Pertamina will continue to develop bioenergy-based fuels by utilizing existing natural resources. Pertamina will use plant-based fuels, such as sugarcane, corn, cassava, and sorghum to develop bioenergy.

"Our energy will eventually be bioenergy-based, as Indonesia has abundant resources. In India, I met with technology liaisons for bioethanol, and the byproducts can be processed in Indian companies. This is one of the follow-ups that will align our efforts with," said Nicke Widyawati, President Director of Pertamina.

According to Nicke, the bioenergy development offers many benefits in accelerating the energy transition.

"For Pertamina, bioenergy is not only about reducing emissions but also decreasing import dependency and creating job opportunities. When we promote plantations, we increase the absorption of a significant workforce amount," Nicke added.

Pertamina sees that to enhance energy independence, we must optimize Indonesia's natural resources. "It's truly sustainable when we have resources," emphasized Nicke.

Nicke as the Co-Chair of the Task Force Energy Climate Energy Sources Efficiency B20 India, ensures that the agendas in the B20 Bali and India recommendations continue to be pursued. Firstly, regarding sustainable energy, one of them is New & Renewable Energy. Secondly, the energy transition must be fair and affordable. Thirdly, as a developing country, just like India, with a large workforce, it's crucial to ensure that everyone has access to clean, modern, and affordable energy.

"We cannot do it alone; no country can do it alone. Hence, global cooperation is vital. Pertamina itself has initiated several endeavors in the context of global cooperation for energy transition," Nicke affirmed.

Vice President of Corporate Communication at Pertamina, Fadjar Djoko Santoso, stated that Pertamina is increasingly dedicated to developing energy transition initiatives following global trends.

"Pertamina is pursuing energy transition to achieve national energy resilience, accessibility, affordability, acceptability, and sustainability. In the short term, energy transition will not disrupt energy resilience; on the other hand, it can achieve carbon emission reduction targets," said Fadjar.

Pertamina, as a leading company in the energy transition, is committed to supporting the Net Zero Emission 2060 target by continuously promoting programs that directly impact the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) achievement. All these efforts align with Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) implementation across all Pertamina's business lines and operations.
