Sustainability Development Goals (SDG)

The UNEP recognizes the multi-faceted contributions of the Biogas industry to various SDGs outlined in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, highlighting its potential to drive sustainable development, mitigate climate change, and improve the well-being of communities worldwide. 

SDG 3: Good Health and Well-being

Biogas projects contribute to improved public health by reducing air and water pollution associated with organic waste decomposition, thus enhancing the well-being of communities.

SDG 7: Affordable and Clean Energy

Biogas production provides a renewable energy source that can replace fossil fuels, contributing to increased access to affordable, reliable, sustainable, and modern energy for all.

SDG 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth

Biogas projects create job opportunities along the value chain, from waste collection to plant operation and maintenance, thereby promoting inclusive economic growth and decent work for all.

SDG 9: Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure

Biogas projects foster innovation and contribute to the development of sustainable infrastructure by providing decentralized energy solutions, especially in rural areas where access to conventional energy sources may be limited.

SDG 12: Responsible Consumption and Production

Biogas projects promote sustainable consumption and production patterns by utilizing organic waste as a feedstock, thus reducing waste generation and promoting resource efficiency.

SDG 13: Climate Action

Biogas production helps mitigate climate change by capturing methane emissions from organic waste and converting them into a usable energy source, thereby reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

SDG 15: Life on Land

Properly managed biogas projects contribute to land restoration and biodiversity conservation by reducing pollution and promoting sustainable land use practices.

Dream big – Inspiring solutions

The Biogas industry has started flourishing and will play an important role in the energy mix of India’s renewable energy portfolio. We at IBA are relentlessly working for the growth and success of the industry. We proudly want to say that we have succeeded with different phases to ensure the sustainable growth of the Biogas industry for the past 8 years. And, we hope to continue doing that for years to come and make our family bigger and make biogas industry a frontrunner of the renewable energy sector.
