In efforts to create a culture that cares about the environment, a crypto trading platform Indodax, has just formed a partnership with Jangjo, a modern waste management start-up company, for its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program.
Indodax CEO Oscar Darmawan, said that Indodax will strive to apply the principles of Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG), especially for the environmental purposes, where this issue is currently being discussed.
“The issue of Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) is an important topic that is often discussed. Therefore, Indodax held a CSR program that focuses on environmental issues. The agenda for this program is the transportation of sorted waste from the Indodax office, that Jangjo can take for the recycling process.” Oscar said.
CEO and co-founder of Jangjo, Joe Hansen, said that this collaboration was built because of the issue of national waste. Based on data compiled from the Ministry of Environment and Forestry (KLHK), the total national waste in 2021 will reach 68.5 million tons, of which 17 percent (11.6 million tons) is a type of plastic waste.
“With suboptimal management and unsegregateted waste causes waste to accumulate in the Final Disposal Site (TPA). In Jabodetabek itself, I see the Bantargebang TPA will exceed its capacity in the near future. We need to move together to solve this problem, it’s as simple as starting to sort it out. Sorting can be a solution to reduce waste sent to landfill, to increase the amount of waste that is recycled,” said Joe Hansen.
Seeing this conditions, Indodax was decided to cooperate with Jangjo and carry out a CSR program for an environmental purpose, especially in waste management.
“We, Indodax, believe that the company is not just pursuing profit. A good company is a company that also cares about the environment and cares about the social environment around it. I think it’s very important for us to start real action, to make the environment even better. We at Indodax believe that every small step we start can have a big impact on our environment,” concluded Oscar Darmawan.
