The Express Group adopts the concept of sustainable governance to ensure the optimal performance and the implementation of our corporate social responsibility as well as to fulfill our commitment, especially in providing added values, to all of the stakeholders. The concept of sustainable governance is in line with our philosophy that the Express Group is not solely about obtaining economic gains but it is also about improving the welfare and living standard of our drivers through the taxi ownership scheme.
As the member of the Indonesia Global Compact Network (IGCN), a network of organization which is part of the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), Express Group assumes the responsibility to maintain its sustainability of business and operation. It is achieved by professional conduct and the implementation of good corporate governance principles.
The implementation of sustainable governance includes ensuring there is no conflict of interest situation amongst the company’s officers, our internal commitment which puts drivers as the equal partner in the taxi ownership scheme, the implementation of Corporate Social Responsibility programs, efforts to preserve the environment and building up a continuing relationship with the stakeholders of the Express Group.
In 2008, the United Nation Development Program (UNDP) officially recognized the partnership scheme the Express Group that has been applying since 1997 as an example of effective partnership program which can help the UN program to eradicate poverty in the world. In its 2008 “Creating Value for All: Strategies for Doing Business with the Poor” report, the UNDP included the Express Group --the only local (Indonesian) business organization mentioned in the report-- as a case study where its business model has effectively engaged the underprivileged to improve their welfare.
