Goals of Modi government to cut carbon emissions

India to cut its carbon emissions by 35% by 2030?

When it comes to the emission of carbon, India comes third, just behind China and the USA. It is a top position which we should not be very proud of. The Modi government feels that if few steps and corrective measures can be taken, then India can cut its carbon emissions by 35% by the year 2030.

India has pledged in the recently concluded UN Summit that it is ‘committed to cut its carbon emissions by 35% by the year 2030. Here we present you with the goals that the Modi government has set for itself to do its bit for the global climate action.

– To put forward and further propagate a healthy and sustainable way of living based on traditions and values of conservations and modernisation.

– To adopt a climate friendly and cleaner path than the one followed by others at corresponding levels of development.

– To reduce the emissions intensity of its GDP by 33-35% by 2030 from the 2005 level.

– To achieve about 40% cumulative electric powered installed capacity from non-fossil fuel-based energy resources by 2030 with the help of transfer of technology and low-cost international finance, including from Green Climate Fund.

– To create an additional carbon sink of 2.5 billion tonnes of CO2, equivalent through additional and forest and green cover by 2030.

– To adapt to climate change by enhancing investments in developing programmes in sectors vulnerable to climate change such as agriculture, water resources, Himalayan regions, coastal regions, health and disaster management.
