Holcim Indonesia’s plant in Cilacap, Central Java, has been awarded the top rating for environmental excellence by the Environment Ministry.
The company has made it onto the list of “gold” companies, the highest rating for companies judged by the ministry.
Known as the Corporate Environmental Performance Ratings, or Proper, the list is the result of an assessment conducted annually since 2002 by the Environment Ministry to encourage regulatory compliance and punish the worst offenders. The ratings are color based, with gold being awarded to companies that show the highest compliance with environmental regulations and demonstrate a proactive sense of responsibility toward their surrounding communities. Companies that make an effort to fulfill the ministry’s “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Recover” slogan earn a green rating, while blue is given to firms deemed moderately environmentally friendly.
