As one of the countries facing significant risks from climate change, Indonesia has committed to reduce carbon emissions by 29% towards 2030. In recognizing this significant reduction and consideration of critical urgency of sustainability, Danamon manifested its commitment to the implementation of sustainable finance by establishing a Sustainability Committee in 2019. This committee is responsible for implementing five priority program plans as part of Danamon's aspirations to meet POJK Number 51/POJK.03/2017 provisions concerning the Implementation of Sustainable Finance for Financial Services Institutions, Issuers, and Public Companies.
“It is an honor to receive the Platinum Greenship Certification from Green Building Council Indonesia and Danamon is very grateful for this. This certification is a testament to our continuous efforts in fulfilling our commitment towards sustainability through the implementation of Sustainable Finance. Through this remarkable opportunity, I am proud to announce that Danamon is the first bank in Indonesia to receive the Platinum Greenship Certification in the Head Office category,” says Herry Hykmanto, Danamon Syariah Director .

In line with Danamon’s objective and enthusiasm in promoting sustainability, and as part of the MUFG family which strongly advocates commitment of achieving Carbon Neutrality, the Bank has similarly upheld its responsibility to support Carbon Neutrality initiatives. Our efforts meet government and regulating bodies' rules and guidelines while aligning with MUFG principles. One of the steps taken by Danamon in this regard is to approximate greenhouse gas emissions as a group, which includes its subsidiary Adira Finance. At the end of fiscal year 2021, Danamon succeeded in reducing emissions by 24.6% to 45.3K CO2e metric tons from 2019.
“Danamon believes that it is extremely crucial to highlight sustainability in order to provide a healthy environment for our grandchildren in the future. Danamon remains confident that the implementation of Sustainable Financing will have a positive impact on our lives, not just for individuals but also for various businesses and economic sectors,” Herry added.

In the future, Danamon will continue to develop strategic initiatives and systematically reduce emissions in operational activities. Several approaches are already in place, among which are power saving initiatives, self-generating electricity through use of solar panels and purchase of Renewable Energy Certificates (REC). Also, Danamon will focus on various financing opportunities aimed at supporting sustainability, such as solar panel installation as a source of renewable energy, as well as the transition to battery and electric vehicles which benefits sustainable utilization of electricity and fuel.
