Batik is a native Indonesian cultural heritage. The batik industry is spread in several cities such as Surakarta, Yogyakarta, Pekalongan, Cirebon, Madura and other cities. The development of the batik industry not only increased people incomes but also on various environmental impact. The batik production process consists of several stages, each stage using different chemicals, so the impact is also different. This study, therefore, aims to compare the environmental impacts caused by each stage in the batik production process, in an that it can be seen where the process with the highest environmental impact can be proposed for further improvement. The parameters analyzed include Human Health, Ecosystem Quality and Resources. The result is a coloring that has the greatest environmental impact when compared to other processes. This was due to the use of chemicals for the coloring process, encompassing remasol, water glass, soda ash mixed with water. The many chemicals used cause the greatest environmental impact compared to other processes. Therefore, reducing and reusing of chemicals dyes for the subsequent coloring processes or the adoption of natural dyes from plants origin are capable of reducing the environmental impacts.
