Highlights:

The emission list was ratified by India ahead of the start of the 26th United Nations Conference of Parties (COP) in Glasgow, Scotland.

The goal of the Emission List was to emphasize the discrepancy in emissions between industrialized and poor countries.

On the one hand, developed countries such as the United States, Australia, Canada, and Western Europe have a net carbon debt, while developing countries such as India and China have a net carbon credit.
