Carbon neutral paint manufacturer PT Mowilex Indonesia announced, as G20 members meet in Bali, that it's completing a major investment capable of powering its corporate headquarters by renewable solar energy and further cutting carbon emissions.

The company intends to install panels at its Cikande factory, as well, and will eventually bring solar to all operational facilities.
A new parking lot solar canopy now captures sunlight while shading cars at the Mowilex headquarters. The system produces the maximum energy output allowed by current state electric company regulations and will cut Mowilex's carbon emissions at that facility by up to 30%.
With the solar rollout, Indonesia's first and only net-zero manufacturer expands on its carbon neutrality commitment. Mowilex, which manufactures premium paints, wood coatings and construction coatings, earned its first CarbonNeutral® certification four years ago.
The solar project further curbs emissions while supporting two national goals: Indonesia aims to use 25% renewable energy by 2030, and the country is targeting net zero carbon emissions by 2060.
"This project helps Mowilex permanently reduce its carbon footprint by up to 30% at the company headquarters. We're proud to advance Indonesia's clean energy goals by cutting emissions at the source, rather than relying exclusively on carbon offsets," says Niko Safavi, CEO of PT Mowilex Indonesia.
"Transitioning from fossil fuels to renewable solar energy reduces Mowilex's carbon footprint without carbon offsets. This carbon insetting process underscores our commitment to environmental leadership," says Tania Wakhidah Ariningtyas, who directs sustainability initiatives for PT Mowilex Indonesia.
