The mangrove planting program is part of UOBAMI’s initiative to contribute towards creating a sustainable environment. The firm is committed to transforming the investing industry by adopting ecological practices and addressing environmental concerns.
Ari Adil, CEO of UOBAMI said “The mangrove plantation was conducted at Mangrove Ecotourism Center PIK and involved the team for its ecological significance in protecting coastal regions from natural disasters such as tsunamis and typhoons. We realised that the survival of the mangrove ecosystem in this area
was essential for the overall health of the ecosystem and the region’s human population too”.
