MSMEs can play a significant role in driving energy transition to a more sustainable and equitable future. The MSME Toolkit is a unique and comprehensive platform created in line with the CII Climate Action Charter (CCAC). The toolkit provides MSMEs with a platform for assessing their vulnerability to climate-related hazards, raising awareness, and developing short- and long-term resilience measures. The toolkit helps in GHG footprinting through an easy-to-use tool for calculating Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions, allowing MSMEs to assess their carbon footprint and take appropriate mitigation measures across different scopes. The toolkit also addresses the climate-related risks that Indian MSMEs face by taking a comprehensive and collaborative approach.
The toolkit enables MSMEs to take ownership of their climate action transition by mapping climate change as a material risk across their value chains. It allows them to build resilience, develop sustainable practices and showcase best practices. The toolkit promotes a collective assessment of climate-related vulnerabilities, with a focus on collaboratively finding solutions for a just, equitable, and resilient transition.
