Mowilex has made improvements to the method of GHG calculations over the years, factoring in company size and expansion, as well as Mowilex’s own development in understanding GHG Protocol inventories and the impact of carbon emissions production from daily operations.  

When starting out, Mowilex had only calculated Scopes 1 & 2. However, by the second reporting year, Mowilex had included Scope 3 with inventories that follow current business operations.  

For example, 2021 marks the expansion of Mowilex’s Scope 3 GHG Inventory to include Employee Commuting – Employee Homeworking and Remote Work. This adjustment was made following the COVID-19 pandemic status in Indonesia and accounts for the emissions for employees working from home using emission factors from DEFRA and IGES.

Scope 1

Direct emission from our owned and controlled resources. This scope includes emissions from stationary sources such as generator and use of refrigerant, mobile sources such as company owned fleet of vehicles, and process emissions. 

Scope 2

Indirect emissions from the purchase of energy. In this case, our Scope 2 emissions stem from the consumption of procured electricity. Our operations across Indonesia are now powered entirely by 100% renewable energy. 

Scope 3

Indirect emissions that occur in the value chain, including both upstream and downstream emissions. Scope 3 accounts for all indirect emissions not covered by Scope 2, including waste generation, transportation and distribution, and business travel. 


For our 50th anniversary, we celebrated with a commitment to plant 50,000 trees across Indonesia by 2023. Through this initiative, we aim to combat deforestation, restore biodiversity, and mitigate the effects of climate change by providing potential carbon sink. Our actions, in partnership with the Indonesian Ministry of Environment and Forestry (KLHK), directly align with Indonesia’s aspirations to attain a Forestry and Other Land Use (FOLU) Net Sink by 2030 and achieve Net Zero Emissions by 2060. At the end of 2023, we have successfully planted 25,000 mangrove trees across various locations in Indonesia. 



Producing paint requires energy intensive raw materials, water, and energy. By reducing paint waste, we conserve these valuable resources and decrease the overall demand for new materials, contributing to more responsible use of resources. Feel free to use the calculator below to estimate your painting needs better and minimize wasted resources!

Select Your Activity : Total Energy Consumption (kWh) :

Carbon Emission kg CO2e

Equals to:
1. Emission from driving a gasoline car (km)

2. Trees that should be planted to offset the emision

Here’s how we came out with the carbon emissions figure and what it means: 

  • The calculation was run on data provided by the Indonesian Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources, 1 MWh of electricity generated is equal to 0.8 tons of CO2 equivalent gases emitted to the air. 
  • Based on where you live, the emission factor may vary due to the energy source used in different electricity grids; more power plants and less renewable sources of energy equals bigger emission factor for that electricity grid. 
  • This calculator represents what we are doing annually to calculate our emissions from purchased energy (Scope 2). By providing a glimpse of how GHG emissions are calculated, we hope to raise awareness of our environmental impact.
