Welcome to the Earth.Org Global Sustainability Index, where Earth.Org examines the policies and actions regarding the environment of every nation on earth. Combining the most respected global indexes on pollution, climate change, policy, energy, oceans, biodiversity we have produced an overall Global Index, which will be updated annually. This is the Global Sustainability Index scorecard for Indonesia.

Indonesia pledges to achieve a 41% reduction from business-as-usual in 2030. This sounds ambitious, but it is roughly equivalent to doubling today’s emissions levels; Indonesia aims to reduce its emissions in the forestry sector, which means that other sectors will see substantially lower reductions in emissions.

While Indonesia has implemented some policies to bolster its renewable energy capacity, fossil fuels remain a serious and growing issue. It plans to install over 6 GW of coal-fired power generation by 2020 and about 27 GW by 2028, when it should be shifting this investment towards renewable, zero-carbon solutions.
