1.1 CPDP achievement

CPDP developers seek to meet a 'climate positive' emissions target of net-negative on-site, operational greenhouse gas emissions. Mahindra World City Jaipur (MWCJ) was one of the sixteen founding projects across the world that partnered and participated in the CPDP. On World Environment Day - 5th June 2015, MWCJ became the first project in Asia to receive Stage 2 Climate Positive Development certification from the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group (C40). In recognition of this milestone, President of the C40 Board and UN Secretary-General's Special Envoy for Cities and Climate Change Michael R. Bloomberg presented a commemorative plaque to Anand Mahindra, Chairman, Mahindra Group at Bloomberg LP in New York City. The Stage 2 Climate Positive recognition is given to those developers who have successfully created detailed plans for how they will reduce energy, waste and transportation related carbon emissions onsite and expand the impact to the surrounding community in order to achieve a Climate Positive outcome.
