He said at the ‘FICCI Leeds-2022’ event here that global warming has caused many natural disasters and if this continues, it will have disastrous consequences.
Shah said, “Our Prime Minister (Narendra Modi) has made some very bold statements, including achieving 50 per cent renewable energy by 2030, and it is really an acknowledgment of the fact that India can lead the world on this front. ”
He further said, “Many Indian companies are world leaders in this regard.” Shah said, “This is something that we cannot ignore. We cannot say that we are a developed country or a developing country and it has to be resolved by others. We should be able to take the lead and find solutions.
Expressing concern over the current global warming, he said, “We are today on a path that is not sustainable. We are seeing many natural disasters around us. This is when the temperature is 1.1 degrees above normal, and this path will take us to two and a half degrees, which will be disastrous in many ways.
He called for collective efforts to fight climate change.
On this occasion, Sanjiv Mehta, CEO and Managing Director of Hindustan Unilever said that India can move forward on the path of growth by reducing carbon emissions. He said there was no option but to do so.
