Community Development and Empowerment Program (PPM) [203-2] [POJK51 F.23, F.25]

The Community Development and Empowerment Program (PPM) aims to improve the community’s ability, both individually and collectively, in order to have a better standard of living. The PPM Program Implementation is based on 3 (three) approaches:

  1. Partnership Approach: a program based on the intention to work together with all parties within the framework of equality, mutual trust, strengthening, and growth, as well as positive benefits for present and future generations.
  2. Balance Approach: The program shall be designed and implemented by prioritizing the balance of interests between parties, aspects, fields, resource allocation and growth, and development among program beneficiaries.
  3. Sustainable Approach: The program will be organized with the following steps:
  • Manage all resources using environmentally friendly technology;
  • Provide opportunities for all parties to grow and develop together on an ongoing basis;
  • Preserve the ecosystem function to supply, protect, and support natural resources for the life of present and future generations; and
  • Utilize procedures and systems-oriented towards ecosystem sustainability to ensure the continuity and integrity of life, both for present and future generations.

The ESDM Guidelines stipulate eight main aspects that must be managed in the PPM Master Plan. These aspects are similar to the Company’s community development and engagement programs. In accordance with the PPM implementation guidelines, the costs of community development and engagement programs under the PPM Master Plan are categorized as the Company's operational costs and included in the annual Work Plan and Budget (RKAB). The costs are covered in a project feasibility study approved by ESDM. This requirement supports better transparency and accountability in the delivery of community development programs by mining companies.
