Indofood actively engages with government, local communities and non-governmental organizations (“NGOs”) to protect the environment through solid waste management and nature conservation. We support the government’s post-consumer packaging waste management efforts through the Indofood Waste Bank and Green Warmindo programs. We also work with global and national companies to support nature conservation through platforms like the Mangrove Ecosystem Restoration Alliance (“MERA ”) and Gerakan Ciliwung Bersih (“GCB”).
Protecting the Environment
Indofood Waste BankThe Indofood Waste Bank program was established to raise consumer awareness on the proper disposal of post-consumer packaging waste. This is achieved through environmental education programs targeted at local households and communities, with a view towards improving the quality of post-consumer packaging waste material collected for recycling. During 2019, we continued to build new waste banks, educate local communities on the importance of waste segregation and improve the quantity and quality of post-consumer packaging waste that can be recycled as raw materials for other industries.
MERAMERA is a collaborative effort between global and national companies, government agencies and NGOs to restore and protect the mangrove ecosystems in three areas: (1) Muara Angke, Kapuk, North Jakarta, (2) Muara Gembong, Bekasi, West Java and (3) Muara Cisadane, Banten.
Tree PlantingWe are collaborating with local communities across Indonesia through tree-planting programs. These efforts support the rehabilitation of mangrove ecosystems, preserve the ecosystems along the coastlines of Jakarta, Kalimantan and North Sumatra, and revitalize the landscape and natural springs in West Java and East Java.
