Climate Goals and
Global Engagement

India’s progress on climate change remains strong, despite COVID-19 and the ensuing economic slowdown. India announced new climate goals at COP26 in Glasgow that are significantly more ambitious than its Paris Agreement targets. Key goals are to meet 50 per cent of its energy requirements with renewable energy 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. India has historically contributed little to the climate crisis, but as one of the world’s largest economies, the country is critical to solving it.
