Request For Proposal: One Million Trees Programme

Project Overview

Yayasan PETRONAS (YP) is continuing our tree planting programme with One Million Trees (OMT) across Malaysia to support eco-system restoration and community development efforts. We are looking for experienced, capable and credible Implementing Partner(s) to plan, conduct, manage, monitor and maintain the programme for a duration of 5 years. Interested applicants are encouraged to fill in the application form. Successful applicants will be issued a Request for Proposal (RFP) where further details will be provided. 

YP’s OMT Programme emphasises survival rates, eco-system benefit, and benefits to local communities through the tree planting, maintenance and educational activities as part of the overall programme. We are keen to explore tree planting in various sites, from degraded forest reserves to open spaces in schools and urban areas, as long as it can be preserved from any other development, and bring benefit to people and nature.

Since 2020, YP has conducted tree planting activities in support of PETRONAS Walk4Trees programme. The programme surpassed its target of 50,000 trees to 74,652 trees that were planted in 14 sites across the country, bringing socio-economic benefit back to 255 members of local communities who participated in ensuring more than 70% survival rate of the planted trees through nursery set up, tree planting and maintenance, as well as other skills building and knowledge exchange activities within the programme.

We would like to invite more partners to be part of our tree planting effort so that we may plant more trees in more locations that would benefit more people and the environment, together.
