According to a PwC analysis, by 2050, carbon emission in Brazil will have gone down by 79 percent from the 5.4 percent it recorded since 2000, and India will have cut off its carbon emission by 20-25 percent in 2020 as targeted by its government.
PwC’s analysis, Low Carbon Economy Index, covered a 50-year ‘carbon budget’ for the G20 countries that aims to answer IPCC’s targeted greenhouse gas stabilization, including a combination of their GDP and emissions growth rates.
PwC noted how Brazil remained on top of the other G20 countries in terms of reducing carbon emission (also called carbon intensity levels that serve as emission ratios to GDP). The analysis generally measures the length of years the G20 countries would spend in their campaign against carbon emission until 2050.
….India, on the other hand, has managed to maintain a low carbon emission per capita by improving energy efficiency, maximizing renewable energy and reforming land and forestry practices. This is, however, challenged by India’s growing economy and population, and so it is developing a national ‘mission’ to achieve this.
