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

The cement sector is the third-largest industrial energy consumer and the second-largest industrial CO2 emitter globally.

China met its 2020 carbon intensity target three years ahead of schedule last year, the official Xinhua news agency reported on Tuesday, citing the country's top climate official Xie Zhenhua.

Global rating agency Moody's today said that Indian steel industry is yet to introduce more stringent emission regulations, and an increase in coal usage poses a serious limitation to the potential

This policy update provides a summary of Canada’s proposed federal clean fuel standard (CFS) policy structure based on proposals and the framework document from Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC), as well as discussion of the potential impacts of not addressing indirect land-use change (ILUC).

Placing Asian economies onto a sustainable development pathway requires an unprecedented shift in investment away from greenhouse gas, fossil fuel, and natural resource-intensive industries toward more resource-efficient technologies and business models. The financial sector will have to play a central role in this green transformation.

Develop the concept of aggregate emission targets, which are goals for national emissions but do not dictate the forms of regulation used to achieve the goals. Compare aggregate emission intensity, quantity, and price targets adopted at the national level but implemented cost effectively at the

In a new study, Ecofys, has analysed what role gas and gas infrastructure can play in a zero greenhouse gas emissions energy system by 2050. The study, launched by the Gas for Climate initiative, shows that renewable gas can play an important role in reducing Europe’s greenhouse gas emissions to net-zero by mid-century.

The introduction of the first generation of biofuels made from food crops has been controversial largely due to concerns over competition for land with food crops, thus raising global crop prices and generating induced land-use change (ILUC).

Improving the productivity of livestock production can have a significant impact on the emissions intensities of greenhouse gases (GHGs) from domestic animals in East Africa, and can help to address the challenges of meeting a growing demand for animal protein within the region.
