The Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and industry (Kadin) on sunday reminded industries of the country of their comitment to cutting greenhouse gas emisssion by 26 percent in 2020.
“The target of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by up to 26 percent must receive support from industries because the target is the commitment of our country to the world,” Kadin Deputy Chief for the Environment and Climate Change Sinta W Kamdani said.
In principle, all parties were held responsible for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. “Yet industries particularly those dealing with natural resources must play a greater role in realizing our commitment to the world,” she said.
The target must be achieved in such a measurable way that the government`s program to improve the environment could be realized properly, she said.
Therefore, the use of emission gauge Li-Cor 8100 automated soil C02 flux system which is the newest technology and can download CO2 real time data might serve as a reference for industries to cut greenhouse gas emissions.
Right now PT Riau Andalan Pulp and Paper (RAPP) was the only company in Indonesia which had such emission gauge, she said.
Dr Wawan, member of the Monitoring, Reporting, and Verification (MRV) team of the Forestry Ministry said Li-Cor 8100 Automated Soil C02 Flux System was the newest technology to download C02 real time data.
“This instrument is very practical because it can be downloaded any time,” he said.
