Pre-Event Leaders Speak
"India is faced with a formidable challenge of maintaining rapid and inclusive growth but through clean and sustainable forms of energy. When one juxtaposes this primary objective with India’s commitments under the Paris Agreement, the challenges become evident. TERI’s analysis suggests that the scale of transformation is very ambitious and would entail a path that has never before been followed by other countries. And the key to the country’s transition towards low carbon development will be progressive Indian businesses. I look forward to meeting you at the India Sustainability Leadership Summit on 12th June 2019 in Mumbai. The Summit urges all stakeholders to embrace solutions that will transform our future choices while aligning our growth path with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development."
