We focus on business, environment, and community sustainability

In support of the government's program on environmental protection, cooperative development, enhancing farmers income, and ensuring steady supply of raw materials, Pakerin has established a nursery and research project for tropical wood in Mojokerto, East Java.


Nature Conservation

Pakerin has a strong commitment to conservation and preservation of environment. Recycling is central to the Company's manufacturing process, with more than 80% of the Company's raw materials being waste products. Approximately 65% comes from waste paper and 15 -20% represents semi-chemical pulp and scrap wood purchased from local farmers and suppliers. Pakerin does not use rain forest timber.


Creating Employment Opportunities

The use of waste paper on such a large scale has created many jobs in the paper collection and contributed significantly to cleaning the urban environment. The scrap wood component for pulp-making comes from fast-growing tropical trees, predominately the Sengon tree (paraserianthes falcataria), grown by local farmers on waste ground and road-sides. Pakerin distributes the seeds of Sengon tree to the local farmers at no cost, provides technical assistance and trainings for planting, and buys back the wood for pulping approximately five years later.

In addition, Pakerin has employed more than 2000 workers in its factory in Mojokerto for both staff and non-staff positions.


Industrial Waste Management

One of the largest components of the Company's manufacturing complex is the waste water treatment plant which is supported by extensive technical and engineering services. The plant combines waste water treatment and recycling in one operation. It is consistently being upgraded to maximize efficiency and provide quality water. After the final treatment to stringent government requirements, water is piped into the public irrigation system, as requested by local farmers, enabling them to double or triple the crops production.

Sludge from the water treatment process is recycled as fuel to generate energy in the production process.
