"This book, Environmental Regulation and Public Disclosure, gives a comprehensive background and analysis of the PROPER system and its perceived success so far. In chapters 2 and 3, the authors outline the challenges faced by developing countries―particularly Indonesia―in promoting public disclosure initiatives that can push different private and public companies to improve their environmental performance." – Fitrian Ardiansyah, The Australian National University
