Why in News

A recent report released by the Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) mentions that the Perform, Achieve and Trade (PAT) scheme introduced in 2008 is not effective.

  • The PAT scheme was introduced to improve energy efficiency in Indian industries and consequently reduce greenhouse gas.
  • The report attributed the inefficiency of the scheme to non-transparency, unfastened targets and neglected deadlines.

Centre for Science and Environment (CSE)

  • CSE is a public interest research and advocacy organisation based in New Delhi.
  • It researches into, lobbies for and communicates the urgency of development that is both sustainable and equitable.

Key Points

Way Forward

The energy reduction target should be made stringent in order to meet up with the global climate commitments with respect to greenhouse gas emission mitigation.
