Program for accelerating climate actions in Indian industry

Need for Net-Zero

Corporate emissions, estimated to comprise around 45% of India's total emissions in FY 2023, are crucial to the government's net-zero strategy, emphasizing the urgent need for their reduction. Anticipated voluntary and regulatory sustainability initiatives are poised to have a notable impact on Indian companies.

SEBI Compliance

Business Responsibility and Sustainability Reporting (BRSR) for India’s top 1000 listed companies.
Trade Regulations

Emissions-related trade regulations are being introduced, such as the Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism.
Indian Carbon Market

The government has introduced a framework for the Carbon Credit Trading Scheme and the Indian Carbon Market.

Corporate Climate Action in India

An analysis of NSE 500 companies indicates the following:

  • 83% of the companies disclosed Scope 1 and 2 emissions, yet only 33% (2023) revealed Scope 3 emissions.
  • Only 25% companies have set a Net-Zero target.

Accelerating corporate climate action is essential to meet India's Net-Zero goal by 2070.
