How to cut CO2 emissions worldwide: Lessons from India’s LiFE

If all countries adopted the measures recommended by LiFE, we would achieve 20% of the CO2 emission reductions needed to put the world on a net-zero pathway

Improving energy efficiency and changing our habits and lifestyle will play a crucial role in attaining the Paris agreement target. Moreover, they will make the world’s energy use more sustainable. That is why we need initiatives along these lines, such as the Indian Lifestyle for Environment (LiFE) initiative. LiFE is an important platform that could help lower:

1. Energy costs.

2. Carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.

3. Air pollution.

4. Inequalities in energy consumption. 

According to a new report by the International Energy Agency, if all countries adopted the kind of measures recommended by LiFE, they would reduce global CO2 emissions by more than 2 billion tons by 2030. This alone would be equivalent to one-fifth of the emissions reductions needed this decade to put the world on a net-zero emissions pathway. Therefore, this is good news for meeting our climate change goals!

In addition, the measures would also save consumers around the world some $440 billion in annual energy bills and reduce inequalities in per capita energy consumption between advanced economies and the rest of the world.
