The urgency to combat the dire consequences of global warming has elevated the imperative of achieving net-zero greenhouse gas emissions. However, despite various industries looking for ways to opt for sustainable development and pledging to be carbon-neutral by 2040, they are not well aware of the systematic processes to foster sustainability. The lack of awareness around carbon emission and its impact is also coupled with the need for effectual solutions or technologies to calibrate and record carbon footprints accurately. This ensures that business companies can infuse vitality into their sustainability endeavours to the extent of their potential. In this critical context, the World of Circular Economy (WOCE) emerges as a pivotal player, aiming to bridge the chasm between carbon-neutral pledges and actionable steps. With its array of services and solutions, WOCE is poised to address the gap between intent and action, particularly in the context of India's intricate carbon scenario.

Indias Complex Carbon Scenario
While certain countries contribute disproportionately to the global carbon crisis, India stands as a unique case. Despite relatively low per capita CO2 emissions (1.8 tons), India ranks as the third-largest emitter of 2.9 gigatons of CO2 equivalent annually. The emissions primarily originate from sectors like power, steel, automotive, aviation, cement, and agriculture. India's commitments at COP27, including a 45 percent reduction in emissions intensity from 2005 levels by 2030 and generating 50 percent of its power from non-fossil fuel sources, illustrate its dedication. Additionally, the ambitious goals set at COP26 further
highlight India's commitment to a net zero future by 2070.

WOCE's Strategic Role in India's Journey

The organization's holistic approach encompasses advisory services, a diverse product portfolio, and global carbon solutions.
