Tourism energy efficiency investment programme in Indonesia


REEEP previously co-financed a low carbon tourism alliance in Fiji. The Worldwide Fund for Nature (WWF) then built on this with a Tourism Energy Efficiency Investment Programme (TEEIP), which assisted Fijian hotels and resorts that were investing in energy efficiency retrofits, and leveraged the generation and trading of carbon credits.

WWF now aims to use a similar strategy in Indonesia, by activating existing local networks to design a TEEIP Programme of Activities (PoA) Framework for the Indonesian tourism sector; one to include both an energy efficiency and a carbon offset programme. The aim is to create a model that can also be replicated in other markets.

The project will work with the Indonesian government and hotels and resorts in packaging a bundled carbon offset that delivers significant emission reductions.
