The carbon tax has been established as an instrument expected to support Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in Indonesia. The carbon tax implementation is inseparable from the risk factor of money laundering crimes. Implementing the carbon tax will open up carbon buying and selling transactions in the carbon market. It is feared that the transaction could be one of the attempts by criminals to commit money laundering crimes. Criminals can buy carbon credits through brokers and then re-sell them in subsequent trades to layering transactions in hiding or obscuring illegal sources, making it difficult to track those results. This layering process can be carried out using corporations either as a means or the corporation itself as a perpetrator of money laundering acts. Therefore, tracing the results of money laundering crimes in the carbon tax is difficult because the funds have been integrated with other state revenue sources. This paper aims to analyze how the construction of a robust anti-money laundering regime can be applied to the carbon tax. This paper is a conceptual thought offered as an alternative solution to be employed by the state in ensuring and enhancing the integrity of the financial system built through implementing a carbon tax.
