June 10, 2012. 'Warrior
of the Earth' is an appropriate title to be given to winners of the Indonesia
Green Awards (IGA) 2012 because each of them deserved it and had proven

River, and Erni Suhaina, a recycled product business owner, are few of today's
warriors of the earth who truly dedicate themselves in the noble efforts to

practicing green banking in it business and operations. The company deserved
the award for its compliance with the policy of extending loans only to
entities showing high regards of the environment. Internally, CIMB Niaga has
successfully reduced its consumption of energy and water, recovered
still-usable items and recycled wastes. The award was handed by M.S. Hidayat,
Indonesian Minister of Industry, to Gatot Subagio.

CSR programs have been properly run and in trying to improve them.
Helping businesses dealing with the issue, an
award-presentation event has been organized to appreciate companies striving
hard to engage in sustainable development practices. Early in 2012, CIMB Niaga
published its first sustainability report: Sustainable Development Report 2011.
In recognition of this effort, the National Center for Sustainability Reporting
(NCSR) presented the bank with the Indonesia Sustainability Reporting Award
(ISRA) for Commendation for the First Time Sustainability Report category,
handed by Mr. Sarwono Kusumaatmadja to Mr. Harsya Denny Suryo, CIMB Niaga's
Head of Corporate Affairs, at Hotel Mulia, Senayan, Jakarta.
The first meaningful step for CIMB Niaga, the publication
of the report is expected to improve its CSR projects in the future.
