Jakarta. Industrial township developer Lippo Cikarang received an award from the West Java government in Bandung on Tuesday (14/03) for its contribution to the province's development last year.
Governor Ahmad Heryawan handed the award himself to Lippo Cikarang support service division head Eddy Triyanto.
According to a statement released on Friday, the company helped the province through its various corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities and Partnership and Environment Developmental Program (PKBL).
Lippo Cikarang's 2016 projects included "Lippo Cikarang Mengajar" ("Lippo Cikarang Teaches") to motivate elementary school children in the company's township to pursue their dreams.
The company also planted 1000 trees in the area.
Collaborating with the local government, Lippo Cikarang carried out free medical treatments for the residents Cicau and Serang villages in South Cikarang.
Lippo Cikarang president director Toto Bartholomeus said it was not the first time the company won a recognition for its CSR programs.
Last year, it won the Indonesia Green Award for preserving water resources with La Tofi School, an institution focused on nature conservation.
It also received two CSR Nusantara Awards for its efforts in improving people's health and protecting the environment.
This year, Lippo Cikarang has even more programs to offer. In January, it participated in the construction of two mosques in its Taman Lembah Hijau and Elysium Residence residential complexes.
