To Pertamina, Indonesia's state Oil and Gas Company, Key Performance Indicator (KPI) was most important to evaluate and stipulate company’s ranking and social participation. If the performance declined by appraisal system, it was not impossible that the company’s manager could be expelled. “Even the President Director of the company can be dismissed because the company’s rating is demoted by one grade” Surna Tjahja Djajadiningrat. Head of the Technical Team of PROPER of the Ministry of Environmental Affairs disclosed to Business News (4/12).
The Ministry of Environmental Affairs (KLH) presented awards to companies which had shown good performance in environmental management. The program for Company's Performance Rating (PROPER) of 2011 - 2012 was constantly improved. This year ranking stipulation consisted of five categories, i.e. Black, Red, Blue, Green and Gold. In this period, 1,317 companies of the manufacturing, mining, energy, oil-gas, ago-industry, industrial estate and service category had been evaluated through examination of environmental management by the controlling officials of environment (PPLH) and the Ministry of KLH and/or the officials of Regional Controller of Environment (PPLH) of 22 provinces. “Gold is the highest award. If Pertamina’s performance was rated as low, the rating could be degraded from Green to Blue or even Red. The consequences was that leaders of every unit must be rated as not performing well. We will evaluate” Surna Tjahja said.
Meanwhile non Pertamina companies kept growing in number. Many company executives were getting more and more aware of environmental problems and social responsibility. Their awareness level referred to the system applied in PROPER. The Ministry of KLH had registered 1,370 companies with bettered awareness. “They are aware that operational activities and performance are inseparable from environmental and social aspects.”
Previously there were many company executives who did not internalize environmental affairs. Now thankfully company executives were changing their mindset. The Ministry of KLH and the Evaluating Team would continue to build company’s mindset which were environment and social oriented. As soon as companies joined the PROPER appraisal system, they must comply with the rules. If their awareness level was still good, they might be promoted from Blue to Green, or from Green to Gold. In tandem with that there were four points which might serve as company’s reference i.e. image, efficiency, competitiveness and environmentally friendly. “In 2013 the number of companies must increase from 1,370 to 1,600 companies.” Tjahja concluded.
- Gold category including 12 companies (1%)
- Green category including 119 companies (9%)
- Blue Category including 771 companies (59%)
- Red category including 331 companies (25%)
- Black category including 331 companies (6%)
Compared to the previous period where the participants numbered 1002, Gold Award companies rose by 140%, Green rose by 119%, Blue by 59% and Red rose by 25% and Black 6%. The increased number of Red and Black Award winners was on account of growing member of PROPER participants which had not understood all the regulations in effect.
