Different with other countries with their voluntary approach of CSR, the legislation makes CSR as a mandate to business in Indonesia. Through document analysis method, this study analyses six laws related to CSR in Indonesia to define the mandate of CSR legislation in order to understand the form of CSR should be practiced by companies operating in Indonesia.
