He also highlighted the responsible management of oceanic resources.
“Responsible use and management of ocean resources is of vital importance. I look forward to the adoption of G20 high-level principles for a sustainable and resilient blue and ocean-based economy,” the Prime Minister said.
PM Modi pointed out that India is one of the top five countries in the world in terms of installed renewable energy capacity.
“We have also set a target of attaining net zero by 2070. We continue to collaborate with our partners through our alliance, including the international solar alliance, CDRI, and the leadership group for industry transition. India has consistently been at the forefront of taking action on biodiversity conservation, protection, and enrichment,” PM Modi informed delegates.
