This white paper has been prepared by World Economic Forum in collaboration with Kearney and Observer Research Foundation. This paper builds the case for why India’s green transformation is an attractive, vital and mandatory component of its overall economic transformation. A Green New Deal for India will necessarily implicate the five sectors that contribute to almost all its GHG emissions: Energy, Mobility, Industry, Green Buildings and Agriculture.
In addition to the five sectoral pillars, India will need four cross-sectoral enablers for its green transition. These include an accelerated approach to green technology innovation, an overarching framework to catalyse green finance, an integrated approach to carbon, capture, utilization and storage, and a plan for climate adaptation.
