Abstract

There are currently twenty textile companies in Indonesia that have voluntarily disclosed information about their release of hazardous chemicals from their production facilities on an internet page. The information disclosure is carried out using the PRTR system approach, and individually by the twenty companies. In the period of 2013 to 2019, together, 43 information disclosures were recorded. All companies that disclose their pollutant release data are located in locations with very high population densities. Meanwhile 75% of them operate in locations with high HDI levels. In addition, only one company that voluntarily disclosed their pollutant release data is not located in priority watersheds. This study might provide the first step for further research on the driving or pulling factors of the voluntary information disclosure. Information that should be the rights of the public.
