Is Green Network Asia a for-profit or non-profit entity?

Green Network Asia is a privately held for-profit organization. Our legal name is PT Bumi Manusia Berkelanjutan.

To learn more about why we decided to do business instead of non-profit, read our #LetterfromtheFounder “Moving Purpose into Action by Creating Shared Value”.

Regarding how we position “profit” relative to the “social and environmental impact” of our organization, here is how we consciously measure our standing position and impact focus in the B Impact Assessment:

“We treat our social and environmental impact as a primary measure of success for our business and prioritize it even in cases where it may not drive profitability”

While creating shared value internally in our organization, we channel philanthropy with our partners and communities through Layanibumi, a not-for-profit foundation dedicated to serving people at the bottom of the pyramid and the planet. We power the organization by providing comprehensive assistance to support its overall operations. Please note that Layanibumi’s website has not been available online at this time.

Can I propose a media partnership with Green Network Asia to cover my event?

Yes, you can!

A media partnership is considered an “in-kind partnership”, meaning it is a reciprocal business relationship and not a charity, even though the partnership is unpaid financially.

For this type of partnership, we will request a “give back” initiative from your side in exchange for our support of your event, usually through “brand awareness support”, to ensure your community and more people know about our organization and benefit from our work to support their life, work, and career. All parties should agree upon the technical details of a media partnership in an MoU.

Generally, we are happy to support initiatives that align with our mission. However, it is our absolute discretion whether or not to accept your media partnership proposal based on our independent editorial judgment and management situations.

Our independent editorial judgment may include the following considerations: 1) the relevance and usefulness of the coverage to our audience, 2) the benefit of the coverage for the greater good and the interest of the general public, and 3) the compatibility of your event to our organization’s purpose and mission.

Our management situations may include considerations such as 1) our current team’s workload and 2) our team’s availability in terms of time and energy.

Please send your media partnership proposal via email: [email protected] cc [email protected]
