Protecting Nature Sustainability

Corporate Social Responsibility

The decreasing extent of tropical rain forests has become a global problem. With a strong commitment PT. Rimba Partikel Indonesia has sought to protect the environment by preserving nature which implemented in the CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) programs focused on greening activities. One of them, by giving seedlings free of charge to people who wants to plant tree on their land and buy back once the tree has grown. It also impact the economy while helping to improve people's welfare.

On May 2002, RPI inaugurated the nursery center in the village of Meteseh, Boja District, which is ±25 Km from the factory. This facility would produce Acacia Mangium, Gmelina Arborea, and Eucalyptus Pellita seeds. The nursery center area is covering 4.5 Ha with production capacity of 1,500,000 seedlings per year with other additional types as well.

These species were chosen because they are easy to grow in Kendal and the surrounding areas (including marginal/unproductive land). And these species of trees are also included in the category of Fast Growing Species (FGS) so they can be harvested at the age of 4-5 years. They can be planted on the roadside, office yard, home, school, or privately owned land.

In November 2006, RPI signed a planting cooperation contract with PERHUTANI UNIT I in Central Java, specifically entering the Semarang KPH area where in 4 years RPI planted approximately 2,500 Ha. In addition to government agencies, we also carry out collaborative planting program with communities that are members of the Forest Farmers Group (KTH) in various regions including Batang, Pekalongan, and Banjarnegara, even with KTH "Giri Yuwono" Duren Village, Pagedongan District, Banjarnegara District that we have developed can become champions. The First I of the Forest Farmers Group (KTH) in the framework of the National Level of Wana Lestari Greening and Conservation Nature in 2012. As of November 2017 we have distributed more than 12 million seedlings.

The expectation of these CSR programs were to meet the raw material required in Particle Board manufacturing to create sustainable production cycle. Criteria for trees that can be used as raw material with a diameter of 8-25 cm with a trunk shape doesn’t have to be straight and large.

We also utilize Wet Dust (Zero emission) waste by hoarding some time until it decomposes completely and then using it as a Gmelina Arborea growing medium.
