    Employee volunteering project in Indonesia to mark DB Schenker’s 150 Years Anniversary milestone

    In celebration of our 150th anniversary year, DB Schenker in Indonesia put the campaign’s theme of “Elevating Lives” into action by organizing an employee volunteering project, together with non-profit organization, Sebumi.

    In celebration of our 150th anniversary year, DB Schenker in Indonesia put the campaign’s theme of “Elevating Lives” into action by organizing an employee volunteering project, together with non-profit organization, Sebumi. On July 16, a group of passionate volunteers embarked on a sustainability journey to help with mangrove restoration and coral regeneration on Pramuka Island. This tiny island is part of the Thousand Islands (Kepulauan Seribu) archipelago, situated in the western part of the Java Sea, close to Jakarta.  

    The experience on the island was unique and unforgettable. Ecosystems such as coral reefs and mangroves provide an effective first line of defence against coastal damage caused by tsunamis and hurricanes. The roots of Mangrove trees protect the land from erosion. They also serve as a haven for corals. Besides mangrove restoration and coral regeneration, the island also provides conservation facilities for hawksbill turtles, a critically endangered sea turtle.

    During the day, our colleagues learned a lot about the corals in mangroves and why protection matters. Together with volunteers from Smiling Coral Indonesia, the group planted 100 mangrove trees and transplanted 80 embedded fragments of baby coral.

    Yosua Surbakti, Head of Ocean Freight, said: “It was a great activity. I am very pleased to see so much commitment from our colleagues and the company to support the environment and the community.”

    Septi Wulandari, QHSSE System Supervisor, commented: “I was very happy and touched to have the opportunity to participate in this CSR event. One small action can have a big impact on the environment, sea animals, and the world in general.” 

    “My SPU colleagues thoroughly enjoyed this “150 Years Elevating Lives” employee volunteering activity. This will increase environmental awareness. It will also improve cross department teamwork because employees from different department spend the day together and got to know each other better”, said Nur Adicty, People & Organization Rewards & People Digital Transformation.

    Rossy Pynkan, Head of Key Account Manager Consumer & Retail Vertical Market, Sales & Sales Planning, said: “It was an exciting and fun activity. With this activity we support DB Schenker’s sustainability strategy. The steady increase of global warming is having a significant impact on CO2 emission. So it is now our turn to give back to nature for a sustainable future.”

    “Many moments were unforgettable. The world's most spectacular areas, like coral reefs are also the foundation of ocean life. Many of the sea's most exquisite species will not survive without them. Let's move to save the marine ecosystems”, said Nurul Utami, IT Admin. 

    The next two years the growth of the mangroves and the regeneration of the coral will be closely monitored.
