Indonesia raised its carbon emission reduction target to 31.89% by 2030.

"In terms of emission reduction, Pertamina has set a target of 30% emission reduction in 2030, versus our 2010 baseline," Pertamina's president director and CEO Nicke Widyawati said during the UN Climate Change Conference (COP27) in Egypt.

“In 2021, Pertamina has succeeded in reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 7.4 million metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalents or 29.09% compared to the 2010 baseline.”
