ILUC scheme threatens Indonesia’s CPO exports

Bisnis Indonesia, 3 October 2018

The European Union (EU) is planning to implement a new renewable energy regulation that will take into account factors including Indirect Land Use Change (ILUC) in assessing high-risk palm oil-based biodiesel. Indonesian Palm Oil Producers Association (GAPKI) Trade and Sustainability Deputy Chair Togar Sitanggang told “Bisnis” on Monday (1 October) that the association had asked EU Ambassador to Indonesia Vincent Guérend to consider Indonesia’s version of ILUC scheme for comparison. He argued that the transfer scheme of land use rights in Europe is different with the scheme in Indonesia, which sees a higher population growth.
