A session by Coordinating Ministry for Economic Affairs
Date : Thursday, 16 November 2017
Time : 16.00 – 17.30
Venue : Indonesia Pavilion at COP 23, Bonn Zone, Bonn, Germany
Private sector is one of the most important stakeholders in Indonesia climate change mitigation actions. It is indicated that private sector and industries also contribute the biggest portion of GHG emission nationally.
To encourage private sectors’ participation in GHG emission reduction, it will need good planning for technical, financing, and also policies. It will also require collaboration between government and private sector for the implementation of the programs in a sustainable manner.
In this regard, Indonesia currently has some initiatives to enhance private sector involvement. Some ministries develop policies to enhance private sector involvement in this are Ministry of Industries, Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources, and Coordinating Ministry for Economic Affairs actively involved in this initiative.
Moreover, Indonesia private sectors have also already implemented some activities in emission reduction program. Cement and automotive industries are the example of the industries that starting to develop emission reduction program.
The technology such as waste heat recovery power generation and cogeneration will be presented as a part of industries commitment to reduce the emission as well as Indonesia government policies to support these initiatives. Hopefully the audience may get some good information and knowledge from the lesson learned that have been developed by Indonesia government and private sectors.
