Question raised in Rajya Sabha on Tackling green gas emission, 05/12/2016. As per voluntary domestic goal announced in 2009, India had pledged to reduce the emission intensity of its Gross Domestic Product (GDP) by 20 to 25 % from 2005 levels by 2020. A slew of policy measures were launched to achieve this goal.

Canada will require reduced carbon footprints for all fuels so that the country can achieve a 30-megatonne cut in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030, the country's environment department said on Frid

Rather than examining aggregate emissions trends, this study delves deep into the dynamics affecting each sector of the EU energy system. It examines the structural changes taking place in power production, transport, buildings and industry, and benchmarks these with the changes required to reach the 2030 and 2050 targets.

A new IEA publication highlights the critical role that carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies can play in meeting the climate goals set out in the Paris Agreement.

As the threat of climate change looms, the world must transition to cleaner energy and avoid burning most fossil fuels. Coal is of particular concern, accounting for two fifths

The dairy sector will soon be able to participate in international carbon credit markets thanks to a new methodology that lets farmers and project designers reliably document how they are reducing harmful greenhouse gas emissions - a step that will open up new sources of finance for the livestock industry and help promote investment in smallhold

In view of rising energy demand and uncertainty in power tariffs, the Indian Railways has identified the need for an aggressive push towards alternate fuels in the Indian Railways as well as identify potential opportunities for energy savings and realise a cost-effective energy system with least environmental impact.

As many countries are increasing commitments to address climate change, national governments are exploring how they could best reduce the impact of their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Agriculture is a major contributor to GHG emissions, especially in developing countries, where this sector accounts for an average of 35% of all GHG emissions.

The latest Low Carbon Economy Index report from PwC has revealed that China led the way in decreasing its carbon intensity during 2015, in a year which saw global carbon intensity drop by 2.8%, double the average fall of 1.3%.

In recognition of the fundamental importance of understanding energy related environmental issues, the IEA’s CO2 Emissions from Fuel Combustion provides a full analysis of emissions stemming from energy use.
