The challenges in building sustainability of mining business management, are manifested by the Company in the Corporate Social Responsibility Master Plan (CSR Master Plan) of ANTAM. These plans are focused on social development performance which is directly monitored by Directorate of General Affairs and CSR. There are two strategies in this master plan that divide all CSR activities like two sides of the same coin. On one side, the strategies are carried out to fulfill legal obligations toward stakeholders. This encourages the Company as an SOE to manage both positive and negative impacts of the business operations, in accordance with the Government regulation, SOE Minister Regulation No 05/MBU/2007. In addition, ANTAM CSR activities also refer to ISO 26000 principles. On the other side, the strategy of CSR activities is realized by enforcing stakeholder inclusivity principle and community development. The CSR activities are conducted to meet the stakeholders’ needs according to the Company’s ability, including respecting the community’s rights, identifying characteristic of community’s interaction, recognizing ‘work value’ in partnership and social investment to create added value for the society. All of these are summed up in the ANTAM CSR master plan to respond to the impacts of each stage of the Company’s activities, since the stage of exploration, construction and operations, to mine closure and post-mining.
