Filantropi dan Bisnis Indonesia untuk SDGs (Philanthropy and Business Platform for SDGs) also known as FBI4SDGs was officially launched on Friday, July 27th, 2018 at the APINDO Building, Permata Kuningan, Jakarta, with the declared motto of “No one left behind: Partnership to Optimize Roles and Engagement of Indonesian Philanthropy and Business Sector in Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals”. Under the auspices of this Platform, philanthropic and business stakeholders came together and pledged to collaborate on supporting the implementation and achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
In his speech, Mr. Bambang Brodjonegoro, Minister of National Development Planning, emphasized that implementing SGDs also means implementing national development and simultaneously fulfilling global commitment.
FBI4SDGs was initially founded by Perhimpunan Filantropi Indonesia (PFI), Indonesia Business Council for Sustainable Development (IBSCD), Indonesia Global Compact Network (IGCN), and Kamar Dagang Indonesia (Kadin). Currently, the Platform’s membership comprises 14 associations representing about 500 Indonesian foundations and corporations.
Based on their particular strengths and functions, these associations were divided into six working groups, focusing their work on tools development, best practices, converting Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) activities into SDG activities, awareness building and socialization, implementing the activities at regional and district levels, and advocacy and regulation.
The partners of the FBI4SDGs Platform include Filantropi Indonesia - Indonesian Philanthropy Association (FI), UN Global Compact – Indonesian Network (IGCN), Partnership for Sustainable Community (CCPHI), Indonesian Chamber of Commerce (KADIN), Indonesian Business Coalition for Sustainable Development (IBCSD), Indonesian CSR Society (ICSRS), Scaling Up Nutrition Movement (SUN Movement), Corporate Forum for Community Development (CFCD), Partnership for Indonesian Sustainable Agriculture (PISAgro), Indonesian Business Link (IBL) and the Association of State Owned Business.
The SDG Philanthropy Platform is a global and national facilitator that helps optimize resources and efforts to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by enabling effective collaboration with the broader ecosystem.
