International and National Conference on Featuring Indonesia’s Sustainable Development (INCOFISD2017)

April 6-7, 2017


Universitas Trisakti, Jakarta Indonesia

A.    Introduction

The journey of Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) has been accomplished on 2015 and it has also been replaced by the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The SDGs draft covers 17 goals including strengthening the means of implementation and revitalizing global partnership, as well as increasing green productivity for sustainable development. Green productivity and economic growth will be the main focus of this conference, without leaving other comprehensive objectives.

Green Productivity (GP) is a strategy for simultaneously enhancing productivity and environmental performance for overall socio-economic development that leads to sustained improvement in the quality of human life. It is the combined application of appropriate productivity and environmental management tools, techniques and technologies that reduce the environmental impact of an organization's activities, products and services while enhancing profitability and competitive advantage.

The objectives of SDGs are critical because a number of organizations have been doing sustainability initiatives; yet the problems have not been solved or the impacts are not significant. Green productivity will help organizations promoting sustainable development to synchronize knowledge, resources, expertise, finance, and products to address common initiatives from academicians, corporations, SME, community, and stakeholders at a large group. Issues surrounding green productivity include efficiency, empowerment, process production, waste, energy, emission, finance, collaboration and report/documentation.  Green productivity is a dynamic strategy to harmonize economic growth and environmental protection for sustainable development. It offers small and medium businesses a way to achieve a competitive advantage by doing better with less. It is thus a practical strategy to increase productivity and protect the environment simultaneously.

In Indonesia, according for economic growth, taxes are still a major source of revenue on state budget that can derived from investments, private consumption and exports. The role of the state budget is very important for the economy of a country, which is to create jobs, to reduce the unemployment rate. Budget allocation is based on government’s programs (Nawacita) which are 1) improving the performance of public services; 2) well-targeted subsidy; 3) continuing the development priorities; 4) fulfillment of the health budget; 5) improving the welfare of the poor; 6) the provision of basic necessities of housing; and 7) harmonize on fiscal decentralization policy. Therefore, the state budget is a benchmark for economic development both in terms of economic growth and infrastructure, which is the budget target itself.    
The government policy using tax amnesty to meet the state budget of revenues, which is the first period ended at September 30, 2016. The total value of assets that are reported in the tax amnesty is Rp3,770.45 billion, consisting domestic declaration treasures Rp2,555 billion, abroad declaration of assets is Rp974 billion, and repatriate Rp141 billion. Ransom remission of taxes collected, Rp89.2 billion, are from deferred tax Rp3.06 billion, and of the suspension of the examination and preliminary evidence Rp363.67 billion.

State revenues derived from the tax amnesty need to do a review of government spending in terms of value for money; also known as the spending review. Spending Review is the efficiency of the budget that includes the effectiveness, efficiency and economy on the government budget. According to the OECD, spending review is the process of developing and adopting savings measures based on the systematic scrutiny of baseline expenditure. From the context of the spending review, then what about the management, preparation, implementation, reporting, and oversight of the state budget in order to achieve revenue and expenditure models of state harmonization, so it can bring sustainable development in Indonesia.
