In line with the Company’s mission to contribute to the well-being of the community and environment, as well as to deliver continuous growth of stakeholders’ value, Kalbe is committed to implement sustainable corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities.
Kalbe’s corporate social responsibility activities are based on the “triple bottom line: People-Planet-Profit” principles, to maintain a harmonious balance between economic performance (profit), social performance (people) and environmental performance (planet).
Kalbe’s CSR programs cover the following four key areas:
• community development;
• environmental stewardship;
• labor, occupational safety and health practices; and
• product responsibility.
Kalbe’s community development activities actively seek opportunities to conduct programs in education, environment and infrastructure development. These activities are coordinated by a dedicated, full time Corporate Social Responsibility Unit that reports directly to Kalbe’s Board of Directors. This Unit is mainly responsible for coordinating the Company’s Kalbe Cares, or Kalbe Berbagi, which serves as an umbrella for Kalbe’s entire community development programs.
