Given the nature of our business and products, we have made it a primary focus to support environmental and animal conservation. This commitment has allowed us to closely collaborate with several environmental NGOs and advocates such as the Tropical Rainforest Conservation and Research Centre (TRCRC), Global Environment Centre (GEC), WWF-Malaysia and Malaysia Nature Society (MNS). Our sustainability initiatives serve to encourage the public to increase conservation efforts within their own communities.

BOH 90th Birthday Fun Run
In conjunction with our 90th Birthday Fun Run, all the registration fees from the 5km fun run were channelled to TRCRC. The total sum of RM38,000 will be used to grow and develop conservation initiatives in Cameron Highlands to support long-term forest preservation, restoration and biodiversity.

BOH And TRCRC Join Hands To Cameron Highland’s Forests
Both parties will be working together on long-term forest restoration and preservation efforts. Part of the collaboration will cover forest restoration at TRCRC’s Tropical Living Collection (TRLC) Banun in Perak where BOH will sponsor 200 trees to be planted there to support ongoing conservation programmes to restore key forest corridors within the Central Forest Spine.
BOH And Global Environment Centre (GEC)
In 2018, the continuous efforts by BOH and GEC to rehabilitate the Kuala Langat North Forest Reserve (KLNFR) saw more than 200 volunteers from the local community band together to plant 1 hectare of Tenggek Burung (Melicope lunu-ankenda), the pioneer species of trees in KLNFR in a plot of land previously razed by forest fires. The volunteers also learnt about the importance of the KLNFR’s delicate peatland forest ecosystem and its link to issues such as climate change.
BOH Eco Trail
The BOH Eco Trail was held in 2016 at its lowland estate in Banting, in support of GEC. The conservation programme intended to create awareness on the importance of peatland conservation for the survival of our ecosystem. All proceeds were used to fund educational activities under the Kuala Langat North Forest Reserve.
BOH And Malaysian Nature Society (MNS)
BOH Highlands Run
BOH also provides facility support for a Study Centre run by the MNS on the BOH Estate. The centre aims to promote conservation efforts to the public through environmental education.

Habitat Restoration Project (Habitat)
Orangutan Conservation Project
We developed a limited edition package of our famous household brand—BOH Tea, that served as a premium giveaway for those who wished to participate in the project which sought to protect and highlight the plight of the orangutan to the public.
Tea For Trees
ea for Trees, a public programme from 2008 to 2010 to actively encourage the public to participate in conservation efforts through a simple act of symbolically adopting a tree for a small fee. Guests got to exchange this fee for BOH tea products and merchandise all while helping to support restoration efforts in Kinabatangan, Sabah. All funds were channeled to WWF-Malaysia for the Habitat Reforestation Project on orangutan conservation.
The New Hope For Orangutan School Programme
An educational youth programme on conservation developed to engage with the torch bearers of tomorrow. BOH sought to empower youths with profound knowledge on issues grappling the orangutan, while nurturing a sense of responsibility in them to save this iconic species from disappearing from our earth entirely.
BOH Forest Friends School Programme
BOH and WWF-Malaysia launched the BOH Forest Friends School Programme to continue efforts to educate youth on the importance of environmental conservation. The programme sought to educate students on the importance of our forests and the issues of deforestation in Malaysia. The programme also had a competition component that encouraged students to produce a short educational video centred on the functions of trees in the ecosystem, or the economic, social and cultural benefits of forests. The programme was supported by the Ministry of Education and the Department of Environment.
