The Government of Punjab’s Department of Industry & Commerce and the Department of Science, Technology & Environment is partnering with the Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab (J-PAL) South Asia and the Energy Policy Institute at the University of Chicago (EPIC India) to launch the use of an Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) to tackle growing industrial air pollution in Punjab.
To reduce particulate and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the state, the Government of Punjab and the Punjab Pollution Control Board (PPCB) will launch an ETS to regulate emissions from 200 dyeing industries in Ludhiana as the first step in this partnership.
