PM Modi reveals India’s ambitious net zero target and green initiatives at G20 Climate Meet
On Friday (July 28), Prime Minister Narendra Modi spoke to the G20 Environment and Climate Sustainability Ministerial Conference through a video call. He showed how much he cares about the environment and animals. PM Modi said that India is one of the top five countries in the world that use renewable energy sources like wind and solar power. He also said that India has a tough goal of stopping its greenhouse gas emissions by 2070.
In his address, PM Modi said, “Today, India is one of the top 5 countries in the world in terms of installed renewable energy capacity. We have also set a target of attaining net zero by 2070. We continue to collaborate with our partners through our alliance including the international solar alliance, CDRI, and the leadership group for industry transition. India has consistently been at the forefront of taking action on biodiversity conservation, protection, and enrichment.”
India’s fast progress in renewable energy shows the country’s dedication to fighting global warming and embracing cleaner energy options. A crucial move towards a greener future is India’s ambitious goal of achieving net-zero emissions by 2070.
Furthermore, India’s commitment to wildlife protection is evident through the creation of the international Big Cat Alliance. Inspired by the successful Project Tiger, this initiative aims to safeguard seven iconic big cat species found worldwide.
India’s conservation efforts have established an outstanding paradigm for the protection of these gorgeous animals because an incredible 70% of the world’s tigers are found within its boundaries.
“India has recently launched the international Big Cat Alliance for the conservation of 7 big cats on our planet. It is based on our learnings from Project Tiger, a pioneering conservation initiative. As a result of Project Tiger, 70% of the world’s tigers are found in India. We are also working on Project Lion and Project Dolphin,” PM Modi said.
India’s environmental pledges and animal conservation initiatives serve as an inspiration for international action toward a sustainable and peaceful future as the globe fights environmental dangers. India reinforces its position as a responsible and proactive leader in environmental preservation through its committed actions and partnerships.
