Carbon Reduction Commitments

The urgency to take action on climate change is more pressing than ever. Unfortunately, counter actions on damaging activities move very slowly compared to the rise of non-environmentally friendly activities. Changing the industry's long-existing technology will take time, so it may not be the fastest solution to generate the most impact. In the meantime, we need a more efficient mechanism to reach a low-carbon economy which lead to the carbon market. In 2015, private companies and governments from across the globe committed to becoming climate neutral by 2050 in the Paris Agreement

Taking into consideration that Indonesia is one of the lungs of the planet, its potential is tremendous in leading the implementation of carbon credit trading. Indonesia has set an unconditional target to reduce emissions by 29% and a conditional target to reduce emissions by 41% with Business as Usual (BaU) by 2030. The mechanism for carbon credit trading through an exchange can meet climate change policy objectives and reduce the costs of achieving these targets.

Carbon Markets in Indonesia

In 2100, it is projected a temperature increase of around 5 °C. If we continue on the path, this would have grave consequences on our lives and future generation. To avoid this, we have to reduce carbon emissions. As one of the world's lungs, Indonesia contributes 75-80% of the world's carbon credits. This means that Indonesia is indirectly responsible for most of the world's potential to produce carbon offsets, and makes Indonesia a potential market in the implementation of carbon credit trading. This carbon trading can contribute up to more than USD150 billion to the Indonesian economy. Organized carbon trading through the exchange will make it easier for Indonesia to achieve the targets that have been set with minimal costs, and maximize its opportunities in the international carbon trading market.

ICDX : Organizing Carbon Markets in Indonesia

ICDX Group will participate in realizing a carbon trading market that complies with the regulations and standards specified. With the readiness of the ecosystem and infrastructure owned by ICDX as a Commodity Exchange, ICDX Group will enhance the Indonesian carbon market and maximize its potential on an international scale. The government can take advantage of this and move to the implementation of the auction of carbon allowances as well as mandatory markets and voluntary markets very quickly.

Sebelum masuk membahas lebih dalam, perlu diluruskan terlebih dahulu bahwa karbon yang dimaksud disini bukanlah karbon yang dihasilkan dari arang yang biasa dijadikan sebagai bahan bakar, akan tetapi karbon dari gas polusi yang dapat menyebabkan pemanasan global dan perubahan iklim. Keadaan dunia saat ini cukup mengerikan dengan cuaca ekstrem dan bencana alam sudah menjadi hal yang umum akibat pemanasan global. Sesungguhnya, hal ini merupakan dampak dari kegiatan manusia dan kita harus bertanggung jawab, salah satunya dengan mengambil tindakan atas pelepasan gas rumah kaca (GRK) ke atmosfer.
Indonesia Commodity & Derivatives Exchange (ICDX) berencana melaunching perdagangan komoditas kredit karbon pada 2021. Potensi ekonomi dari perdagangan karbon di Indonesia diperkirakan mencapai lebih dari Rp 4.000 Triliun.
Upaya pengurangan emisi karbon tidak lagi berdasarkan prinsip filantropis untuk mengatasi perubahan iklim, tetapi juga dapat dilakukan sejalan dengan prinsip bisnis. Jika selama ini perusahaan-perusahaan penghasil emisi merasa terbebani dalam investasi untuk lingkungan, kini perusahaan-perusahaan tersebut dapat memperoleh imbalan atas investasi mereka tersebut lewat perdagangan kredit karbon.
