Gujarat Launches India’s First Trading Programme to Combat Air Pollution
The Air Quality India website's blog section praises the Surat Emissions Trading Scheme as an important step in recognizing the industry's role in controlling particulate emissions
On World Environment Day 2019, Gujrat’s Chief Minister Vijay Rupani launched India’s first trading Programme to combat air pollution. As this year’s world’s environment day theme was Air Pollution, it was an ideal day to launch the Programme which promises to fight against the rising pollution level.
The trading Programme is a market-based system and the government is going to put a stop on industrial emissions. This also means that the same industry will have to buy and sell under the emission cap regulated by the Gujrat Government.
