Union Minister Prakash Javadekar today said India is the only country on track to achieve the 2°C goal under the Paris Agreement among all the G20 nations.
 
In a tweet, Mr Javadekar said India is walking the talk on climate change. He added that the 2°C goal aims to keep the global temperature rise below 2°C from pre-industrial levels by 2100.
 
 
According to the Climate Transparency report (CT) 2020 released on Wednesday, India's actions on climate targets set under 2015 Paris Agreement makes it compatible to achieve curbs on global warming by 2 degrees Celsius.
 
The climate action tracker has put China in the 'highly sufficient category' despite its promise to become carbon neutral by 2060, according to a report in Times of India. The report said that India has promised to reduce its emissions by 33-35 per cent and take action on energy, waste, transport and other sectors.
