To support the implementation of ESG (Environment, Social and Governance), PTPN Group conducted a Social and Environmental Responsibility Program in Serangan Traditional Village, South Denpasar District, Denpasar City, Bali Province. This program involves the Guna Segara Fishermen Group, which consists of 25 people. In participating in preserving the marine ecosystem by reducing the risk of coral reef damage from overfishing activities, PTPN Group provided assistance for 1 Unit of Sea Catfish Cultivation Cages and 10 Coastal Nets.
This assistance is intended to cultivate caught fish so that it can have better economic value, help improve the economy of fishermen, and help catch small fish around the coast to be cultivated. It is hoped that this assistance can reduce damage to marine ecosystems by switching to fish farming as a form of sustainable marine, coastal and land cultivation development.
