What are science-based targets and how can companies adopt them?

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) revealed that the impacts of climate change are already widespread. Anthropogenic GHG emissions are responsible for climate change and global warming. IPCC identified the world’s “carbon budget”, which is the total volume of GHGs that can be emitted while providing a degree of confidence that temperature rise will…

Scientist Discover a New Method to curb greenhouse gases

Scientists discovered a new method to convert harmful Greenhouse Gases (GHGs) into chemicals which can produce synthetic fuels on 2 February 2014. A team of researchers at the University of Delaware has developed a highly selective catalyst capable of electrochemically converting carbon dioxide (a greenhouse gas) to carbon monoxide with 92 percent efficiency. The carbon…

Why should the dairy industry manage its carbon emissions?

Increasing Greenhouse Gases (GHG) emissions chiefly due to anthropogenic activities is what leads to climate change. The dairy industry also has a significant share in contributing towards GHG emissions right from the production of milk in farms to its final processing, storage and distribution. The global dairy sector contributes 2.7% to the total global anthropogenic…
