SPV Community care
Being part of a community means being the partner of a social contract. Good relationships and trust have to be fostered and maintained if they are to become a social capital. PT. South Pacific Viscose (SPV) realizes the importance of social capital for sustainable development and sustainable business.
It integrated social concerns into its business by assuming Corporate Social Responsibility in general and the development of surrounding community in particular. It recently set up its own community development department to live this responsibility. Programs are conceived carefully and comprehensively. They are reviewed critically so as to be in harmony with the community’s capabilities. Activities with neighboring communities range from matters of education, health, social, and cultural, infrastructure, economic by promoting entrepreneurship, and media communication.
3. Micro Credit
Providing micro credit to emerging small scale businesses of the community. The program started in April 2008 with the goal of strengthening the entrepreneurship spirit of the local community villagers and to raise prosperity in line with SPV’s motto “Help people to help themselves”. It funds food stalls, small shops, cattle breeders, snack production, and so forth. SPV’s micro credits are much in demand as it is almost impossible for people with no or only limited income to get a bank loan. Before a credit is given the business idea is assessed and the credentials of the applicant are checked. The number of non-collectable loans is very low.
SPV’s operational business generated business potential for others. SPV provides these opportunities; we provide counseling in how to become a company supplier of subcontractor. Moreover, we provide other new business ideas and finance loan, be it a dust-cloth small industry made of waste fabric, palette manufacturing, and used plastic sack recycling.
6. Social and Cultural Activities
7. Communication Media
SPV publishes Warta Comdev, a magazine distributed free of charge to the surrounding community and other stakeholders. Warta Comdev reports on development activities in the surrounding communities. Moreover, the magazine offers a community opinion column under the motto Foster Relationships and Community Development.
SPV will increase its fiber production capacity by 80,000 tons per year with the construction of line 5, which will operate by end of 2012. This addition capacity will increase SPV’s total production to 325,000 tons per year.
