IUCN Red List Species Conservation

Why It Matters

Gamuda is fully committed to identify where our operations will pose a threat to endangered plants and animals, and take appropriate steps to safeguard those species from further harm. Our commitment is underscored by an understanding that when a species becomes endangered, it is a sign that the ecosystem is slowly falling apart. Each species that is lost will then trigger a domino effect and lead to further loss of other species within its ecosystem.

Gamuda realises that monitoring and protecting endangered species is a material sustainability issue to us after the occurrence of human-wildlife conflict and coexistence at our construction sites and within our completed developments. For instance, there were concerns among residents at Jade Hills when they encountered wildlife such as bats in the neighbourhood. Since bats play an important role as pollinators, the proposed solution to kill the bats was dismissed, but we had taken pains to keep fruit trees that attract bats further away from the residential units in future developments to maintain a harmonious co-living environment while encouraging pollination.

We are committed to upholding our IUCN Red List Species Conservation pledge by identifying where our operations will threaten endangered plants and animals, and take appropriate steps to safeguard those species from further harm.

IUCN Red List Species Conservation

We recorded 26 flora and 36 fauna species with conservation importance from biodiversity audits, respectively, within the vicinities of Jade Hills, Gamuda Gardens, Gamuda Cove, and Paya Indah Discovery Wetlands, Celadon City and Valencia.

Our aim is to preserve at least five per cent of these valuable tree species and houses various fauna in all of our new developments, subject to site feasibility.
