The emission of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere has caused global warming to an unprecedented level endangering human life on earth. It is strongly felt by the experts and the world leaders alike that curtailing of carbon emissions is most necessary to bring down temperature to the target fixed by the Paris Agreement. Net-zero emission or carbon neutrality is now the buzzword of every climate talk. A majority of countries have declared the year 2050 as their target to achieve the net-zero emission level. India has consistently opposed to this proposal. It has now set the target for 2070. India is a fast-developing economy, and its energy demand is also increasing exponentially. However, India’s focus is on developing the green energy sources other than coal. This paper explores the various options of green energy being adopted by India and its approach towards carbon-neutrality.

Keywords: Net-zero, carbon-neutrality, climate finance, green energy, greenhouse gases.
