Making The World a Better Home

Making The World a Better Home

Saint-Gobain Indonesia, together with Habitat for Humanity Indonesia, held a volunteering activity titled “Act to Build: Making The World a Better Home” in Marga Mulya Village, Mauk District, Tangerang Regency, Banten, on Saturday, February 17, 2024.

The active participation of Saint-Gobain Indonesia in building decent homes for low-income families was attended by 80 volunteers, including members of the management team such as Ivana Ijaya as Country CEO, Dona Rivai as Country HR Director, Ivan Haloho as Country EHS Director, and Apsara Herman as Marketing Director, as well as dozens of employees.

This volunteering activity is part of the first phase of support for building 10 houses out of a total of 20 houses in the ongoing project of Saint-Gobain Indonesia together with Habitat.

Interestingly, the activities, starting from laying the foundation, building house walls, to plastering, use products from Saint-Gobain’s Main Mortar, with its flagship product being environmentally friendly instant cement. In addition, the construction of these houses also uses eco-bricks made from a mixture of plastic waste as part of the “Climate Smart Housing” program.

Hopefully, this activity can be a positive milestone for the company in demonstrating its commitment to sustainable CSR programs, to realize the well-being of low-income communities and a form of concern for the environment.

“This activity is the output of a shared vision and values between Saint-Gobain and Habitat Indonesia in supporting life and sustainable construction. Our hope is that after the construction of these houses, the homeowners can live happier and more comfortably in their new homes,” said Ivana Ijaya, Country CEO of Saint-Gobain Indonesia.

The enthusiasm of the volunteers in the event has been a valuable experience, inspiring them to continue actively contributing to society and bringing positive changes to the lives of the residents of Marga Mulya Village.
