It’s a sign of the country’s increasing eco-awareness. A recent voluntary carbon emissions disclosure programme had 51 companies participating, of which more than 40 per cent were from Maharashtra.
In its second year in India, the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) has partnered with the Confideration of Indian Industries (CII) and WWF India to administer an eight-page questionnaire about the companies’ stand on climate change, their policies and finally, an accounting of their greenhouse gas emissions.
City-based Thermax industries was part of the project, and voluntarily provided information on its carbon output.
Cummins India Ltd was also a part of the survey. M&M, Zee Entertainment Enterprises, Tata Motors, Tata Consultancy Services and Godrej Consumer Products are some of the other companies from Maharashtra that provided comprehensive carbon-emissions data to the CDP.
