Responsible Coal Mining

Through the implementation of Good Mining Practice, KPC believes that coal mining can provide sustainable benefit for all stakeholders


Good Mining Practice (GMP) has been developed by KPC to become an applicative framework in pursuit of maximizing the positive impact our mining activities. GMP was developed by KPC as a framework and working parameters that is applicable according to the basic concepts issued by the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources.


Fair and transparent goods and services procurement process needs to be conducted by KPC. In order to achieve it, we invite several contractors and suppliers to participate in selection and evaluation process. With this process, we expect to maintain credibility, properness, fairness, and trust of our suppliers. Selection and evaluation process were held based on our Standard Operation Procedures (SOP) which is organized by Supply Department. If, in case of urgency, end-users may directly appoint suppliers/contractors by submitting Waive To Tender Document that has been approved by KPC authorized management.


The nine aspects of the Good Mining Practice are being implemented by the related departments in the KPC. The nine aspects are:

  1. Employees’ Competence
  2. Mine Design and Planning
  3. Selecting Appropriate Equipment and Proper Maintenance
  4. Occupational Health and Safety
  5. Dimension and Time Frame
  6. Competitive Production Cost
  7. Environment and Ecosystem Aspect
  8. Social Community Aspect
  9. Legal Compliance and Procedural Aspect

Together with our customers, business partners, local communities, and local government officials, shareholders and employees, KPC is on the path pursuing sustainability.
