Indonesia’s Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP) towards 2030 and Practical Action Guidelines for the Private Sector

May 14 2020, IBCSD in collaboration with the Center for Environmental and Forestry Standardization, held a webinar on “Indonesia’s Sustainable Consumption and Production Framework 2030”. This activity was a vehicle for dialogue for the business sector and related stakeholders to discuss the SCP 2030 Framework in Indonesia.

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were formally agreed by heads of government in 2015 as a global policy agenda and framework for development until 2030. The SDGs consist of 17 goals and 169 targets which are expected to be a reference for global action plans for development 15 next year (2015-2030). IBCSD as a business association committed to supporting sustainable development has also encouraged private sector participation to support SCP through the Green Lifestyle Program since 2017. In 2020 this program has entered the second phase with the aim of strengthening collaboration by involving more business actors and stakeholders related to creating market demand that supports the achievement of SCP in Indonesia.

 

The webinar was attended by Head of Environment and Forestry Standardization Center from the Ministry of Environment and Forestry: Ir. Noer Adi Wardojo, M.Sc. as the main speaker. As stated by Noer Adi in the webinar, IBCSD will take the responsibility to become an official partner of the Ministry of Environment and Forestry regarding the SCP standards for businesses. It is in line with the objective of the webinar, which are: To get input from private sectors on the the framework of Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP) Indonesia until the year 2030, and to enhance private sector network and collaboration in implementation of the Green Lifestyle project to support SCP (SDG 12) in Indonesia
