One of the Sustainable Development Goals is sustainable development, and the private sector has a critical role in this endeavour. Corporate sustainability – defined as ‘the delivery of long-term value in economic, social and environmental terms’ – is the most important contribution that business can provide to sustainable development.
It is widely accepted that women’s empowerment yields strong economic returns and may be the most critical enabler to achieving a wide range of sustainable development and other objectives. Representing 49.5% of world population, women represent untapped potential resources for accelerating the economic growth. They are underrepresented in many sectors, including in employment and business opportunities. It has been reported that the global workforce participation rate of women still averages 50% of the population and the trend is declining over the years for age 15 to 24 years, which is likely linked to expanding educational opportunities at the secondary and tertiary levels.
Business, along with other actors, has a key role to play in advancing gender equality across the workplace, marketplace and community.
Indonesia is a member of the G-20 major economies and its economy is the largest in Southeast Asia. Approximately 52% of the population lives in rural areas. Although challenges remain in terms of efficiency and outreach, over the years, Indonesia has improved some key areas related to gender inequality, such as health and education, opportunities, voice and agency, and stipulating the necessary legislation for gender mainstreaming.
According to World Bank’ data, female labour force participation in the formal market was 49% in 2015, while male participation reached 83%. Although Indonesia has achieved good economic growth (averaged 5.35% from 2000 until 2016), to maintain this growth and take more of its people out of poverty, Indonesia must increase workforce participation.
