We routinely conduct internal and external environmental audits to evaluate our environmental compliance, and environmental system and practices. Employees across the organization are directly responsible for maintaining the environment and developing work programs based on audit results.

Out environmental program is guided by criteria under the Environmental Management Plan (RKL) and Environmental Monitoring Plan (RPL) that are an integral part of PT Freeport Indonesia’s Environmental Permit, in accordance with Decree of the Minister of Environment and Forestry, SK.546/Menlhk/Setjen/PLA.4/11/2018 concerning Environmental Permit for Changes to the Mining Operation and Supporting Facilities as set out in the Regional ANDAL, RKL, and RPL for Proposed Expansion of Copper and Gold Mining and Supporting Activities to a Maximum Capacity of 300,000 Tons Per Day in Mimika, Papua Province for PT Freeport Indonesia, in addition to conformance to obligations under the permit on environmental control and management issued by the government. 

In 2017 we reported our environmental performance according to G4 (Global Reporting Initiative/GRI) indicators. We performed adjustments  under 2015 GRI indicators that were reported according to GRI guidelines to compare indicators  based on the same. As part of our transition in 2008/2009 to implement the ICMM Sustainable Development Framework, we developed  a process for identifying key risks and opportunities.
