Society, the NGO responsible in managing Zoo Negara daily operations.
