Power Minister RK Singh hailed India as a global leader in energy transition, and a trailblazer. “Our per capita carbon emissions are one-third of global levels. In the 2015 Paris Summit we pledged that by 2030 we would have 40 percent of our total energy from non-fossil fuels; we’re already at 42.8 percent seven years ahead of the deadline. We have also emerged as the most attractive markets for renewables,” said Singh at the Fest.
Environment Minister Bhupender Yadav applauded the Sustainable Is Attainable initiative and said such actions galvanize community action. “One Earth, One Future is the right approach to development. We are working with the whole-of-government and whole-of-society approach to fight climate change. All arms of the government are working together to ensure Sustainable Is Attainable,” he said.
The one-day SIA Fest, which was a culmination of a mass movement Sustainable is Attainable by India’s two leading corporate groups, not only celebrated India’s rapid march towards a clean energy future, but also listed priorities and set goals for the future.
"SIA Fest is a unique celebration of a mission which promises that sustainable is indeed attainable in our country. It has helped us to create a narrative around how a diverse set of stakeholders have to play a critical role to bring about lasting change. Sabka Prayas or active participation of all will ensure India's journey to energy transition. India is well poised to show the world how a growing economy can drive this transition to clean energy. The movement Sustainable Is Attainable aims to enable a better understanding of the conversation around sustainability and green transition,” said Dr. Praveer Sinha, CEO & MD of Tata Power.
Applauding the initiatives of the Government of India, Dr. Sinha highlighted how various initiatives including solarisation of agriculture, electrification of rural areas, and enabling commercial and industrial establishments to adopt rooftop solutions are driving this change towards a greener future.
Appreciating the efforts of India and the European Union, H.E. Ugo Astuto, Ambassador of the European Union to India and Bhutan said, “Both India and the European Union are making massive investments in the transition towards a greener energy mix. India and the European Union together can help shape the global agenda, and work together for the common global good. The fight against climate change is an important component of our strategic partnership. India has experience in terms of scale which is going to be instrumental for global solutions.”
The fest saw participation from corporate leaders, ambassadors and delegates of foreign embassies in India.
