Conducting Training Needs Assessment, Developing Module and Guidebook for Training Officials from Public Sector Enterprises on Climate Change, Carbon Markets, Carbon Finance and Carbon Pricing

Background:

According to India’s second Biennial Update Report (BUR) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) India emitted 2607.49 million tonnes CO2e (excluding LULUCF) and 2306.3 million tonnes CO2e (including LULUCF) in 2014. Out of the total emissions, the energy sector accounted for 73% and Industrial Processes and Product Use (IPPU) accounted for 8%. To meet the Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) target of reducing emission intensity of the economy by 33-35% by 2030 compared to 2005 requires efforts across sectors particularly in the industry. Perform Achieve and Trade (PAT) and Renewable Energy Certificates (REC) mechanism are some of the key mechanisms for reducing industrial emission intensity. Public Sector Enterprises (PSEs) are companies with not less than 51% of the paid-up share capital held by either central or state government. The sectors covered by PSEs include sectors like banking, insurance, petroleum, mining, power generation, power transmission, heavy engineering, aviation, storage and public distribution, shipping and trading, steel etc. Considering the significant presence of PSEs in the economy it is critical that these enterprises also contribute to climate action in India.
