The PROPER Awards, also known as Program Penilaian Peringkat Kinerja Perusahaan dalam Pengelolaan Lingkungan Hidup, is a program launched in 1995 with support from the World Bank and United States – Asia Environmental Partnership (USAEP)/ United States Agency for International Development (USAID) to encourage public disclosure of Indonesian companies’ environmental performance, across all industries. This is to help increase compliance to existing regulations and incentivise companies to go beyond regulatory requirements.
PROPER has a five color-coded assessment rating scheme – Gold, Green, Blue, Red and Black. With Gold and Green ratings awarded to companies that exemplify best practices by going beyond the standard of legal requirements, and black ratings indicating the lowest in performance level.
“With the increasing need for companies to be accountable for clean, sustainable operations and supply chains, Musim Mas is proud to have participated in PROPER, demonstrating that we go beyond the legal compliance to show our commitment to transparency. We are happy to be leading the Palm Oil industry at the Green PROPER Awards twice in a row, and we will continue to strive towards achieving higher standards and improving our sustainability performance,” said Togar Sitanggang, General Manager, PT Musim Mas.
