The President Director of Pertamina, Nicke Widyawati, welcomed the award. For her, PROPER is very important, because, as an energy company, the biggest challenge is how Pertamina can transform the fossil energy business into new and renewable energy or sustainable energy.

PROPER is the foundation that provides guidance in developing sustainability programs and realizing the Future Fit Society. Pertamina’s participation in PROPER and our success in obtaining Blue, Green, and Gold PROPER ratings is proof that our sustainable business is to answer the Future Energy Challenge,” said Nicke.

Nicke expressed her gratitude to the Ministry of Environment and Forestry and the PROPER Advisory Council for their direction and guidance to Pertamina in managing and protecting the environment and in developing programs that exceed other compliances, including biodiversity management and community development.

“Hopefully, Pertamina can continue to carry out the mandate to maintain Indonesia’s energy security and answer the main global challenges related to mitigation and adaptation to climate change,” said Nicke.
