Pertamina: 8,300 Participants Join the Pertamina Eco-RunFest 2022 Sustainable Lifestyle with Enthusiasm
As many as 8,300 participants enthusiastically welcomed the sustainable lifestyle education initiated by Pertamina in the Pertamina Eco-RunFest 2022.
Pertamina implements a sustainable lifestyle in the Pertamina Eco-RunFest held at Istora Senayan Jakarta on Sunday, November 27, 2022. It includes an eco-friendly material design, responsible waste management, and is plastic-free. Everything is entirely eco-friendly and emission-free.
Pertamina has also introduced an eco market that promotes products with a sustainability aspect.
The MSME participants in this event were picked to promote sustainable living. Thus, products marketed are environmentally friendly.
President Director of Pertamina, Nicke Widyawati, said Pertamina Eco – RunFest 2022 is an annual event to welcome Pertamina’s 65th anniversary.
“Two years ago, we held the event virtually because of the pandemic. Now, we are starting again but with a different concept. There are eco runs and eco fests with educational programs for the community and also involving MSMEs,” said Nicke when releasing Pertamina Eco-RunFest 2022 participants.
According to Nicke, the public interest is substantial so that participants are limited according to capacity and still maintain safety and comfort of participants.
Nicke added that Pertamina Eco – RunFest is part of Pertamina’s campaign to face future challenges, namely climate change.
“We educate people to start from ourselves to contribute to reducing carbon emissions. We have to do energy efficiency and do the concept of reuse, reduce, recycle waste,” added Nicke.
In this event, Pertamina also provided trash cans and asked all participants to dispose of waste in its place because it would be reprocessed. The wet waste will be processed into compost, while plastic waste will be processed into items of economic value, such as cellphone cases, tumbler handles, and more.
To overcome climate change, we have to start with ourselves. It is the concept that we are carrying out today,” said Nicke.
