A key aspect of sustainable landscape management is to have well-developed businesses that support, instead of destroy, healthy landscapes. Undertaking sustainable landscape management as a business venture will sustain the initiatives and activities. Moreover, sustainable landscape management requires innovative sustainable financing. Landscape Indonesia advises on how to optimize different financing mechanisms to fit exactly with the needs. It is also in the process of developing Landscape Incubation Facility for Environmental Entrepreneurship (LIFE).
Reducing Plastic Waste While Producing Fuel
Imagine when plastics (which are made of oil) can be processed and reversed back to become oil again and is used as fuels. Possible? Not only is it possible, it can be done in a very cost-effective way. Pyrolysis – a way to burn materials without the presence of oxygen – can do just that. We use refined pyrolysis technology in a small-scale machine (about 5 kg – 100 kg processing capacity) to turn every kilogram (kg) of plastic waste into one liter of fuels, mainly diesel fuel that is readily usable.
Climate Financing and Carbon Market
Achieving emission reduction targets in Indonesia’s Nationally Determined Contributions requires massive financial resources. While a big part ¾ about 70 percent ¾ of the commitments are to be financed by own resources, the remaining needs to be financed through international cooperation, most likely through results-based climate financing (RBCF). Moreover, when coupled with NDC, carbon market may provide additional reduction for Indonesia. Meanwhile selling carbon ¾ coupled with NDC or beyond NDC ¾ could also bring in much needed investments into Indonesia while reducing emissions.
LandTrace / LandCoop is a platform that sits in the public domain that provides traceability information regarding specific commodity products. It is powered by blockchain technology so that it maintains the integrity of the data, and keeps ownership of the data in the hands of their original owners. But the innovative part of LandTrace / LandCoop is the business model. Commodity trader only pays per use, namely a small fraction of their unit price, when they use the traceability information from LandTrace / LamdCoop.
