Result of Webinar on the Joint Crediting Mechanism (JCM) Implementation in Indonesia – Accelerating the Transition towards Decarbonization through JCM –
Ministry of the Environment of Japan (MOEJ) and the Global Environment Centre Foundation (GEC) in collaboration with Coordinating Ministry of Economic Affairs of Indonesia and Indonesia JCM Secretariat jointly organized “Webinar on the Joint Crediting Mechanism (JCM*1) Implementation in Indonesia – Accelerating the Transition towards Decarbonization through JCM -” on Tuesday, July 26th, 2022.
As the world affairs change drastically and resource prices rise, countries around the world are in need of accelerating the transition to a zero-carbon society while maintaining a stable supply of energy. Energy saving and renewable energy by advanced decarbonizing technologies are also becoming increasingly important. The JCM Financing Programme by the Government of Japan promotes the deployment and diffusion of decarbonizing technologies in the JCM partner countries such as Indonesia and contributes to the achievement of NDC in each country. In this webinar, the Financing Programme for JCM Model Projects*2 was focused and discussed in detail, and good examples of projects that utilize the Programme were introduced.
Related to the webinar, Indonesia JCM Secretariat and GEC arranged individual consultation with companies considering applying for JCM Financing Programme.

*1 JCM stands for the Joint Crediting Mechanism, and it is a bilateral cooperation mechanism that developing countries
and Japan collaborate on GHG emission reductions projects and share the reduction result.
For further information, please refer to the official website of JCM
*2 In order to support the implementation of candidate JCM projects, Ministry of the Environment, Japan has launched
the “JCM Model Projects”. The purpose of this model project is to financially support the implementation of projects
which reduce GHG emissions by utilizing leading decarbonizing technologies in developing countries, and in return
seeks to acquire JCM credits for achievement of Japan’s GHG emission reduction target.
