Delhi to Paris: Corporate Vision on Climate Change aims to be the Indian business vision on the various aspects of tackling climate change and aligning them to the Government of India schemes and programs, in the given regulatory framework. This corporate India vision document captures the interventions across the industries

Tackling climate change is an inclusive, multi–stakeholder process and the active participation of the public and corporate sector is essential. Businesses can no longer remain mute to the overwhelming impacts of climate change. It is necessary to enhance existing as well as new initiatives to maximize the impact and contribute significantly towards tackling climate change. India's participation in climate negotiations assumes greater significance as it is the world's largest democracy and the frequency and intensity of climatic events are affecting the country's economy.

This initiative focuses on four key areas:

  • Improving the Efficiency of Energy Use
  • Expanding the Use of Renewable Energy
  • Ensuring Water Availability in a Changing Climate
  • Efficient Waste Management

The Journey

This initiative commenced at the High Level Corporate Dialogue on 4th Feb, 2015 in presence of 250 participants from across the industry, over 100 top companies, more than 45 CEOs and over 120 senior colleagues from the business fraternity.
