This paper presents the results of a systematic literature review of greenhouse gas emissions for different food categories from life cycle assessment (LCA) studies, to enable streamline calculations that could inform dietary choice. The motivation for completing the paper was the inadequate synthesis of food greenhouse gas emissions available in the public domain. The paper reviewed 369 published studies that provided 1718 global warming potential (GWP) values for 168 varieties of fresh produce.

Question raised in Rajya Sabha on Tackling green gas emission, 05/12/2016. As per voluntary domestic goal announced in 2009, India had pledged to reduce the emission intensity of its Gross Domestic Product (GDP) by 20 to 25 % from 2005 levels by 2020. A slew of policy measures were launched to achieve this goal.

Question raised in Rajya Sabha on Global Warming due to HFC-23, 05/12/2016. Hydrofluorocarbon – 23 (HFC-23) or Trifluoromethane, is a by-product produced during the manufacture of Hydrochlorofluorocarbon – 22 (HCFC – 22), a refrigerant gas. HFC-23 is one of the potent greenhouse gases, having Global Warming Potential of 14,800.

Following the 2016 entry into force of the Paris Agreement, governments are now expected to turn their greenhouse gas emissions pledges into concrete climate policies.

GGGI published a report titled, ‘Bridging the Policy and Investment Gap for Payment for Ecosystem Services: Learning from the Costa Rican Experience and Roads Ahead’. This report provides findings based on the Costa Rican experiences that are beneficial for countries around the world implementing Payment for Ecosystem Services (PES) schemes.

States and regions are driving climate action toward a below 2 degrees Celsius world, but more and long-term ambition is needed to achieve this bold goal – the new Compact of States and Regions Disclosure report shows.

The Dutch government on Wednesday proposed a 33 percent increase in its budget for renewable energy projects in 2017, as it attempts to catch up after lagging on its 2020 emission reduction targets

EU regulators plan to attach emissions limits to subsidies paid to utilities that set aside capacity to avert blackouts, an EU source told Reuters.

The U.S.

Canada will require reduced carbon footprints for all fuels so that the country can achieve a 30-megatonne cut in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030, the country's environment department said on Frid
