Chamber of Commerce: Industrial Decarbonization No Longer Negotiable
Changing the way business is done is a must, according to Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and Industry Chairman Arsjad Rasjid. Our products so far do not meet the ideals of low emission standards.
BALI, KOMPAS - The movers of industry are faced with a dire necessity. They need to be more serious and quicker in carrying out decarbonization. Doing so is important, as it will prevent them from getting thrown out of a global market and supply chain that has become increasingly sustainable. The business sector simply cannot just run in the same perfunctory manner as it has been doing thus far.
The Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Kadin) noted that 76 percent of the energy used by the manufacturing industry currently still comes from fossil fuel energy. The total sources of energy consumption in the manufacturing sector are comprised of electrical energy (23 percent), coal (33 percent), gas (33 percent), fuel oil (10 percent) and LPG (1 percent).
