Abstract

The issue of air pollution has become one of the trending topics in Indonesia, mainly related to greenhouse gas emissions produced by companies. This study aims to analyse how companies in Indonesia disclose their carbon emission disclosures in their sustainability reports, including making assessments related to company performance on carbon emissions. This research was conducted using descriptive methods and content analysis to generate a structured and systematic analysis. This study used secondary data sources in the form of 33 sustainability reports published by 11 Indonesian companies in the Mining and Mineral and Oil and Gas industries in 2016-2018. The results of the research show that Mining and Mineral and Oil and Gas companies in Indonesia during 2016-2018 period have good performance in relation to carbon emissions, both in terms of disclosure in its sustainability report and in terms of the performance of related companies' efforts to reduce carbon emissions.
