Jakarta. As the leading automotive manufacturer to champion technology and innovation, BMW Group is playing an active role in the Automotive Industry Roadmap Formulation Discussion on the National Energy Policy and Greenhouse Gases (CO2) Reduction Target. The roadmap formulation will also finalize a quantifiable target from the automotive industry up to 2030 and provide all the supporting elements in order to achieve the target of reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) while also achieving an energy mix as mandated by the General Plan for National Energy (RUEN).
Jodie O’tania, BMW Group Indonesia’s Vice President of Corporate Communications stated, “BMW Group places a big emphasis on the future reduction of carbon dioxide, including in Indonesia. From 1995 to 2015, BMW has succeeded in reducing up to 40% of the CO2 emissions from its European car sales, putting the BMW Group on top of the Dow Jones Sustainability Index for 10 years in a row. We are confident that our participation in this Focus Group Discussion (FGD) at the Ministry of Industry will serve as a perfect platform for us to share our best practices.”
BMW Group Indonesia supports the advancement of the transportation industry, while also saluting the Indonesian government’s commitment to the industry. The Industry Ministry has been cooperating with the Indonesia Automotive Institute (IOI) since 2016, developing the Land Transportation Industry Roadmap, especially for the automotive industry in Indonesia in relation to the National Energy Policy and Greenhouse Gases Reduction target. It is hoped that the creation of the roadmap will serve as a benchmark for all involved parties in running their future programs, thereby supporting the achievement of the energy mix target in compliance with the National Energy Policy (KEN) and General Plan for National Energy (RUEN), as well as a reduction in greenhouse gases of 29% by 2030. The FGD is also looking at the composition of vehicles throughout the nation.
