KUCHING: Bintulu Port Holdings Berhad (BPHB) Group has been working hand-in-hand with Bintulu Port Authority to address digital technology challenges and sustainability issues.
The group’s chief executive officer Datuk Mohammad Medan Abdullah said the collaboration entailed a series of engagements and sharing of resources between both the port operator and port authority to map out strategies and action plans to create values from the identified initiatives focusing on enhancing efficiencies, capacity building and mitigating potential risks of environmental impacts.
“The group is determined to contribute towards sustainable port development and it is our aspiration to transform Bintulu Port into a Smart Digital Green Port (SDGP) by 2030.
“With the combined efforts of everyone, we believe it can contribute to the core development of Sarawak’s Environmental Sustainability Agenda and in protecting our natural environment for the benefit of future generations,” he said.
Mohammad Medan said this when speaking at the Forest Landscape Restoration (FLR) Programme, jointly organised by the Forest Department Sarawak (FDS) and Bintulu Golf Club in Bintulu on Friday.
He said the group’s mission includes long-term sustainability of its business and operations based on the concept of 3Ps (planet, people, profits) besides ensuring operational excellence.
“We hold utmost priority in ensuring the group’s compliance with both internal and external environmental requirements as we are committed to reducing the negative impact of our business operations on the environment.
“We also contribute to environment conservation through various initiatives and programmes that helped to create environmental awareness,” he assured.
Commenting on the Forest Landscape Restoration (FLR) programme, he believed that it is a much needed boost and catalyst to prod the state forward to sustain the forests and environment as well as securing its future wellbeing.
“The event will help to transform the landscape surrounding the golf course into something that has the characteristics of a nature reserve which not only functions as a recreational venue but also a possible valuable wildlife habitat for a range of flora and fauna,” he said.
