We believe in building a strong and positive presence in the communities we operate by empowering and enabling those in needs through our corporate social responsibility activities.
Our social responsibility activities are coordinated through the Danamon Peduli Foundation. Officially incorporated as a legal independent entity in 2006, Danamon Peduli is a foundation that supports sustainable, community driven activities and volunteerism, reflecting the bank’s vision “We care and enable millions to prosper”.
One of our major programs is “My Clean, Healthy and Prosperous Market”, which was launched in 2004 to revitalize the traditional market all over Indonesia as an important economic pillar. Danamon Go Green was launched in 2007 to further empower traditional markets by introducing an integrated waste management system to convert market waste into high quality organic fertilizer. Danamon Go Green is the 1st runner up of the BBC World Challenge 2009, the sole finalist representing Indonesia in the global competition run by BBC World News, Newsweek and Shell - rewarding grass roots projects who gives back to their communities.
We also channel our assistance to help those hit by natural disasters in Indonesia through the Relief, Recovery and Reconstruction program.
Danamon Peduli Scholarship program provides education assistance to students from less privileged communities, and since 2004 we’ve awarded about 500 scholarships to students in elementary school to university level.
