CEO Forum Called the Human RIght Due Diligence Implementation as Responsible Business during in COVID-19 Pandemic

The event was opened by Arsjad Rasjid, Chairman of Indonesian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (KADIN), H.E. Yasonna H. Laoly, Minister of Law and Human Rights,  Vincent Piket, EU Ambassador of Indonesia and Brunei, and Sophie Kemkhadze, Deputy Resident Representative UNDP Indonesia.

In the opening remarks, Sophie Kemkhadze, Deputy Resident Representative UNDP Indonesia stated that 7.5 million Indonesians lost their jobs. It was devastating but we all need to focus on the opportunity to take a chance to rebuild our economy by creating more jobs and protecting human rights as a responsible business. Arsjad Rasjid, Chairman of KADIN also stated KADIN as the organization for all industry plays an active role in helping the government by carrying out the battle of social, economic, and health by having a CEO Forum discussion to explore the impact of the increasing momentum of the business and human rights narrative on business finance strategy and practice.

H.E. Yasonna H. Laoly, Minister of Law and Human Rights conveyed that the human rights principle during a pandemic is crucial and should be prioritized by businesses. The companies can refer to United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGPs) which describe the role and responsibilities for state and companies normative frameworks and implementation procedures.  Vincent Piket, EU Ambassador of Indonesia and Brunei also agreed with Yasonna’s remarks. He added every stakeholder in the country has to collaborate and support each other to face the pandemic and build new resilience.

Later on the event, Livio Sarandrea, Business and Human Rights Advisor UNDP; Yono Reksoprodjo, Vice President of Corporate Affairs Sintesa Group; Anne Patricia Sutanto, Vice CEO PT Pan Brothers, Tbk, Sera Noviany Sustainability Manager APP Sinarmas, and Evie Yulin, President Director PT Merck, Tbk were joined on the panel discussions on human rights due diligence practices within the Indonesia business.

Livio reflects the growth of responsible business globally in Asia and grew very fast in the 5 years as well as Indonesia. It was shown by the involvement and knowledge of CEO’s in human rights as business actors. UNGP now are helping Indonesian companies to enlarge what they understand about humans right to the next step of implementation on the business thought capacity building training.

As IBCSD members are concerned, Sintesa Group addresses human rights as a benefit to achieving SDGs. While PAN Brother conducts HRDD by valuing humanity based on i-PAN and Pancasila. As well as APP Sinar Mas respects human rights through Sustainability Roadmap Vision, Forest Conservation Policy on Social Commitment, Employee Welfare, and Business Code and Conduct. Merck identified the priorities towards access to health, community, product stewardship, security, and workplace as the principle of HRDD processes. One of the common challenges in implementing HRDD in business was to have the same understanding and awareness.

At the end of the panel session, the business agreed that companies in Indonesia are open to mandatory or voluntary basis regulations for implementing HRDD. However, the business expects collaboration with the government to achieve stakeholder readiness in implementing regulations through policymaker engagement, private sector discussions, partnerships, socialization, and clarity of detailed guidelines in order to have the same understanding of the impact on the business and society.

Human Right Due Diligence Training for Business in Indonesia

In Indonesia, UNDP supports the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business Human Rights (UNGPs) is done inclusively and based on international standards. UNGPs use HRDD to help businesses assess and mitigate threats to the lives and dignity of stakeholders, including employees, vulnerable groups, communities, and consumers. Even though conducting HRDD does not have a direct impact on profitability. It would help companies avoid reputational and operational harm that might, for example, accompany charges of forced labor. 

As the commitment to leverage the knowledge, understanding, and practical skills of human rights due diligence, UNDP and IBCSD had collaborated to host a series of Training on Human Rights Due Diligence for Business in Indonesia virtually on 21, 23, 27, and 29 September 2021. The training was attended by more than 31participants and opened by Elim Sritaba, Chief Sustainability Officer Asia Pulp & Paper represents the Executive Committee of IBCSD; Siprianus Bate Soro, Team Leader of Democratic Governance and Poverty Reduction, UNDP Indonesia; and Sean Less, Business and Human Rights Specialist, UNDP Asia Pacific.

Many speakers from the Raoul Wallenberg Institute (RWI), UNDP, UNICEF, ILO, Komnas HAM, and ELSAM lectured during the training. The training began with an overview of business and human rights, followed by discussions of business duties in human rights policy, human rights due diligence (introduction, identification, and evaluation), and corporate integration, monitoring impacts, and communicating reports on measures taken.

Ensuring that human rights in business operations are protected, respected, and promoted is a shared responsibility of governments, businesses, and organizations.

 

 

 

Sustainability Talk: Improving Sustainable Business Practices on Learning from the COVID-19 Pandemic

Oke Nurwan, Director General of Domestic Trade, Ministry of Trade, also conveyed that the COVID-19 pandemic had an impact on changes in the trade. In maintaining the sustainable industry, Oke said that 9 things are the focus in the Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP) framework. The regulations for implementing industrial sustainability have been translated into various regulations by the Ministry and the Regional Regulations. But the next question is, can Indonesia commit to SDG 2030 from the Covid-19 pandemic?

Arief Susanto – Head of Sustainability Program & Impact / Social Contribution, the Association of Indonesian Food and Beverage Entrepreneurs (GAPMMI) said that during the pandemic the food and beverage industry is no longer only concerned with food availability and food security, but also natural resources and resilience. For this reason, the food and beverage industry has a role to help the community become a top priority. The best effort is how the community is still able to buy their needs (affordability), have easy access (accessibility), and fulfill their nutritional and nutritional needs.

In the sharing session, Debasmita Kumar, Sustainability Strategy, Accenture Development Partnerships explained that despite the pandemic, global demand for palm oil continues to increase, raising concerns about the negative impact on Southeast Asia. This is because the current trend in the palm oil industry has led to the 100% RSPO-CSPO’s commitment. Unfortunately, however, less than 25% of palm oil companies in Asia are RSPO certified.

The panel discussion discussing palm oil products and sustainable sourcing presented various perspectives from resource persons attended by Emil Satria, Director of Forest and Plantation Products Industry, Ministry of Industry; Ribut Triwanti, Deputy Head of Sustainability Program & Impact/Social Contribution, GAPMMI; Ali, Triambodo, RSPO Management Representative, PT Wahana Citra Nabati; Arya Kusumo, Sustainability Department Head, PT Lion Super Indo; Kharisma Fitriasari, Head of Corporate Communications, PT Mondelez Indonesia; Joko Sarjito, Sustainable Commodities Program Manager, WWF Indonesia Foundation and moderated by Risyika Putri Istanti, Deputy Head of the Lingkar Temu Kabupaten Lestari Program.

To encourage increased absorption of sustainable palm oil in Indonesia, Emil Satria said that the government has designed ISPO (Indonesian Sustainable Palm Oil) regulations for the management system of oil palm plantations from upstream to downstream, issuance of progressive levy tariff policies, harmonization of export customs and incentives for R&D and other activities. vocation. In a state of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Ministry of Industry issued a Mobility and Industrial Activity Operational Permit (IOMKI).

The palm oil industry sector both upstream and downstream has remained high-performing during this pandemic. In the upstream sector, the price of CPO which tends to be high from the beginning of the pandemic until now has been able to become the mainstay of creating the welfare of the oil palm farming community, especially in the 3Ts (Outermost, Innermost and Disadvantaged). Meanwhile, in the downstream sector, the supply capacity of the oleochemical industry has a high enough demand for the domestic and export markets.

Later in the session, Ali Triambodo and Arya Kusumo shared success stories of collaboration between upstream and downstream companies in realizing sustainability in the palm oil industry. PT Wahana Citra Nabati and Superindo made an action plan for sustainable palm oil which strives to provide healthier choices for customers. These two companies carry out an education campaign on sustainable product awareness by releasing a collaboration product of palm cooking oil with the RSPO label code. While Kharisma Fitriasari also shared the commitment of PT Mondelez Indonesia in the use of palm oil with the “Palm Oil Action Plan” and Traceability. Where Mondelez uses RSPO certified palm oil suppliers.

WWF Indonesia strives to help companies by assisting, enlightenment so that they can meet sustainability and traceability standards both downstream and upstream. In addition, WWF Indonesia also encourages companies that already commit to sustainability, provide education to their consumers.

Ribut Triwanti stated that GAPMMI has encouraged its members to practice sustainability. This is a challenge because as an association, GAPMMI must be able to provide knowledge and awareness of the extent to which members understand and desire to redesign business strategies towards sustainable practices. Because implementing sustainability is not easy and cheap. Requires time and resources, government support in implementation as well as assistance and monitoring.

From this panel discussion, the speakers called to action through 4K (Komitmen, Kiat, Kolaborasi dan Kontribusi). Strong commitment from the regulatory side. Tips for real action that are innovative and creative in turning challenges into opportunities. Collaboration and Contribution of all parties to achieve sustainable consumption and production practices.
