India Endorsed Emission List


India has officially endorsed a website created by Indian climate specialists that list industrialized countries’ historical carbon dioxide emissions.


The emission list was ratified by India ahead of the start of the 26th United Nations Conference of Parties (COP) in Glasgow, Scotland.

The goal of the Emission List was to emphasize the discrepancy in emissions between industrialized and poor countries.

On the one hand, developed countries such as the United States, Australia, Canada, and Western Europe have a net carbon debt, while developing countries such as India and China have a net carbon credit.

As a result, the database emphasizes that industrialized countries should commit to more stringent emission reduction targets than emerging countries.
