India has reduced its emissions rate by 33% in 14 years

According to a new report, India's greenhouse gas emissions intensity rate –the total amount of greenhouse gas emissions emitted for every unit increase of gross domestic product– dropped by 33% in 14 years, from 2005 to 2019. This shows that India is on the way to meeting its commitment to reduce emissions intensity by 45% from the 2005 level by 2030.
This is such great news that deserves a climate love 💚
This reduction is largely due to a push towards renewables –even if fossil fuel continues to dominate the energy mix–, a substantial increase in forest cover, and schemes promoting non-fossil generation and targeting emissions in industrial, automotive, and energy sectors.

    I read a lot about off shore wind power via on line sources, but I don't recall reading anything about initiatives from India, either at national or state level to utilise off shore wind power. India has around 7500km of coastline, according to a quick web search. It seems to be a shame that there's no effort to utilise what must be a potentially vast renewable power resource from this nation. Furthermore, this seems to be a missed opportunity to establish India as a manufacturer of wind turbines on a large scale. The fixed bottom and floating wind industries could be a vast new employer for the country. The USA, Brazil and many others are all waking up to this. Where is India on this?

      India has been making great strides in its climate change commitments and in 2014 was the first country in the world to implement a CSR law, making it mandatory for all businesses to give 2% of their annual net profits to CSR initiatives.

                        Going by this record, India is taking the necessary measures required to ensure that it redeems its reputation as the world's largest polluting nation.
