Driving An Inclusive ESG Actions in South-East Asia Through ESG NXT 2022

The ESG NXT 2022 conference, a joint event of BCSD Malaysia and Knowledge Group of Companies, provides valuable insights on businesses’ actions needed to accelerate the system transformations necessary for a net-zero, nature-positive, and more equitable future. The conference features prominent international and local thought leaders and experts to talk about an inclusive theme, “Making ESG Actionable For All”. It aims to foster meaningful discussions that provide a multi-dimensional perspective on sustainability’s critical issues and “how-to” solutions. This conference has been skillfully designed around 4 tracks covering:

  • Built Environment, Transport, and Mobility
  • Energy and Decarbonization
  • Food, Agriculture, Health and Wellbeing
  • Products and Materials

These tracks have been strategically chosen as they encapsulate the critical areas where systems transformation is most needed and ESG ambitions and metrics need to be adequately set.

Operating in the same region, IBCSD was given the opportunity to share the ESG landscape in Indonesia and how IBCSD’s programs can support the businesses to take one step at a time on their net-zero emission and nature-positive journey. On the first day, Indah Budiani, Executive Director of IBCSD, shared how businesses define their pathways of decarbonization strategy with collective commitment and actions through the Net-Zero Hub. The Net-Zero Hub is a platform jointly developed by IBCSD with Indonesia Chamber of Commerce (KADIN) to help businesses to achieve science-based targets on net-zero emission. 

In the Food, Agriculture, Health and Wellbeing track, Bryan Citrasena, Project Manager of IBCSD, talked about the importance of addressing food loss and waste (FLW) for food and agriculture sector businesses to reduce their impact on nature and benefit socio-economic development. Tackling FLW has been underlined in the SDG 12.3 goal with a specific reduction target of 50% by 2030. The IBCSD program, namely GRASP2030, collects businesses and other supporting stakeholders in the food value chain to make food consumption and production more sustainable by reducing FLW in Indonesia. In the same forum, Tan Hong Tat, Head of Sustainability at AEON Malaysia, also shared AEON’s practices in tackling FLW and how they influence customers to have more awareness about food waste.

The conference took two consecutive days in Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur. With more than 60 competent speakers, a series of presentations, talkshows and discussions was conveyed in this two-days conference, talking on how businesses need to move on from business as usual mindset to more proactive stance against climate emergency.

Addressing Regional Food Loss & Waste Issue, GRASP2030 Promoted Multi-stakeholder Collaboration

In line with the Indonesian Presidency at the G20, the Ministry of Agriculture through the Meeting of Agricultural Chief Scientists (MACS) has an agenda to support the Sustainable Development Goals, especially the 12.3 target, a 50% reduction of FLW at the retail and consumer levels, as well as reducing FLW in the food production chain.

 The Technical Workshop on Food Loss and Waste is a series of MACS agendas organized by the Agricultural Research and Development Agency (Balitbangtan) of the Ministry of Agriculture, in this case the Agricultural Postharvest Research and Development Center (BB Pascapanen) in collaboration with the Th?nen Institute, Germany. The activity took place for two days from 5-6 October 2022 at the Grand Kheisa Hotel, Yogyakarta Special Region.

 Carrying the theme ‘What Reduction on Food Loss and Waste can and must be contributed to Sustainable Intensification’, this workshop aims to obtain the latest information related to FLW reduction innovations in the ASEAN region, determine relevant FLW measurement methods, and determine appropriate policies to be jointly implemented regionally.

 IBCSD was given an opportunity to introduce GRASP2030 as a collaboration platform between private sectors and other supporting actors to work together in tackling food loss and waste on the first day of the workshop. The Executive Director of IBCSD, Indah Budiani, said that GRASP2030 would support the government and contribute to FLW reduction action in Indonesia.

 Other competent speakers also presented valuable information of FLW interventions in ASEAN and global during the plenary session. The line of speakers namely Carola Fabi (FAO), Dr. Kohei Watanabe (Teikyo University), Prof. Dr. S. Joni Munarso (Association of Indonesian Postharvest Technology Experts), Prof. Dr. Handewi Salim (Indonesian Research Association), Kuntum Melati, MA, MSc (Stockholm Environment Institute Asia), and Young Run Hur (UNEP). After the plenary presentation, the participants were divided into 4 groups to brainstorm on what needs to be done and what are the challenges in reducing food loss and waste in the region.

 On the second day, speakers, delegates, and participants visited a maggot farm operated by PT Maggoprotein Alam Indonesia as one of the practical solutions to reduce food waste in the Yogyakarta region. After that, the group was brought to visit Salak (snake fruit) plantation, Foodbank of Indonesia, and Batik craft center. The workshop was closed with dinner and Ramayana ballet show at Prambanan temple.

 The Food Loss and Waste Technical Workshop was attended by 9 ASEAN countries consisting of policy makers, ministries/institutions, universities, practitioners, companies and related associations. (Bryan)

Request for Proposal: Consultant for Kubu Raya Investment Outlook

The province of West Kalimantan has launched a green development (Green Growth) that is environmentally friendly with a commodity-based basis as an effort to support the Contribution of the Government of Indonesia (NDC) in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and deforestation. As a member of the Governor’s Climate and Forests Task Force, the development of West Kalimantan Province in an effort to reduce emissions refers to 3 main pillars. There are three main pillars, the first pillar is strengthening the Forest Management Unit, Controlling the Use of Space and Governance of permits, the second pillar is building partnerships with the private sector to ensure commodity supply chains are produced in a sustainable and environmentally friendly manner and the third pillar is ensuring low emission development that is sustainable and environmentally friendly. inclusive with the active involvement of indigenous peoples and smallholders. These three pillars serve as a guide in realizing green development efforts that have been developed since the last few years through the cooperation of various parties. As an example, for the first pillar, since 2010 five FMUs have been built and started operating in five districts, namely Kapuas Hulu, Sintang, Ketapang, Melawi and Kubu Raya.

 

However, to integrate all the efforts that have been made and build synergies between all parties at the provincial level in the future, from investors for renewable energy development, or from commercial investors, impact investors and also international donors in funding and investing in helping the activities of the private sector and small farmers in production by taking into account and including elements of forest and environmental protection in the investment cooperation agreement.

 

Investment Opportunity in Kubu Raya

The concept of green growth presents a new approach to economic growth. Placing human well-being at the center of development and ensuring natural resource assets continue to provide environmental resources and services to support sustainable development.

“Currently, there are still many economic practices that do not pay attention to environmental sustainability. These practices should be improved through initiatives to regulate, foster and provide incentives and disincentives to economic activities.

 

Kubu Raya Regency, which was formed in 2007, has an area based on Law Number 35 of 2007 of 6,958.22 square Kilometres. It consists of nine sub-districts and 118 villages. Where, four sub-districts are located in coastal areas with a coastline of 194 kilometres and has 39 small islands. In addition, it has an area of ??523,405 hectares of peat land or 60.9 percent of the Kubu Raya area.

 

Kubu Raya Regency has the potential of natural resources for the development of agriculture, plantations, forestry, livestock and fisheries as well as in the form of potential mining materials and energy resources. In addition to the agricultural sector which is the prima donna, the fisheries sector has reliable potential which is dominated by marine fisheries considering that Kubu Raya Regency has an adequate sea area, which is about 1,630.68 square kilometers and public waters about 760 square kilometers.

 

Both dry land and wetland agriculture have great potential, he said, there are several commodities that are cultivated, namely rice, corn, sweet potatoes, soybeans, peanuts and vegetables and fruits. The commodity-producing centers include Sungai Kakap, Terentang, Batu Ampar, Rasau Jaya and Teluk Pakedai sub-districts. “These areas are well-known areas in West Kalimantan as agricultural centers with quite large agricultural production. Even Sungai Kakap District has been proposed to be an Integrated Agropolitan Business area (KUAT) and also Rasau Jaya District as an Integrated Independent City (KTM), with an industrial base of agriculture, animal husbandry and fisheries with adequate land carrying capacity.

 

For plantation activities for commodities on an industrial scale, namely rubber, coconut and oil palm commodities, which are spread across several sub-districts, namely Sungai Ambawang, Kuala Mandor B, Batu Ampar, Kubu and Sungai Kakap sub-districts with fairly good production. Even for palm oil, it is estimated that the production will continue to increase as more business actors open new areas for oil palm plantations.

 

The potential of the forestry sector is still dominated by the wood processing industry which is divided into two groups, namely the Primary Industry Business Permit for Timber Forest Products Utilization (IUI-PHHK) and the Lamjutan Timber Processing Permit (IPKL). The potential of natural forest and production forest tends to decrease and only certain types can be utilized, namely the potential of mangroves with export market share in the form of charcoal briquettes and also industrial forest plantations.

 

Animal and poultry farms with a potential number are found in every sub-district of Kubu Raya Regency with types of cattle, goats, buffalo and pigs. The poultry group is dominated by chickens and ducks. The fishery production sector is dominated by marine fisheries, as well as from aquaculture ponds, ponds and cages in significant quantities.

 

Judging from the existing potential, the opportunity for developing aquaculture business in the Kubu Raya Regency area is still very potential to be developed, especially in prospective commodities such as freshwater fish commodities in the form of carp, betutu fish, giant prawns, catfish, tilapia. , patent fish, pomfret and jelawat fish. Meanwhile, for brackish water and marine aquaculture, prospective commodities that can be developed are grouper, tiger prawn, vanamaae shrimp, mangrove crab, milkfish and white snapper. In addition to consumption fish, the prospect of developing aquaculture business which has the potential to be developed in Kubu Raya Regency is the arowana fish commodity. This commodity is quite widely developed in the Kubu Raya Regency, both from local investors and investors from outside the Province of West Kalimantan.

Celebrate First Anniversary, GRASP2030 Collaborates with 22 Businesses and Organizations to Reduce Food Loss and Waste

Since its launch in 2021, GRASP2030 has committed to uniting all business players and partners supporting the food system chain in Indonesia to take concrete actions to halve food loss and waste (FLW) by 2030 such as Goal 12.3 of the Sustainable Development Goals (TPB/SDGs) and Goals. 2 Reduces Hunger Problems. Stakeholders’ concern for FLW has been proven within a year, GRASP2030 has collaborated with more than 20 members from the food and beverage industry, hotels, start-ups, think tanks, food donation organizations and retail.

“In the past year IBCSD has tried to facilitate this through GRASP 2030 by increasing the capacity of the private sector in managing and reducing food waste with the Target-Measure-Act approach  which is carried out in working group activities and other activities,” said IBCSD President, Shinta W. Kamdani in opening the event.

“I hope this celebration of the achievements in the first year can be a motivation for GRASP2030 to be on-track and continue to grow in achieving our goals together with our goal of halving food loss and food waste to be achieved in 2030,” explained Shinta.

GRASP2030 Strengthen Business Commitment and Partners to Reduce Food Loss and Waste

Talking about waste and food waste, according to FAO, this causes trillions of dollars in losses to industry and accounts for 8-10% of global emissions that can accelerate climate change. It is known from The Economist Intelligence Unit, Indonesia is the second largest food waste contributor in the world. This statement is supported by the results of the BAPPENAS FLW Study over the past decade, which shows at least 115-184 kg of food waste generation per capita per year. The sad thing is that the Global Hunger Index states that Indonesia is still at the level of serious hunger. This means that there is an imbalance between food produced, consumed, distributed and wasted. Seeing this phenomenon, the strategy for handling food loss and waste will require several actors from various sectors to take joint action.

“Data is the new gold. What we do is meaningless without measurement and reporting. So that by 2030, there will be reports that Indonesia must have reduced food waste,” said Cogito Ergo S. R., GRASP2030 Steering Group and General Manager of FoodCycle Indonesia. “Of course we still need further collaborations. We invite signatories to be able to invite their network to join GRASP2030.”

Cogito added that GRASP2030 continues to support the Government’s Priority Program in the RPJMN to increase the availability, access and quality of food consumption and Low Carbon development by forming two working groups, namely Measurement-Reporting and Food Donation. The movement has also launched a website that can be used as a reference for sharing the latest news and best practices about reducing FLW. Not only that, GRASP2030 actively engages in dialogue with the relevant government and seeks to build public awareness to be wiser in consuming food through a Social Media Campaign titled #Consumindful. Sintesa Peninsula Hotel Palembang, as a member, applies a financial model for FLW by utilizing the “Food Waste Tracker” technology from Leanpath.

Several other important points presented in this webinar were that the National Food Agency collaborated with a member of GRASP2030, Surplus Indonesia, with Sarinah and HIPPINDO in initiating the Sarinah Free Food Waste program, which is a public-private collaboration in supporting the reduction of FLW.

In the discussion, KLHK explained that food waste data is the largest of Indonesia’s total waste and the public also needs to be given an understanding of household waste segregation and scheduled or sorted collection. Currently, the Ministry of Environment and Forestry is conducting capacity building for local governments to the sub-district level to ensure that the mechanism for collecting and preparing facilities is ready to support the movement. Welcoming the G20, the Ministry of Environment and Forestry collaborated with the Bali Government to implement a separate waste collection system.

Now the urge to take action against food loss and waste has become the concern of many parties. Through GRASP2030, it is hoped that more businesses and supply chain partners will care and take action to achieve the goal of halving food loss and waste by 2030.

3rd Dialogue Business and Government Handling Marine Debris through Circularity The Implementation of the Circular Economy is a Shared Responsibility

Executive Director of IBCSD, Indah Budiani said that the policy has required producers and retailers in Indonesia to be more responsible in managing waste from their products which leads to the implementation of a circular economy.

 Like Thailand, Indonesia needs to have positive terminology in that it doesn’t just emphasize responsibility to one party. in solving this problem. The suggestion of the term Extended Stakeholders Responsibility in the previous discussion with consumer goods and brand owners was deemed appropriate. “Through this opportunity, IBCSD would like to facilitate various proposals and solutions such as best practices and what policy feedback can be supported by stakeholders in handling marine debris.”

 In a key speech, the Director of Waste Management, Ministry of Environment and Forestry, Sinta Saptarina said that the central government had compiled various regulatory and regional policies as a legal binding effort and formed a PSL TKN Team consisting of 18 ministries. KLHK as the daily coordination center for TKN PSL has made various collaborative efforts, built public awareness, provided infrastructure assistance to local governments, strengthened waste banks and committed producer responsibility and allocated funds to establish international cooperation.

 “The circular economy is one of the important approaches to achieve the target of 30% waste reduction in 2025. Through the implementation of PerMen LHK No. 75 of 2019 we encourage 3 principles of industrial waste management, namely R1 restriction, R2 recycling, and R3 waste reuse. This IBCSD dialogue helps one of our strategies to coordinate and build awareness among various parties.” said Sinta.

 The Government and Business Dialogue in Handling Marine Debris also invited business, government, academics, researchers, and presented several speakers, namely Murboyudo Joyosuyono, Directorate of Downstream Chemical and Pharmaceutical Industries of the Ministry of Industry; Emenda Sembiring, Associate Professor of Environmental Engineering ITB; Rima Yuliantari, Environmental Sub-Directorate of the Ministry of Home Affairs and Ujang Solihin, Head of Sub-Directorate for Producer Management at the Ministry of Environment and Forestry Waste Reduction Directorate and Iman Santoso, Sustainability Manager for Coca Cola Euro Pacific (CCEP) Indonesia, and moderated by IBCSD Program Manager, Aloysius Wiratmo.

 In the discussion, several important points were conveyed where plastic problems arise because the plastic packaging industry is here to support other industries. Meanwhile, the unequal distribution of waste recycling and unfinished management on land has caused waste to pile up in the sea. In line with EPR and the circular economy principle which maintains plastic material with a full life cycle approach, CCEP in his presentation said that currently it has focused on the packaging recycling program to reduce oil based virgin plastic through collaborative waste collection and management with non-government institutions. Meanwhile, to encourage the role of local governments and communities, the Ministry of Home Affairs has directed the increasing role of institutions and budgets in waste management through Permendagri No. 7 of 2021. The Marine and Fisheries Ministry also hopes that there will be a regional regulational that can help handle waste in the sea or waters, not only on land.

 Through this dialogue between the government and business, it is hoped that this will be a trigger for all stakeholders to continue the good intentions of building the Indonesian economy that still cares about the environment.

PRESS RELEASE CEO Networking Forum KADIN Net Zero Hub Helps National Company Transition Towards Net Zero Company

Jakarta – The Indonesian government is committed to achieving Net Zero Emission by 2060, where national business actors play a very important role in efforts to achieve this target. Industries are required to make a transition to a Net Zero Company. The transition process itself is not easy, so it requires enormous support from various parties.

To assist national companies in this transition process, KADIN Indonesia, through the Kadin Net Zero Hub initiative, acts as an ecosystem enabler for national companies that want to make the transition to a Net Zero Company. Since the Indonesian government is committed to achieving emission reduction targets and achieving Net Zero Emissions by 2060, the private sector must be able to manage and adapt to policy changes related to climate change mitigation and adaptation efforts. The KADIN Net Zero Hub (KADIN NZH) initiative is a collaboration between Kadin and the Indonesia Business Council for Sustainable Development (IBCSD), WRI Indonesia, and the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) which provides assistance to companies in this green transition effort.

In the CEO Networking Forum discussion with the theme “Business Leadership and Collective Actions towards Net-Zero Emissions”, Monday (29/8/2022), Head of the Daily Work Team of KADIN Net Zero Hub, M. Yusrizki said KADIN NZH invites private companies to reduce emissions greenhouse gasses (GHG). In this initiative, KADIN Indonesia acts as an ecosystem enabler for the public and private sectors that are committed to contributing to the journey towards decarbonization or reducing GHG emissions by up to 29 percent in 2020-2030 according to the 2015 Paris Agreement.

Yusrizki said that the KADIN Net-Zero Hub is a platform to help the business world move together towards Emission Neutrality, by building strategic partnerships and a Net Zero ecosystem in Indonesia to help companies plan, execute and report concrete actions to achieve emission neutrality. “Through the opportunity for the CEO Networking Forum, we hope to create leadership and collective action in the business sector in moving together towards Net Zero and building a highly competitive Indonesian green economy.”

This CEO Networking Forum aims to provide information to companies about the role of KADIN NZH in encouraging business transition to Net Zero, leadership, networking and collaboration between business sectors to support the commitment of Indonesian companies.

The CEO Networking Forum On Business Leadership and Collective Actions towards Net-Zero Emissions which was held in a dialogue format by inviting the company’s business leaders, also presented several speakers, namely the NZH KADIN Daily Working Team, Octavianus Bramantya; SBT Engagement Manager CDP Indonesia, Dedy Mahardika; WRI Indonesia’s Sustainable Business and Corporate Engagement Manager, Nanda Noor and Executive Director of IBCSD, Indah Budiani.

Several other important points presented in this forum were how businesses must immediately start the transition process by using a framework based on the Science Based Target Initiative (SBTi), calculating greenhouse gas emissions inventory (GHG inventory) and reporting climate change (Climate Disclosure) referring to CDP.

Approximately 50 company leaders from the manufacturing, textile, energy and other sectors attended the event. On the same occasion, KADIN Net Zero Hub also took advantage of the momentum of B20 to get 100 Indonesian companies that promised net zero emission commitments. Through CEO Networking, it is hoped that more companies will be interested in joining and realizing the target of Net Zero Emission Indonesia 2060.
