Indonesia has continued to strengthen its policies on mitigating climate change and reducing greenhouse-gas emissions by, among others things, promoting low-carbon growth.
Coordinating Economic Minister Darmin Nasution said one of the strategic actions to realizing the country's commitment to low-carbon growth was by improving and strengthening development activities based on environmentally sustainable principles.
"Other actions would be to strengthen and deepen partnerships with the aim of taking further actions on emission reductions and to make it favorable to investment and business-to-business cooperation," Darmin said on Monday.
In 2013, Indonesia and Japan initiated the Joint Crediting Mechanism (JCM), which encourages cooperation between Japanese and Indonesian institutions to promote low-carbon development activities in Indonesia.
This year, the Indonesia-Japan cooperation to low-carbon growth has issued credits for its two projects in West Java, making it the first JCM issued in Indonesia and in the world.
The two projects already registered in the JCM scheme are both to introduce a high-efficiency refrigerator for the food cold-storage industry in Indonesia. These projects are the results of cooperation between Japanese company Mayekawa Manufacturing Co. and two Indonesian companies, namely PT Adib Global Food Supplies and PT Mayekawa Indonesia. The projects, located in PT Adib Global Food Supplies’ new site factory in Bekasi, West Java, aim to reduce CO2 emissions by 120 tons per year.
The companies will also conduct an emissions reduction project in frozen food-processing activities at Adib Global Food Supplies’ existing frozen food factory in Karawang, West Java, with an estimated emission reduction of 21t CO2 per year. (ebf)
