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 SIG, the state-owned cement company who is taking real actions to reduce emissions along and beyond their value chain.
PT Semen Indonesia (Persero) Tbk (SIG) is progressing strongly in its decarbonization efforts. As of September 2022, SIG has managed to reduce carbon emissions by 591 kg CO2/ton of cement, down 2.1%, which was contributed by a decrease in the clinker factor by 1%, and an increase in Thermal Substitution Rate (TSR) of 1.6%. Recently, SIG has had a Sustainability Framework to further support the company's sustainability strategy to achieve gradual emissions reduction targeting 520 kg CO2/ton of cement and a stretch target of 493 kg CO2/ton of cement by 2032.
