"Hopefully this national seminar activity can become a forum for comprehensive discussions that help and support Indonesia's acceleration in achieving the Net Zero Emission target. This can certainly be realized through joint synergy between educational institutions, the younger generation, and industry, especially the national automotive industry," said Warih Andang Tjahjono. , President Director of PT Toyota Motor Manufacturing Indonesia (TMMIN).

The collaboration of three parties, namely the government, academia and industry, which Toyota calls the Triple Helix. These three are important elements to support the Indonesia Net Zero Emission target by 2060. Some of them are carried out through greener life activities and equitable national economic development.

For Indonesia who is aiming for a position as a global player, carbon neutrality will be the main driver of future change for the life sector. Indonesia's young generation will lead in this era.

Toyota believes that students as the younger generation can be prepared earlier in taking the initiation of the green movement. Therefore, higher education institutions play a strategic role in developing, reviewing, and preparing the younger generation as the next highly competitive human resource.

The presentation of the national seminar was opened by the Director of Climate Change Mitigation of the Ministry of Environment and Forestry (KLHK) RI, Emma Rachmawati, who explained the government's commitment to realizing the net zero emission target, including what strategies the Indonesian government has taken.

UNDIP presented the Head of the Department of Urban and Regional Planning, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Prof. Dr. Ing. Wiwandari Hadayani ST, MT, MPS who gave a global perspective on net zero emissions, commitments, contributions and achievements of Indonesia and industry. Wiwandari also explained about the strategies of other countries that could be used as examples and applied to the country. The role of academics through research in supporting the strategy for implementing the emission-free target as well as the challenges in the future are also discussed.

Toyota's strategy in achieving emission reductions through multi pathways contributes to all parties in the fight against carbon emissions. Various electrification technologies that can be accessed by all parties can accelerate the development of an integrated electric vehicle ecosystem from upstream to downstream. This strategic step aims to make Indonesia a global player in electric vehicle manufacturers and play a role in the international market supply chain.

This national seminar activity is a part of the launch of the xEV Center which was held last week. The presence of the xEV Center is expected to realize a positive synergy between universities and the automotive industry sector. The strategic contribution of the younger generation as pioneers in learning activities and research on electrification technology, green energy and mobility in Indonesia is the first step in preparing the electrification ecosystem in Indonesia.

"We want to continue to contribute to the future of Indonesia's carbon neutrality by increasing the capability of national human resources which is in line with our philosophy of "Make People Before Make Products". students' abilities and knowledge in green technology so that they contribute to the electrification era industry," said Bob Azam, Corporate Affairs External Director of PT TMMIN
