TIMESINDONESIA, JAKARTA – Arsari Tambang through PT Mitra Stania Prima (MSP Smelter) targets to achieve the Public Disclosure Program for Environmental Compliance (Proper) gold of the Ministry of Environment and Forestry (KLHK) in 2025.

Proper is a form of government policy to improve the quality and management of the environment. PT MSP Director Harwendro Adityo Dewanto said Proper is not a substitute for conventional compliance instruments but is complementary and synergises with other compliance instruments.

He said the target is a form of the company's commitment and consistency towards environmental conservation and natural resource management based on community welfare.

"As a group of companies that are closely related to the environment, Arsari Tambang is responsible and committed to consistently maintaining and managing the balance of preserving the natural environment," Harwendro said in his official statement, Wednesday (22/5/2024). 

To achieve this, MSP Smelter runs a series of awareness programmes, better environmental management and sustainable community development efforts.

Among them are environmental conservation awareness programmes through forest reforestation, watershed rehabilitation, coral reef recovery, community empowerment development (PPM) and many more. 

He said the company's successful programmes include restoring forest sustainability through a watershed rehabilitation programme in the Sembulan River Production Forest Area, Kerakas Village, Sungaiselan District, Central Bangka Regency. In addition, it runs an environmentally friendly charcoal and essential oil (broom-sweep plant) making programme.


The company also runs a sea reclamation programme using the company's operational waste that is not categorised as hazardous and toxic raw materials (B3) or non-B3, namely fire bricks in Bangka Regency. "This fire brick is made into an anchor which is part of an artificial coral reef to become a fish house or fish FAD," Harwendro explained. 

For the education sector, Arsari Tambang consistently supports the development of education in Bangka Belitung Islands Province. A concrete example is the signing of a cooperation agreement (PKS) with two universities, namely the University of Bangka Belitung and Politeknik Manufaktur (Polman) Babel.

"The various efforts include controlling water pollution, controlling air pollution, managing hazardous and toxic waste, controlling seawater pollution and potential land damage," he said. 

The various PPM programmes that have been implemented in the 2022-2023 period. Among them are the construction of a mosque in Penyusuk Belinyu Village, the construction of an auxiliary health centre, the construction of a Qur'an Reading Park in Parit Pekir Sungailiat, the delivery of Container Boxes for MSMEs in Belinyu, the construction of an ablution place at the Al Uswah Mosque in Parit Pekir Sungailiat, the construction of Essential Oil Refining Facilities and Supports for MSMEs Mapur Assalam in Mapur Village. 

Then, assistance for packaging machine tools for Belangkas Berseri MSMEs in Belo Laut Village, West Bangka, laboratory equipment for SMAN 1 Sungailiat, Oxygen Plus Regulator assistance to the Bangka Regency Government, Educational Scholarship assistance to SMPN 2 Sungaiselan students, Wheelchair assistance to the Central Bangka Regency Social Service, Charcoal Making Tools in Jelitik Village, construction of MSME Pujadesa in Air Mesu Village, Central Bangka, and others.
