In the National Long-Term Development Plan 2025-2045, the Government reaffirms its commitment to sustainable development through economic transformation involving digital transformation and the application of green economy.

The Government strives to build a digital economy that is environmentally friendly and sustainable. The Ministry of Communication and Information Technology has begun developing green infrastructure.

Minister of Communication and Information Technology, Budi Arie Setiadi, stated that the Ministry of Communication and Information Technology has developed smart city programs and the establishment of Green Data Centers (PDH).

"As a concrete initial step to support the green economy, the Ministry of Communication and Information Technology is developing green infrastructure through sustainable smart cities and establishing environmentally friendly and sustainable data centers," he explained during the Green IMPACT Day - For Indonesia's Food, Water, and Energy Resilience, at Sasana Budaya Ganesha, ITB Bandung, on Monday (29/04/2024) as reported in the Kemkominfo press release.

According to Minister Budi Arie, the Smart City Program is implemented based on six main pillars, namely (1) Smart Governance, (2) Smart Branding, (3) Smart Living, (4) Smart Economy, (5) Smart Society, and (6) Smart Environment.

"The second effort, the development of PDH, is planned to receive Green Building Certification (BGH) and Platinum Certification from the Green Building Council Indonesia," he added.
