Indonesia to Implement Carbon Tax by 2025
The Indonesian government decided not to collect carbon tax this year and postpone it until 2025. "Among the first [policies] that could be implemented early are carbon trading and taxes, expectedly functional by 2025," Coordinating Economic Minister Airlangga Hartarto said.
However, Airlangga did not reveal the reason behind the postponement. He only stated that the carbon tax is part of the government's commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and achieving the net-zero emissions target by 2060.
