Why environment is important issues?
As Indonesian, maybe environment is the least priority issues in our life. Lets start with hygene. We eat next to dusty road, with unwell processed food, using dirty water. We are commute in very crowded train, in a deadlock traffic jam. We live in area where flooding comes not only around the navigation road, but also flooding housing and residential. Do you think we care about environment?
It remind me about the job I took in the past on risk management. Facing the fierce business competition, do you think people will use policy and procedure, use the risk management principles? do companies even care about compliance?
Well to answer that two related question. In my opinion, I will said that the most important thing is not the “How to” make people care about our issues -whether its environment or risk management. The most important things is to find a company that need a compliance, to find the people that care about environment.
So risk management is not bad concept, or environment is not a useless word. That word is only useful until we find the right audience. For example like this, when US Embassy donate Air Quality Monitoring or like this, when Integrity Watch is used to monitor the conflict of interest for politician.
