Life Cycle Thinking & Social Sustainability based on Capacity Building: An Insight from Indominco Mandiri, East Borneo – Indonesia


The coal mining's environmental management issue has become a severe global concern. Various mining management activities in Indonesia are currently starting the mine closure phase and are concentrating on developing environmentally beneficial and low-emission products. Indominco Mandiri, a coal mining company in Bontang, East Kalimantan, has implemented a capacity-building program based on social and environmental sustainability and a life-cycle appraisal culture. IMM conducts various leading environmentally sustainable activities through this program, including The Establishment of a Solar-Farm in a mixture of non-renewable power plants into a single Micro Grid system for energy efficiency 7,200 GJ and emission CO2-eq reduction of 2,000 tons each year. The reduction and usage of sources also conducted in the management of tons of B3 and Non-B3 waste to minimize the residue collected in the waste landfill. Concerning the aspect of community empowerment, IMM also focuses on the primary challenges related to the crisis of clean water with total water conservation calculated in m3, and product development from integrated plant cultivation and re-vegetation activities of Aren Genjah palm trees. In addition, IMM contributes to acid mine drainage control by reducing pollutant load. All of these activities contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by ensuring economic, social, and environmental preservation in business activities and each stakeholder involved. There are numerous challenges in preparing for capacity building in all aspects, but this is considered a learning process with long-term advantages.
