Carbon footprint mapping for quantification and reporting of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and removals in the Nagpur Metropolitan Area
EMC was contracted by Halcrow Consulting India Ltd. to undertake carbon footprint (CF) mapping for quantification and reporting of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and removal in the Nagpur Metropolitan Area (NMA) in line with the international best practices. In developing the CF principles and methods developed by the IPCC and guidelines prescribed by the Ministry of Environment and Forests (MoEF)/ Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE), wherever applicable were adhered to. Such an assessment at the city level following a graded approach was carried out for the first time in India. The result of such a mapping provided input to the peri-urban transportation network of Nagpur city.
