The study aimed to assess (i) the achievement of green open space planning in integrating the electric power functions of PLN, community, building, and nature, and (ii) the achievement of green open space planning in fulfilling ecological, social and cultural, ec onomic and aesthetic functions, especially to absorb CO2 emissions. The analytical method includes three steps. First, it reviewed the PLN Duri Kosambi landscape plan. Second, it analyzed the ability of each tree to absorb CO2 gas using the ability assessment in CO2 absorption. Finally, it compared the level of ability of trees planted in the PLN Duri Kosambi‟s green open space to absorb CO2 and the total amount of emissions produced by vehicles in West Jakarta. The design of activity types in Duri Kosambi includes (a) administrative and operational activities of PLN installation managers, (b) related corporate guest activities as well as supporting and operational administrative, (c) public activities or the surrounding communities are generally recreational. The total number of trees to be planted in the PLN area is 1.359, consisting of 784 big, 463 medium, and 112 small trees. It showed that (i) the design of land use fulfilling the concept of integrating the functions of electric power, people, buildings and nature are in line with the national targeted commitment to reduce carbon and stabilize the local climate change. Duri Kosambi‟s area contribution in reducing CO2 emission is 7% from th e surrounding area or 40% of the government‟s target.
