Two APP Sinar Mas business units, PT Pindo Deli Pulp & Paper Mills Karawang and PT Pabrik Kertas Tjiwi Kimia Tbk, succeeded in obtaining an award from Habitat for Humanity (HfH) Indonesia for the company's commitment and support in providing clean water and sanitation facilities for the surrounding community.
PT Pindo Deli Pulp & Paper Mills Karawang won an award through the WASH program (Water Sanitation, and Hygiene), which is a program to provide access to clean water and sanitation in 3 Elementary Schools in Wanakerta Karawang Village. The program, which started in August 2020, was based on the inadequate condition of MCK facilities, as well as a lack of knowledge related to a clean and healthy lifestyle, thus making students less concerned about personal and environmental hygiene.
Meanwhile, the award received by PT Paper Factory Tjiwi Kimia Tbk was encouraged by the support program for access to clean water, sanitation, as well as increasing knowledge and awareness regarding clean and healthy lifestyles for the community and stakeholders in Tado Hamlet, Singkalan Village through a participatory approach for 12 months.
