Chapter 4: Carbon performance of select energy intensive companies in India: a content analysis approach
Climate change and its ramifications have made it necessary for the global economy to transit to a low-carbon economy characterized by constraints on greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. In this transition, business firms have a primary role to play by assuming greater environmental responsibility and by adopting a variety of low-carbon activities and strategies. Using publicly available information, this study explores the carbon performance of select energy-intensive companies in India spanning different industries. The range of distinct and diverse low-carbon measures and strategies being adopted by these companies have been identified using content analysis. Employing content analysis on information contained in companies’ websites, annual reports, and sustainability reports to various agencies, we cluster their low-carbon measure into broader low-carbon strategies based on the objectives being pursued.
