According to the statement, the company has played an important role in leading the green transition in Indonesia's energy industry and targets a 30-percent reduction in emissions by 2030. It will prioritize the development of new and renewable energy to overcome environmental problems and support the realization of Indonesia's energy mix in 2030.

Pertamina supports the Indonesian 2022 G20 Presidency which has chosen energy transition as one of the agendas of the inter-governmental forum. As a member of the G20's Business 20 (B20) Task Force on Energy, Sustainability, and Climate, Pertamina will strive to become a catalyst for green policy in accordance with the principles of energy security, energy equity, and environmental sustainability.

Nicke remarked that Pertamina implemented 8 strategic initiatives to develop environmentally friendly and sustainable energy. The initiatives include establishing green refineries, developing bioenergy, commercializing hydrogen, increasing gasification, initiating battery and integrated energy storage ecosystems, as well as increasing the capacity of installed geothermal power plant.

"We believe that Indonesia's abundant geothermal resources can become a strong backbone in expediting the energy transition program in line with the government's goal of achieving net zero emissions in 2060," Widyawati added.
