BANANA & Partners’ CEO Receives ‘Local Hero’ Award at Indonesia CSR Award 2023

Jakarta [December 2023] – Herry Wijaya, CEO of BANANA & Partners, has been honored with the ‘Local Hero’ award at the prestigious Indonesia CSR Award (ICA) 2023, organized by the Corporate Forum for CSR Development (CFCD). The award was presented by Thendri Supriatno, Chairman of CFCD, recognizing Herry’s effective collaboration with CSR Pertamina Patra Niaga Kalimantan.

This ‘Local Hero’ award highlights Herry Wijaya’s significant role in promoting sustainable practices, particularly in the Kalimantan region. This achievement has further motivated the CEO and the team at BANANA & Partners to continue innovating and contributing significantly to the world of sustainability. “This award is a catalyst for us to keep growing and do even more in 2024,” said Herry.

“I am deeply grateful for the remarkable collaboration we have had with Pertamina Patra Niaga. This partnership has been instrumental in our journey towards sustainable development and has significantly contributed to our success. The synergy between our teams has not only enhanced our capabilities but also allowed us to make meaningful strides in our commitment to environmental stewardship and social responsibility. I extend my heartfelt thanks to everyone at Pertamina Patra Niaga for their unwavering support, shared vision, and dedication to making a positive impact on our community and the environment.” said herry

At the ICA 2023 event, four main award categories were presented. Besides the ‘Local Hero’ category, other awards included ‘Best Local Hero 1’ in circular economy, ‘Best Local Hero 1’ in women’s empowerment, and two awards in the development of Community Development Officer (leadership).

The award ceremony attracted participation from 32 companies and 9 individual participants in the ICA category, while in the ISDA category, there were 101 companies and 14 individual participants. In total, there were 72 ICA programs including individuals and 172 ISDA programs.

The assessment standard for these awards is based on SNI ISO 26000:2013, a guideline for social responsibility that serves as an important reference in organizational operations. This international standard not only helps organizations to comply with legal requirements but also encourages a broader contribution to sustainable development, going beyond legal compliance.

This year’s ICA theme, “One World One Responsibility Toward Sustainable Business Leadership (ESG & CSV) in Excellence,” is highly relevant to global CSR and sustainability trends, especially in terms of ESG (Environmental Social Governance) and CSV (Creating Shared Values) leadership. This theme reflects CFCD’s commitment to positively contribute to promoting sustainable and responsible business practices.

This award is not only a recognition of Herry Wijaya and BANANA & Partners’ efforts in implementing sustainability principles but also serves as an inspiration for other companies to take similar steps in advancing environmental and social sustainability in Indonesia.
