India is committed to contributing to the global low carbon growth agenda. By 2030, India intends to reduce the emissions intensity of its GDP by 33% to 35% from 2005 levels by focusing on diversifying and growing its energy portfolio to reduce its carbon emissions and support the sustainable growth of the economy.

India is committed to contributing to the global low carbon growth agenda. By 2030, India intends to reduce the emissions intensity of its GDP by 33% to 35% from 2005 levels by focusing on diversifying and growing its energy portfolio to reduce its carbon emissions and support the sustainable growth of the economy.

India, through the Paris Climate Agreement in 2015, made a commitment to reduce its emissions intensity of GDP (kg CO2/INR) by 33–35% in 2030, over the 2005 levels (GoI, 2015).

Five years from the initial launch of the International Energy Agency's (IEA) first ever country specific low carbon technology roadmap (LCTR), the Cement Sustainability Initiative (CSI) and IEA collaborated again, working with nine CSI member companies in India (ACC, Ambuja Cements, CRH, Dalmia Cement (Bharat), HeidelbergCement, Orient Cement,

The University of Cape Town’s Energy Research Centre (ERC) last week issued a report looking into the intensity of emissions in the power sector across the G20 countries.

This report assesses how far the G20 countries have progressed in their transition from a “brown” economy based on fossil fuels to a “green” low-carbon and climate resilient economy. Collectively, the G20 needs roughly to halve emissions in 2030 to meet the Paris goals, but adequate long-term strategies to do so are still lacking.

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
