The Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) has been entrusted with the development of Indian Carbon Market. BEE held a stakeholder consultation workshop on 19th October, 2022 in New Delhi. This was followed by a draft policy paper on Indian Carbon Market with a proposed scope, market design and governance structure. BEE sought comments from the workshop participants in November 2022. More recently, BEE prepared a draft notification outlining the governance structure of the proposed Carbon Credit Trading Scheme and shared it with a limited set of stakeholders for comments on 27th March, 2023.We appreciate that the BEE is seeking comments from some stakeholders. However, a carbon credit trading scheme has the potential to fundamentally affect all the sectors of the economy and can play a substantial role in India’s efforts to mitigate climate change. Hence, we have suggested in our comments that both the policy documents should be made public so that all the stakeholders including citizens, civil society organizations, academic institutions, industry and others can effectively comment. This will facilitate a robust design of the scheme. We also provided comments on other aspects of the draft documents. The comments provided by Prayas (Energy Group) to BEE on both the documents are available from this page.
