About Us

CarbonCopy is a media portal that tracks developments in the climate and energy sector. We publish a subscriber-based newsletter – ‘Climate Fortnightly’ – 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 international developments from an Indian perspective.

We are supported by Climate Trends, an agency that works towards simplifying complex environmental issues through research and communications.


Carbon Copy has now begun accepting pitches for reportage, news and analysis on issues pertaining to climate, energy and air pollution. Story ideas and pitches can be submitted to editor@carboncopy.info
