Launched in March 2012 by WRI India, the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) and The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI), the India GHG Program is a center for excellence on GHG accounting in India. The program promotes a more competitive, profitable and sustainable business environment; broadens engagement between policymakers and the business sector in supporting the overall advancement of national goals; and is creating a pool of adequately trained and certified GHG practitioners, plus measurement and management professionals.

The program aims to help companies in India monitor their progress towards voluntary reduction goals in a consistent and credible manner. It will provide the companies with tools and technical assistance to build inventories, identify reduction opportunities, establish both annual and long-term reduction goals and track their progress based on the GHG Protocol.
