Indonesia: Industrial Tree Estate (HTI) program

In order to decrease the rate of deforestation, the government is developing fast growing plantations under the HTI (Industrial Tree Estate) program. By 1994 these plantations covered about 1.34 million hectares with the majority being Teak (67%); Pine (23%); Mahogany (8%); and Agathis. These plantations will provide the necessary wood and associated forest products, without having to log and harvest the country’s natural forests.

China: Consumption tax

Beijing is retooling its tax structure to incentivize the consumption of smaller, more efficient and less polluting cars. Under the current structure, there are 3 categories for engine size, while the new structure will likely have five. Buyers of low or zero-emission vehicles will be exempted from taxes while those who purchase bigger cars will pay higher taxes. (Current avg vehicle tax: 3-8 per cent levied on auto producers. New tax on bigger cars could be as high as 15-20 per cent.)

South Korea: Domestic emission trading

The Emissions Trading Scheme is being introduced in stages.  The first stage involves a demonstration project, based on the baseline matrix scheme.  Other industries like refining, petrochemical, and steel by electric furnace will join and create a new carbon market in the second phase. In the final phase, a general emission trading market will be established.  The government will participate as a buyer to absorb the credit offered by the renewable energy and ESCO projects.

China: Green Insurance System

China is beginning a trial phase of requiring insurance for companies that produce or use high- risk chemical products. Companies that have been prone to accidents recently will be targeted. This measure is intended to help victims of polluting industries receive timely and appropriate compensation. The insurance would prevent companies from going bankrupt after a serious environmental accident, but still give them incentive to lower their insurance costs by increasing their safety standards.
