The fundamental step is to have the companies calculate their emissions to measure their environmental impact; therefore, they will be able to reduce environmental impact or make informed decisions towards their sustainability targets. Despite the importance of calculating GHG emissions, many companies in Indonesia, from large & micro, small, and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) to startups, have not yet calculated their carbon footprints. This is primarily due to a lack of access to GHG accounting skills and knowledge.
