Indonesia became a P4G country partner in September 2019 and launched its P4G National Platform in February 2020. Indonesia’s P4G National Platform is co-chaired by the Ministry of National Development Planning (Bappenas), the Indonesia Business Council for Sustainable Development (IBCSD) and IBEKA.
From the government side, Bappenas progresses the SDGs by building strong institutions and partnerships that implement climate action, provide decent work and economic growth and quality education and drive economic growth to reduce inequalities. With seventeen partnerships, Indonesia continues to pioneer in accelerating sustainable development. The country has formally integrated sustainability objectives into the 2020-2024 National Medium-term Development Plan (RPJMN).
As the world’s largest island-state, Indonesia sees rising effects of climate change, including air pollution from coal-powered plants, deforestation, and plastic pollution. To overcome these challenges, the country is prioritizing a just energy transition, shift to an equitable circular economy that decreases plastic waste and reducing food loss and waste. With the support of the P4G National Platform, Indonesia will accelerate partnerships delivering tangible impact like One Stop Service for Energy Efficiency, which is merging energy-saving technology, energy services providers and finance providers into a single model to create a more efficient industrial cooling system.
The National Platform will play a key role in curating P4G partnerships that can deliver transformative impact in line with Indonesia’s SDGs and climate action targets. Prime examples of this include Siklus’ innovative refill solutions and Project STOP Banyuwangi’s comprehensive waste management approach to reduce plastic pollution across the country. Meanwhile, FLAWLESS is accelerating commercially viable models for corporates reducing food loss and waste in Indonesia.
P4G looks forward to supporting Indonesia’s green business models that can reduce inequality, drive economic growth and advance environmental efforts.
The world is embarking on a critical decade as we set out to reduce the impacts of climate change, which Indonesia is already feeling. Collaboration across sectors is the only headway to achieve our goals and ensure that our systems and communities endure and improve. We are excited to launch our P4G National Platform because we know it will play an integral role in our ongoing pursuit to enable and accelerate sustainable development in our country.
