H. Joni


Normative legal research on corporate responsibility for the impact of coal mining in Kalimantan shows that environmental pollution has occurred. Such contamination occurs on water contamination and air pollution. Both polluted media are not only harmful to humans, but also to the surrounding ecosystem. As a form of corporate responsibility in the case of coal mining is implemented through a program known as Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). This program is constrained by the lack of supervision and activities within the CSR program. Therefore, it needs supervision with clear structure and size to the implementation of CSR. That CSR on the one hand is a form of corporate responsibility related to impacts rather than mining conducted by the company. This supervision may be initiated in the form of a regulation regarding the period of social responsibility referred to, as well as its form in order for the surrounding community to obtain legal certainty. To the company, so that social responsibility can be implemented on a regular basis, so that the community gets adequate compensation. Moreover, it should also create technology that is concretely useful for efforts to minimize the risks arising from pollution. This is very important not only for the community, especially around the mining area. However, in order to maintain environmental sustainability in a broad sense.
