The Co-founder and Chief Green Officer of Avani Eco, Kevin Kumala, was awarded the title Environmental Entrepreneur for the Scientific and Technological Development category by the Junior Chamber International (JCI) during the “Ten Outstanding Young Person Award (TOYP)” event held on Saturday, August 26, 2017 at Hotel Sheraton, Gandaria City Mall, Kebayoran, Jakarta.
“It was an honor to represent Indonesia as one of the Ten Outstanding Young Person for Environmental Entrepreneur. As the United Nations also plays a role in the event, I hope that UN, especially UNEP, will continue to support Avani in building a greener world,” said Kevin. He also expressed his gratitude and appreciation to his best friend, Gupta Sitorus who is the chief marketing officer of Avani, also to his family and parents, spiritual mentors, and above all else, to God who has turned what seemed to be an impossibility into a reality.
Kevin was humbled that he was able to share the stage with other young Indonesians in their respected fields, promoting Indonesia to the global audience.
