Abstract

Batik recognition as the worldÂ’s cultural heritage has a positive effect on the national growth of batik industry majority of them are small industries. On the other hand, batik industry activities also affect environment. Those industrial activities that could potentially affect environment come from the production processes such as coloring, wax coating, and dyeing where most of the produced wastes are liquid waste. This research aims in showing that implementing cleaner production through goodhousekeeping approach increases productivity, and at the same time conducts environmental management. The data collection used in this study was observations, interviews, and surveys. Data analysis method used is quantitative method including input-output analysis and environmental performance improvement analysis by using the pollution load of discharged wastewater into environment as an approach. The result shows that implementing cleaner production using goodhousekeeping to rise up productivity and environmental performance is 117 percent to 118 percent.
