Scholarships, teachers’ honorarium, building schools and supplying laboratory equipment are all part of our contribution towards lifting the standard of Indonesian education.
We help improve the income of the communities that live around our estates through partnership programs such as inti-plasma, agronomy training, seeds assistance program, supporting fish and livestock husbandry.
We provide direct health services to local communities through our hospital and clinics. We also assist with clean water, malaria prevention, blood donation and other community health programs such as education about the dangers of HIV.
Religious and Spiritual Development
We assist with the building of house of worships and community based religious programs such as free circumcision program for young boys from poor families
Our care of the environment is reflected by the strict standards that we apply in our operations. There are proper policies in place for the disposal of liquid waste from our mills which is normally recycled back as fertilizer. We also apply a zero burning policy during replanting. A number of our estates have their own small conservation forests. We participate in greening efforts as such tree plantings.
We actively help develop the infrastructure around the location of our operation, for example village roads, bridges and access road to schools.
Relief Work During Natural Disasters
Indonesia’s location in the ring of fire makes it prone to natural disasters. Our CSR team is always ready to participate in relief work whenever there is a need. So far we have helped in major disasters such as the Aceh Tsunami, Bengkulu and Jogyakarta earthquakes and the Jakarta flooding.
