The sample result was determined by the purposive sampling of about 225 customers in Jakarta and its surrounding areas. Both programs succeeded simultaneously, helped with the building of a green corporate image, which shows the green marketing implementation, its marketing strategy and its corporate social responsibility program which is highly beneficial and memorable to the community. Findings: The research was conducted within the available region and a limited sample from manufacturing firms to make it a little bit less unspecific to findings. More consumers and communities should be invited to care for the environment.
