Green Credit Program for incentivise Eco-Friendly Actions

To advance the 'LiFE' - 'Lifestyle for Environment' initiative, the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change launched the Green Credit Program (GCP) in October 2023. This national endeavor aims to tackle climate change, promote sustainability, and encourage eco-conscious practices.

The 'LiFE' initiative, introduced by the Government of India, is a grassroots, widespread movement focusing on the protection and conservation of the environment. It seeks to achieve environmental and climate benefits by fostering actions that promote a healthy and sustainable lifestyle based on traditions and values of conservation and moderation. This initiative also aims for sustainable and environmentally friendly development.

Green Credit Program operates independently of the carbon credit system established by the Carbon Credit Trading Scheme, 2023, under the Energy Conservation Act, 2001 (52 of 2001). While an environmental activity generating green credit may have climate co-benefits, such as carbon emissions reduction or removal, the Green Credit Program allows for the recognition of such activities separately, emphasizing the potential dual benefits of generating both green and carbon credits from the same activity.

What are the Objectives of the Green Credit Programe

  • The eco-friendly credit initiative aims to encourage environmentally beneficial behaviours using a market-driven approach, resulting in the creation of tradable green credits. These credits can be traded on a local market platform. 
  • The acquisition of green credits is contingent upon individuals undertaking eco-friendly activities outlined in sub-rule (2) of rule 4. 
  • The program seeks to motivate industries, companies, and other entities to fulfil their current legal obligations and obligations under prevailing laws. 
  • Furthermore, it encourages individuals and entities to voluntarily engage in environmentally beneficial actions specified in rule 4 by either generating or purchasing green credits.


What is the Aim of Implementing the Green Credit Programe

Here are some main features of the Green Credit Program that have been discussed below:

  • Green credit programs often aim to contribute to efforts in mitigating climate change. By providing financial support to projects and activities that reduce greenhouse gas emissions or enhance carbon sequestration, these programs align with broader climate action goals.
  • The program may seek to fund initiatives that contribute to the protection and conservation of the environment. This could include projects related to biodiversity conservation, habitat restoration, and sustainable land use practices.
  • Green credit initiatives are designed to incentivize and support businesses and individuals in adopting sustainable practices. This may involve investments in renewable energy, energy efficiency, waste management, and other eco-friendly technologies.
  • Many green credit programs aim to involve communities and individuals at the grassroots level. By promoting awareness and encouraging active participation in environmental conservation, these programs can have a broad and more lasting impact.
  • Supporting green projects through credit programs can contribute to the creation of jobs in the green and sustainable sectors. This can help stimulate economic growth while promoting environmentally friendly practices.
  • Green credit programs are often aligned with a country's broader sustainability goals. By providing financial support and incentives, governments aim to accelerate the transition to a more sustainable and environmentally friendly economy.
