An Indian Civil Society Initiative to Understand India's GHG Emission Estimates

Industry Sector

 

Industry Sector

Industries contribute approximately one fourth of India’s total GHG emissions. The Industrial sector emissions have been developed using a systematic approach of assessing a wide range of fuel consumption, industrial process, and product use from more than two lacs industrial units.

The emissions have been estimated across 16 sub-sectors including chemicals and fertilisers, food and beverages, machinery, metals and mining, textile, etc. The data trend, disaggregated at the sub-sector level, can inform policymakers and industries to improve energy efficiency and emission intensity. Emissions related to captive power generation within the industry have not been accounted, as those get reported under the electricity and energy sector.

The lead sector partner for Industry Sector Emissions Estimates is the Council on Energy, Environment and Water.
