Clean Development Mechanism (CDM)
The purpose of the clean development mechanism (CDM) is defined in Article 12 of the Kyoto Protocol to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. The CDM has a two-fold purpose: (a) to assist developing country Parties in achieving sustainable development, thereby contributing to the ultimate objective of the Convention, and (b) to assist developed country Parties in achieving compliance with part of their quantified emission limitation and reduction commitments under Article 3. Each CDM project activity should meet the above two-fold purpose.
Fossil fuels are the most carbon intensive form of power generation. GPPC is sensitive to the energy-related CO2 emissions. While setting up gas based power plants, GPPC has applied to UNFCCC to avail the CDM benefits.
Lowering our carbon emissions intensity is a time taking process, but GPPC is very sensitive to reduce carbon emissions.

GPPC is committed to setting high standards in corporate social responsibility and attending to project related environment protection, conservation, and enrichment and development of local communities at project site. The company has a simple philosophy that guides its activities in these matters, "Giving back is a means towards going ahead".
