Summary

We evaluate the net zero target as: Target information incomplete.

Indonesia has not yet communicated an explicit net zero target but explores scenarios that could lead to net zero by 2060 in its long-term strategy (LTS) submitted to the UNFCCC in July 2021 (Government of Indonesia 2021). The National Energy Council (DEN) announced it will further assess net zero scenarios prepared in collaboration with several line ministries and the state-owned electricity utility PLN and will later commit to a pathway.

The CAT currently does not evaluate Indonesia’s net zero target given the preliminary nature and a lack of more detailed information. The CAT will do so once further information will be communicated by the government.

Review Process

Country provides no information on its intention to establish a review cycle for its net zero and intermediate targets (note: this option applies to countries that have only announced a target, with no accompanying law / policy)

Transparency
Carbon dioxide removal

No information on intention to communicate transparent assumptions on carbon dioxide removals

Country provides no information on anticipated pathways or measures

Clarity on fairness of target

Country provides no information on its intention to explain the target’s fairness.

Scope

  • Target year – Indonesia explores pathways to reach net zero by 2060.
  • Emissions coverage – Indonesia provides no explicit information on the target’s emissions coverage. The LTS considers some, but not all GHGs – the energy sector analysis focuses on CO2; while the waste sector analysis considers CO2 and CH4; industry considers CO2, N2O, PFCs, omitting HFCs and SF6; and the AFOLU sector considers CO2, CH4, and N2O (Government of Indonesia 2021).
  • International aviation and shipping – Indonesia provides no information on its intention to cover international aviation and shipping.
  • Reductions or removals outside of own borders – Indonesia provides no information on its intention to use international offset credits to meet its net zero target.

Target architecture

  • Legal status – Indonesia has not yet communicated an explicit net zero target but explores scenarios that could lead to net zero by 2060 in its long-term strategy (LTS) submitted to the UNFCCC in July 2021 (Government of Indonesia 2021).
  • Separate reduction & removal targets – Indonesia provides no information on its intention to communicate separate emission reduction and removal targets.
  • Review process – Indonesia provides no information on its intention to establish a review cycle for its net zero and intermediate targets.

Transparency

  • Carbon dioxide removal – Indonesia provides no information on its intention to communicate transparent assumptions on carbon dioxide removals.
  • Comprehensive planning – The LTS explores scenarios that could lead to net zero by 2060 or sooner but Indonesia does not yet formally commit to a pathway (Government of Indonesia 2021). The National Energy Council (DEN) will assess the net zero scenarios prepared in collaboration with several line ministries and the state-owned electricity utility PLN and will later commit to a pathway.
  • Clarity on fairness of target – Indonesia provides no information on its intention to explain the target’s fairness.

The Climate Action Tracker has defined the following good practice for all ten key elements of net zero targets. Countries can refer to this good practice to design or enhance their net zero targets.
