Bridge to Sustainability

Back in the “good old days” of natural resource exploitation, it was enough to secure investment capital, make the necessary payments to various government officials and commence operations. For good or ill, those days are quickly coming to an end. Companies currently involved in plantation, forestry, mining and fishery industries cannot avoid the new paradigm of international market sustainability standards and corporate responsibility. In recognition of global and local demands, many resource-rich developing nations, including Indonesia, are rapidly maturing towards legal system reforms requiring companies to implement sustainable standards in natural resource exploitation.
However, the road to sustainability contains many obstacles, both apparent and unseen, that can cause costly complications in the effort to bring business operations into compliance within the current standards. Additionally, there are currently gaps between international sustainability standards and the rapidly evolving natural resources and social reforms in Indonesian legislation. Given such complications, it is vital that corporations investing in business operations in Indonesia retain a legal services team to form a bridge between compliance with sustainability standards, corporate-social responsibility and the need for long-term profitability. The unique knowledge base and on the ground experience found at AsM Law Offices is perfectly suited to help existing and new business operations gain a solid footing and ensure long-term success in Indonesia.
In order to efficiently facilitate the needs of our clients, AsM Law Offices is now offering our “Bridge to Sustainability” services package. This is a step-by-step combination of services, specifically designed for AsM clients, to efficiently ensure operational compliance with sustainability standards and local regulations, while maintaining a highly positive corporate image and limiting exposure to unforeseen liabilities.
