01 March 2024

Harita Nickel accepted the ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) Recognized Commitment 2023 award from the Investor Daily ESG Appreciation Night event in Jakarta on Tuesday, February 27th, 2024.

This award was presented to companies with strong commitment and engagement in sustainability within their operations.

"On behalf of Harita Nickel, I extend my gratitude to Investor Daily," stated Tonny Gultom, Harita Nickel's Health, Safety, and Environmental (HSE) Director, following the event. "ESG is an integral part  Harita Nickel's operations, encompassing our social, environmental, and governance activities," he added.

The award scoring was conducted by the Investor Daily research and development team in collaboration with an independent jury, namely Dr. Uun Sunarsih SE, M.SI., CSRS, CSRA, and Dr. Erna Lovita S.E., M.Si., Ak., C.A., CSRS., CSRA. The evaluation criteria included the ESG risk decomposition concept and the quality of the ESG report.

Tonny mentioned that Harita Nickel identified the importance of sustainability early in its production process. For instance, instead of discarding the extracted topsoil during the mining process, the company stored, processed, and reused it in the reclamation and revegetation process.

Additionally, Tonny highlighted that the smelting process (from nickel ore to ferronickel) generates significant production waste, known as the nickel slag. However, the company utilizes the residual production as filler for mine holes and also in brick production.

"Nickel slag is used in our factory's construction as it can serve as a substitute for sand,” Tonny explained. 

Harita Nickel also implements an Occupational Safety and Health Management System (SMK3) for industrial workers and a Mining Safety Management System (SMKP) for mining workers.

Additionally, the company has obtained ISO 45001 certification, an international standard that specifies requirements for an occupational health and safety (K3) management system.

"We can achieve optimum production when our workers can work safely," he concluded.
