Gojek Pledges to Achieve Zero Emissions, Zero Waste & Zero Barriers by 2030 in First Annual Sustainability Report
Report is the first to be compiled by a Southeast Asian Internet company in alignment with international standards (GRI and SASB)
JAKARTA, INDONESIA - Media OutReach - 30 April 2021 - As part of its sustainability mission to create positive impact and long-term value for people and the planet, Gojek, Southeast Asia's leading mobile on demand services and payments platform, today announced commitments to Three Zeros: Zero Emissions, Zero Waste and Zero Barriers, to be achieved by 2030. Gojek unveiled these pledges in its first annual Sustainability Report, which detailed its progress to date and way forward in implementing thorough environmental, social and governance (ESG) practices.
Focusing on where the company can make the biggest impact for all of its stakeholders in line with pressing environmental and social issues, Gojek's approach will be structured around three specific areas: environmental sustainability (GoGreener) to achieve Zero Emissions and Zero Waste, as well as socio-economic progress (GoForward) and equality and inclusion (GoTogether) to achieve Zero Barriers.
Gojek's ESG report is the first to be compiled by a Southeast Asian Internet company in alignment with international standards. Select disclosures relating to the relevant material issues have been assured by PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) Indonesia. Gojek is leading the region's tech industry in integrating ESG best practices across its business and voluntarily disclosing its performance on material ESG issues.
Kevin Aluwi, Co-CEO, Gojek, said, "We have always been a company that is focused on finding the intersection of what is good for society and company growth. It is part of our DNA and the reason people come to work at Gojek. As we've grown, it has become more important to develop a way to make sure we hold ourselves to account and are constantly pushing forward and leading the industry on issues that are so important to us and society as a whole. That's why we are scaling our efforts to embed environmental and social considerations into the very heart of our organization. In doing so, we hope to create lasting, impactful change for our communities, partners and the world we live in, ensuring we can live up to our mission for the long term."
Andre Soelistyo, Co-CEO, Gojek, added, "There is a pressing need for the private sector to take action and help address the most critical environmental and social issues that plague our planet and communities today. As Gojek continues to grow in size and strength, with millions relying on our platform daily, we have a responsibility to do so sustainably. Through the integration of industry-leading ESG practices, we are ensuring we do business better across our entire ecosystem, while paving the way for other companies in the region to do the same. These are issues that are of increasing importance to stakeholders everywhere and we are determined to exceed their expectations for the good of Indonesia, Southeast Asia and the rest of the world."
Gojek is already making significant strides towards its targets, which will be reviewed and disclosed annually:
Committed to conducting an annual inventory for scopes 1, 2 and 3 emissions, and waste accounting, to commence in 2021 Launched the GoGreener Carbon Offset in-app feature - the world's first for B2C carbon offsetting in the ride-hailing industry Commissioned feasibility studies and pilot projects to accelerate the adoption of EVs, with the ambition to transition to 100% EVs by 2030 Launched the GoTransit service to better integrate its first and last mile transportation with public transportation Joined the steering committee of the National Plastic Action Partnership for Indonesia, managed under the World Economic Forum's Global Plastic Action Partnership 13+ tons of single-use plastic waste prevented through a paid cutlery program (since August 2019); 6.3+ tons of single-use plastic waste collected through various pilot programs in 2019, with several new pilots commencing in 2021
Helped 530,000+ driver partners save on their daily expenses through the Swadaya program (benefits program for driver partners) Diversified income-earning opportunities for driver partners through collaboration with PromoGo and the launch of GoCek Launched the GoFood Partners Community (with over 54,000 merchant partners) to help hone business and digitization skills for micro and small businesses
Signed the UN's Women Empowerment Principles for advancing gender equality and committed to only hosting gender diverse panels for Gojek speaking events Established an employee-led Council to steward corporate diversity, equality and inclusion policies and programmes Developed processes and infrastructure for employees to launch Employee Resource Groups
The report embodies Gojek's commitment to supporting the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). To ensure greater accountability, the company is also forming a Sustainability Advisory Council, comprising impartial external experts from various organizations including UN Women, ASEAN Centre of Energy, University of Indonesia and more.
"With less than 10 years to achieve the SDGs, we have to act now. By using the best available science, aligning with global standards and accreditations and applying a data-driven approach to our methodology, we are ensuring our strategy is as robust, relevant and impactful as possible. We also know we cannot achieve this alone and will leverage our network of like-minded partners to accelerate our progress through innovative and transformative expertise and capabilities," said Tanah Sullivan, Group Head of Sustainability, Gojek.
Dr. Allinnettes Adigue, Head of the ASEAN Regional Hub of GRI, said: "Corporate sustainability is good for the people, planet and long-term profitability of a company because in the end, no one can do business in a dead planet. It is no longer a question of whether companies should report on their sustainability impact. Sustainability reporting is here to stay. It is now a question of whether what companies report are accurate and relevant, and clearly communicates their impact on the economy, environment and society. These issues matter to a wide range of stakeholders, not just the narrow interests of a few.
"GRI Standards, as the most widely used reporting standards in the world, is not just a reporting blueprint but more importantly, it provides organisations a global common language to set their sustainability goals and regularly measure, analyse and report on their progress. In turn, this allows them to continuously improve their sustainability performance. The GRI Standards encourages companies to focus on material topics that reflect their most significant sustainability impact through the use of quantitative data, narrative assessments and indicator-based systems."
Protecting livelihoods and sustaining the community amid COVID-19
Gojek also helped to minimise the impact of COVID-19 across its ecosystem, ensuring the health and safety of stakeholders, developing new products and services to meet changing needs and creating alternative income opportunities for merchants and driver partners. In 2020, Gojek founded the Anak Bangsa Bisa Foundation (YABB) to support its partners and the wider community affected by the pandemic, raising IDR 100 billion from senior leadership and GoTroops and IDR 20 billion from corporate donations and other donation programs.
Gojek also protected consumers and the wider community, leveraging the scale of its network to keep consumers up to date on health and safety guidelines as well as launching several app features and initiatives to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and support frontline workers.
About Gojek's Sustainability Report This is Gojek's first annual Sustainability Report, to disclose its performance on material ESG topics to all stakeholders. Following this year, the report will be published on an annual basis as part of the company's ongoing voluntary disclosure of ESG performance and related metrics.
This report has been externally assured by PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) and prepared in accordance with the GRI Standards as it represents the global best practice for sustainability reporting. Gojek has also applied two sector-specific reporting standards by SASB, 1. Internet Media and Services and 2. Road Transportation, to guide its disclosures on the financial materiality of sector-specific ESG issues.
More information about the different disclosures presented in the report and how they align to GRI and SASB standards can be found in pages 42 and 46 of the Sustainability Report.

Cairn Energy has sued India's flagship carrier Air India to enforce a $1.2 billion arbitration award that it won in a tax dispute against India, according to a U.S. District Court filing reviewed by Reuters. The move ratchets up pressure on India's government to pay the sum of $1.2 billion plus interest and costs that the British firm Cairn was awarded by an arbitration tribunal in December. The body ruled India breached an investment treaty with Britain and said New Delhi was liable to pay.
Woman in the Window, Amy Adams as Anna Fox Spoilers are ahead. Based on the best-selling thriller of the same name by A.J. Finn, The Woman In The Window attempts to answer the question: can a movie have too many twists? (The limit, apparently, does not exist.) However, fans of the novel might not be too surprised, as the Woman In The Window ending stays pretty close to that of the book. Anna Fox (Amy Adams) is agoraphobic. Her only connection to the outside world are her nightly phone calls with her estranged husband Ed (Anthony Mackie) and her daughter Olivia (Mariah Bozeman), and her brief interactions with David (Wyatt Russell), her tenant who lives in the basement. That is, until the mysterious Russell family moves in across the street. But it’s not until Anna witnesses Jane Russell (Julianne Moore) being stabbed to death, only for another Jane Russell (Jennifer Jason Leigh) to show up, alive and well, that things really take a turn. Is it all in her head? Or is there more to the Russell family than meets the eye? Meanwhile, Anna takes an interest in the Russell’s teenage son, Ethan (Fred Hechinger). As a child psychologist, she recognises his skittish behaviour as a sign that he might be abused, and her conviction only gets stronger when she sees how afraid he is of his overbearing father Alistair (Gary Oldman). Long story short: once Anna realises that she really did see a woman killed — the woman was not Jane Russell, but Ethan’s estranged birth mother — and that it wasn’t all a hallucination, she convinces herself that Alistair must have killed her. Now, here’s where fans of the book might get a little thrown off. In Finn’s original thriller, it’s Ethan who confirms that that the woman Anna saw was real, she just wasn’t Jane Russell. He also assures her that he’ll talk to his parents and get them to turn themselves in for her murder. In the film, it’s David who reveals the woman’s true identity. He had a one night stand with the birth mum, but let Anna believe she was hallucinating because he doesn’t want to get involved with the police. But the main difference between The Woman In The Window the movie and the book isn’t so much David’s involvement as it is the unravelling of Ethan and Anna’s relationship. In the book, when Ethan tells Anna about his birth mother, she is hopeful that he’ll be able to be free from his parents, that she’s helped him escape an abusive home. It’s not until later that Anna realises something is off with Ethan, and he attacks her. It turns out, Ethan killed his birth mother, and his parents have been covering it up. In the movie, the timeline is accelerated, with Ethan attacking right after David reveals the truth. After that, the movie follows the Woman in the Window‘s original ending pretty closely: Ethan tries to kill Anna, which forces her to run away to the rooftop, but she ends up besting him, pushing him off the roof to his death. As for how we’re supposed to feel about the Woman in the Window ending, director Joe Wright is hoping that it might inspire a liberation from fear. “I hope the audience have a sense of having had this nail-biting experience but feel a sense of release and relief at the end from fear,” he told Entertainment Weekly prior to the film’s release. Just as Anna is liberated from her fear of the outdoors (and of being murdered by a baby serial killer), we too are liberated from the fear that we might have to watch Amy Adams die on screen.

Estate 2021, riaprono le spiagge. Alcune regioni sono già partite nelle scorse settimane e da oggi nel Lazio ripartono gli stabilimenti a Ostia, Fiumicino, Gaeta e Fondi, sempre nel rispetto delle regole e delle misure anti Covid. Dieci metri quadri per ogni ombrellone in spiaggia, un addetto alla sorveglianza delle spiagge libere. No allo sport di gruppo in spiaggia, sì ai racchettoni. Sono alcuni dei punti fissati nelle linee guida. 'Assicurare un distanziamento tra gli ombrelloni (o altri sistemi di ombreggio) in modo da garantire una superficie di almeno 10 m2 per ogni ombrellone, indipendentemente dalla modalità di allestimento della spiaggia (per file orizzontali o a rombo)", si legge. ''Predisporre una adeguata informazione sulle misure di prevenzione da rispettare, comprensibile anche per i clienti di altra nazionalità. Si promuove, a tal proposito, l’accompagnamento all’ombrellone da parte di personale dello stabilimento adeguatamente preparato (steward di spiaggia) che illustri ai clienti le misure di prevenzione da rispettare'', prevedono ancora le linee guida delle Regioni, che hanno inserito nel documento i protocolli che riguarderanno le attività turistiche, i congressi e i grandi eventi fieristici. ''Per quanto riguarda le spiagge libere, si ribadisce l’importanza dell’informazione e della responsabilizzazione individuale da parte degli avventori nell’adozione di comportamenti rispettosi delle misure di prevenzione. Al fine di assicurare il rispetto della distanza di sicurezza di almeno 1 metro tra le persone e gli interventi di pulizia e disinfezione dei servizi eventualmente presenti si suggerisce la presenza di un addetto alla sorveglianza. Anche il posizionamento degli ombrelloni dovrà rispettare le indicazioni sopra riportate''. Infine, "è da vietare la pratica di attività ludico-sportive di gruppo che possono dar luogo ad assembramenti''. ''Gli sport individuali che si svolgono abitualmente in spiaggia (es. racchettoni) o in acqua (es. nuoto, surf, windsurf, kitesurf) possono essere regolarmente praticati, nel rispetto delle misure di distanziamento interpersonale - spiega il documento - Diversamente, per gli sport di squadra (es. beach-volley, beach-soccer) sarà necessario rispettare le disposizioni delle istituzioni competenti''.
Prisons are to go green by generating their energy from solar panels and creating mini-nature reserves to promote biodiversity. The next generation of prisons - starting with four to be built over the next six years - will use heat pumps, energy efficient lighting and thousands of solar panels to cut fuel bills by half and carbon emissions by at least 85 per cent compared with current designs. They will also have habitats for wildlife cultivated at each prison to promote biodiversity and ensure the local ecology is stronger than when before construction began. The move is part of the Government’s drive to make Britain net-zero for carbon emissions by 2050. Robert Buckland, the Justice Secretary, said: “Our ambitious approach offers a unique opportunity to build back a safer and greener prison system. “New jails will use new green technologies and modern methods of construction to ensure our prisons cut carbon emissions as well as reoffending.” Two “first generation” green prisons are already under construction using recycled materials and incorporating green energy sources: HMP Five Wells in Wellingborough, Northamptonshire, and Glen Parva in Leicestershire. The four “second generation” to be constructed over the next six years will use an all-electric design that eliminates the need for gas boilers, meaning they will produce net-zero emissions when the National Grid decarbonises. During construction, 40,000 tonnes of carbon will be prevented by using recycled concrete and steel. The four are a new jail will be built next to HMP Full Sutton, in East Yorkshire, three at yet-to-be-confirmed sites in the south east and north west of England. Some £15 million is also being invested in existing prisons, many built in the Victorian era. Solar panels are being installed at 16 sites to meet 20 per cent of their power demand - bringing the total number of solar panels across the estate to over 20,000. More than 200 electric vehicle charging points are also being installed across 40 prisons. The developments are part of the Government’s £4 billion programme to create 18,000 additional prison places that boost rehabilitation and cut reoffending. The environmentally friendly drive comes on top of more than £12 billion green investment to help the Government reach its net zero carbon emission target by 2050. This will include hydrogen and carbon capture technology, greener homes, electric vehicle charging infrastructure, walking and cycling infrastructure, flood defences and backing offshore wind to power every UK home by 2030. The UK was the first major economy to legislate to have a net zero target. It is also committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by at least 68 per cent compared to 1990 levels by 2030 - the highest reduction target by a major economy to date.
"La bici a pedalata assistita è una grande invenzione, perché anche senza allenamento ti diverti, puoi andare con gli amici o seguirli dove non potresti". Non lo dice uno qualunque ma nientemeno che Francesco Moser, uomo dal palmarès sconfinato, soprannominato Campione dei campioni o lo Sceriffo, e oggi produttore di vino ma mai sazio di bici, tanto da indossare nuovamente la tutina, stavolta coni colori della Mediolanum, per capitanare la squadra in blu alla settima tappa del Giro E, quasi 88 km tra Crecchio e Termoli sullo stesso percorso del Giro d'Italia ma in bici "elettrica". Incontriamo Moser alla fine della gara destinata agli amatori, resa indimenticabile proprio dal passaggio dei ciclisti normali sulla strada di quelli professionisti, passaggio tra le ali di folla compreso e finalmente il traguardo, lo stesso della Corsa Rosa. Tappa, neanche a dirlo, vinta in volata da Moser prima di quella di Caleb Ewan un paio d'ore dopo. "Non finisco di ripeterlo: questo tipo di bicicletta è una grande invenzione e permette a tutti di andare in giro. C'è gente che mi vede e mi dice "mi hai deluso": io li mando a quel paese, e gli dico sempre 'tu fai quello che vuoi, io faccio come mi pare. Ho fatto più di 700.000 km in bici, e insomma: fatica ne ho fatto abbastanza". Non manca però l'avvertimento da Sceriffo: "con una bici elettrica chi non è allenato può fare anche delle notevoli salite, ma come con le altre bici deve stare attento alle discese perché tanta gente che non è mai andata in bici va su. Poi in discesa, col peso, vai anche a 60-70 all'ora, e quello bisogna saperlo fare altrimenti vai contro un muro o per terra e insomma, non è piacevole". "La bici, elettrica o normale, non ha nessuna controindicazione all'uso -prosegue Moser conversando con l'Adnkronos-, per nessuno, ma bisogna stare attenti a non cadere, l'asfalto è duro per tutti. E stare attenti se ti viene addosso una macchina: spesso gli automobilisti non guardano i ciclisti, o non calcolano le distanze o chi guida guarda il telefono. Succedono troppi incidenti e il ciclista deve stare attento perché se prende una macchinata se la tiene anche se ha ragione". "La bici allarga gli orizzonti. Ha ragione Moser a dire che la bici elettrica è una grande invenzione perchè le persone hanno libertà di movimento e di riscoperta del territorio". Lo dice, nella stessa occasione, il direttore dell'Enit Giovanni Bastianelli. L'Agenzia nazionale del turismo partecipa con una propria squadra al Giro E. "Siamo entusiasti di toccare con il Giro e Enit i luoghi suggestivi del Sud Italia. Per la sua natura itinerante il ciclismo è lo sport, che più di ogni altro, riesce a raccontare le bellezze dei territori, arrivando nelle case e nei cuori delle persone, e piace soprattutto agli stranieri: il 61 per cento dei cicloturisti che percorrono l’Italia viene dall’estero. Cresce l’attrattività del turismo sportivo italiano sui mercati esteri e in tempi pre Covid segnava un +19,7% pari a 4 milioni di pernottamenti e un + 9,4% equivalenti a 484 milioni di euro di spesa". La stessa opinione di Moser, segnalano dall'Enit, è stata espressa anche dalla quasi totalità di coloro che stanno partecipando al Giro elettrico nelle decine di interviste su Visit Italy web Radio, la radio istituzionale dell’ Italia inaugurata da qualche giorno da Enit con 28 sedi nel mondo e web radio ufficiale del giro d’ Italia.
Social media has formally written the recipe for a hot girl summer: being vaxxed and waxed. But while you're making preparations to return "outside," don't overlook the hairstyle celebrities are springing for as we move toward some semblance of normal (whatever that means).Stars on the 'gram have been showing off fresh haircuts, proving that a sharp bob is the icing on top of a summer look. "Bobs are on fire right now because they are easy and stylish," celebrity stylist Larry Sims says. "A great bob cut can go from super relaxed to super edgy quickly, which is why I love them."Regina King, one of Sims' A-list clients, stole the show at the 2021 Academy Awards with a razor-sharp angular cut that made a strong case for blunt ends. Meagan Good's newest chop also made the rounds on social media as the ideal wispy style for the season. Ahead, we rounded up some of our favourite looks, and all signs are pointing to a real hot bob summer.At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission. Meagan GoodIf you were one of the 678,000 double-tapping (and staring) at this mirror snap of Good, you already know: Aside from the actress being stunning per usual, it was her haircut that really got our attention. Hairstylist Jasmine Ashley is responsible for Good's chop, which sits right above her chin. The side-parted style has the perfect amount of blunt and body, and was co-signed by stars in the comments, who credited Good as their new hair inspo. "Makes me miss my short hair," Christina Milian wrote. "I love this look," Good's longtime hair guru Dr. Kari Williams commented. Halle BerryHalle Berry's Oscars bob left the internet divided, but confirmed that a bold short cut is sure to turn heads. Sara Seward took a dramatic angular approach to the style, making Berry's hair tapered towards the back, longer along her cheeks, and topped off with a wispy baby fringe.Regina KingSims got his client's bob so sleek for the Oscars using Flawless by Gabrielle Union Shine Enhancing Heat Protection Spray and Blow Dry Cream. Before cutting, he flat ironed in small sections to create a straight canvas. "Depending on the bob, I’ll cut bluntly or notch cut for a softer finish," he says. To finish King's style, Sims smoothed flyaways with the Flawless By Gabrielle Union Restoring Exotic Oil Treatment. Do you see that shine?Simone BilesLast summer, Simone Biles made a strong case for a fresh bob and silk press, and the service is still a popular choice for the gymnast. Biles posed with a shoulder-grazing cut with choppy ends that'll also look cute styled in loose waves.Hunter SchaferFlipped-out '70's hair isn't limited to longer styles — take a page from Hunter Schafer's book and blow the ends of your chin-length bob outwards for a retro look.Niecy NashThis subtly waved cut on Niecy Nash erased any doubts we had about shedding a few inches. Ray Christopher was responsible for the actress's look, which is slightly shorter in the back and gets longer and more chiselled towards her chin. Tiffany HaddishChristopher also hooked up Tiffany Haddish's icy blonde wig for an Ellen Show appearance with an off-centre parting and slight bends for dimension.Like what you see?

Shoppers have flocked to the last remaining Debenhams stores ahead of their closure on Saturday. The last 28 stores will close for good today more than 240 years after the department store first began trading.
Doctors are predicting that Netherlands defender Daley Blind will recover from injury and be ready for the European Championship, coach Frank de Boer said. The 31-year-old was included on Friday in a provisional squad that De Boer named for the tournament despite not playing since March, when he hurt both his ankle and knee in a World Cup qualifying win over Gibraltar. Blind had surgery to repair torn ankle ligaments, ruling him out of the rest of the Dutch league season, but is in line for a return next month.
