Dharsono Hartono works as President Director of PT Rimba Makmur Utama, an Indonesia-based company developing a REDD forestry carbon credit project in Central Kalimantan. Since 1998, he has worked in financial consulting and international banking for multinationals such as PricewaterhouseCoopers and JP Morgan in New York.
His attention has since turned to managing all the challenges that his new company faces in marketing and financing for the nascent carbon market. Though he has many years of experience in the complex worlds of mergers and acquisitions and debt management, the simple virtue of patience may turn out to be the key to his success. In his talk “Business Without Bribery: Making the Impossible Possible In Indonesia,” Dharsono will discuss new ways of dealing with old habits that continue to plague the nation.
