Salient Points of PM’s address on the occasion of World Environment Day 2018 at Vigyan Bhawan on 05 Jun, 2018

As we celebrate this important occasion today, we recall our ancient ethos of universal brotherhood. This has been expressed in the famous Sanskrit phrase– Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam – the world is one family.

India is the fastest growing economy in the world today. We are committed to raising the standards of living of our people.

We are engaged in a massive push towards renewable energy generation. We have targeted generation of one hundred and seventy-five GigaWatts of solar and wind energy by 2022.

We aim to provide an electricity connection to every household, which will further reduce dependence on environmentally degrading forms of fuel.

We are a young Nation. To generate employment, we are working towards making India a global manufacturing hub.
