India is not only meeting the targets of the Paris Agreement, but is also exceeding them, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said at the G20 summit held virtually on Sunday.

In his speech at the G-20 summit side event, “Safeguarding the Planet – The Circular Approach to the Carbon Economy”, he said India had taken concrete steps in many areas to a clean climate.

“We made LED lights popular. This saves 38 million tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions per year. Smoke-free kitchens have been provided to over 80 million homes through our Ujjwala program. This is one of the largest clean energy projects in the world, ”the prime minister told member countries.

Climate change, he said, must be tackled not in isolation but in an integrated, comprehensive and holistic way. “Inspired by our traditional philosophy of living in harmony with the environment and my government’s commitment, India has adopted low-carbon and climate-resilient development practices,” Modi said.

Giving details of his government’s efforts, he highlighted the campaign to phase out single-use plastics. “Our forest cover is expanding; the lion and tiger population is increasing; we aim to restore 26 million hectares of degraded land by 2030; and we are promoting a circular economy.”

India is manufacturing next-generation infrastructure such as metro networks, waterways and more, he said. Besides their convenience and efficiency, they will also contribute to a cleaner environment.

The Prime Minister assured that India will reach its target of 175 Giga Watts of renewable energy well ahead of the 2022 target. “Now we are taking a big step forward in seeking to reach 450 Giga Watts by 2030. “

The International Solar Alliance is one of the fastest growing international organizations, with 88 signatories. With plans to mobilize billions of dollars, train thousands of actors, and promote research and development in renewable energy, ISA will help reduce the carbon footprint.

The Coalition for Disaster Resilient Infrastructure (CDRI) – 18 countries – including 9 from the G20 and 4 international organizations – has already started working on increasing the resilience of critical infrastructure to prevent damage during natural disasters.

Now is the best time to further increase research and innovation in new and sustainable technologies, the prime minister said. “We have to do this in a spirit of cooperation and collaboration. The whole world can move faster if developing countries support more technology and finance.”

For humanity to prosper, each individual must prosper, he said. Rather than seeing work as a single factor of production, the emphasis should be on the human dignity of each worker. Such an approach would be the best guarantee for the safeguard of our planet, added the Prime Minister.
