Jakarta, June 7 - The Indonesian government has pledged to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 41 percent, equivalent to over 1.02 billion tonnes of CO2 by 2030.

Deputy Minister of Environment and Forestry Alue Dohong said, in the country’s Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) document, Indonesia is committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 29 percent with business as usual (BAU) and by up to 41 percent with international assistance by 2030.

He stressed that 29 percent is equivalent to 826 million tonnes of CO2 and 41 percent is equivalent to more than 1.02 billion tonnes of CO2 by 2030.

The Indonesian government and other members of the international community had approved the Paris Climate Agreement and had prepared an NDC that covers a projected potential for reducing greenhouse gas emissions, he added.
