This aligns with the company’s commitment to supporting business sustainability. We hope these initiatives will positively impact environmental sustainability,” said Sara K. Loebis.
The Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources, through the Directorate General of New Energy, Renewable Energy, and Energy Conservation, continues to promote the responsible and efficient use of energy using renewable energy.

For example, the central courtyard of the 10-story building is elevated to serve as an oasis for natural light and fresh air to flow throughout the construction. This space saves energy by integrating photovoltaic panels (solar panels), installing green walls, and recycling water through an environmentally friendly water treatment system.
