Throughout the years, the company has adapted to rapid changes and overcome many challenges. Today, we remain focused on continuing our contribution to Indonesia and harder to further sustainability.
For PT. Bakrie & Brothers Tbk, sustainable growth is ingrained within our company values. We work to uphold and balance the key aspects of Profitability & Growth, Environmental Impact, and Social Benefit. For this reason, we are a natural partner to fulfill the global effort of sustainable development.
We recognize that the products produced by our company have an impact on the environment. PT. Bakrie & Brothers Tbk is committed to use recycled and environmentally friendly materials to make sustainable products.
Steel is still one of the most commonly recycled materials on the planet. In the process of making autopart components, PT. Bakrie Autoparts uses recycled materials from the excess scrap from the component machining process as raw materials for the casting process.
In construction, PT. Bakrie Building Industries has taken calculated steps to utilize environmentally friendly materials to produce an artificial wood substitution made of calcium silicate fiber called Versa Wood. Since 2015, Versa Wood has been awarded the Green Listing Award due to its proven quality and its impact on reducing deforestation.
Over the last few years our company has been working closely with the local and central government to develop Indonesia’s first electric bus fleet for TransJakarta, where we will push the electrification of Indonesia’s public transport one city at a time.
To further cement our commitment for sustainable transformation, we are heavily supportive of, and have invested in, multiple green energy projects to harness the full potential of Indonesia’s renewable energy. PT. Bakrie Power, focuses on developing clean energy by building renewable energy plants including geothermal, solar panels, wind turbines and biomass.
