The Global CSR Awards 2017 is Asia’s most prestigious Recognition Awards programme for Corporate Social Responsibility. The programme recognizes and honors companies for outstanding, innovative and world-class products, services and projects implemented in the past or present. These projects should demonstrate the company’s leadership, sincerity and on-going commitment in incorporating ethical values, compliance with legal requirements, and respect for individuals, communities and the environment in the way they do business.
Jawa Power’s water conservation project in Selobanteng Village, Situbondo Regency, East Java, has provided solution for the local community in anticipating water scarcity during dry seasons. The project also improves the ground water natural cycle in the area which in turns minimizes the climate change impact in the region. The project has received recognition in the 9th Annual Global CSR Summit and Awards 2017 as the best water conservation project. The event was held in Langkawi, Malaysia, on 30 – 31 March 2017.
