The world is at an inflection point in the climate crisis and India has a major role to play by taking a pro-active stance towards international climate negotiations. Mint and Danfoss come together to unravel stories covering India's pathway for achieving its climate change commitments and the strategy to combat air and water pollution crisis. This theme also aims to capture the country's global engagement through international climate treaties such as Minamata Convention, Paris Climate Agreement and the Montreal Protocol and to discuss the business opportunities that have emerged given India's new emission standards.
