Jakarta, Indonesia (Nov. 14, 2017) – PT IAPMO Group Indonesia and the Green Product Council Indonesia (GPCI) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) appointing PT IAPMO Group Indonesia as a Verification Body for Green Label Indonesia certification.
As a result of the MoU, PT IAPMO Group Indonesia will provide product testing and verification inspection for manufacturers applying to obtain Green Label Indonesia certification.
The MoU was signed Oct. 19 by Hendrata Atmoko, GPCI Chairman, and Shirley Dewi, Senior Vice President of PT IAPMO Group Indonesia.
"As to our firm commitment to the government and nation to establish a green and healthy building program in Indonesia,” Atmoko said, “GPCI has started developing the rating tools for the building materials used in every building, both residential and high-rise buildings. This is especially important considering that 80 percent of the population lives and/or works in these types of buildings. The reason GPCI appoints PT IAPMO Group Indonesia is because among all the candidates that GPCI reviewed, PT IAPMO Group Indonesia is the most credible and the most competent in fulfilling the objective of GPCI. Also, being a multinational organization, IAPMO has the testing capability to support Green Label Indonesia certification.”
Home to the world’s fifth-largest population, Indonesia is expected to see an acceleration in the rate of infrastructure growth to follow the high demand. The GPCI encourages the use of environmentally friendly building materials in order to maintain a balance with nature.
Certified environmental raw materials — as well as their efficient use during the production process — play an important role in producing high-quality, environmentally friendly products. An energy- and water-efficient production process is key to conserving natural resources and reducing emissions. Products for which there are green standards include ceramic tiles, wall paint, water closets, sheet steel, PVC pipe, Portland cement, gypsum, and sheet glass.
“It is such a great honor for PT IAPMO Group Indonesia to be appointed as a Verification Body for Green Label Indonesia,” said Shirley Dewi, Senior Vice President of PT IAPMO Group Indonesia. “We look forward to a fruitful and lasting partnership with Green Product Council Indonesia in bringing green products to the marketplace.”
