Indonesia plants millions of trees to offset Bali conference emissions

Indonesia plants millions of trees to offset Bali conference emissions
Indonesia has announced it will plant millions of trees to soak up an estimated 50,000 tonnes of carbon emissions set to be produced during a climate change conference in Bali.

The United Nations Climate Change Conference is being held on the island from today (December 3rd) until December 14th, and the country's government has announced plans to make the meeting a carbon-positive event.

Trees being planted on three Indonesian islands have the potential to eventually soak up 900,000 tonnes of carbon, according to the Indonesian government, Reuters reported.

Rachmat Witoelar, Indonesian environment minister, said: "The government of Indonesia is dedicating the carbon stock of the trees to offset the emissions produced by the UN meeting."

"Apart from offsetting emissions, we'd like to make this a carbon positive event," he added.

During the conference delegates are to be encouraged to walk or cycle between venues to reduce their carbon footprint, the website reported, with the central zone designated a car-free area.ADNFCR-1235-ID-18379520-ADNFCR
