Jakarta Deputy Governor for Spatial Planning and Environment, Oswar Muadzin Mungkasa stated, it can be achieved due to mitigation action support. In Jakarta, there is efficient use of energy in hotels, electricity use from solar panels, switch to energy-saving LED lights, recycling paper and cardboard waste, and composting.
