On 28th September 2017, BINUS UNIVERSITY hosted the 2017 Annual Most Valued Business Indonesia (MVB) Conference at its FX campus in Jakarta. The MVB is an independent organisation that provides a platform to promote companies that undertake corporate sustainability practices within their respective industries. This year’s event was themed, ‘Is Indonesia on the Road to Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability?’ and featured presentations and seminars from Mr Moazzam Malik as the Ambassador of the United Kingdom to Indonesia; Mr Alistair Chairs as Chairman of the MVB; Mr Kevin Kumala as Co-Founder of AVANI; Mr Daniel Mananta as the creator of the Damn! I Love Indonesia brand; as well as prominent NGOs and multinational companies.
The conference showcased companies that have demonstrated the highest critical standards in implementing good business practices such as through ethical employment, corporate sustainability, environmental friendliness, and good corporate values, among many others: through these important aspects, companies can try to ensure they are executing the most responsible business practices. The conference also served as a forum to exchange information and ideas on how businesses can convey their ethical business strategies to consumers and to better collaborate with stakeholders to improve overall efficiency.
In hosting the MVB conference, BINUS UNIVERSITY demonstrated its ability to identify partnerships that can further support its mission to produce graduates seeking proficiency in business management capabilities and thus cater to growing consumer preferences for socially responsible businesses in Indonesia.
