AVOID. REDUCE. OFFSET.
100% Carbon Neutral
As of 2019
Our journey to become carbon neutral started during our strategic planning process in February 2018. The impetus for this initiative was our desire, as an ethical, contemporary market leader, to expand the scope of our CSR activities to address sustainability. Indonesia faces critical climate change challenges. As of October 2019, we have become 100% carbon neutral. We became certified following a rigid process required by advisors who are among the global leaders in environmental advisory and certification.

Helps to protect 65.000 ha
of Rimba Raya Project in Indonesia
Based on the Indonesian island of Borneo, known regionally as Kalimantan, the Rimba Raya Body copy untuk Rimba Raya ---> Biodiversity Reserve is home to carbon-dense tropical peat swamps that house 105,000 endangered Bornean orangutans and other threatened species.
By directing offset funds to the island, PT Mowilex is helping to save 65,000 hectares of forest once slated to become oil palm plantations. The preservation work also enhances health care, food security, fire safety and educational opportunities for 2,500 households on the island.
80% Plastic Reduction
Within 8 Years
We are pledging to reduce our new plastics consumed in our packaging by 80% measured in tonnage, by 2027. We want to change consumer and shop-owner mindsets about plastics being the ideal packaging material. And, we hope to see consumer indifference, if not preference for packaging with recycled content which will have color imperfections. To succeed we will need the help of others in the industry, including logistics companies, as well as policy support for recycling. In our own consumption, we have already converted nearly all our offices and factory to use filtration to avoid plastic water bottles.
Protecting 1500 KM²
of Ocean In Sumbawa, for 5 Years
As a large archipelago, Indonesia is largely reliant on its coastal waters for its food sources, and for its tourism industry. With the help of our shareholders, we have financially committed to a five-year effort by Conservation International (CI) to protect a sensitive marine area in Sumbawa that is home to the endangered whale shark. With our help, CI will continue to work with local governments and communities to maintain and protect Saleh Bay, and to develop environmentally sustainable tourism in the area.
