UN chief Antonio Guterres lauds Mahindra’s clean energy work

Mahindra’s work in promoting clean technology and sustainable energy praised by UN chief Antonio Guterres

India can lead the world’s transformation to clean energy and become a “global superpower” in the fight against climate change if it speeds up its shift from fossil fuels to renewable energy, said UN chief Antonio Guterres.

His remarks were a part of his speech, delivered online at The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI). In his speech, Guterres referenced the innovative steps taken by Mahindra in embracing clean technology and contributing to a sustainable energy future as exemplary work that is being carried out in the country.

In his address, he also called on India to be at the helm of an ambitious global leadership agenda on clean energy and climate action.

Guterres was speaking on the future of renewables and focused on a ‘green’ economic recovery in a post-COVID-19 world, wherein countries would drastically reduce their dependence on fossil fuels like coal.

He further added that investments in renewable energy, clean transport and energy efficiency could create 9 million jobs annually for the next three years.
