IMP will be following the following model for designing our CSR program, focusing on the four-fold objective of meeting our CSR goal to “make a positive difference” by considering the needs and requirements of our own employees and shareholders, the environment locally and our impact on the broader global climate, the social situation near our mine and processing centers, and applying corporate governance that reflects these concerns.
While many of our goals go hand-in-hand with our corporate values, our CSR goals seek to reflect a broader sense of responsibility to the community and environment where our mine and processing centers operate. Where our corporate objectives conflict with our CSR objectives, the board will transparently address the issue in order to find a solution that does not conflict with the primary CSR goal.
IMP will interact with a wide range of stakeholders who have interest in our project as we determine our CSR goals, including:
IMP is committed to a highly transparent effort to ensure that the benefits of the business will reach the communities near to the mine with a particular focus on the nearest town with surrounding villages.
IMP will begin by implementing a series of CSR programs designed to serve the initial areas we’ve identified as requiring support. We will simultaneously execute a comprehensive study designed to understand the needs of the community, and especially to understand the cultural heritage of the local Dayak peoples and how IMP can contribute. Based on this deeper understanding, IMP will alter its CSR goals and strategy in order to better serve the people.
Initially IMP will strive to solve problems and improve opportunities without altering cultural traditions. Specifically, IMP will seek to provide a combination of:
As the time progresses, IMP will apply a more defined approach based on study and analysis of the condition in the area surrounding the mine, so that IMP’s effort to improve the lives of the people in the area of the mine reflect real needs, and real solutions.
Environmentally, IMP will also be investing to protect the concession from illegal logging, illegal mining, and other illegal activities that destroy the environment. This will require security teams tasked with ensuring all roads coming in and out of the concession have security posts to keep people from illegal activities.
