SanctionsIndonesia Takes Action Against 11 Industrial Firms Amidst Rising Air Pollution Crisis in Jakarta

Indonesia has taken action against 11 industrial firms for failing to meet operational standards as part of its efforts to address major pollution spikes in the capital city of Jakarta. Air pollution levels in Jakarta, home to around 30 million people, have reached some of the highest levels globally, with factors such as weather patterns, vehicle emissions, coal-fired power plants, and factories contributing to the issue. The government has now imposed administrative sanctions on 11 entities, which include coal stockpiling, smelting, paper, and charcoal companies. The government is also taking measures such as inaugurating an elevated light railway line and allowing civil servants to work from home to reduce pollution.
