Mr. Prabhav stressed upon the pressure on organizations to act on decarbonization with increasing demand for transparency and financial implication. He highlighted how carbon foot-printing sits right in the extended value chains (scope 3) of most organizations, but despite that not being in the organization’s direct control, these organizations are committing to ambitious goals in emission reduction targets.
