Reduction of Glass House gas emission in FIK UI perimeter programs are among others energy saving programs, motor vehicle reduction, plastic usage reduction, paper usage reduction, organic waste treatment, and reforestation in collaboration with the students.

Reduction of electricity is proceeded by usage of energy saving lamps, motion sensor lamps, and the call for turning off electricity. In addition, electricity usage reduction can also be implemented by alternatingly activate elevator in between semester period when learning process is inactive and turn off elevator on holidays. Furthermore, in this pandemic period, FIK also only activates 1 elevator on weekdays.

To reduce CO2 and Nitrite Oxide (N2o) emission from fossil fuel burning, FIK UI provides faculty bicycle and UI bicycle as a means of transportation for the campus community members. Beside glass house gas reduction program through reduction of electricity and bicycle use, FIK UI also starts to reduce plastic usage by prohibiting the use of plastic straw in campus, usage of tumbler and participation in loving UI campus by utilizing plastic as basic material for making fashion show clothing. This is performed due to increase of glass house gas emission (methane and ethylene) when plastic is exposed to sunlight. Total emission of glass house gas can be generated from deforestation of forest as the source of paper materials. Therefore, to reduce the effect of glass house gas emission, FIK calls for reduction of paper towel, usage of both side of paper in printing document draft and usage of used paper as envelopes. In addition, before the Pandemic, during PSAF, FIK UI freshmen are involved in escalating reforestation by bringing plants to campus in order to reduce CO2.

GO GREEN FIK UI activities is supported by the policy of Go Green FIK UI Implementation specified in Dean’s Decree No. 5670/UN2.F12.D/HKP.02.04/2018.
