Through ethical employment practices, we seek to contribute to the welfare of our workers and the local communities in Merauke.

Guided by the commitment to protecting human rights in accordance with our NDPE Policy, PT BIA employs ethical employment practices. These include protecting worker rights, fair recruitment, preventing child labor, providing a safe and secure working environment, and actively encouraging the development of an ethnically and culturally diverse workforce.

In our engagements with the local communities, especially the indigenous people, across our concession, we uphold their rights to Free, Prior, and Informed Consent (FPIC). This is implemented in adherence to the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP).

In Merauke alone, we have provided more than 3,000 jobs and economic opportunities for around 500 of our associated smallholders.
