Key Findings

  • We find that the 50 Indian companies, representing about 35 percent of India’s industrial sector emissions, included in this analysis can reduce their GHG emissions by 5.76 percent in 2020 and by 13.04 percent in 2030 through their existing voluntary climate commitments, relative to their emissions in the Reference Scenario.
  • We find that the existing voluntary climate commitments of the 50 Indian companies can lead to a reduction of 1.74 to 1.95 percent in India’s aggregate GHG emissions in 2030 over and above national emissions projections that consider existing climate policies.
  • We find that heavy industries such as Metals, Pulp & Paper, and Cement drive over 90 percent of the overall emissions reduction, despite their less ambitious emissions reduction targets on average, as compared to other sectors.
