THE 4 PILLARS

Environment

To protect the environment, Octopus promotes waste segregation behavior in households and businesses by rewarding Users with discount vouchers from partners (Grab, Kopi Kenangan, and local small businesses).

Social

Waste collectors will have a clear job description with a real income, as well as clear identification credentials and access to banking & BPJS - the national security and health insurance.

Humanity

Octopus offers a program to educate waste collectors on the use of smartphones and the Octopus platform, while also educating the young generations of our waste collectors’ family.

Economy

Involving our waste collectors in the economic chain will strengthen our nation’s economic value by increasing the quality of our recycling industry and better product prices due to producer buyback.
