A national index for environmental quality in 2010, just released, points to Bali as having the highest score among the 29 Indonesian provinces reviewed in the survey. Bali scored a 99.65 index out of a possible 100.

Antara Bali quotes a  Deputy at the Ministry of the Environment, Henry Bastaman, as saying on Tuesday, June 7, 2011: "Bali is in the first ranking. Nationally there are 19 provinces that have experienced an improvement in their quality index as compared to 2009."

Henry said that the average national index improved two points in 2010 as compared to 2009, rising from 59.79 to 61.07, due to an overall improvement in river qualities. The survey by the Ministry of the Environment reviews the quality of river water, air quality and forest coverage.
The 2009 survey also places North Sulawesi in a high  position with a score of 88.21, a score that declined to 84.18 in 2010.

Bali's top rating of 99.65 was followed in second place by Gorontalo with an index score of 97.93, followed by Central Sulawesi at 97.58, and Bengkulu in fourth place at 96,89.

The "loser" in the 2010 survey was Indonesia's capital of Jakarta with the lowest index of 41.81, a slight improvement from the 2009 score of 41.73. Also at the bottom of the heap were Banten at 49.98, East Java at 49.49 and Central Kalimantan at 50.38.

Generally, Javanese provinces ranked poorly in the survey due to factors of population density and industrialization.
