New Environmental Norms for the Power Sector: Proceedings and Recommendations
In December 2015, the Ministry of Environment, Forest & Climate Change (MoEF&CC) announced tighter standards for coal-based thermal power plants. Centre for Science and Environment’s (CSE) preliminary survey of power companies and manufacturers revealed, however, that little progress has been made towards the implementation. CSE felt it would be important to invite key stakeholders to share and address the issues to push the implementation of revised environmental standards. Accordingly, it organized a conference on ‘New Environmental Norms: The Way Forward’ on 7 September 2016.
