employ measures to mitigate negative impacts; effluent to water, emission to air, and contamination to land. The group strives for sustainable resource use and environmental preservation by promoting environmental stewardship to reduce its ecological footprint.
Our subsidiaries, especially those engaging in coal mining and processing, manage the environment by minimizing the impact or effect of their operational activities on the environment.

Bayan Group first monitors and prepares a thorough study on environmental conditions prior to land clearing and decides on environmental management actions to be taken so as not to affect the surrounding community or the ecosystem itself. Several examples of these actions are animal conservation, air and dust monitoring, storage of topsoil for mine closure, and reclamation and revegetation. Bayan Group also cooperates with accredited laboratories recommended by the government, in which the laboratory results will be used by Bayan Group as reference to improve the quality of the Company in environmental management. The environmental performance programs are including but not limited to following areas:
Bayan Group’s commitment in environmental management is evident from the implementation of ISO 9001 Quality Management System and ISO 14001 Environmental Management System by most subsidiaries engaging in coal mining and processing since certification in 2009. This management system is maintained by quarterly external and internal audits.
Bayan Group's environmental efforts have been recognized with awards from the Ministry of Environment, the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources, and local governments, highlighting their commitment to sustainable practices and environmental protection.
