Emission Intensity Tracking on the road to COP 26

India is not only on track to meet its Nationally Determined Commitment (to reduce the emission intensity of its GDP by 33 to 35 per cent below 2005 levels by 2030) but may even exceed the commitment and achieve a reduction of 39–40 per cent if the current rate of annual decline is extrapolated by a moderate 1 per cent. However, the rate of growth in sectoral emissions is increasing and there could be a situation where the reduction in terms of intensity may start to decline.
