INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - The National Development Planning Agency (Bappenas) is boosting the preparation of the National Action Plan (RAN) of Sustainable Development Objectives or better known as Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Bappenas Deputy of Natural Resources and Natural Resources Bappenas Arifin Rudiyanto said one of the discussions in the preparation is how to utilize private Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) funds to support the implementation of SDGs in Indonesia.
"This is what we all agree on, what kind of CSR can support SDGs, so this National Plan of Action will be a 'platform' together now we are still compiling," said Arifin when met at the National Workshop "Contribution of Business in Achieving Sustainable Development Objectives "in Jakarta, Thursday (30/11/2017)
In SNI ISO 26000 it is affirmed that sustainable development is the goal of CSR. These international standards emphasize that CSR is not just a donation or philanthropy, but rather an effort to manage the risks and impacts of the company, which are conducted throughout the company and applied in every relationship with the stakeholders.
"We plan to put together, this is what the government is doing, CSR can help at what level, in which field, but in accordance with our program so fill each other," said Arifin.
In 2015 alone, Indonesia also agreed to SDGs as a continuation of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) which is expected to be achieved by 2030.
The government then issued the Presidential Regulation (Perpres) Number 59 of 2017 on the Implementation of the Achievement of Sustainable Development Objectives because the government considers the need for a hardening with the National Long Term Development Plan and the National Medium Term Development Plan.
The Presidential Regulation is intended as a follow-up agreement in Transforming Our World: The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development to end poverty, improve public health, promote education, and combat climate change.
The Presidential Regulation stipulates 17 goals and 169 targets and is in line with the targets of the National Medium-Term Development Plan (RPJMN) 2015-2019, and further outlined in the Roadmap, the National Plan of Action (RAN), and the RAD (Action Plan) of Development Goals.
The Minister of National Development Planning / Head of Bappenas is mandated to draft and establish a National Road Map of TPB and RAN TPB including coordinating, facilitation and facilitation of Annual RB TPB 5, monitoring and evaluation, reporting on the achievement of national and regional level TPB, funding sources.
Previously, Head of Bappenas Bambang Brodjonegoro also discussed the financing scheme of "blended finance" with President Joko Widodo for the purpose of achieving SDGs. By using a "blended finance" scheme involving the private sector, through its CSR funds to achieve SDGs, the magnitude of social-purpose project funds can be light because of joint investments.
Bappenas itself is reviewing the arrangement of commercial funds with contribution funds in "blended finance". Until now, conditions that occur in the country still do not apply "blended finance" Blended finance scheme can be used for social purposes such as integrated waste management or renewable energy development.
Bambang said, the potential of donation itself is also not only limited in the country but also from abroad, especially if associated with SDGs. Because there are quite a lot of donations related to SDGs or more specifically to address issues such as climate change.
"That's what we want to use and we combine to be more beneficial to the community," said Bambang. (Ant)
