Our Pillar Integrity

CORPORATE GOVERNANCE INITIATIVES

Being an organisation entrusted by the State Government to bring about socio-economic change for the people, the Group is committed to leading the way towards good corporate governance practices.

Toward this end, the Group has placed efforts in strengthening integrity practices within the organisation, which aligns with the Government's drive, by negating bribery, embezzlement, power abuse, fraud, and other negative factors that hinder the development of an organisation. With integrity firmly in place, the Group is committed to achieving its goal of improving the quality of life of the people efficiently and expeditiously.

69 YSG Annual Report 2022

WHISTLEBLOWING POLICY

In striving to conduct its business with integrity, competence, and professionalism while achieving the highest level of effectiveness and excellence, effective 23 October 2019, the Management has adopted a Whistleblowing Policy to handle complaints of malpractices and crimes in the Group.

This Policy provides an avenue for reporting by the staff suspected misconduct, illegal acts, or failure to act within the Group's General Terms and Conditions.

The Policy encourages staff of the Group and others to come forward and voice their concerns about any actual or potential improper conduct which compromises the Group's aspirations.

INTEGRITY REPORTS

The Group provides two reports periodically to the Sabah State Government. The reports are the following:

• Integrity Report and Anti-Corruption Plan Development/Implementation Status Report. This report is submitted to the Sabah State Integrity Unit every four months.

• Chief Minister's Department Anti-Corruption Plan Implementation Status Report 2019-2023. This report is submitted to the office of the Deputy State Secretary (Administration) annually.

The Group is also a member of the Chief Minister's Department 2019-2023 Anti-Corruption Plan Performance Coordination Meeting, where each organisation must present their Anti-Corruption Plan Implementation Status Report.

70

The Group's Anti-Corruption Plan is currently in the draft stage. The provisions in the Plan are meant to encourage business and other activities in the Group to be carried out in a corruption-free environment, to encourage the Heads of Divisions/Zones/Units to take adequate measures to prevent corruption in their respective offices and promote better corporate governance and legal compliance.

The Management strongly believes the Plan, once in place, will encourage better integrity in the organisation, including strengthening businesses' awareness and ability to mitigate corruption risks.

71 YSG Annual Report 2022
YAYASAN SABAH GROUP ANTI-CORRUPTION PLAN

IMPLEMENTATION OF THE GOOD REGULATORY PRACTICE POLICY

Effective 23 August 2021, the State Government issued General Circular No. 1 of 2021 regarding implementing the State Policy on Good Regulatory Practice.

A special team was formed at the Group level to manage changes through implementing the Policy. A Regulations Coordinator was also established to coordinate the Good Regulatory Practices (GRP) process, documentation, implementation monitoring, revising ordinance, enactment, regulations and guidelines, and enforcement. The GRP provides a systematic application of tools and procedures that the Management utilises to ensure that regulatory outcomes are effective, transparent, inclusive, and sustained. The Regulations Coordinator also functions as the Secretariat of the GRP Committee in the Group.

YSG Annual Report 2022 72

YAYASAN SABAH GROUP GIFT ACCEPTANCE POLICY

The Policy was approved on 1 December 2020. The Policy ensures that the Management and staff of the Group adhere to the organisation's code of conduct in giving or accepting gifts or other such tokens of appreciation.

The Policy requires the Management and employees to demonstrate the highest standards of ethics and conducts regarding potential and existing vendors, suppliers, and customers. The Enrichment and Monitoring Unit is the Secretariat for implementing the Policy.

73 YSG Annual Report 2022

CORPORATE GOVERNANCE CHARTER

The Group's business dealings are guided by Innoprise Corporation Sdn. Bhd. Corporate Governance Charter. The approval of the Charter by the Board of Directors, in conjunction with the Company's Memorandum and Articles of Association and the Malaysian Code on Corporate Governance, provides authority and practices for sound corporate governance.

The Charter specifies the Group's governance structure, the internal regulations of the Board of Directors and its committees, and other essential matters. It directs the Board of Directors in carrying out their responsibility to monitor the Group's business for the benefit of shareholders.

The Group strives for the highest ethical standards, including doing what it says, sharing results accurately and transparently and adhering to all laws, rules, and regulations that govern the Group's operations.

The Board recognises that good corporate governance is a means to an end, improving the Group's capacity to establish and achieve its goals.

The Group believes that the following are the guiding principles of good corporate governance :

• Fairness

• Transparency

• Accountability

Minority shareholders, investors, and other stakeholders are treated fairly and have their interests considered.

Disclosure of information - financial, organisational, governance and related transactions - is adequate and timely for stakeholders to assess the organisation's performance.

Senior Management is accountable to the Board of Directors for achieving plans and implementing approved policies that ensure the safeguarding of assets and the Group's financial viability. In turn, the Board of Directors is accountable to the shareholders and other stakeholders.

• Responsibility

Clear lines of responsibility need to exist regarding delegations of authority and which actions or decisions require Board or shareholder approval. Responsibility must be attributed to having accountability for results.

YSG Annual Report 2022 74

INTERNAL AUDIT

The Group will continue developing effective risk oversight and management procedures to aid decisionmaking. This is accomplished by emphasising the action plans and controls adopted due to internal audit findings.

Internal auditing gives insight into policies and procedures while assisting the Board and Management by checking internal controls such as operational effectiveness, risk mitigation controls, and compliance with applicable laws and regulations. The risks in question are not only compliance-related but also financial and operational.

The Group Audit Committee is an independent observer, ensuring that the audit reports' findings are free of conflicts of interest and recommending appropriate corrective actions.

THE BEST INVESTMENT FOR HUMAN CAPITAL

The pursuit of enhancing human capital investment through education has been the cornerstone of the Group's identity since its establishment in 1966. Our unwavering dedication towards providing quality education and educational infrastructure for Malaysians in Sabah has been well-documented in the annals of the State's history. The Group's symbiotic relationship with the State's academic development is a testament to our longstanding commitment towards fostering opportunities and growth in the education sector.

Through financing educational programmes, the Group has effectively executed initiatives encompassing preschool, primary, secondary, and tertiary education.

Additionally, the Group extends financial aid in the form of bursaries, scholarships, and study loans to students at the secondary and tertiary levels.

Through our wholly-owned entities, University College Sabah Foundation (UCSF) and Kolej Teknologi Yayasan Sabah (KTYS), we present an array of highly-recognised Certificate, Diploma, and Degree programmes. These courses provide students with diverse educational pathways to hone their competencies and acquire the requisite skills that align with the job market demands.

The Group's affirmation of "Education Empowers, Knowledge Enriches" maxim underscores the significance of perpetual learning in augmenting knowledge, competencies, and proficiencies.

For over five and a half decades, we have steadfastly committed to invest in education. Since half a century ago, we were at the forefront of spearheading the development of educational opportunities. Even today, we continue to pursue this noble cause relentlessly, nurturing our students to attain their full potential as successful future citizens.

The Tun Haji Mohd. Fuad Stephens Borneo Research Library operated by the Group, represents a veritable information and expertise treasure trove. As a cornerstone in fostering lifelong learning, the research library enables users to tap into extensive information reserves, laying the foundation for future lifelong learning systems.

Rural Kindergarten

The rural kindergarten started in 1988 through the People Development Programme at six centres throughout the State. The villagers set up these kindergartens with the help of equipment allocations and teachers' salaries from the Group.

In 2011, the Group received the National Key Result Areas Fund (RM3.17 million) from the Federal Government to set up rural kindergarten buildings and the related infrastructure. The Group incurs operating expenses such as administrative and teachers' salaries. All NKRA kindergarten buildings were constructed on village lands or by individuals with a ten-year commitment agreement, allowing the Group to operate on their land (2012-2022). Currently, the Group operates 13 preschool centres throughout the State.

SCHOLARSHIPS/BURSARY/STUDY LOAN

Scholarship sponsorship is a programme that provides financial assistance to students taking priority courses. The programmes are as follows:

1967–2004

Overseas Scholarships/Bursary

It was the Group’s flagship programme and lasted until 2004. The new offer ended in 2002. The end of overseas scholarship sponsorship is consistent with the government’s policy of limiting students from studying abroad. On the other hand, loan sponsorship is still going, albeit limited.

It was officially opened on 6 June 1980 by the then Head of State, Tun Haji Mohd. Adnan Robert.

The research library focuses on Borneo-related themes or disciplines of study. It is open to the general public, and its resources are tailored to meet research and academic needs. At the same time, the library serves as an information resource for various programmes, projects or interests of the Group.

The Library will continue towards achieving its targeted 50:50 ratio in the areas of collections distribution, floor allocations, collection formats and acquisition expenditure. The 50:50 ratio is essential to the Library’s commitment to enhancing its status and standing as the primary resource centre in Borneo.

Additionally, the migration to KOHA is a significant event for the Library. It will reduce IT annual maintenance expenditure for the Library and create confidence among the staff in their ability and perseverance in developing a different library system from the one the Library has been using since 1996, all without consultation from private IT companies. However, the most significant gain from the migration is acquiring of new knowledge and experience for staff, more so skills imparted to the new generation of staff.

Finally, the Library will also double its effort to upgrade its facilities and the library environment to be more representable, portraying the good image of the Group.

GLOPEC Programme 2023

Sabah Entrepreneurs at the Forefront of Expansion Efforts

The GLOPEC programme's direction for 2023 is centred on expanding opportunities for Sabah entrepreneurs. By showcasing their products, the programme aims to realise sales worth RM30 million over the next two years (2023 to 2025).

Its vision for 2023 places Sabah entrepreneurs front and centre, facilitating their expansion while establishing mutually beneficial partnerships with strategic collaborators in global markets.

In addition to the emphasis on Sabah entrepreneurs, the programme seeks to forge partnerships and explore untapped markets, such as Korea. China's recently opened borders also offer the programme a new avenue for growth. The promotion of these products in China was temporarily halted from 2021 to 2022 due to COVID-19 border closures.

HOSPITALITY & RECREATION

The DVSC was created to accommodate various visitors, including researchers and organised groups of school children participating in Environmental Educational Programmes (EEP). Aside from these, the Centre occasionally receives officials and tourists interested in natural history and general interest tourists. Tourists who prefer luxury accommodation and service are recommended to stay at Borneo Rainforest Lodge (BRL), as DVSC also functions to complement BRL. Since the opening of DVSC in 1986, the number of visitors had generally increased, except for a few years when the numbers dropped significantly for specific reasons.

Visitors at DVSC

Visitors

For DVSC, from 1987 to 2002, the number of visitors arriving showed an increasing trend. However, in 2003 the number of visitors dropped due to the SARS outbreak, which also affected Malaysia’s tourism industry. From 2004 to 2010, the graph shows a steady increase in visitors’ arrival to the Centre. In 2010, a Special EEP was conducted through the Conservation Fund. The programme contributed to the high number of arrivals to Danum Valley that year.

The issuance of a travel advisor following the Tanduo stand-off caused a decrease in arrivals to Danum Valley in 2013, while the COVID-19 pandemic caused a decline in arrivals in 2020 and 2021. The year 2019 has seen the most visitors to DVSC, with 4,363 arrivals.

A similar pattern can also be seen for BRL since its opening in 1994. On 3 February 2020, the first positive case of COVID-19 in Malaysia was reported. As positive cases increased, the Malaysian Government enforced the Movement Control Order (MCO) effective 18 March 2020. Following that, the number of visitors to BRL dropped significantly in 2020 and 2021. In 2022, the tourism industry was slowly increasing. Local tourism activities were active, and more countries opened their boundaries to allow international tourists.

A HAVEN FOR FLORA & FAUNA

MBCA is a tremendously valuable botanical resource. It is also the last refuge for many species lost elsewhere because of habitat disturbance. The number of known species is considerable, representing only a fraction of the actual number. Many of Maliau’s species are endemic to Sabah or Borneo and many are very rare, with some only found in Maliau.

Positioning MBCA as an ecotourism destination will attract revenue from visitors eager to learn about the rainforest ecosystem. Since 1998, the visitors’ arrival trend has increased positively with better road access to MBCA from major towns such as Kota Kinabalu and Tawau.

However, the visitors’ trend has slightly decreased due to the COVID-19 pandemic over the last three years. In 2022, the number of visitors to MBCA totalled 3,458, reflecting a consistent upward trend from the previous year and instilling hope that tourism activities have begun to recover from the effects of the pandemic. Known as an ecotourism destination, most visitors come to Maliau for jungle trekking, study tours, research activities, and familiarisation visits.

IMBAK CANYON The Bornean Hidden Valley

Located in the heart of Sabah, the establishment of ICCA as a conservation area was materialised after efforts were made to explore the biodiversity in the region through several scientific expeditions, which revealed exceptional biodiversity and conservation value besides being unique in terms of geomorphology.

The Canyon's northern region showcases a pristine valley of lowland forest enveloped by steep sandstone ridges, reaching heights of up to 1000m. In contrast, the southern part boasts mountainous terrain, with its pinnacle, Gunung Kuli, standing tall at an impressive elevation of 1527m.

The Imbak River drained the Canyon, creating beautiful, stepped waterfalls. This river is joined by another smaller river, the Kangkawat River, coming from the slopes of Gunung Kuli to the south before the Imbak River flows out at the lowest point of the valley, near the Imbak Canyon Studies Centre (ICSC), to join the mighty Kinabatangan River.

ICCA's development was propelled by strong partnerships forged with local and international organisations. PETRONAS played a pivotal role in this development by constructing the ICSC and providing substantial funding for numerous conservation programs through the Yayasan Sabah Group-PETRONAS Imbak Canyon Conservation Partnership. Additionally, PETRONAS generously supported the formulation of the Imbak Canyon Strategic Management Plan, further demonstrating its commitment to ICCA's growth and sustainability.

Imbak Canyon Conservation Area (ICCA) covers an area of 123,075ha, and 27,599ha of the total area remains an undisturbed virgin forest reserve.

TRCA Scientific Exploration

7-17 June 2022

During the scientific exploration, approximately 160 participants from various government departments, nongovernmental organisations, and local academic institutions explored the biodiversity and abundance of natural resources in the TRCA. The expedition aimed to evaluate the potential for research activities and determine its suitability as an eco-tourism destination.

The findings serve as the key elements for formulating TRCA’s strategic management plan, including comprehensive development strategies and conservation activities to preserve its natural assets. In other contexts, the completed data results collected from the exploration will be published as articles, proceedings, reference books such as coffee table books and the productions of short documentaries.

YSG Annual Report 2022 195

TRCA’s reputation as a well-known research and ecotourism institution in Sabah was boosted with to the discovery of numerous new species of flora and fauna, cementing its tagline “A Refreshing and Rejuvenating Rainforest Eden.” To ensure the programme’s success, the Group has formed partnerships with the Sabah Forestry Department, Wildlife Department, WWF-Malaysia, Sabah Parks, and educational institutions, such as University Malaysia Sabah and University Technology MARA.

The Sabah Nature Club also held its EEP involving 20 students and two teachers from SK Silam, Lahad Datu. The EEP curriculum aims to increase youth awareness of the importance of sustainability by providing opportunities for students to experience and learn about nature to inspire and nurture future scientists, engineers, artists, and others to care for the environment. Among the activities carried out to provide a holistic learning experience for the students were bird watching and river ecology. Through the programme, the students developed a deeper appreciation for nature and became advocates for environmental conservation.

MOVING FORWARD

Development and Maintenance

The Group will upgrade the current facilities, such as the camping site, hostel, and surrounding facilities. In line with achieving the aim of being one of the best camping sites in Sabah and the leading environmental education site, the Group also aimed to construct a few more visitor facilities.

Hospitality and Recreation

From 2009 until 2022, TRCA had 18,467 visitors locally and internationally. A steady flow of tourist arrival indicates that TRCA could be a tourist site destination, attracting many prospective parties into collaboration with TRCA.

Administration and Finance

Taliwas aims to establish itself as a prominent conservation area for research, training, education, and the protection of forests. In addition to enhancing biodiversity, it also serves as a vital water catchment area for Lahad Datu and contributes to climate mitigation efforts.

A Strategic Management Plan will be developed to ensure that TRCA has a clear roadmap for achieving its targets. Additionally, the Group aims to adopt a sustainable financial system in its day-to-day operations by considering environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors when making investment decisions in the financial sector. This approach encourages longer-term investments in sustainable economics and projects.

Furthermore, TRCA has plans to transition to a green power supply method, which falls under the umbrella of renewable energy and offers the greatest environmental benefits. Renewable energy may include utilising sources such as solar power and micro-hydro.

SILAM COAST CONSERVATION AREA

Where the Wildlife of Land and Sea Meets

The coastal forest of SCCA that fringes Darvel Bay is considered one of the world’s most biologically diverse and ecologically important marine areas. SCCA is also part of the Coral Triangle, renowned for its exceptional coral reef ecosystems that support a staggering array of marine life.

A Research Centre for Marine & Mangrove Ecosystem

The montane ultramafic forest ecosystem of Mt. Silam behind it and the surrounding crystal-clear seawater and magnificent coral reefs at the front, besides its proximity to LahadDatu town, about 15 kilometres away, makes SCCA suitable for marine-based environmental education and recreational activities.

PATROLLING & SURVEILLANCE

Patrolling and surveillance were conducted regularly in SCCA and its surrounding areas. Patrolling activities are not confined to the terrestrial area but also extended to the marine area surrounding SCCA (proposed marine boundary area).

The significant threats encountered during the terrestrial patrolling activities are the encroachment of the SCCA boundary by illegal settlers and orchards or plantation owners. Illegal poaching incident is rare in SCCA.

In the marine area, the frequent threats encountered are trawlers vessels in close vicinity of the SCCA coastal area. In addition to the patrolling activities, the staff also monitor the Tumunong Hallo rehabilitation plot.

203 YSG Annual Report 2022

The number of visitors shows an increasing trend from 2016 to 2019. However, the number of visitors in 2020 declined drastically due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Two years after the pandemic, the number of visitors has increased steadily.

SCCA Open Day

25-26 June 2023

The SCCA open-day programme aims to promote the area as a destination for research, environmental education, recreation, and ecotourism. Through this initiative, the Group aims to strengthen its relationship with the local community, encouraging them to be guardians of the area.

The Group has conveyed to the surrounding community the economic opportunities generated through employment and the benefits of having tourists and researchers in the area. By highlighting these opportunities, they aim to foster a sense of ownership and pride among the community members.

One of the key aspects of the programme is to raise public awareness about the importance of conserving SCCA. By providing information and engaging the public in various activities, the Group aims to instil a sense of responsibility and encourage the community to participate in conservation efforts actively.

An Environmental Education Programme (EEP) was organised for teachers and students from SK Lahad Datu 4, SK Unikodesa, and SM Cina in the Lahad Datu area. This programme aimed to educate and create awareness among the participants about environmental conservation. The open-day program saw an impressive attendance of more than 500 visitors, indicating a positive response from the community and the public.

206 YSG Annual Report 2022

SCCA organised a series of EEP from October to December 2022.

Over 7,000 students and teachers from the Lahad Datu district participated in the programme.

MOVING FORWARD

ADMINISTRATION AND FINANCE

• Strengthening SCCA’s human resource capacity and financing is crucial for the effective execution of SCCA’s management strategies and actions. Based on SCCA’s current workforce and operation conditions, the following measures are proposed:

• To recruit staff to support eco-tourism, EEP, research activity, and admin and finance work. Supporting staff such as rangers is insufficient to conduct intensive patrolling and maintenance activity and manage visitors, especially during peak season.

• SCCA staff needs more experience and skills to operate in protected areas. Hence there is a need to train existing and future staff in relevant fields such as EEP, nature guiding, lifeguarding skill, research (collecting and managing data), and other appropriate areas.

• To develop a sustainable financing strategy for SCCA.

HOSPITALITY AND RECREATION

• Developing SCCA tourism action plan for five years. Proper planning for developing eco-tourism activity in SCCA is required as tourism will be the source of income for SCCA. Eco-tourism activities in SCCA will be conducted without jeopardising its ecosystem and biodiversity value.

• Developing or improving current Visitors’ SOP (i.e. Reservation and Visitor Activities) in line with management, state and national policy. Several changes in the management structure and state and national policy have occurred in recent years. We are also forced to adapt to the new norm in our daily personal and working routines due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Therefore, the current SOP needs to be reviewed and revised accordingly.

• Developing eco-tourism packages for SCCA. It is one of the strategies to maximise SCCA’s income.

• Branding SCCA as the staging point for visitors to Darvel Bay. Darvel Bay has caught the interest of many people, mainly marine nature enthusiasts, with the discovery of Blue Ring Reefs. SCCA has become the ideal spot as a staging point as the reef is only 40 minutes away from SCCA. Darvel Bay also has many beautiful reefs suitable for diving and snorkelling activities.

CONSERVATION AND RESEARCH

• Formulating the 1st Strategic Management Plan for SCCA with funding from 12th Malaysia Plan,

• SCCA will increase community involvement in conservation/rehabilitation projects. The primary threat by SCCA is the frequent encroachment of boundaries by the community. Besides soliciting the Sabah Forestry Department to issue an eviction notice to the encroacher, Lahad Datu District Forestry Officer has devised a plan to involve the community in the rehabilitation project (planting and monitoring) in the SCCA boundary.

• Developing a three-year EEP plan for SCCA (to include coastal and marine EEP modules), as presently, no EEP activity is done in-situ.

• Creating collaboration with relevant bodies on coastal, marine and mangrove research programmes. Through the partnership, SCCA research programmes can be promoted, and staff members may benefit from knowledge and skill transfers.

MAINTENANCE AND DEVELOPMENT

• Renovating and maintaining existing infrastructures and facilities.

• Adding infrastructures such as Prayer Room (Surau), washroom at the main visitors stop (SCCA Jetty and Puncak), barbeque huts, boat garage, tented camp and water reservoir and dam, research facility (lab and mini herbarium). These infrastructures and facilities are essential to support visitors’ activities.

• Building a waste management centre to maintain cleanliness and incorporate green practices.

• Adding recreation and research equipment. At the moment, SCCA is unable to meet the demand by visitors for the usage of equipment, especially for water activity.

• Installing interpretation signboards. These signboards are vital for visitors’ guidance during hiking/trekking.

• Installing renewable energy (solar power) and following up with District Office on requesting electricity supply assistance. The power supply source in SCCA is genset and is only operated for a limited time.

INFAPRO

Where The Red Apes Roam Free

The principle behind planting trees is to accumulate carbon in their structural growth through photosynthesis when they extract CO2 from the atmosphere.

The Innoprise-Face Foundation Rainforest Rehabilitation Project (INFAPRO) is a collaboration between Rakyat Berjaya Sdn. Bhd., a wholly-owned company of the Group and Face the Future (Forests Absorbing Carbon Dioxide Emissions) Foundation of the Netherlands.

The project aims to rehabilitate 25,000 ha out of 29,501 ha of the severely degraded rainforest with indigenous dipterocarps through enrichment line planting, including fast-growing pioneers and forest fruit trees.

YSG Annual Report 2022

INFAPRO Rainforest Rehabilitation Project

The project area is located on the eastern side of the Yayasan Sabah Concession Area. It is situated within the Forest Management Unit, Ulu Segama, in the Lahad Datu district and borders the renowned Danum Valley Conservation Area (DVCA).

11,864.5ha (47.5%) of forests have been rehabilitated out of 25,000ha

The operational base of this area is located at INFAPRO KM 58, central to the development area, which is 11km from the Danum Valley Studies Centre (DVSC). Its strategic location near DVSC allows close collaboration with local and international scientists.

INFAPRO Rehabilitation Project (Contract 1 – Contract 9)

The area’s development is based on the severity of the degradation of forest sites caused by logging during the late 1970s, 1980s and early 1990s. The area previously contained mixed dipterocarp forests with a high richness of plant species and an extreme density and diversity of fauna compared to other parts of Sabah.

Under this collaboration, Face the Future funds all the project costs, from establishing nurseries, planting and tending trees, hiring and training staff, and vehicles to Research and Development in exchange for all carbon credits created by the project.

The total investment committed by Face the Future amounts to US$15 million. The project is expected to sequester at least 4.25 million tonnes of carbon (15.6 million tonnes of CO2) at an average cost of US$ 3.52 per ton of carbon (US$ 0.95 per ton of CO2).

The long-term nature of the project enables the maintenance and silvicultural treatments required to sustain growth rates during the project’s life. The planting phase will last 25 years, and the forests will be maintained for 99 years.

At the end of the first 60-year growth cycle, timber exploitation of these forests is anticipated, with timber belonging to the Group. However, timber harvesting will have to be done carefully. A healthy residual stand can again regenerate a well-stocked forest to maintain a carbon pool for Face the Future, which has the exclusive rights to the carbon sequestered through the ninety-nine years of the project.

Up to 2022, 11,864.5ha was wholly rehabilitated by dividing the area into nine contracts from 1992 until 2021. On 11 February 2021, the contract for CO2 offset is transferred from Face the Future to Face Forests B.V. Forest Forests has the intent to explore jointly with the Group the feasibility of monitoring and verifying the carbon sequestration impact of INFAPRO in 2020/2021 under the Verified Carbon Standard for the project over the period 2011-2020.

CONSERVATION

The enrichment planting in INFAPRO achieved with indigenous species, aims to rehabilitate the natural diversity of Sabah’s rainforests.

The main species chosen for the project were indigenous dipterocarps, mainly of the Shorea, Parashorea, Dipterocarpus, Vatica, Hopea and Dryobalanops genera. These species were selected due to their ability to be vegetatively propagated.

In addition to the dipterocarps, forest fruit trees are planted in the INFAPRO forest.

These species act as suitable pioneer species for the open and severely degraded areas and provide food for birds and other animal species in the forest.

It increased biodiversity and restored the natural composition of the forest’s structure.

INIKEA

The Innoprise-IKEA Tropical Forest Rehabilitation Project (INIKEA) started in June 1998 after a Memorandum of Agreement was signed between the Group, and the Sow-A-Seed Foundation, a foundation established by IKEA of Sweden to collaborate on a tropical forest rehabilitation project.

The Group and the Sow-A-Seed Foundation contributed to the project’s costs, while the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SUAS) provided research and technical assistance. The Group manages the project on a day-to-day basis.

SUAS is involved in two research projects: the SUAS project at Mile 41, Tambulanan Forest Reserve, Tawau and INIKEA at Sg. Tiagau Forest Reserve, Tawau. The research undertaken by SUAS includes an investigation of the feasibility of low impact log extraction system, forest dynamics and growth of the forest resulting from the low-impact log extraction system and the recovery of severely degraded forests by forest fires. Most of its current research activities are financed by IKEA of Sweden.

“ The project’s primary objective is to enhance biodiversity and assist the recovery process of degraded forests by enrichment planting and liberation treatments. Native tree species, especially dipterocarps, non-dipterocarps, and wild fruit trees, were planted to restore species lost in logging and fires in 1982 and 1983. ”

Where possible, diverse seed sources from as many mother trees and different sites are used, ensuring a sound genetic base. In areas where natural regeneration is abundant, no planting is done. Still, liberation treatments such as shade adjustment and climber cutting are performed to speed up the development of the natural regeneration of saplings.

The rehabilitation effort proves fruitful as families of the Bornean Orangutan and Bornean Gibbons, Borneo Pygmy Elephants and Hornbills are frequently sighted living in the restored forest.

The project also aims to be a role model in the large-scale forest rehabilitation endeavour regarding its efficiency, environmental sensitivity, and social contribution to the people working on the project. To help achieve this, compliance with local laws and regulations and IWAY (IKEA Way of responsibly sourcing products, services, materials and components) is the priority in every aspect of the project.

INIKEA’s high standards for workers and community rights and its working conditions have impressed independent external auditors from the Rainforest Alliance (United States) when evaluating the project performance under its Smartwood Programme.

INNOPRISE-IKEA Tropical Forest Rehabilitation Project

(at Sg. Tiagau Forest Reserve [formerly known as Kalabakan Forest Reserve, Tawau])

19,870ha

CLASS 1 (Protection) Forest Reserve

The initial project area of 14,300ha located west of the LFC in the Kalabakan Forest Reserve is predominantly high hills and mountains with more than 25° slopes notably in the north, northeastern and southern regions.

Although several rivers drain the project area, low-lying alluvial areas are limited and only found in central and northeastern regions. There are five varieties of soil association within the project area, including Brantian, Kalabakan, Mawing, Maliau and Tambulanan, of which 80 per cent is of the Maliau type.

A 500-600ha patch of the Tambalunan type appears on the southeastern corner of high hills and steep slopes. This is characterised by high hills and mountain cuestas whose soil units include orthic and gleyic, acrisols and dysticcambisols. The lower elevation and moderate

terrain are confined at the centre at the confluence of the tributaries of the upper Kalabakan River.

The additional area of 4,200ha is wedged between the Luasong Forestry Centre (LFC) and INIKEA project areas, forming a contiguous block. It essentially extension to the initial area on high and moderate elevation, mainly of the sandstone parent material. The area is characterised by broken hills and ridges with streams flowing to the Tiagau River, which eventually flows into the Kalabakan River in the south.

With the additional area, the total INIKEA project area is 18,500ha. The forest in the other area suffered similar degradation by wildfire and logging in the 1980s. Macaranga woods characterise the areas badly impacted by the fires.

Research Trials - Hybrid Planting Plot

The growth assessments at week 436 have been completed for the Hybrid Planting trial. This trial has been assessed every three months since its establishment in October 2012 (Blocks A and B) and April 2013 (Block C). The frequency of assessments was reduced to annually since 2018. This trial combined the line and gap-cluster plantings on the same unit area. Clusters of five seedlings (3 dipterocarps/non-dipterocarps and 2 wild fruits) were systematically planted at an interval of 5 m along the 2 m wide line openings. The distance between lines is the conventional 10-m adopted in the line-planting method. There were 32 different species planted in the three blocks. The hypothesis is that the seedlings within a cluster which are 0.5 m apart would assist each other to survive better in the harsh opencanopy growing conditions. The average survival by blocks at 8.4 years ranged between 29.9 per cent and 56.1 per cent. Disturbance by mammals, especially elephants, significantly contributes to the lower survival of certain wild fruit species.

Species and Genetic Diversity 2 and Genetic Common Garden 2

One of the main activities for the research team since January 2022 is establishing a new genetic trial for the dipterocarp progeny collection made during mast fruiting in 2019. The trials named Species and Genetic Diversity Experiment 2 and Genetic Common Garden 2 have been put on the ground in a 10ha experiment. The site preparation was completed at the end of March 2022. The planting activities, which started in early May, have been completed. The first measurement (after planting) was completed in the middle of June 2022.

Annual assessments have been completed for some research experiments, as listed in the following table. The compilation of data is in progress.

Field Census

The three-year census has been completed for Blocks 155, 159 and 164. The summary of the census is presented in the following table.

Note: *3-year-census (100% censused), #10-year-census (10% sampling)

Gap survival is % of the gap with at least one surviving seedling

Phenology Observation

The phenology observation started in April 2004 to monitor species’ flowering patterns around Luasong Forestry Centre. A team of two staff visited the phenology plots every two months except in off-season months, where the frequency was reduced to every three months. A pair of binoculars is used to observe changes in the trees’ canopy. There were initially 52 individual trees of 36 different species under observation. As six trees were dead, the total active samples now are 46 of 32 other species.

Observations were completed in February, March, May, June, September and December 2022.

The number of active trees seen during the observation months of 2022 is presented in the following table. There was no dipterocarp flowering recorded in 2022. A wild fruit species Limpaung (Beccaurea lanceolata), was found to produce fruit almost all year round.

A Safe Towards

& Healthy Working Environment

COMMITMENT TO OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY & HEALTH

We have long emphasised the importance of maintaining a safe and healthy working environment for our staff and the public. This commitment to safety and health has garnered significant acclaim through our wholly-owned subsidiary, Rakyat Berjaya Sdn. Bhd. which received the National Excellence Award in Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) under the Forestry Category from 2006 to 2016. Additionally, Sabah Softwoods Berhad, a subsidiary of the Group, has likewise been recognised for its OSH achievements, earning the same accolade for three consecutive years in 2017, 2018, and 2019.

COMMITTEE

To sustain the Group’s commitment to OSH, the Group instituted the committee responsible for overseeing its Forestry, Corporate Services, and Manufacturing sectors. The committee conducted a series of meetings to discuss OSH standards within the organisation, with the Forestry Sector convening on 6 August 2022 and the Corporate Services Sector on 28 March 2022, 23 June 2022, 13 September 2022, and 7 December 2022.

WORKPLACE INSPECTION

To foster a robust safety and health culture, the Group conducts regular inspections across its diverse divisions, units, zones, and subsidiaries. For instance, the Safety and Enforcement Unit undertook six workplace inspections in 2022, conducting four OSH audits and two audit monitoring exercises. These audits led to identifying ten NonConformity Reports (NCRs) and 27 Opportunities for Improvement (OFIs), each outlining the underlying issues, their causes, and the preventive measures to be taken in the future

The COVID-19 pandemic is physically and emotionally challenging for many people while changing day-to-day life situations in unprecedented ways. All sections of society, including staff and Management of the Group, play their role in protecting themselves and each other while preventing the spread of the disease. Through the Enrichment and Monitoring Unit, the Management encourages staff to vaccinate with the COVID-19 vaccine while implementing multiple layers of control, such as face mask-wearing and other COVID-19 SOPs prevention protocols. Along with vaccination, the Enrichment and Monitoring Unit also provides staff with specific guidance for preventing the spread of COVID-19 in the workplace.

The Management has also established the COVID-19 Action Committee, whose role is to manage and coordinate COVID-19 related cases among the staff of the Group, with the Enrichment and Monitoring Unit as the Secretariat of the Committee. The Secretariat also monitors compliance adherence to the COVID-19 SOPs of the various activities and programmes conducted by the Group, such as courses and events.

Our unwavering commitment to corporate excellence is a testament to our meticulous planning and focused efforts. Our vision of attaining excellence is not just a mere aspiration but an achievable goal, provided we relentlessly pursue our obligation to improve people’s socioeconomic status. Our pathway to outstanding achievement is deeply rooted in the Sabah Maju Jaya (SMJ) 2021-2025 Development Plan.

The Management believes that staff must continuously innovate and adapt to remain competitive. We are dedicated to ensuring that our PEOPLE remain up-to-date on industry trends and practices. Additionally, the Management is concerned with succession planning, actively identifying successors for critical positions in the organisation, and enhancing an individual’s effectiveness in leadership roles and processes.

By fostering a culture of integrity and providing administrative and financial management support services, we are working towards enhancing the effectiveness of our delivery system in maintaining our reputation for excellence and integrity.

402 YSG Annual Report 2022

As our programmes continue to grow in scope and complexity, the need for ever-increasing funding to manage the integration of social programmes has become critical. Our commitment to building a sustainable, growth-driven, and education-centred society remains a top priority. As the present and future challenges loom, we are taking decisive action to ensure that we can continue to deliver on our mission of improving people’s lives through our social programmes.

Our vision for sustainable economic growth is centred on forging strategic partnerships and leveraging our resources to create valuable commercial opportunities. Our commitment to sustainable economic growth ensures that we will continue to create value for our stakeholders and drive economic prosperity in Sabah for years.

Our commitment to conservation extends beyond just protecting wildlife and their habitats. We recognise that scientific research is an essential component of conservation efforts and, as such, is dedicated to facilitating research in the protected areas under our purview.

We faced numerous challenges in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic that adversely impacted our financial position. Hence, we will continue to focus on generating revenue through our plantation, tourism, oil and gas, and energy sectors. This strategic initiative will enhance our ability to meet our overall commitments. The Management will continue to monitor all subsidiaries to maximise dividend distribution to the Group.

We are committed to being a beacon of hope and remain dedicated to improving the lives of the people we serve and constantly moving forward to be the best among the best.
