Sobat Bengok, in running the business, of course, our main goal couldn’t be separated from gaining profit. However, nowadays running a business is not only merely for gaining profit, but also has a role in sustainable development or often called SDG’s which stands for Sustainable Development Goals.
What is SDG’s?
Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a global action plan agreed upon by world leaders, including Indonesia, to end poverty, reduce inequality and protect the environment.
The SDGs agenda was originally inaugurated by the United Nations in New York City on 25-27 September 2015 right after the previous campaign for the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) ended. The SDGs contain 17 Goals and 169 Targets that are expected to be achieved by 2030.

1. No Poverty

These 17 popular goals are usually included in activities or actions that bring benefits. Bengok Craft is one of the business which participated in supporting the SDGs 2030 agenda.
Some of the goals that have been implemented including the welfare of the community and economic growth because Bengok Craft empowers the people around Rawa Pening by creating crafts that can be sold at high value so that it can improve the standard of living of the community. In addition, innovation also becomes our value in Bengok Craft because water hyacinth is processed into various crafts that can be said to be out of the box. Another goal that is achieved is in terms of the environment. Bengok Craft transforms water hyacinth which is usually only weeds around the Rawa Pening into an eco-friendly craft because it uses natural materials, so it is hoped that it can reduce the use of non-recyclable waste which can accelerate climate change. Let’s support Bengok Craft in Sustainable Development. By adopting handicrafts from Bengok Craft, you have participated in community development and natural preservation.
