Planting 15,000 Mangrove Trees is Enesis Group’s Commitment to Protecting the Environment and Social Affairs

As an Indonesian FMCG company that produces health products consisting of household & personal care categories, as well as ready-to-drink and food supplement products, Enesis Group is committed to increasing awareness and responsibility for environmental and social interests.

Enesis Group’s form of responsibility towards the environment is by participating in the “Net-Zero Carbon” Program which is a Mangrove Ecosystem Conservation program initiated by the Food and Drug Monitoring Agency (BPOM). This program was carried out at the Angke Kapuk Nature Tourism Park, North Jakarta, on Tuesday (31/10) starting with the signing of a multi-party MoU and the planting of the first 100 mangrove trees.

This program was attended by the Head of BPOM, Penny Lukito and representatives of the Enesis Group, Bambang Cahyono as Chief of Human Resources, Legal, Public Relations and Regulatory Affairs Officer, also attended by the Head of Regulatory Affairs, Budi Satriyo and Head of Public Relations, RM Ardiantara.

The Net-Zero Carbon program will continue for the next three years and during that time the Enesis Group will support the planting of 15,000 mangrove trees. “By planting mangrove trees in stages over the past 3 years, we hope that Enesis Group can make a positive contribution to environmental preservation. We as an industry apply the ESG concept to create a sustainable business, so that it not only provides economic benefits, but also has positive social and environmental benefits. “One of them is by supporting the Net-Zero Carbon activity program,” explained Ardiantara.

“This is in line with the Enesis Group’s vision and mission, not only creating health products for Indonesian families but also actively participating and collaborating in activities that have a good impact on the environment. “This activity is also expected to contribute to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs),” added Ardiantara.

The Mangrove Ecosystem Conservation Program aims to meet six SDGS targets including climate change mitigation, because mangroves are one of the carbon-rich ecosystems on earth and contribute to sustainable forest management. This activity will be recorded at the Indonesian Record Museum (MURI) as the first Net Zero Carbon Emission program through mangrove planting with drug and food company collaborators.

This mangrove tree planting cooperation program is supervised by the POM Agency and participated by several parties from the Drug Business Actors; Traditional medicine, Cosmetics, Health Supplements; Food and POM Agency Stakeholders.
