APAC Energy Buzz: Will India set a net zero target?

Report summary

Developing economies have long argued that they should not be expected to do the same as the developed world to tackle carbon. But for India, as the world’s third-largest carbon emitter after China and the US, this increasingly looks like a difficult position to maintain. As COP26 approaches, pressure on India to commit to net zero is increasing. Will India announce a net zero target ahead of the world’s most important climate summit and, if so, what might it look like?
