Analyzing Enablers of Emission Reduction Strategies of Cement-manufacturing Industry of India under Fuzzy Environment
Cement production is the most emission-intensive industry. The Indian cement industry is the second-largest greenhouse gas emitter. Continuous emissions are responsible for global warming and extreme climate change. The cement industry is currently under pressure to reduce emissions. Therefore, we seek to evaluate the enablers of emission reduction strategies of Indian cement industry. In the present study, fuzzy AHP is used to assess the enablers of emission reduction strategies of cement industry. The FAHP helps in establishing the priorities of the enablers of emission reduction strategies. According to the study outcomes, there are 17 enablers related to emission reduction practices. FAHP analysis showed that enabling factors: Litigation risk, health issue, local public or societal pressure for emission reduction, cut in subsidies and increased taxes on fossil fuels and demand for low-carbon product are on top priority as per global rank.
