“I tend to look at the net-zero more as a term of art than anything else, and it has to have a due date within the arc of responsibility of an individual who’s got responsibility today or it’s also meaningless.”
“ICDX believes that business should return what we have taken from nature to nature. Therefore, we targets planting one million mangroves trees for carbon emission reduction. This planting is part of a commitment to advocate and pursue a carbon neutral mission,”
“Many people really want to change their behavior but do not get support from the existing infrastructure or it is not available, so it is necessary to support how the government makes a rule that can encourage a green economy. It is very important that we work together with the government to achieve the Net Zero Emission target,”
Today, more than 130 countries have now made net zero pledges, covering around 88% of global emissions. As Indonesia is currently holding the G20 Presidency, there is no better time than now for Indonesia to actualize its commitment to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions.
Carbon trading plays a key role in helping the world reach its net zero pledge by driving investment in greenhouse gas emission mitigation and energy transition measures. Therefore, it is crucial to ensure industry players have the required knowledge to effectively participate in carbon trading.
Related to that, B20 Indonesia Task Force of Trade and Investment and Task Force of Energy, Sustainability, and Climate seek to amplify support to attain greater inclusivity and sustainability to provide businesses with required knowledge to enter or scale up their carbon trading activities.
Therefore, as a prelude event to the launching of B20 Indonesia Legacy Program: Carbon Center of Excellence, ICDX together with BNEF will hold a webinar on “Untapping Indonesia Carbon Markets to Accelerate Energy Transition”
A transition to net-zero emissions would entail an economic transformation that would affect all sectors of the economy, either directly or indirectly. Specifically, Indonesia's NDC is summarized in three main sectors; energy, agriculture & FOLU, Industrial Process and Production Use (IPPU) & waste management.
Our 5th webinar carbon series with B20 Indonesia take the theme of “Indonesia's scenario to achieve net zero” to understand the roadmap on how we can achieve net zero by 2060 or even sooner.
The challenges posed by climate change require solutions and innovation. Increased efforts in low-carbon technology and market innovation are core components of decarbonization. Digitalization has the potential to drive decarbonization across the economy, from transportation, agriculture, and manufacturing to waste management. Investors, business leaders, and environmental startups play an important role in this.
Our fourth carbon webinar series in collaboration with B20 Indonesia @theb20summit take the theme of “Technology and Market Innovation For Decarbonization” to understand the role of innovation in addressing climate change challenges, and how this can create economic, social, and environmental benefits.
Today, policymakers and world leaders are gradually seeking a holistic approach to decarbonization, including switching to the use of renewable energy. The Covid-19 pandemic is also driving this, so decision makers need to shift their priorities to green recovery rather than unsustainable strategies. Recovery measures are expected to generate new jobs and economic activity.
To make the necessary impact in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and providing access to renewable energy, more projects are bigger. The development of renewable energy and large-scale energy efficiency requires countries to establish institutional, policy, financial and regulatory frameworks that help attract capital from international financial institutions, and, most importantly, the domestic and international private sector.
Therefore, as part of the B20 Indonesia side event, the Indonesia Commodity & Derivatives Exchange (ICDX) together with the B20 Indonesia Task Force Trade & Investment will hold a webinar "Advancing Low Carbon Economy through Renewable Energy"
Forest restoration is one of the solutions to the current environmental crisis. Investing in ecosystem restoration will help the economy recover from the pandemic by creating more livelihood.
As the lungs of the world, Indonesia plays a vital role in determining net-zero policies through the land use and forestry sectors.
Our second carbon webinar series take the theme of “Reviving local community through decarbonization projects in Indonesia”
