The Indonesia Net Zero Summit: Industrial Decarbonization at All Cost, held on 11 November in Bali, opens a new chapter in the country’s journey towards achieving Net Zero Emissions. Across five panel discussions, and with fireside chats as well as breakout sessions in between, the summit put leading industry actors on center stage as they shared invaluable learnings gained from their respective company/organization’s efforts in taking the necessary climate actions. Among these companies was Amazon Web Services, the global cloud infrastructure provider who is taking real actions to reduce emissions along and beyond their value chain.

The Indonesia Net Zero Summit 2022 became an opportunity for leading actors and companies in the national net zero movement such as Amazon Web Services to accelerate collective actions in building a low-carbon economy and realizing a climate-resilient Indonesia.
