New Delhi: The International Aluminium Institute (IAI) on Thursday announced the launch of a new initiative that commits to track ambition and progress in reducing Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions by its member companies. This initiative, which is being launched at the United Nations' Climate Change Conference (COP 28) in Dubai, has already been backed by major aluminium producers as the sector continues to act on reducing its greenhouse gas emissions.

Under the new initiative, the IAI is committed to tracking and reporting on its member companies' ambition and progress in greenhouse gas emission reductions and reporting total global greenhouse gas emissions of the aluminium industry on a public and annual basis, the global body said in a statement.
