Jakarta (ANTARA) - The Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Kadin) has said that it believes the Kadin Net Zero Hub program will help lower greenhouse gas emissions by up to 29 percent by 2020-2030.

The emissions reduction will be in accordance with the Paris Agreement, it noted.

In a statement issued here on Friday, chairman of Kadin's Renewable Energy Committee, Muhammad Yurizki, noted that the program is a real collaboration between the public and private sectors to achieve decarbonization.

Kadin Net Zero Hub is a place to share information, knowledge, resources, and tools, for corporations, even micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs), who want to be a net-zero company, Yurizki explained.

"Afterwards, we connect them with enablers," he explained.

Through the program, Kadin can invite corporations to become champions of net-zero, he noted.

"Private players can share their insights, their learned lessons, and initiatives that they have made to become net-zero companies," he said.

Earlier, through the "Road to COP26: Indonesian Pathway to Net Zero Emission-Energy Transition" activity, Kadin unveiled the Kadin Net Zero Hub as a starting point for a net-zero movement for the private sector.

The event was attended by representatives from national electricity sector stakeholders such as the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources, House of Representatives (DPR) Commission VII, and state-run electric company PT Perusahaan Listrik Negara (Persero) (PLN).

Through the activity, Kadin urged corporations in Indonesia, such as Indika Energy, APRIL Group, and Gojek, to declare a net-zero target by achieving zero emissions.

"Only through the collaboration and the support from the private sector that Indonesia could fulfill the international commitment as it was described within Indonesia's Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) and Updated NDC toward United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC)," Yurizki said.
