India’s CO2 emissions forecast to increase by 6.3% this year

Katowice, Poland: Aggressive push for renewable energy and other low-carbon technologies notwithstanding, India’s carbon dioxide emissions are projected to rise by as much as 6.3% in 2018. The 2018 Global Carbon Project report attributes this increase to strong economic growth of around 8% per year. 

The government will need to step up its climate policy if it is to slowdown growth in emissions while maintaining economic growth. 

Global carbon dioxide emissions, according to the report, are on track to rise by more than 2% in 2018 on the back of renewed use of coal and continued growth in oil and gas use. 

Other top emitters—the US and China—have also registered an increase in carbon dioxide emissions— 2.5% and 4.7%, respectively. 

While the European Union, the third-largest emitter, is projected to register a small -0.7% fall in 2018. 

However, that is well below the declines of -2% per year sustained in the decade up to 2014.
