PT Mowilex Indonesia was recently granted a gold medal for the 12th Annual Global CSR Best Environmental Excellence Award, Asia’s most prestigious grant held since 2009 for Corporate Social Responsibility. The high-profile event, held virtually due to the Covid-19 pandemic, assesses companies from many countries and regions in Asia, such as Singapore, Malaysia, India, Taiwan, Cambodia, and the Middle East.

The grant from Global CSR is an award for Mowilex’s long journey in preserving the environment. As the first paint manufacturing company in Indonesia that is certified Carbon Neutral, Mowilex participated in environmental preservation by reducing more than 12,000 plastic water jugs and bottled water since the initiative started in October 2019. The company also delivers sustainability in its operations by taking the initiative to reduce electricity use. Therefore, Mowilex is replacing freon in air conditioners and office and factory lights with LED technology.    

President Director of Mowilex, Niko Safavi, stated that the Global CSR Best Environmental Excellence Award strengthens the company’s commitment to continue implementing its sustainability program, namely “Kurangi, Hindari, Imbangi (Reduce, Avoid, Offset)”.

“We always encourage our CSR programs to remain in line with sustainability and environmental initiatives.”

In 2019, Mowilex also stopped producing certain colors of lead-containing wood and metal paint two years before the deadline recommended by the United Nations alliance. Mowilex also invested time and resources to launch a lead-free formulation for Wood and Iron Paints. These steps prove its commitment to contribute to the environment. The company is aware that long-term investment correlates to the sustainability of the planet we live in and its services to the local communities. It focuses on searching for eco-friendly solutions and reducing carbon footprints.

The company is also involved in protecting whale sharks and their 1,500-kilometer habitat in Saleh Bay, Sumbawa, West Nusa Tenggara. Mowilex also collaborates with the Indonesian Ministry of Environment and Forestry to plant 50,000 new trees, including 5,500 mangrove plants that protect coastlines and capture carbon in Bali, and 500 Tabebuya (Handroanthus chrysotrichus) in Purwakarta, West Java.
