We at MVB strongly believe in the “Triple Bottom Line” where “People” and “Planet” are equally as important as “Profit”. Where the environment and the community are valued by companies as much as money is . Sadly for the great majority of Indonesian businesspeople that is still far from the case which is why we are continuing our crusade to persuade everyone to embrace better ways.

But there is still hope, as there are companies that are still trying to make Indonesia a better place for our next generation and we are inspired by their dedication and commitment to become sustainable and responsible companies.

To that end, we are proud to introduce six companies who have excellent track records as responsible companies and announce their participation as MVB 2018 Members :
