India is leading the race for mitigation of carbon emission and is setting an example for the whole world in fighting global warming with its various clean energy efforts, Harsh Vardhan, Union Minister for Environment and Science and Technology, said.

The minister was speaking post the inauguration ceremony of ‘Atal Complex for International Training Centre for Operational Oceanography’ (ITCOocean).

“…in all these activities which will directly contribute to mitigation and adaptation efforts and handling climate change and global warming for the whole world, India’s example is being emulated and shall be emulated and it will be an inspiratory example for rest of the whole world,” he mentioned.

India has been able to fulfill a substantial portion of its climate commitment to the world and has been successful “handling our nationally determined contributions” much before the deadline, he said.

“We are probably one of the few countries which are moving so fast, so speedily and then for all our future targets…for having 40 per cent share of clean energy in our energy requirements by 2030, having all those electric vehicles, 100 per cent electric vehicles by 2030, I think in all these and then BS IV to BS VI by 2020, in all these activities…,” he said.

The objectives and the missions which PM Narendra Modi launched at the Paris global warming and climate change meeting at COP are being praised by the whole world, Vardhan observed.

Harsh Vardhan also cited the lead India has taken in launching the International Solar Alliance.
