PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) Low Carbon Economy Index (LCEI) 2018 finds that national decarbonization rates do not match the level needed to achieve commitments under the Paris Agreement on climate change.

India currently ranks as one of the top energy consumers in the world. With India’s population and GDP expected to grow in the future, energy demand will see a significant rise and with that associated greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions as well.

CO2 Emissions from Fuel Combustion 2018 provides comprehensive estimates of CO2 emissions from fuel combustion across the world and across the sectors of the global economy. This 2018 edition includes data from 1971 to 2016 for more than 150 countries and regions worldwide, by sector and by fuel; as well as a number of CO2-related indicators.

Facebook, in an attempt to combat climate change, has announced that it is deducting its greenhouse gas emission by 75 per cent and is working on making its operations run on 100 per cent renewable

Climate change could cost India 2.8 per cent of GDP, and lower living standards of nearly half of its population by 2050, as average annual temperatures are expected to rise by 1-2 per cent over three decades, warns this new report released by the World Bank

A significant amount of the final energy demand of the manufacturing industry is in providing heating and cooling to processes and buildings. Renewable heating and cooling (RHC) technologies are one way to reduce the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions associated with the generation of this heating and cooling demand.

A new Chatham House report argues that significant changes in how cement and concrete are produced and used are urgently needed if we are to achieve deep cuts in emissions in line with the Paris Agreement on climate change.

Reusing plastic and metal could help keep global warming below 2 degrees Celsius and allow the EU to go emission free by 2050, according to new research on the burgeoning circular economy.

The time has come to get serious about decarbonising the emission-intensive materials sector. The production of basic materials (cement, iron and steel, paper and board, aluminium and chemicals and petrochemicals) accounted for around 25% of global CO2 emissions in 2014 (Figure 1).

The rise of renewable sources of energy and their gallant victories over fossil fuels — particularly coal — is now legendary.
