CULTURAL INTERACTION & HERITAGE

The identity of a nation, region, community or group lies in its history and cultural heritage. This is what makes a group or society unique as it reflects the rich and diverse creations of humankind. Cultural heritage highly benefits the local economy, particularly in one of the most touristic places in the world like Bali.

WASTE COMMITMENTS

Businesses committed to

NO SINGLE USE PLASTIC

By not using single use plastics, 165 Punch Members are minimizing by millions the amount of plastic ending up in the streets, in the rivers and in the ocean. 

Single use plastics are not biodegradable, they simply break down into micro particles that dramatically contaminate our environment, wildlife, potable water and human bodies. When disposable plastics degrade in the environment, they emit several greenhouse gases. When plastic is exposed to sunlight, it produces methane and ethylene, which have a detrimental effect on every living creature on Earth.

WASTE MANAGEMENT

By having a clear waste management plan in place with actions to reduce, separate and reuse / recycle waste, 190 Punch Members are not only minimizing the amount of waste in Bali; they are also leading the example to their employees and customers.

Managing waste correctly is important in reducing pollution and providing a healthy environment. In Bali, waste is being inappropriately dumped in the environment, streets, waterways, and beaches which create a massive pollution issue for the island. An urgent response to this issue is needed and responsible businesses can lead the way by providing transparency and education.

SUSTAINABLE PACKAGING

Sustainable packaging materials are designed to optimize both energy and materials. These packaging are sustainably sourced, manufactured using clean production practices and technologies.

CONSERVATION COMMITMENTS

Businesses committed to

ENERGY CONSERVATION

By using equipment and practices to conserve energy such as the use of solar power, LED lighting and sensors, 132 Punch Members are contributing to reduce the demand for carbon-intensive power plants which in turn benefits the environment by reducing carbon dioxide emissions.

As businesses improve their energy efficiency, they need less electricity and thus rely less on carbon-intensive power plants. Mining, logging and material extraction associated with the provision of fossil fuels destroy habitats on land and in the ocean. Human-induced air pollution is one of the main reasons that global biodiversity is disappearing at unprecedented levels.

Businesses committed to

WATER CONSERVATION

By using equipment and practices to conserve water such as the use of low-flow water systems, rainwater, filters and the maintenance of leaky faucets and pipes, 133 Punch Members are contributed to the well-being of the environment and their communities.

Every time we use water, it is exposed to pollutants and contaminants. That water returns to the environment where it can spread pollution and have a negative effect on the ecosystems. When ecosystems are damaged by pollution, both humans and wildlife are disrupted. Businesses that conserve water make a huge difference and lead by example.
