India’s emission trading scheme (ETS), dubbed the Carbon Credit and Trading Scheme (CCTS), passed into legislation last year. CCTS will be an extremely important policy instrument in the path to reach net zero in 2070 because it essentially incentivises industrial entities to reduce emissions.

CEEW's effort towards engaging relevant stakeholders in the preparatory phase prior to the establishment of the Indian Carbon Market (ICM) have shown that there is a limited understanding of an Emission Trading System (ETS) among Indian stakeholders and the importance of consistent engagement through capacity-building exercises.

To address the myriad challenges posed by global climate change, countries at all income levels have put in place a diverse set of policies over the past three decades.

The Global CCS Institute’s latest thought leadership report, which evaluates the role of CCUS in supporting India’s climate ambitions, highlights the authorisation of India’s carbon credits trading scheme, and assesses the release of the Indian government’s detailed report on CCUS.

This tool kit offers a step-by-step guide for economies in Asia and the Pacific looking to design, build, and implement emission trading systems (ETS) to help speed up their transition to a greener, more inclusive future.

This paper investigates the potential role and contribution of carbon pricing in transforming emission pathways towards net zero GHG emissions. It reviews carbon pricing’s impacts, overall and in the electricity sector in selected jurisdictions to date. The paper also analyses the current and potential application of emissions pricing (e.g.

This report provides an up-to-date overview of existing and emerging carbon pricing instruments around the world, including international, national and subnational initiatives. It also investigates trends surrounding the development and implementation of carbon pricing instruments and some of the drivers seen over the past year.

The Government of India has passed an amendment to the Energy Conservation Act 2001, which lays the foundation for the Indian Carbon Market. Under this backdrop, CEEW conducted an industry stakeholder discussion to understand their concerns and perspectives.

This report focuses on carbon pricing as one policy strand used to tackle global GHG emissions. It gives an overview of implemented and forthcoming domestic and cross-border carbon pricing mechanisms, as well as their implications for GHG emissions, international trade and development.

This report shows how efficient carbon pricing instruments can enable countries in Asia and the Pacific region to accelerate their transition to affordable, secure low-carbon energy systems and help reach their ambitious climate targets.
