Prof. Emil Salim is widely known as an environmental scientist. He has won various awards, both at the national and international levels because of his various actions. His attention to the environment and Indonesia’s development was not limited to his tenure as the first Minister of the Environment and served for 15 years. Together with several other figures, his concern was manifested by establishing the Biodiversity Foundation (KEHATI) in 1994, and is still actively involved as a KEHATI coach to this day.

A special age for a Professor Emil Salim who is still active and pithy in his opinion for the good of this country.
