Comprehensive reporting contains three types of information: (i) vision and goals, (ii) management approach, and (iii) performance indicator. The methodology used in this research was data collection. This research analyzed the disclosure of society aspect by PT Antam on their financial statement and annual CSR report for the year 2012.
