As one of the efforts to increase environmental awareness and solidity among employees, PT Rekayasa Industri (Rekind) since the last 3 months has started developing hydroponic vegetable plants in their Home Office (HO) area. Evidence of the effort to raise awareness was marked by Pakcoy’s first harvesting activity using hydroponic media, which was centered in the RTO Field, Tuesday (30/11).
The first harvest of Pakcoy Hydroponics was symbolically carried out by the President Director of Rekind Triyani Utaminingsih, accompanied by the Director of Operations and Technology/Development Yusairi and SVP Corporate Secretary & Legal, Edy Sutrisman. It was also witnessed by a number of employees from several divisions at Rekind.
“Today is a special moment. When I see these plants thriving, I believe it can refresh my mind, especially when faced with a fairly hectic routine. Therefore, we are committed to continuing this program of activities, apart from being a form of our love for the environment, this program can also strengthen the solidity between all of us,” said Triyani Utaminingsih.
The basic idea of developing hydroponic plants at Rekind’s home office was directly stated by Triyani Utamingsih. The idea was based on his experience about 1.5 years ago when he participated in the Hydropinic Plant Harvest Festival in the area of RT03/01 Pengadegan, Pancoran, South Jakarta. At that time, in this activity, Rekind was developing an environmental development program through hydroponic plants. Through this activity, it is believed to be able to help the community, especially in increasing food security and opening up job opportunities for the community, especially those affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Rekind started developing plants that use the water medium about 3 months ago. The management and supervision is carried out by the Rekind team under the supervision of the Comdev & TJSL Division with Integrated Facility Services (IFS) Rekind. The result, can be enjoyed directly by all Rekind employees and their families at home. Plus the types of vegetables that will be planted are more diverse.
