Message from Management
2020 was a very challenging year. The COVID-19 pandemic has affected all industrial sectors all over the world. The global economy was experiencing a significant slowdown. In fact, many countries (not just a few) including Indonesia were experiencing recession. Mining industries were one of those industries needed to survive in these uncertain circumstances.
However, we were not going just stay, did nothing and let alone give up on these circumstances. The ABM group continued to make various changes throughout the year in implementing adaptive policies and measures, including Occupational Health and Safety (K3) policies. We always believe that employees are the spearhead and hold important role in the Company's business sustainability (protect the people, protect the business).
Our respond to the COVID-19 pandemic were by implementing strict health protocols across the ABM group's business lines. We apply a very strict procedure on site entry and exit policies, one of which is by having an exclusive Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) testing facility.
The COVID-19 pandemic has never prevented us from continuing to grow and expand. The ABM Group continues to strive in upholding the principles of Good Corporate Governance (GCG). Our hard work in 2020 has paid off by obtaining a number of awards. We received a Proper Blue award from The Ministry of Environment and Forestry of the Republic of Indonesia for PT Mifa Bersaudara and PT Tunas Inti Abadi.
We also receive platinum award for PT Tunas Inti Abadi from The Ministry of National Development Planning (Bappenas) on DAS Rehabilitation program in the Tahura Sultan Adam Area of South Kalimantan. In addition, ABM has received an award from National Center of Sustainability Reporting (NCSR) for Asia Sustainability Reporting Rating 2020 (ASSRAT 2020); and few others prestigious awards that related to the company's CSR and operations.
As we are going to enter 2021, we are optimistic that world economy will improve. We will continuously answer all the questions regarding mining needs through end-to-end one stop mining solutions. Through our Mining Value Chain concept, all subsidiaries are able to work together and collaborate as a unit in carrying out mining operations.
Moreover, Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) implementation is also our main concern. We are committed to provide continuous empowering energy for economic growth, the environment and the surrounding communities. We implement this Sustainability in order to contribute to the advancement of civilization. Going forward, we will continue to build our understanding in the principles of Sustainability in each subsidiary, as well as building good relationships and synergies with all stakeholders. We are committed to making Sustainability a part of the Company's identity.
Finally, on behalf of the ABM Group management, let us express our gratitude and appreciation to all business partners, investors, banking partners and all other stakeholders, who have put their trust and support in us throughout 2020. Please stay healthy and happy new year.
