CSRThe Satu Hati (One Heart) project in Indonesia

To give back to the local community in Indonesia, POCARI SWEAT manufacturer and distributor P.T. Amerta Indah Otsuka, has implemented a social action program based on three core pillars: Satu Hati Cerdaskan Bangsa (One Heart for Education), Satu Hati Peduli Lingkungan (One Heart for Environment), and Satu Hati Sehatkan Bangsa (One Heart for Health).

Education of the children who will forge the future

P.T. Amerta Indah Otsuka: Satu Hati Academy

The 2006 Yogyakarta earthquake caused extensive damage, including the destruction of many schools. To help the affected schools rebuild, P.T. Amerta Indah Otsuka donated funds and held a charity concert. The company called for public support for its activities and received assistance from both the media and the Indonesian government. It went on to develop the charity project Satu Hati Cerdaskan Bangsa (One Heart for Education) and began new fundraising activities. This time, the donations were used to supply schools throughout Indonesia with books, and in 2008, the company was able to raise enough funds to build an elementary school library. Since the start of these activities in 2007, and with the help of a local non-profit organization and the Ministry of Child Protection, the company has built 28 libraries and donated over 124,000 books.
The initiative, aimed at furthering children's education, is now expanding beyond the construction of libraries and the donation of books. At the Kejayan Plant, a POCARI SWEAT production plant in East Java, the company has set up a weekly Satu Hati Academy. After school, employees work in shifts to teach science and mathematics to local elementary school students.

Community-based environmental protection activities

Under the Satu Hati Peduli Lingkungan project (One Heart for Environment), the company carries out a range of activities including tree planting, coastal cleanup, and urban reforestation. In 2016, the company planted 12,500 pine trees on Mount Bromo, the source of the water used for POCARI SWEAT. The slopes of Mount Bromo, where the company's second plant — Kejayan Plant — is located, are the source of Pasuruan's water supply. To protect the Mount Bromo region and this precious water source, the company is carrying out these activities with the endorsement and support of the Pasuruan government as well as local municipalities and environmental organizations.

Health promotion activities

The Satu Hati Sehatkan Bangsa project (One Heart for Health) encompasses a range of activities for residents of the areas near the plant with the goal of reducing waste. Starting in 2016, these include trash collection and environmental education programs that teach the importance of recycling. Maintaining a clean and hygienic environment also promotes good public health. This initiative is part of the Clean and Healthy Lifestyle Program administered by the Indonesian Ministry of Health, and is being carried out in cooperation with the Indonesian government. Littering and its effect on the environment is a serious social problem in Indonesia. In its first year, 300 families received environmental education.

The company also supports a monthly mother and child clinic near the Sukabumi and Kejayan plants where POCARI SWEAT is produced. At the clinic, volunteer staff from a local health center provide basic care to mothers and infants.
