PT Kaltim Prima Coal (KPC) once again won the 2019 Subroto Award, after last year received the same award from the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM). This time, KPC won two awards at once, namely in the field of environmental protection and compliance with payment of Non-Tax State Revenues (PNBP) in the mineral and coal fields.
These two awards were received by KPC on the 2019 Subroto Award Awarding Night. The award was handed over directly by ESDM Minister Ignasius Jonan and received by KPC Chief Operating Officer (COO) Muhammad Rudy, at XXI Ballroom Djakarta Theater, Jakarta, Friday (27/9).
KPC General Manager of External Affairs and Sustainable Development (ESD) Wawan Setiawan expressed his gratitude for the ahievement of KPC as one of the companies that won the 2019 Subroto Award.
The award received, according to Wawan, is proof that KPC has a high commitment to environmental preservation and is always obedient in paying financial obligations to the state. “Thank you to the Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources for this recognition. This award shows that we still have a high commitment to environmental sustainability and are always obedient to paying royalties to the country, “Wawan said.
The Subroto Award was held in the context of welcoming the 74th Mining and Energy Day, 2019. In addition, it was a tribute to Professor Subroto, Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources, 1978-1988. Professor Subroto is considered to be the teacher and foundation for the development of energy and minerals in Indonesia.
Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources Ignasius Jonan in his remarks revealed that this award event should be a reflection to continue to adjust the spirit of work and more quickly in understanding the changing world. He also shared the story of how the Government is ready to face global challenges in overcoming climate change through New Renewable Energy (EBT). “When I attended the UN General Assembly, world leaders committed to develop EBT including Indonesia. Because energy will greatly affect climate change, ” said Jonan as stated in the official website of the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources.
He also invited stakeholders to immediately implement the use of EBT if they do not want the impact of climate change to have a negative effect on people’s lives.
Prof. Subroto himself whose name was taken as the name of the award was present on the night of the award presentation. “We must remember what Ki Hajar Dewantara has taught about leadership, that is “ing ngarso sung tulodo, ing madyo karso, tut wuri handayani “. For those who are 80-90 years old, the role of leadership has changed to become a person who plants enthusiasm in our midst. Just the presence is inspiring. So the important thing is, when you reach the elderly, you can still be active, “said Prof. Broto, who was 96 years old on September 19th.(*)
