Forging a Strong Alliance for The Sustainability Programme


After three years of promoting, campaigning and educating member companies and the Indonesian business community about sustainable development, this year Most Valued Business’s (MVB) 2019 mission is to actively engage and create more initiatives with its Knowledge Partners to encourage the private sector to increase their sustainable stewardship practices.
