PCG expands its plastic waste management initiative Be Green to Indonesia

KUALA LUMPUR: Petronas Chemicals Group Bhd (PCG) expands Be Green, its flagship social impact programme, internationally for the first time starting with Indonesia to purposefully deliver greater value in countries where it is present.

This expansion serves to drive awareness on proper use and handling of plastics through the education of local communities on the importance of responsible waste management and the practice of 3R (Reduce, Reuse and Recycle), which is in line with PCG’s New Plastics Economy (NPE) agenda and social impact strategy, while contributing to the global transition towards circular economy.

"Plastic waste management is a global challenge that requires the commitment of all its citizens, starting with education. Through Be Green, we look to equip more people with knowledge on plastics and responsible waste management, in line with PCG’s NPE agenda,” PCG managing director and chief executive officer Mohd Yusri Mohamed Yusof said in a statement.

As part of the Be Green initiative in Indonesia, PCG held a fruitful and interactive information-sharing session at the University of Indonesia. The session focused on PCG’s transition towards a circular economy, the Be Green programme and its Plastic, Sustainability & You Education module.

PCG, through its subsidiary, PT PCM Kimia Indonesia, also donated 20 recycling bins to the university to be placed across the campus, making it easier for students to practise 3R.

Be Green, established in 2013, aims to create a positive impact on society through education and collaborative recycling activities. PCG promotes responsible waste management and 3R through engagements with schools and the surrounding local communities in PCG’s areas of operations.

This programme is also in support of Petronas’ social impact activation efforts on the environment (Planting Tomorrow) through engagements with local communities and minimising the environmental impact. - Bernama
