Fourteen companies, including Sweden-based apparel brand H&M, are partnering with the Clean Energy Investment Accelerator (CEIA) in Indonesia, which is jointly led by the World Resource Institute (WRI), Allotrope Partners and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). These companies are aiming to transform themselves into renewable energy users.

These companies will support Indonesia’s target of having an environment-friendly energy mix by 2025.

Transitioning to clean energy is part of the company’s responsibility to the customers, Anya Sapphira, regional sustainability manager of H&M Production Office, told an Indonesian newspaper.

H&M has set a goal for 100 per cent clean energy by 2030. In Indonesia, H&M works with 35 suppliers consisting of 85 production units, only two of which currently use solar power.

“Our vision is to help mitigate climate change. One of the solutions is committing ourselves to using renewable energy,” Sapphira said.

CEIA Indonesia has demonstrated the demand for renewable energy in the market and is raising awareness of this growing movement with government and utility partners.

Also operating in Colombia, Mexico, the Philippines, and Vietnam, the CEIA was launched to accelerate clean power usage in the commercial and industrial sectors and support member companies in meeting their clean energy and climate commitments.

Indonesia has set a target to raise the use of clean energy from its current level of 12 per cent to 23 per cent of energy use by 2025, but progress toward this goal has been slow. (DS)
