Operating on the border of the Batangtoru Forest with biodiversity, PT Agincourt Resources (PTAR) is committed to high standards of environmental management. This area is a habitat for the Sumatran Tiger (Panthera Tigris Sumatrae) and the Tapanuli Orangutan (Pongo Tapanuliensis), Restoration of forest habitats through reclamation and rehabilitation is consistently carried out for the protection of biodiversity. All environmental management efforts are also summarized in the PTAR Code of Ethics for biodiversity management.
PTAR understands the impact of mining operations on biodiversity around the site. Land clearing for mining is one of the main concerns of biodiversity. However, we also implement land rehabilitation after use and ensure that there are no protected wildlife species at the land clearing location. We also have strict regulations in place applicable to all employees and contractors on the prohibition of hunting and capturing wildlife in the Martabe site area. This has a positive effect on maintaining the protection of wildlife species that exist in the location. In addition, we work together with other third parties in the protection of biodiversity, especially through education, socialisation and prevention regarding wildlife poaching and trade Several collaborations done for biodiversity management: Cooperation with MoEF regarding Nature Conservation in North Sumatra PTAR supports the Ministry of Environment and Forestry (KLHK) through the North Sumatra Natural Resources Conservation Agency (BBKSDA) to release the Sumatran Tiger ‘Sri Nabila’ to the Gunung Leuser National Park (TNGL).
