Climate Goals and Global

As one of the world’s largest economies with a large population vulnerable to climate impacts, India uniquely impacts and is impacted by the global climate crisis. India announced new climate goals that are significantly more ambitious than its Paris Agreement targets. Key goals are to meet 50 per cent of its electricity capacity through fossil-free sources by 2030 and reduce the carbon intensity of its economy to less than 45 percent within the same time period. India has also committed to achieving economy-wide net zero emissions by 2070. NRDC India advises stakeholders seeking to advance India’s climate leadership and global engagement.

Advise stakeholders on how to develop a strategy to increase climate finance and clean energy investment in India and other developing countries.
