Nestlé Malaysia and Yayasan Sime Darby’s Kinabatangan RiLeaf Project has helped protect Sabah’s Kinabatangan River and the wildlife in the area since 2011, and here is how we do it:
1) Restoring the Environment
Since 2011, over 680,000 trees have been planted, covering 2,400 hectares of degraded forest areas along the lower Kinabatangan River in Sabah.
The areas which we have helped restore form a buffer zone which aims to filter soil sediments and agricultural fertilizer run-offs which flow into the river. This allows the Kinabatangan to repair itself over time.
2) Supporting Communities
The Kinabatangan RiLeaf Project supports local villagers along the Kinabatangan River through its KAPOK programme (Komuniti Anak Pokok Kinabatangan).
Through KAPOK, local villagers generate additional income by planting seedlings of trees native to the environment, which the Kinabatangan RiLeaf Project then purchases for reforestation efforts.
3) Preserving Biodiversity
Through our tree planting initiative, Nestlé ensures that the Kinabatangan River continues to be a Corridor of Life for Sabah and home to its unique biodiversity.
The restored zones form a wildlife corridor which allows wildlife to thrive and forage in their natural habitat while reducing the conflict between humans and wildlife.
The Kinabatangan River is an important ecoregion and is home to over 250 bird, 50 mammal, 20 reptile species and 1056 plant species. It is also one of only two places on the planet where 10 primate species including the Orang Utan, the Proboscis Monkey and the Borneo Gibbon can be found.
Today we will hold our 150th Annual General Meeting for shareholders.
The speeches by Nestlé Chairman Peter Brabeck-Letmathe and Nestlé Chief Executive Officer Ulf Mark Schneider will be webcast live, starting shortly after 14:30 CEST. The replay of the webcast will be available shortly after it finishes.

WHEN DID YOU JOIN NESTLÉ & WHAT LED YOU TO PURSUE YOUR CAREER AS A FACTORY MANAGER?
I started my research technologist career in Nestlé R&D Centre Singapore in September 1996. Throughout the 20 years, I have been inspired by the value creation directly attributable to manufacturing. I see that a Factory Manager’s responsibility in leading a team to overcome everyday challenges helped to develop people’s capability. I liked this dynamism for its continuous learning opportunity and I derive great satisfaction from it.
