New Delhi, Dec 26 (ANI): India has implemented a massive range of initiatives that mitigate climate change, from making the world’s largest railroad company the world’s net-zero by 2030, to cutting 40 billion tonnes of emissions from LEDs, which it unveiled at the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Glasgow tomorrow.

India would become carbon neutral, producing net-zero emissions by 2070th Year 2070.

In a statement, as India joined the “High-Level Segment for Heads of States and Government” at the United Nations’ COP26 climate conference in Glasgow, United Kingdom, the Prime Minister says India is “hard on solving climate change-related problems.

India has also committed to meeting 50% of its energy needs with a focus on renewables by 2030.

But even today, the whole world acknowledges that India is the only large economy to have enacted the Paris agreement in letter and spirit.

The whole world can’t achieve more modern targets through old objectives of climate finance.

One potentially major development derived from COP26 (but outside the COP process) is the Glasgow Breakthrough Agenda, which is backed by 42 countries (India’s among them).

The Prime Minister also called on industrialised countries to set aside $1 trillion for climate finance.
