LAND TENURE RIGHTS
TDM respects tenure rights, and recognises its duty and responsibilities associated with tenure rights, such as respect for the long- protection and sustainable use of land, forests and fisheries. This is done in cognisance of the national obligations, constitutions, local laws and regulations of the country where TDM is operating in.
Following this matter, TDM respects the individual rights of indigenous and local communities to give or withhold their free, prior and informed consent (FPIC) to the development of land to which they hold legal, communal or customary rights. The Group commits to ensuring legal compliance as well as international best practices in FPIC are implemented, in accordance with the full scope of this Policy, prior to commencing any new operations. In 2018, TDM reported zero incidents involving violations of rights of Indigenous People living in Malaysia.
