To meet the required CO2e emissions reductions to avoid catastrophic climate change, we need to source more of our energy from renewable sources like wind & solar.

We’re working in support of the roll out of renewable energy projects across India in a manner that doesn’t further destroy areas of high conservation value. We’re implementing and increasing the emphasis on readily available, cost-effective Natural Climate Solutions, such as reforestation, and drive policy changes to accelerate our transition to a clean energy future.

And in northwest India we are working with farmers to end crop residue burning to prevent millions of tonnes of greenhouse gases from entering the atmosphere.
