Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) is the main element of the industrial development and economic growth. FDI will bring spillover effect in the form of technology transfer, increased competitiveness and surely will open up employment. But the presence of FDI into the country is not necessarily without problems. In the massif, the presence of FDI will build new factories that will bring the potential negative environmental externalities. This research aims to analyze the impact of FDI on the quality environment represented by CO2 emissions. In addition to the FDI also hosted other macroeconomic variables to see the impact on the environment in the aggregate economy. By using the time series regression analysis, the results show that the presence of the FDI has positive effects significantly to an increase in CO2 emissions. While the other macroeconomic variable, namely, poverty and population growth has a negative effect against CO2 emissions.
Key words: CO2 Emission / Foreign Direct Investment / Population / Poverty
