Jababeka Eco Summit 2023, Jababeka Declares Jababeka Cikarang – Net Zero Industrial Cluster Community Launches Website

BANDUNGCLIMATE change in all countries in the world has become a major focus for governments even to all parts of the world. This has become a global issue and affects the world economy so many countries are aware of the need for change. This is also the case in Indonesia. The Indonesian government itself has declared to achieve Net Zero by 2060 and continues to strive to reduce carbon emissions to overcome the problem of climate change.

In line with the government’s target, Jababeka takes part in climate change – as well as in reducing air pollution. Jababeka itself declared its commitment to become Net Zero Industrial Cluster 2050 on the B20 agenda in Bali last year with Pertamina and Co-Signatory Tenants, namely L’oreal, Unilever, and Hitachi Astemo. Not only that, in early 2023, Jababeka also invites tenants to join the Jababeka Net Zero Forum to find joint solutions in decarbonization.

After conducting regular socialization after forming the forum, Jababeka Industrial Estate has increasingly strengthened its steps towards a Carbon Neutral Industrial Estate 2050. Right at the end of August 2023, Jababeka held a declaration with tenants who have set a commitment to be part of the forum which is now referred to as Jababeka Cikarang – Net Zero Industrial Cluster Community (JC-NZICC) through an event entitled “Jababeka Eco Summit 2023”.

Jababeka Eco Summit itself is the climax of a series of events starting from July 25 in the form of a hybrid Focus Group Discussion. The series continued with Sustainability Action in the form of Mangrove Planting which is Jababeka’s annual agenda, Jababeka Ecoweek and was held on August 3.

“The Indonesian government has declared to be net-zero emission by 2060, but Jababeka with the help of tenants wants to try net-zero emission in 2050. Ten years faster than the government’s target,” Tjahjadi said in his speech at Ballroom, Mason Pine Hotel, Bandung, Thursday (31/08/2023).
