The Economic Value of Carbon can be an alternative to achieve climate change target

Jakarta – Carbon Emission Value (NEK) is important as alternative funding for the government to achieve climate change targets, both as stated in the Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) in 2030 and Net Zero in 2060, Ministry of Home Affairs officials said Thursday (4/8).

Senior Researcher of the National Research and Innovative Agency (BRIN) Djarot S Wisnubroto in a podcast titled “Make Indonesia Proud” which was broadcast online said that the public must realise the importance of changing policies on the use of fossil energy to new and renewable energy.

“If that step is not taken, then the world will be in a lot of trouble. Starting from global warming, agricultural land will decrease, to the possibility of the disappearance of archipelagic countries,” he said.

Wisnubroto said that one of the policies to support the zero carbon emission program is to optimise Solar Power Plants (PLTS), which in the future will become renewable energy. He also encouraged civil servants to develop competency and knowledge on zero carbon emissions, so they will be able to implement it in everyday life.

To support the implementation of the NEK, the government issued Presidential Decree No. 98/2021 on the Implementation of Carbon Economic Values. This Presidential Regulation is the basis for implementing various NEK instruments such as the Emission Trading System or emissions trading, offset crediting or carbon credits, and Result Based Payments.
