US Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry lauded India’s efforts to emerge as a global leader in renewable energy with some of the biggest companies signing a declaration on climate change and pledging to go carbon neutral.
Kerry is on a four-day visit to India, from April 5 to April 8, during which he will meet representatives from the Union government, the private sector and NGOs.
“India is getting the job done on climate, pushing the curve. You (India) are indisputably a world leader already in the deployment of renewable energy,” Kerry said. Kerry was speaking in Delhi, where he held talks with government leaders as part of a diplomatic effort to get countries to commit themselves to net zero carbon emissions and slow down global warming.
“India, in particular, is a red hot investment opportunity because of its clean energy transition. Indian industry is already stepping up and demonstrating leadership,” US envoy was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.
