Developed Nations That Enjoyed Fruits Of Energy Should Cut Emissions: India

New Delhi: India has urged the developed nations that have “enjoyed the fruits of energy” to reach net zero faster so that emerging economies use some “carbon space” to drive growth.

‘Net zero emissions’ is to achieve an overall balance between greenhouse gas emissions produced and greenhouse gas emissions taken out of the atmosphere.

Prior to the UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties or COP26 in Scotland, India’s representative Piyush Goyal said India will “represent the voice of the developing world” as it fights climate change for a better planet for future generations.

“Developed nations have enjoyed the fruits of energy and they will need to go for net zero faster, so that developing nations have some carbon space. For now there is no adequate technology to absorb large amount of clean energy into grids. There is a need to look at more technology and innovation before we can identify the year (for achieving net zero),” Goyal was quoted as saying by news agency AFP.

“India pushed for safeguarding interests of the developing world. For the first time, G20 has identified sustainable and responsible consumption as critical enablers for achieving climate goals,” said Goyal.
