Garuda Indonesia has made contributions to the effort of sustainable development through its participation as the member and one of the founders of IBCSD, together with several reputable companies in Indonesia such as Bakrie Telecom, Bank Negara Indonesia, Medco Power Indonesia, Holcim Indonesia and PT. Riau Andalan Paper, which was founded on April 27, 2011.
IBCSD was founded in response to the fact that business would not be sustainable without the support of people in terms of both social and economic conditions. This principle is also known as Sustainable Development. The existence of the IBCSD is expected to promote the principle in Indonesian business atmospheres through economic growth, ecological balance and simultaneous social progress.
It is pertinent to the environmental issues which require immediate attention and improvement in all business sectors for the sustainability of earth and the next generation. This principle has led to Indonesia Vision 2050.
Indonesia Vision 2050 develops the business view on Indonesian sustainable civilization toward 2050 and its challenges and the follow-ups which need to be taken in order to meet this vision. The members of IBCSD, in cooperation with the Indonesian Chamber of Commerce (KADIN) has started this project believing that Business as Usual (BaU) is no longer an option when it comes to climate change which is happening sooner than was previously expected, the depletion of condition of the ecosystem, the weakness of energy and food security, and the financial crisis caused by short-term thinking and poor structuring.
That is why IBCSD will create a work outline consisting of a business role in the community, where the company serves as the leader of change in terms of the required policy, institution and practices to create a sustainable Indonesia in 2050. The work outline of Indonesia Vision 2050 is as follows:
Considering there are so many business sectors in Indonesia, the work outline is based on 10 sections, i.e. Human Development, Economy, Marine, Agriculture, Forest, Energy and Power, Tourism & Cultural Diversity, Infrastructure, Transport and Connectivity, and Resource Efficiency.
