Problem: What problem is this initiative trying to address?

Essential oils sold in the market had a purity level about 70% for a long time. While the quality of essential oils is good if the purity level reaches 87%. However, the essential oils products in Gunung Condong has a purity level under the market standard, that is 60%. Production wastes are also not optimally managed yet, either solid waste or liquid waste. In addition, the production of essential oils in Gunung Condong is only done at the time of product demand. It makes the demand cannot be properly continued.

Solution Summary: What is the proposed solution? What do you see as its most promising aspects for creating shared value?

The form of implementation of SDG's program which will be applied in this project is aimed at the production of essential oils as the original product of Gunung Condong, Purworejo, Central Java through the concept of CP. CP will involve 4 elements of approach: Technology: as an effort to improve the quality and quantity of essential oils products and to manage the generated waste. Social as an effort to increase community participation in the production of essential oils. The basic concept on offer is from, by and for the community. Economy, as an effort to increase the market values and market opportunities of essential oils. Thus, the benefits will be more felt by the surrounding community, even it can further help to increase the original revenue of Purworejo, Central Java. Environment: as an effort to formulate waste management system in accordance with the characteristics of generated waste. This aspect will be collaborated with the aspects of the technology as described

Financial sustainability plan: How is this initiative financially supported? How will you ensure its financial sustainability long-term?

Funding is derived from the profits of essential oil production that has been underway. However, with revenue from Nestle can increase production capacity. we plan to establish an institution that can improve rural development. Lembaga Ekonomi Masyarakat Sejahtera (Prosperous Economic Society), abbreviated as LEM-Sejahtera, means to bind all of villagers from various backgrounds (livelihood, group, ethnic, religion, and political views) and program synergies from all institutions conducting development activities in village level. The LEM-Sejahtera farmer institution is a village economic institution formed from, by, and for rural communities with a local wisdom approach, with all villagers in collecting self-help power to utilize the available resources to improve the welfare.

Environment sustainability protection This concept become unique because it planned, built, and implemented by involving local society in GunungCondong. By using this concept hopefully can give some effective and efficient improvement since it project planned and developed then. This project emphasize the concept of from, by & to village

Founding story: Share a story about the "Aha!" moment that sparked the beginning of this initiative.

Gunung Condong is able to produce abundant pure cloves every year. These products have been partly used as essential oils. but people cannot get the benefits of agricultural products either pure or processed product. Thus, it’s necessary to evaluate quantity and quality of clove essential oil to increase the market value and welfare of society
