FGV’s Natural Commitment
Making Positive Impacts Through Conservation Efforts 

As one of Malaysia’s largest food and agribusiness companies, FGV Holdings Berhad (FGV) is involved in the A to Z of the agricommodity supply chain from upstream to midstream to downstream. This includes owning and operating one of the largest acreage of oil palm plantations in the world, stretching up to approximately 440 thousand hectares, mostly in Malaysia and Indonesia.

KDEB Waste Management –
Smart Solution Against The Illegal Dumping Blight

Selangor’s allure of abundant job prospects has attracted a significant influx of migration to the State, making it a bustling hub of growth and progress. However, with great prosperity comes great responsibility, and Selangor faces a pressing issue –illegally disposed waste. As the most populous State, it is no surprise that Selangor also generates the highest volume of waste in the entire country at approximately 7,000 tons on a daily basis. This is exacerbated by the blight that is illegal dumping which poses significant challenges to Selangor’s infrastructure, resources and most crucially, the health of its citizens.


The Death Of Free Speech And The Dangerous Rise Of The Illiberal Left

245 years ago the famed French philosopher Voltaire is reputed to have said, “I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.” These words inspired both the American and French Revolutions and spurred the development of Western liberalism which is grounded on – among other things – freedom of speech, freedom of religion or belief, freedom of the press and secularism.


The Cannabis Conundrum – Legalising Medical Marijuana

To legalise or not to legalise, that is the question! The debate on whether Malaysia should legalise marijuana has been around, and escalated especially since last year.

Cannabis sativa and Cannabis indica are two species of cannabis and was traditionally used by the Malays, Indians, Chinese, and the other races in Malaysia for hundreds if not thousands of years. Cannabis was also used openly until about 1985 when former Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir waged a war on drugs (following President Nixon in the US). This made things worse as users are now recognised as “criminals” that deserve to be “hanged to death.”
