India to exceed Paris agreement expectations beyond imagination
New Delhi : Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday said that India is on track to achieve Paris agreement targets and will exceed them beyond targets. Compared to 2005, India has reduced its emission by 21 per cent.
Delivering his message at the virtual summit, PM Modi said the conference marks the fifth anniversary of the Paris Agreement -- the most ambitious step in the fight against climate change.
"Today, as we are looking to set our sights even higher, we must also not lose sight of the past. We must not only revise our ambitions, but also review our achievements against targets already set," he said.
"Only then can our voices be credible for future generations," PM Modi said.
