Considering the steady increase in population across the globe, industries are expanding at a rapid pace to cater to their needs. For these industries the basic energy sources are electricity and thermal power which are majorly generated by fossil fuel based power plants or sources which are ultimately responsible for air pollution. Cumulative air pollution is resulting in global warming and to mitigate the same many GHG (Green House Gases) programs have been developed by the various countries and international organizations, as per official data.
 
 
India is also a part of such activities and it has adopted the CDM Program (Clean Development Mechanism). It also has its own Voluntary GHG Mitigation Initiatives similar to the European Union, under Prime Minister's National Action Plan on Climate Change.
