– #BackOurOceans with American Express, join us to combat marine plastic pollution –

One of the most significant ways we can back our communities, is to do our part to protect and sustain the environment on which life depends. As part of our brand promise to back our customers, colleagues, communities, and what they care about most, American Express Malaysia is committed to raising awareness on the issue of marine plastic pollution and doing our part to care for the oceans and coastal communities that we all share.

Our mission has taken us to various parts of the country, east and west coast alike. At every location, we endeavor to leave an impact through a cleaner beach and a cleaner reef, saving endangered species while preserving the current ecosystem for future marine life. We have also embarked on mangrove restoration projects in Kuala Selangor and Melaka as they play crucial roles in the protection of coastal areas.

We actively engage our employees and work with NGOs alike to clean coral reefs in Tioman and restore such reefs through building artificial reef blocks and placing them in the ocean’s bed at islands near Perhentian. We have also undertaken initiatives in Cherating, cleaning up beaches that are home to turtle nesting and supporting turtle conservation.

To-date, we have committed over 4,500 volunteer hours for our CSR initiatives, collected 4,393 kilograms of trash (inclusive of plastic, metal scraps etc.), planted more than 650 mangrove trees, released close to 400 turtle hatchlings and built an artificial reef that will continue to grow. Through our company’s commitments to reduce plastic use globally and introduce the first card made from recovered plastic in partnership with Parley, our colleagues around the world, including Malaysia, are helping to make a meaningful difference in the health of our oceans together with local non-profits. With your support – and the powerful backing of American Express and our partners – we can #BackOurOceans and help reduce marine plastic pollution.
