“an industry will be strong only when it is developed in tandem with social and environmental responsibility”.

Thailand

Banpu’s social responsibility programs in Thailand are focused on community development with regard to vocational skills, education, youth, and the environment. Various forms of “learning” are adopted to drive our CSR programs, as we believe that “learning” leads to sustainable development and positive change. Among these CSR programs are:



Indonesia

The subsidiary of BANPU in Indonesia, PT Indo Tambang Raya Megah Tbk (ITM) has a strong commitment to conduct its business in the most socially and environmentally responsible manners. This commitment has become one of the key passions of all the internal components of the Company.
 
To turn that commitment into activities that directly improve the company’s performance, ITM adopted guidance of ISO26000 on Social Responsibility and AA1000 on Stakeholder Engagement Standard in developing its social responsibility implementation roadmap and blueprint for a comprehensive plan and clear work programs.
ITM has implemented sustainable Community Development (CD) programs for the communities surrounding ITM mining sites, and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programs for the national level. These programs are the realization of the Company’s commitment to share and mutually empower existing potentials, through focuses on economic, educational, socio-cultural, health, environmental and infrastructure development.
 
The CSR program ‘ITM for Education’ was launched in 2008 to encourage the improvement of education quality in Indonesia. Divided into three sub-programs ‘Mining for Children’, ‘Volunteer Action’ and ‘Smart Teaching’, ITM for Education is designed to develop young children and elementary school students, assist educational volunteers, and empower teachers through a holistic approach towards capacity building.
