Secretary at the Ministry of Environment, Forest, and Climate Change C K Mishra said global learning and local solutions were the key, with solutions emerging to deal with climate change from within the country.
"India is a crucial player in the journey to combat climate change and SMEs play a critical role in it. It is imperative to reward and encourage SMEs, and for the government to create a conducive ecosystem to help them scale up," he was quoted as saying in a statement.
"The narrative is to work together towards development and ecology conservation for which the government and industry must work in collaboration," he said.
Two Indian SMEs with innovative cleantech solutions were announced as the winners of the sixth edition of WWF-India's Climate Solver Awards held Monday.
Climate Solver is WWF's global innovation platform that recognises transformative innovations in technology and business models that substantially contribute towards mitigating climate change and enhancing clean energy access.
