India only G20 nation on track to meet Paris pact’s 2°C goal

India is the only country among G20 nations which is on track to meet the Paris Agreement on climate change unlike the top three emitters — China, the US and the EU. 

India’s track record of being the only 2°C compatible country was flagged in a report released by a coalition of 14 global thinktanks, including TERI, which showed that the other 19 leading and emerging economies were far from achieving their goals. Though China has declared that it will be carbon neutral by 2060, it is in the ‘highly insufficient’ category according to the climate action tracker while India is ‘compatible’ with the 2-degree warming goal.
