NCCF’s Carbon Registry –India goes live on this World Ozone Day, 16th September 2021
The UN General Assembly in the year 1994, proclaimed 16th September as the “International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer”, commemorating the date of the signing, in 1987, of the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer. The theme for this year is “Montreal Protocol – Keeping us, our food, and vaccines cool”. It seeks to highlight, the importance of the Montreal Protocol in slowing climate change and helping to boost energy efficiency in the cooling sector, which also contributes to food security. The day is celebrated every year to spread awareness among people about the
adverse impacts of Ozone Layer depletion and to find possible solutions to preserve it.
NCCF, a society of experts and professionals is involved in the development of sustainability norms and standards for certification of our natural resources. The UNCCD has given us Observer Status, thereby, keeping us in step with the climate change processes being promoted multilaterally, pertaining both to mitigation and adaptation.
A crucial initiative taken by NCCF in this regard is Carbon Registry- India (CR-I )(www.cri.nccf.in) which is a significant endeavor to bring forth a voluntary carbon credit generation and tracking platform for verified net Green House Gases emissions, reductions, and removals enhancement with Sustainable Development Contributions. It is going live today, as World Ozone Day offers a fortuity to focus global attention and action on this vital environmental concern. This India Centric voluntary carbon offset market mechanism will abet in accomplishing NCCF’s earnest ambition of combating global climatic variation and its impacts by utilizing the strength and resources of domestic and global environmental markets.
On this World Ozone Day, NCCF reiterates its commitment to promote sustainable management of natural resources through certification as an important tool of management and wishes to continue its dedication, hard work, and steadfast commitment to meeting India’s International commitments.
