One option to reduce the problem of climate change is solar panels.

Global warming is caused by increased greenhouse gas emissions in the air, which trap the sun’s heat within Earth’s atmosphere. The burning of fossil fuels produces CO2, one of the greenhouse gasses, and is the driver for global warming. With higher retention of the sun’s heat, the world becomes warmer, creating changes in weather patterns on a global scale.

There are many ways to overcome global warming, and one of them is by using solar panels.

As part of APRIL2030 we’re committed to drive inclusive progress in Indonesia’s developing economy through transformative initiatives in livelihoods, education, healthcare and female empowerment.

That’s why APRIL is collaborating with Krealogi - a digital supply chain platform for craft enterprises to digitise order management, product planning, inventory management, and cost tracking - to execute a year-long Micro, Small, Medium-sized Enterprises (MSMEs) training programme called SEMARAK.

In the spirit of MSMEs Day every June 27, let’s take a closer look at the impact of the programme on local communities.

As a country sitting on the equator, Indonesia is blessed with reliable sunshine all year round. It’s a great resource to tap into as not only can sunlight be converted into energy easily, but it also emits no harmful waste.

So, it was not surprising when the government decided to focus more on solar energy starting last year. After all, the country hopes to keep its commitment to the Paris Agreement, limiting the annual global temperature rise below 2°C. This target can be achieved by, among other things, using low-emission energy sources.

In celebration of the first year of APRIL2030, here are APRIL Group’s remarkable milestones in accelerating climate action through a commitment to sustainability.

A new global agreement, the Glasgow Climate Pact, was reached at the COP26 in Glasgow in November 2021. The Conference of the Parties (COP) was an important moment where more than 100 world leaders revisited their climate pledges, previously made during the 2015 Paris Agreement. The attending countries were asked to participate in keeping global warming "well below" 2 degrees Celsius to prevent climate change catastrophe.
