The Bangka Goes Green (BGG) movement was formed in 2007 to transform spoilt land, land formerly used for tin-mining exploitation with ecological significance, into a botanical garden, the Bangka Botanical Garden (BBG). It protects local habitats and restores the natural ecosystem. The establishment of the BBG reflects a credible corporate social responsibility model in Indonesia that also improves the city's image. It has been recognized at the local, national and international level. BGG consists mostly of individuals within the business sector who are committed to strong leadership.
