Basic Foundation For Corporate Social Responsibility
Sustainable development was initiated in a number of countries and came from the desire of many people to find a balance between the business, the shareholders and the stakeholders. Each had differing interests, which could lead to unrest and social instability and impact all parties badly.
Business entities, together with the regulators who as the driving force played a major role in finding this balance, were encouraged to take a leading position in making changes. Sustainable development became the business entities’ framework for thinking and acting, and creates a balance between the profit-based business, the minority shareholders interests, and the relationships with stakeholders.
As a business entity that has a vision “To be one of the leading investment companies in the Asia Pacific region through solid financial management, innovation, and competent human resources”, the Company has a moral obligation to realize this balance. As a healthy business with a bright future, with organizational governance based on compliance and accountability, Human Resources (HR) Competency Development, and the fulfillment of their rights, the Company’s growth linked to the people of Indonesia, will together strengthen the Company’s position to achieve its vision.
The balance as stated in Company’s vision can be achieved through the Company’s commitment to 4 (four) Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) aspects:
In conducting its CSR programs, the Company complies with 2007 Law No. 40, article 74, as reaffirmed in the 2012 Government Regulation No. 47 regarding Limited Company Social and Environmental Responsibility. MNC Group integrates its CSR activities with all its business units to produce the maximum effect, so both the community and the company itself can feel the results.

The Company has promoted environmental awareness, as a part of the Go Green movement, through a number of its activities.

In addition, Go Green activities have a business value that benefits companies, including: operating cost reductions as a result of efficient use of energy, resources (fuel) and office supplies (electricity, water, paper, printer ink); optimized space utilization; and more efficient transportation.
The Company shows its concern for the environment through a number of its daily activities. The Company runs regular environmental campaigns at the MNC Group’s offices, including encouraging all employees to make efficient use of electricity, to unplug power connectors when leaving the office, and to reduce water consumption.

This system is used in MNC Group’s office buildings, and has reduced the consumption of both tap and ground water.
The Company realizes that paper production requires large quantities of chemicals, water and energy, as well as wood fiber, which is the main raw material used in its production. The paper production process generates a large amount of waste. Hence, the use of paper has short and long term effects on the environment, contributing to global warming and environmental damage. The Company has implemented paper saving initiatives over the past few years by printing internal memos on the blank sides of non-confidential documents.

MNC Investama as a business entity, believes that corporate social responsibility (CSR) should be considered, addressed and fulfilled as an inherent responsibility in daily life and activities, by the Company as an institution and management and employees as individuals. The Company believes that CSR fulfillment is a business strategy in the context of business sustainability. Similar to other multinational companies, CSR has become an integral part of the Company’s policies. Implementing social responsibility is a form of obligations fulfillment to all stakeholders as a social investment that will provide reciprocal sustainable benefits in the long term.
MNC Investama strives to spread inspiration through its CSR programs. Fulfillment of corporate social responsibility, is not enough if only done by sheer relief. There should be strong commitment to make it sustainable and purposeful activities.
CSR is important for the Company, both as institution and individual employees. In beneficial perspective, CSR program to employees is how to foster a sense of caring and sensitive to social situations experienced by the surrounding environment. Hence, employees will be more thoughtful and vigorously work as a form of gratitude for various available facilities and happiness. Meanwhile, CSR in institutional perspective is beneficial to the Company’s awareness as an integral part of all stakeholders. Therefore, all policies taken by the Company will strive to provide benefits not only to business partners and investors, but also to all people who are not directly linked to the Company’s business activities.
On November 22, 2013, the Company engaged in a CSR activity as a form of social commitment to the society, which in this particular instance is focused on the area of education and especially for elementary School students. In this CSR program, the Company’s employees are encouraged to donate secon hand books in good condition (1 book minimum per employee), and also to renovate an unused room in Mekar Sari elementary School, Pulo Mas, into a school library.
The objectives of the program are:
To assist deserving schools or other educational institutions to develop and manage a library facility in order to promote the habit of reading and to improve knowledge among students and teachers. To provide school libarary facilities for the benefit of students, which can also be used for activities that foster student creativity such as handicraft, book resume, and talent competition. The program ended up collecting more than twice the original target of 1001 books consisting of education books, exam simulation books, literary books, and books on culture and general knowledge for students in the first grade through the sixth grade.
Conducting CSR activities is important both from an institutional viewpoint and at the level of the individual employees as it fosters a sense of social responsibility in the day to-day life of the Bhakti Investama Group. Our efforts to implement this include raising employees’ awareness of various issues relating to the economy, social issues, culture and environment, with due consideration to human rights.
In 2012, the Company’s CSR activities were concentrated on environmental issues, such as the planting of mangrove trees on Pramuka Island and Tidung Island, both in the Thousand Islands, in July 2012. Meanwhile, the media-based subsidiaries also ran their own CSR activities, which covered sport, health, education, religious activities and assistance for natural disaster victims, among others.
The Company realizes that the implementation of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) should not merely be a voluntary activity; rather, it should also be part of joint commitment to build sustainable development and create a conducive investment climate that will support an improvement in the welfare of society. This commitment is also stated in the provisions of Law No. 40 year 2007 regarding Limited Liability Companies that govern the obligation of a company to meet its social and environmental responsibilities.
The Company’s CSR activities are aimed at raising social awareness and increasing participation among the employees of the Company and of the subsidiaries to motivate them to understand and take real action to help tackle social issues.
CSR activities were carried out partly through the Bhakti Investama Peduli program. One of the activities in 2011 was a visit to the Putra Setia Orphanage in Kramat Sentiong District. This activity involved active participation and interaction between the employees and the orphans.
