Trinseo (NYSE: TSE), a global materials solutions provider and manufacturer of plastics, latex binders and synthetic rubber, recently announced that Hanggara Sukandar, President Director of PT Trinseo Materials Indonesia, has been elected to Director of Sustainability for Responsible Care® Indonesia (RCI).
Since 2010, Trinseo has been a proud member of the American Chemistry Council’s Responsible Care® program, a voluntary initiative of the global chemical industry designed to improve environmental, health, and safety (EH&S) and security performance for facilities, processes, and products. The formation of the RCI leadership for the period 2019-2022 was agreed upon at meetings held in Jakarta, Indonesia.
“The Director of Sustainability is a new position in the RCI organizational structure,” Sukandar said. “My role will be to elaborate the concrete steps of the vision and mission of ‘Sustainability,’ namely through the principles of Responsible Care® and the Global Product Strategy. The chemical industry is committed to advancing sustainable management of materials in all its phases, and achieving greater transparency in the environment, health, and safety and security performance.”
Sukandar is expected to collaborate with all RCI board members, to realize that Responsible Care® is the centerpiece of this global commitment. While the new role will provide added value to PT Trinseo Materials Indonesia, Sukandar is delighted to be in a position to contribute more to the growth of sustainable practices within the country as a whole.
In September, PT Trinseo Materials Indonesia launched a sustainability initiative known as “Let’s Do Recycling Program.” The Program aims at advocating the use and the recycling of polystyrene (PS) – a sustainable and safe food packaging material – through an alliance of manufacturers, restaurants, consumers, recycling associations, and other stakeholders in Indonesia. The goal of this program can only be realized with the support of all stakeholders. Collection centers have been identified to collect and process PS foam waste for onward recycling.
