About Us

CarbonCopy is a knowledge platform that tracks developments in the climate and energy sector. We publish a subscriber-based newsletter every fortnight which is focused on India’s climate and energy news and developments.

In addition to this, we curate content from guest authors and experts, as well as publish original content that covers developments in the climate change landscape. We seek to underscore perspectives originating in India and the Global South, and our coverage is guided by public interest and rationality.

CarbonCopy is supported by Climate Trends, an agency that works towards simplifying complex environmental issues through research, communication and capacity-building.


Carbon Copy accepts pitches on issues pertaining to climate, energy and air pollution. Ideas can be sent to editor@carboncopy.info
