The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) recently expanded its reporting of energy-related carbon dioxide emissions starting in the fall of 2009. This analysis examines the level and drivers of energy-related carbon dioxide emissions in 2009.

The first assessment of the United Nations (UN) system

This study by Centre for Science and Environment of the six most energy-and emissions-intensive sectors of Indian industry shows that low carbon growth is a real challenge after 2020, possibly an illusion by 2030-31.

There are clear signs that China feels challenged to take a quantitative emission cap in a post-Kyoto world and expects developed nations to lead on emission reduction, a view that was clearly expressed by Chinese authorities in Copenhagen. However, we think China carries part of the responsibility of global climate change and is capable to offer more.

Cutting emissions beyond 2020 is tough; land and water needs will create social turmoil

NEW DELHI: Once the low-hanging fruit of energy efficiency technologies has been plucked in order to meet India's 2020 commitment to reduce emissions intensity, the country will find it difficult and expensive to reduce any further, according to a study by the Centre for Science and Environment.

The Centre for nd Environment's Science and Environment's (CSE) landmark study on the cost and feasibility of emissions reduction to combat climate change believes steel will prove to be the problem sector for India.

Water usage to rise 3 times by 2030, land need to soar.

Core sector needs $300-billion investment to cut emission intensity

New Delhi: Indian industry can meet the 2020 emission intensity reduction target but finds it difficult and costly, says a new report. The government has voluntarily committed to cut emission intensity of the GDP by 20-25% by 2020 on a baseline of 2005.
