Jakarta, March 12, 2021 – Pertamina supports the provision of sustainable renewable energy at the At-Tanwir Muhammadiyah Mosque, Central Jakarta, which was inaugurated to coincide with the Isra Mi'raj Commemoration, Thursday (11/3).

Pertamina's support for the construction of the mosque is manifested in solar panels that can supply the mosque's electricity needs of 7,000 watts.

The inauguration was attended by the Minister of SOE, Erick Thohir, the Coordinating Minister for PMK, the Head of the Hajj Financial Management Agency, the General Chairperson of the Pimpinan Pusat and the HR Director of PT Pertamina (Persero), Erry Sugiharto. The inauguration was also broadcasted live via the Muhammadiyah TV Channel.

Senior Vice President of Corporate Communications & Investor Relations of Pertamina, Agus Suprijanto, said that this mosque's construction had a breakthrough, one of which was the use of renewable energy through solar cells assisted by Pertamina. It is a form of the company's way to provide adequate and environmentally friendly worship facilities.

"Pertamina's commitment to building the At-Tanwir Muhammadiyah Mosque that uses clean energy is following SDGs point 7, namely ensuring clean and affordable energy and SDGs point 11, namely building cities and settlements that are inclusive, safe, durable and sustainable," said Agus.

Agus added that this is also part of Pertamina's commitment to implementing ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) for a sustainable energy business.

Apart from Pertamina, the At-Tanwir Muhammadiyah Mosque construction did not escape the participation of other SOEs and donors.

As a corporation, added Agus, Pertamina is currently carrying out an energy transition towards renewable energy that is more environmentally friendly. Sixty-three petrol stations have been using solar power plant Rooftop and will be developed to all petrol stations. Pertamina is also developing a solar power plant (PLTS) at fuel terminal (TBBM) and Pertamina refineries.

"Pertamina will continue to be committed to innovating and developing new and renewable energy for the community so that all Indonesian people can experience clean energy," said Agus.**
