Bank Mandiri Donates Garbage Trucks to Jakarta Provincial Government

Jakarta, 1 September 2014 – Bank Mandiri has donated three garbage trucks to the Jakarta Provincial Government to support waste management in the capital. The trucks were officially handed over ​​by Bank Mandiri CEO Budi Gunadi Sadikin to Deputy Jakarta Governor Basuki Tjahaja Purnama at City Hall on Monday (1 Sept).

Budi Sadikin said that the donation represented a concrete manifestation of Bank Mandiri’s commitment to making Jakarta a cleaner place to live.

“We want to provide assistance that will be felt by the public, such as through the donation of these garbage trucks,” Budi Sadikin explained.

Bank Mandiri, Budi Sadikin said, hoped that the assistance would help improve the public services provided by the city government. He added that Jakarta still needed a large number of additional garbage trucks so as to be able to effectively address its garbage problems.

The donation was funded by Bank Mandiri’s Environmental Development Program, which currently rests on three main pillars, firstly, self-reliance through education and entrepreneurship, which is promoted through the “Wirausaha Muda Mandiri” (Mandiri Young Entrepreneur) Program and the Mandiri Peduli Pendidikan (Mandiri Cares for Education) Program, both of which are designed to help mold future leaders who are capable of meeting the challenges of global competition.

Secondly, the creation of self-reliant communities through the “Mandiri Bersama Mandiri” (Self Reliant with Mandiri) Program, which involves the integrated mentoring of community groups and communities in the areas of capacity, infrastructure, capability and access.

And finally, promoting financial literacy so as to make the public better aware of the importance of financial management skills as part of long-term life planning.
