The last part of the Adaro Group’s eight pillars is Adaro Foundation, under which Yayasan Adaro Bangun Negeri (YABN), a non-profit organization founded in April 2009, carries out a set of development programs to create a self-sufficient communities during and after the group’s operations. Through YABN, the Adaro Group hopes to be the showcase of a corporation that treats CSR not as an obligation, but instead, as the opportunity to connect with the surrounding communities and make meaningful changes for better living standards. This is the reason for the Adaro Group to contribute beyond what is required by the government by pursuing long-term impacts in five main areas: economic independence, educational enhancement, health improvement, socio-cultural preservation and environmental conservation.
We continue to invest a great deal of efforts and financial contributions to upgrade the living condition of the communities surrounding the operational locations of its subsidiaries. Along with its transformation from a single-site coal mining company into a prominent group of companies with extensive operations in several coal rich provinces of Indonesia, AE has continuously refined and replicated its powerful CSR programs to generate impactful results for the communities. In 2018, AE spent US$3.8 million through its subsidiaries for CSR activities, or increased US$1.5 million from the previous year to fund more activities and extend the coverage of the community empowerment initiatives.
YABN will continuously improve the effectiveness of the Adaro Group’s CSR activities to ensure bigger impacts and program replicability at other locations.
