Climate Goals: Technology to Net Zero

Global Warming and India’s Action…

 At present, the Earth is 1.1°C warmer than in the 20th century and GHGs emissions are still rising. Increased anthropogenic activities have resulted in increasing GHGs emissions that trap heat in the atmosphere. Different GHGs include carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O), and fluorinated gases like hydrofluorocarbons, perfluorocarbons, etc. Major sources of GHGs emissions are the burning of fossil fuels, their transport, decaying solid waste, and agriculture practices. These emissions needed to be reduced by 45% by 2030 for keeping the temperatures below 1.5°C and to achieve net zero by 2070.

Of all GHGs, methane has important implications for climate change, particularly in the near term. It has a much shorter atmospheric lifetime than CO2 and contributes about one-third of the current anthropogenic GHG-driven warming. With action on climate change becoming increasingly time sensitive, limiting methane offers an important opportunity to achieve rapid results along with other GHGs.

There are many sources of methane such as oil & gas, agriculture, waste, transport, livestocks etc.  It is important to address its emission from an angle of its real needs and global commitment which India has. In the context of national food security, trade and economic prospects, the methane emissions are ‘survival’ emissions and not luxury emissions as many times, it is posed as the main possible reasons of global warming potential.

The global action in GHG emission has witnessed many India specific leaderships which has witnessed largest solar installations, impetus on green hydrogen to name a few. The Government of India has also shown its leadership through different initiatives to reduce methane emissions such as (but not limited to):

Implementation of climatic technologies at the level of facilities, enterprises, and regions will make it viable for future. For example carbon capture from industrial sources can be scaled up through the extended production of green methanol an important biofuel to power ships. Therefore facilitating cooperation among prospective sectors. governing bodies. financial institutions and knowledge partners can uplift these climate technologies for net zero achievement.

The webinar series will focus on mapping methane emissions from the five important target sectors in India including Oil & Gas, Coal Mining and Coalbed, Agriculture, and Livestock, Landfills, and Waste and Transportation. Considering the urgent need of sharing the knowledge and information on methane production among academia, researchers, regulatory bodies, policymakers, industry, business, concerned government departments, and the public at large to learn from each other about the current status of methane release and the processes, methodologies and promising technologies for its elimination from the environment.

To address the above issues, the “Climate Goals: Technology to Net Zero”, webinar series will be organized from September 2022 to April 2023 in different cities to address the issue with the initial “Curtain Raiser” event on September 20, 2022* at Hotel Le Meridian, New Delhi from 1200 to 1430 Hrs (IST). The webinar is organized with the prospective supporting partners SERI, AIILSG, IIM Ahmedabad, IIT Indore, IIT Guwahati, and IIT Bhubaneswar.

The outcome of the webinar series will help the organizers to develop a roadmap on key strategies and action plans to Mitigate Emissions and develop technologies for its energy transition and preventing climate change.

Climate Goals:

Technology to Net Zero

The Climate Goals: Technology to Net Zero webinar proposes to offer a high-level brain storming sessions on GHGs including methane emissions from different sectors.



Awareness on GHGs including methane emission, by highlighting short term andlong – term impacts to policymakers.


Sector specific directions for India on GHGs including methane emissions with anaction plan.


The importance of emission detection and measurement in responsible sectors, as well as developing lonp – term strategies that shall focus on de-carbonization.


Challenges and opportunities in research and development, demonstration, and deployment of technologies in GHGs including methane detection and mitigations in responsible sectors.


The findings that will describe the overall strategy for reducing GHGs including methane emissions across the sectors


Access to Nobel Laureates, Ministry personnel, Industry leaders of different sectors from across the India
