Responsible Financing

BCA is concerned about climate change risks and opportunities and supports the attainment of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). One of the ways to mitigate climate change risks is through the implementation of risk management and three lines of defense. On the other hand, BCA sees climate change opportunities that will result in the changes in types of financing that support climate change mitigation.

BCA supports financing for debtors who are concerned about social aspects, including the sustainability of Indonesian culture, as well as the environmental aspects, including preventing water crisis. By considering the environmental, social and governance (ESG) risks involved in each financing, BCA encourages debtors not to cause loss of biodiversity, deforestation, drought, pollution, violations of human rights and workers' rights. Indirectly, the policies in BCA also strive to prevent deforestation (no deforestation).

BCA monitors and encourages debtors in particular industries, to participate in the Company Performance Rating Program on Environmental Management (PROPER) initiated by the Government of Indonesia and also to obtain social-environmental certifications. Some of the certifications are the Indonesian Sustainable Palm Oil (ISPO) and the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) Certification for palm oil companies, and also the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Certification for timber or forest management companies. Other socio-environmental certifications that are monitored by BCA and to be owned by the debtors are the International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC), the UTZ Certification for coffee and cocoa products, BONSUCRO Certification for sugar products, and the Green Building Certification for building constructions.

BCA is committed to developing its portfolio based on sustainable finance business categories (KKUB) or KKUB portfolio, or sustainable finance portfolio following the Financial Services Authority Regulation No.51 / POJK.03 / 2017. Development of the portfolio is also a continuation of BCA's participation in First Movers, which was a collegial initiative of several banks to start adopting sustainable finance in 2015.

The Corporate Banking, Transaction & Finance Group, the Commercial & SME Business Division, and the Credit Risk Analysis Group manage social and environmental financing under the supervision of the Corporate Banking Director, the SME & Commercial Banking Director, and the Credit & Legal Director.

As of December 31, 2020, BCA has disbursed KKUB loans of Rp127.0 trillion, with a growth of 1.5% YoY. That financing portfolio consists of Rp49.8 trillion non-MSME KKUB loans and Rp77.2 trillion MSMEs KKUB loans. The total financing of KKUB reached 21.1% of BCA's total financing as of 31 December 2020. KKUB's loan portfolio in 2020 for Non-MSMEs increased by 14.0%, and for MSMEs, it decrease by 5,2%.

KKUB portfolio for environmental-friendly infrastructure financing, in 2020, reached 22.9% of total infrastructure financing loans, an increase of 2.7% compared to that of 2019. The financing includes, among others, electricity railways, telecommunications towers, airports and ports, and water & sanitation infrastructures. It is expected that the financing will contribute to the improvement of the national economy while simultaneously actualizing SDGs and creating low carbon economic development, as aspired by the Indonesian people at large.

Service Quality

BCA recognizes the importance of maintaining customer trust on service quality for the company's sustainability. For that reason, BCA provides the latest banking solutions following the needs and demands of customers. BCA's various products and services are also designed to create comfort, safety, and customer satisfaction.

BCA banking solutions innovation and development is carried out consistently and sustainably. In developing banking solutions, BCA pays attention to and complies with the existing regulations. Prior to the launch, the Compliance Unit evaluated all new BCA product solutions.

BCA socializes and educates customers about its products and services through various marketing communication channels. One of them is through social media, including Instagram @GoodLifeBCA, Twitter @XpresiBCA, Line @BankBCA. BCA conducts marketing communications based on the advertising code of ethics.

Every year, BCA collaborates with independent parties to conduct customer satisfaction surveys. Indirectly, the survey is part of communication and engagement means as well as for maintaining good relationships with customers as one of BCA's main stakeholders. The results of the customer engagement (CE) survey showed the customer satisfaction index in 2020 was 4.67 on a scale of 1 to 5 and the branch service quality (BSQ) survey results got 4.87 on a scale of 1 to 5.

Technology Development and Digitalization

In line with digitalization and information technology development, digital banking solutions are in great demand by the customers. BCA keeps innovating consistently to meet customer needs and demands for digital banking solutions.

A variety of BCA digital banking solutions, such as internet banking and mobile banking, complement the branch office network and automated teller machines (ATMs), to provide a convenient banking service to customers and the public at large. BCA continues to conduct digital transformation, including developing financial technology potentials that provide digital-based banking services.

The frequency of digital banking transactions shows continuous growth from year to year. Throughout 2020, there were 3,264 million banking transactions made through internet banking (an increase of 30.1% YoY) and 6,321 million banking transactions made through mobile banking (an increase of 64.3% YoY). Transactions through branch offices were only 120 million, continuing to decline over the past three years.

The comparison of the frequency of transactions or the use of BCA banking solutions, as of December 2020, showed that around 82,9% of transactions were carried out through internet banking and mobile banking, about 1% were carried out at branch offices, and the rest through ATMs.

Indirectly, digital-based banking services can increase customer productivity. Transactions can be performed anytime and anywhere without having to spend a lot of time and resources visiting the nearest BCA branches.

BCA gradually replaces conventional ATMs with Cash Recycling Machines (CRM) that can serve cash withdrawals as well as deposits, thus it supports money management operations. In 2020, the number of CRM increased by 2,098 machines compared to that of 2019 up to 9.038 machines. CRM replenishment is on average four times per machine in a month, which is relatively lower than conventional ATMs which require an average of eleven times per machine. It is expected that the initiative will be part of BCA's commitment to supporting carbon emissions reduction.

In 2019, BCA's new breakthrough in digital banking is an online account opening service via mobile banking. Millions of online account opening transactions were recorded. This digital service indirectly reduces customer visits to branches and carbon emissions.

In the context of environmental preservation, digital banking solutions can reduce paper usage. Although digital services must be supported by a data center that requires relatively large amounts of energy, BCA considers that there has been a decrease in energy from the reduction of customer trips to the nearest BCA branches or ATMs, especially in large cities with high traffic densities.

Privacy Customers Data Security and Privacy Protection

As an excellent banking institution, BCA is committed to maintaining public trust by ensuring the security of data, transactions, and customer funds. Customer information is confidential and cannot be disclosed to other parties; unless following the order of law and regulation.

The protection and confidentiality of customer data is the joint responsibility of all BCA people. This is instilled in each BCA individual through the banker's code of ethics and the Collective Labor Agreement (PKB).

The confidentiality and data security policies of BCA customers are outlined in BCA's internal policies. In operational activities, BCA is concerned to mitigating customer data security and privacy risks on all financial service platforms, including digital banking solutions. BCA continuously improves the information technology (IT) security system to anticipate the threat of cyber-crime and prevent mistreatments or fraud.
