Speaking on the sustainability, The Energy Research Institute (TERI), Director General, Dr Ajay Mathur said, “India has done well on the sustainability front and we have seen that the actions that are being taken are not only good for the environment it translates to more jobs, better income and cleaner society.”

“While we are doing well we need to accelerate, like we did well with LED technology we now need to look at renewables beyond light bulbs,” said Dr Arunabha Ghosh, Chief Executive Officer, Council on Energy, Environment & Water (CEEW).

Reiterating this, Anirban Ghosh, Chief Sustainability Officer, Mahindra Group, said, “In spite of the many challenges, India is a conscious, responsible member of the world order. The government and corporations in the country have taken exemplary action and are now counted amongst the leaders when it comes to fighting climate change. The time now is to step up this ambition.”

The discussion also focussed on the corporate contribution. One of the significant recognition of Indian corporates’ intent and action is the invitation to Anand Mahindra, Chairman, Mahindra Group as co-chair of the Global Climate Action Summit (GCAS) to be held in California during 12-14 September 2018.
