Abstract

Global warming has a direct relationship with industrial development and dates back to the industrial revolution. There has been a marked increase in the emission of greenhouse gases (mainly carbon dioxide), in proportion to industrial expansion. Over the past 100 years the average global temperature has been increasing at a faster rate due to the rapid emission of greenhouse gases. The major contributors in terms of carbon emissions are China with 6.2 billion tonnes per annum followed by the US with 6 billion tonnes. Russia and India share third and fourth place with 1.5 and 1.34 billion tonnes respectively. It is estimated that India will surpass Russia by 2015. Although the developed countries are the major polluters they have resolved their emission problems to a large extent by exporting polluting sectors to developing countries. The biggest barriers in cutting emissions in developing countries like India are lack of awareness, technological barriers, and investment bottlenecks. However, global warming / climate change is not just a threat but also has huge prospects for green businesses in developing countries like India through the sale of certified emission reductions units. But how far Indian companies will make use of this opportunity is the big question.
