NEW DELHI, 14 September 2021: Mr Bhupender Yadav, Minister for Environment, Forest & Climate Change & Labour & Employment, Government of India today said, "Private sector plays a pivotal role in creating low carbon sustainable economies.

Speaking on sustainable technologies, Mr Yadav stated, "The biggest takeaway for all today is to collaborate towards jointly developing sustainable technologies across different sectors at an affordable cost.

The presence of highly skilled workforce in India and a well-established research and development infrastructure from Europe could be well harnessed productively for this purpose."

He further highlighted India's initiative in Solar energy stating, "India launched the National Solar Mission to establish itself as a global leader in solar energy framing policies with the aim to speedy diffuse solar ventures and technologies across country.  India has also undertaken various initiatives both nationally and globally for promoting renewable energy."

In the Hydrogen energy sector, he made a special mention on India's initiative-Hydrogen Energy Mission 2021-22 for generation of hydrogen green power sources.

Speaking on the Indo-Europe relations he said, "India and Europe remain key economic partners who are all set to scale up their cooperation in the years to come. India has bilateral engagements with Germany, UK and Denmark in the energy sector in the European region. As a result of these engagements, managing significant achievements can be made in the area of sustainable and green technologies."

As a way ahead in future of partnerships, he suggested that there are a lot of emerging sustainable technologies that can significantly contribute to India-Europe partnerships such as battery storage, green hydrogen, offshore wind, energy installation or commissioning solar thermal waste energy, bioenergy, wind energy and hydrogen energy, energy storage, etc.

To enhance stronger relations between the two regions, Mr Yadav stated, "The issue of sustainable development, poverty eradication and climate justice which are important pillars of Paris Agreement and UNFCCC to strengthen Indo-Europe collaborations on sustainable technologies."

Addressing the session on future of sustainable technologies in India-Europe Partnerships, Ms Elisabeth Staudinger, President, Asia Pacific Siemens Healthineers Germany said, "We believe healthcare will become a part of country's critical infrastructure. Healthcare expenditure will move from an expense to becoming an investment."

"There is no innovation at Siemens Healthineers that would not have contributions from India. We are increasingly engaging with our team in India and global teams," he added.

Dr Anish Shah, Managing Director and CEO, Mahindra & Mahindra, India said, "Protecting environment is not a choice but a necessity and the right thing to do. Technology of carbon capturing is vital to achieve the target of net zero."
