Full Release: Kuala Lumpur, 7 July – UEM Edgenta Berhad (“UEM Edgenta” or “Company”) continues its commitment and support towards building a sustainable future for all through its Environment, Social & Governance (“ESG”) initiatives.

The Company, through its Corporate Responsibility programme, has recently deployed volunteers to Zoo Negara Malaysia (“Zoo Negara”) to participate in the ‘Glow the Zoo Negara’ initiative which is aimed to improve the landscape within Zoo Negara.

Over 60 volunteers from UEM Edgenta's various business units carried out a variety of activities throughout Zoo Negara, including painting the bridge area and road curb, cleaning animal enclosure areas, benches, drains, fences and light modification work. The purpose is to make Zoo Negara a conducive landmark for visitors.

“We believe that this is an important programme for us to participate in, and I am happy that this programme has received overwhelming support from Edgenta Stars across Malaysia as we strive to contribute to the communities where we operate in. I am delighted to see our volunteers enjoy the programme. We hope that our efforts would help create a sustainable ecosystem for future generation, and at the same time instill the spirit of volunteerism amongst Edgenta Stars,” said Syahrunizam Samsudin, Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of UEM Edgenta.

As an important landmark in Malaysia, Zoo Negara provides an absolute experience to visitors with over 3,749 specimens from 254 species of mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, invertebrates and fishes housed within its walls, including the UEM Edgenta’s adopted giraffes, Mas Kira and Mas Boy.

Previously, UEM Edgenta contributed ten units of visitor benches as well as renewed its sponsorship of Zoo Negara’s ‘Adopt an Animal’ programme with the giraffes.
