Beside the above main activities, Hino Indonesia also cooperates with many schools, non-government organizations, local government and the government of the Republic of Indonesia. To achieve the goals of CSR programs, Hino Indonesia selects reliable partners by conducting a survey every year. These organizations, such as WWF, YAYORIN, Indonesian Red Cross, etc were selected as they share the vision and mission of Hino Indonesia’s CSR program.

Monitoring reports of these programs are also submitted by recipients regularly to the Hino Indonesia CSR committee. Hino Indonesia’s CSR committee also conducts evaluations of these programs to further improve effectiveness of those programs and improve their contribution to the society.

Hino Indonesia Director, Mrs. J. Ralhan expressed, “Hino Indonesia designed the vehicle rear body to match the need in supporting individual CSR programs which has inspired other contributors. As a result, more and more mobile vehicles for various purposes were donated recently.”

During the interview, Mrs. J. Ralhan said, “Hino Indonesia is one of the corporate members of WWF. We would like to take part in their programs in the future which meet Hino Indonesia’s CSR requirements. On top of that, Hino Indonesia is exploring the possibility of expanding its focus to include community empowerment in the future to enhance the economic condition of underprivileged people. We aim to reach this by providing training to increase the skills of underprivileged people. This will enable them to become skillful, self reliant, independent people who can work using skills from those training.”

Hino Indonesia CSR activities have proven to benefit the relevant stakeholders and recipients. The environmental activities have raised the awareness of the society on the importance of environment protection and conservation of

wildlife. The health activities have improved the health condition of many underprivileged people, and the education activities have improved the skills of the recipients. They have directly or indirectly contributed to the development of the country’s economy and environmental protection.

With the encouraging results, Hino Indonesia is looking forward to expanding on an even bigger and organized way to contribute to the Indonesian society in the near future.
